Miscellaneous Links

Clicking on any of the links below will take you away from my website, and will open the page you've selected in a brand new browser window. Just close the window in order to return to my Resource Centre. I do not claim any responsibility for material posted on any of these sites. If you find a dead or inappropriate link please email me and let me know.

All right, I'll freely admit I'm having a hard time classifying some of the links I've collected over the years. On this page you'll find a mish-mosh of things, in no particular order, that I hope you will somehow find useful. Enjoy!
