Homepage Info

Where to find a homepage spot - learn html and all kinds of other things you need you need to know!

It will help you if you will browse all the way to the end of the page to see what's here before you start clicking away <g>

 If you find any broken links please let me know (copy the broken item and past it in an e-mail - please remember to give me the page heading above so I can find it on this page to fix.). Thanks Linda

It works best to open these links in a new window. That way you can get back here easily.
