Strange to think that Playafun has only been running a year and a half and we're already so big that it has become necessary to diversify. But then that's E-commerce for you. As my old friend Bill likes to muse over the Chardonay, "One year's experience on the Net is equivalent to seven years in Hell."
Many of our readers, i.e. Sid and Doris Bonkers, Neasden, seeking a safe haven for their savings, have asked us about the Playafun Group of Companies and the Venture Funds it represents.
Therefore, for the convenience of investors, collaborators and future clients, it gives me great pleasure to introduce this breakdown of the Playafun Group of Companies.
PS I've had so much fun with the cowboy hat Santa Claus brought me this year that I insisted on having my picture taken.
One of our best known vehicles is, of course, our Social Pages. We'd been in business only a few weeks when a major high-class weekly approached us to see if it was possible to transfer their concept on the net. They are now all growed up and have their own domain.
You will all remember:

Dame Anna of Jameson goes shopping for Cava

As anyone who has experienced late nite TV will know, the future doesn't just consist of reedin, writin an rithmetic. There's the Last Frontier to be thought about.
You go through your awkward, spotty teenage years reading sci-fi just to grow up and find that all everyone wants to do is mutter into their mobile phones.
As we all know, with success comes responsibility. A couple of months back now, we were approached by an important municipal party here in Castelldefels, AVVIC, seeking help with putting up a website. We were honoured to be of assistance.
Playafun offered its massive technological and artistic resources to the cause of AVVIC. And enthusiastically collaborated in, if not inspired, the campaign to preserve Ca n'Aymerich, an old quarry, and common land, the council hopes to give away to speculators.
Unfortunately only in Spanish.
The latter project is also a collaboration with the Bellamar Skuter Klub (one of Playafun's many social programmes), whose guide to Bellamar won the Palme d'Or in Lausanne, and who's Graffiti, produced while in remand school, Playafun was proud to display.
Of course this massive Enterprise would not have been possible without the advice and help with programs from many friends. Many thanks to The Barcelona Review, the boys at Duual, and Andy, whose sites we cannot link to for fear of attack by Cyber-Pirates. Who'd of thought it possible? What an exciting world!
Also Sandra in Montréal for invaluable advice and feedback on Photoshop. Garth for the sporadic photie. Mish for information on web hosts. Dawson for his experience.
One cloud though, we're still waiting for a missive from John McDonald, our Rome correspondent.
