You can also buy stuff here in this fledgling online shop:



You know it makes sense. Currently sourcing supplies. We actually have a website at www.dogsolitude.co.uk. It's very new, and some things are working a bit strangely to be honest, but it works, and there are a couple of other small online shops in the offing (one deals with Japanese stuff which is miles off being finished, the other is called World of Workcraft and is about 75% there).

If you don't like the current housing market, why not buy a stylish DS_UK t-shirt to help you voice your disapproval here?

Whilst you're here, if you're using Internet Explorer, please use something sensible. Firefox is much better. Making my website took a few days to get ti working, followed bya good couple of weeks tearing my hair out trying to get IE to understand the HTML and CSS properly.

Do not expect personal information to be published on this LJ, or to be able to comment. It is far better to argue about things down the pub over a good beer, wine or brandy. Preferably in leather seats with little brass rivets in.

Whereas comments are welcomed, it is not always possible or desirable for a reply to be provided via this medium. LJ is not deemed a suitable substitute for social interaction.

All posts on this journal are public. There are no 'hidden' posts (well, there is one) or 'friends only' posts here. Reading this journal is completely optional - it is possible to have a full and satisfying life without ever going anywhere near it.

We look forward to moving forward in synergy with you.
