Welcome. Happy New Year!

“Happy New Year to all of the visitors to this site and, of course, to our loyal subscribers. Thank you for your interest and we, the team at Focused Friends, wish you all the very best of good things for 2021.

We hope you like the new look to our site. We have added a ‘featured articles slider’ at the top of our home page. This will be updated regularly. We have had a subtle colour change and our ‘home’ page is now accessed by clicking on our site title ‘Focused Friends’.

It is no doubt an understatement to say that 2020 was not a year many of us would care to remember and, sadly, that it was a year that many of us will not forget; for all the worst reasons. Let us hope that now we will see a change and that all that has caused pain and suffering will be replaced by joy and happiness in 2021.

Please do read back over our articles, if you are new to us. You can get to know the team by reading our profile pages located in the menu at the top of this front page. Hey – if you enjoy us a lot, why not contact us and offer us an article? We are happy to post articles by our readers. Find out more about this in our main menu. Don’t worry, you don’t have to be articulate, eloquent or a great writer. Just be your authentic self. In fact, we also encourage you to send in your photos or videos if you would rather present something in either format, rather than writing. Don’t be shy….drop us a line.

We hope you enjoy all that we publish in 2021. As ever, may I encourage you to participate by hitting the ‘like’ button, if your enjoy an article. Or, perhaps you would support us by sharing an article of ours on your social media? We absolutely love to read your comments, so do join in with the subjects we post about, with your own comments below each article.

Stay safe, everyone. Wherever you live, please remember; wash your hands, keep hands away from your face and maintain space from others…until things improve with regard to Covid-19.

– Deano Parsons; on behalf of the whole Focused Friends team (Deano, Tracy, Debbie and Margaret).

Please visit our social media sites and please share our posts and videos. Thanks.

Open the magazine by selecting from the main menu at the top of the page. We recommend you head straight to our home page, which is accessed by clicking on our site title ‘Focused Friends‘, as a starting point.

You will also find useful links to your favourite members of Focused Friends, as well as links to specific themes, in the panel at the bottom of the page.

Remember, if you enjoy Focused Friends, please share our articles with your own friends.

Happy reading!
