The More You Know – NBC Message To All

Taking over this blog after my best friend passed away, is not an easy choice to make. I have received quite a bit of mixed reactions. Personally, I think it is the right thing to do. I am not out to take over his place in the cyberspace, all I wanted to do is to share information, like I have always done when he was still around. In fact Andrew Peters profile will always be in this blog, in honour of the guy that started it all. This will always be his blog and I am just continuing what he had started.

I’m doing things a little differently nowadays, instead of passing on articles to him to post, I am actually doing the writing and the posting.

For this post, in memory of someone close to me, and coincidentally, NBC has released a newly revised campaign named “The More You Know“. It website of friendly reminder to look after yourselves. Please visit it and think about how it can affect you and your loved ones.
