We will undoubtedly destroy the planet. It is inevitable. Don't get me wrong, I do not want to see it happen, but we have not progressed at all. Yes you are right, technology has and so has food production. One deed that will never change is that the world is full of male homosapiens loving the kill, loving the dominance and will breed more to regress again.

Well I have completed a singer songwriters website using this template and adapting it. In the process I have entered his music onto 20 music platforms including iTunes and Amazon MP3. Please see the links below for the site and his news article about where to get hold of his new album. I am the administrator of it until I can teach him how to get the hang of updating the pages.

Here is the main page

Keeping up to date with all the new advancements in CS6 was intensive enough but now with CC I can not afford the monthly subscription. I have been told that some people in the industry still use CS5 so I am not in a big rush.

It truly is indispensable for InDesign!
