Site update and situation 29 December 2011

Well... I am about to lose my job due to ill health in a few weeks, this has been an ongoing situation since January 2011. I will be able to put more time into the site and add new topics.  Are there any issues that you want or think should be covered? Let me know.
http://www.ami-diabetic.com/  is secure for another 12 months or so and I wish to make all information about diabetes available in one place, free for everyone.  I will do my best to make sure that this is the case for at least the next 12 month... After that is anyone’s guess due to financial constraints.
I hope that you have all enjoyed the site in its first year.  I wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year for 2012. 

Look out for my tweets :)

Google AdSence did me over!

I have had clicks to the site and had around £45.  I got an email to say that there was ' invalid activity' on the account.  They will not explain anyting more and an appeal was turned down.  I have also heard others just this week who's accounts have also been disabled.  Disabled accounts will not recieve any of thier earned money.  This just shows that a greedy company gets greedier by the day.

I will never use google again!
