I am not a webmaster and am completely unskilled at HTML/PHP.
I thank the creators of KompoZer for their product - it made it possible for me to put all this stuff here.

This website is a work in progress.  It's pretty stable right now, but there will be changes periodically to ensure that it remains somewhat current.

I have a Google  Analytics script on each page.  I only use it to see what sort of traffic I get and where it's coming from.
I'm not a professional webmaster, so  I couldn't do anything further with this stuff even if I wanted to (which I don't).
