Oh wow...it has been a while, hasn't it?

Okay, so no new content just yet, but with Geocities shutting down, I first wanted to get the site is up and running on its brand new domain! I'm still working out the kinks, but after a six and a half year hiatus (ack!) I guess I shouldn't have to ask for your patience while I get the site back on its feet! <grin>

4/14/03   Yikes! Sorry about the little sabbatical there, but things got busy on me. On the plus side, we're back in action with some fun new material. Enjoy!
