A short but growing list of links to information much better than you find in my pages.

Please check out these links and spend a lot of time on the Internet for additional information.  I am amazed at the quantity of information available online.  I should not be so amazed as I have learned so much in a couple of years that I never suspected existed.  I see from letters and articles that others have learned the same things and have published them.
