SB.com

Dear visitors,

After months and months of internet problems and frustrations, I can finally confirm that SB.com is back! I am so happy.

Lots of things happened in your webmiss’ personal life: I got married and started a new education as a higher level nurse, but the biggest news is that I am pregnant :) We are very happy! Just something I wanted to share with you all.

Now back to Brad!

I will update Brad news at the forum and will mention the most recent news here, as usual. I have also lots of images to add, thank to SB’s loyal friend Vaska. Thank you all for sticking with SB.

Registration to the SB Gallery is now possible again, I had deactivated it for safety reasons while I was unable to manage it.

And last but not least, happy belated birthday Brad and happy holidays to you all!
