New Richie Sowa Spiral Island web site

Blogger is a great blogging tool, but it was time for a dedicated website to host Richie Sowa's Spiral Island information and history of his island wonder. The new website is based on Joomla, the ever popular open-source content management system.

Link to New Spiral Island webportal

As of May 3, 2006 I have been busy developing a new webportal for Richie Sowa's Spiral Island to maintain the history of my friend Richie Sowa's island wonder, and to allow for more flexibility of adding content and features to the site.

Last year, I moved back to Canada after an illness that kept me sidelined, and I did not feel well enough to maintain the Spiral Island blog site on Blogger. But in the past few months, my health has improved considerably, and I decided to start on this new webportal project after learning more about the many capabilities of the Joomla CMS (content management system) for creating a powerful webportal.

Well, after one day of busy bee work, I am pleased to announce that the new Richie Sowa Spiral Island webportal site is up and running.

The URL for this new Richie Sowa Spiral Island webportal is at this location:

And this time, I do not plan to get sick again, so my goal is to populate this site with Spiral Island content and history, and I vow to make sure that this new site will be kept up to date, rather than sadly dwindle like the blog did when I moved to Switzerland.

Late tonight, I have been busy sorting through the thousands of photos of my Yucatan adventure photos, and many of these pictures are of my time spent on Spiral Island during 2001 with Richie Sowa, Kenny Coleman, Carlos Yuescas, and others.

I will be adding many stories of my adventures, experiences on Spiral Island, and of my friendship with Richie, Kenny Coleman, Carlos Yuescas, and many other people that I met when I lived in the Yucatan in late 2000-01.

The URL for this new Richie Sowa Spiral Island webportal is at this location:

This old blog site will be maintained until the new site get ranked at the top of the search engines.

I hope that you will visit the new Richie Sowa Spiral Island webportal.
