  • Hello Visitors

    Just a quick hello!

    So in reality I have been so busy working I managed to let my website(s) become obsolete.  As a result my peers pressured me into transitioning to the world of WordPress which displaces the archaic Frontpage sites… I hope the slow transition yet intuitive approach to WordPress will make my life easier.
