I don't understand what kind of website you are running? I'm on a page that talks about St. Catherines Carnival (From Aug 14th through the 18th 2012) then below that is a listing for St. Roch's Car Show (Sunday Aug 21st). But wait! Aug 21st is on a Tuesday. OH I SEE! It's Sunday August 21st 2011, NOT 2012. YOU POSTED AN EVENT FROM LAST YEAR ON A PAGE WITH AN EVENT FROM THIS YEAR! OF CORSE! THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE! I NEED TO COME BACK TO THIS WEBSITE EVERY DAY! I REALLY NEED TO COME BACK TO BE INFORMED AND BE ONTOP OF EVERYTHING!
