2-17-2012 Have completed most of the updates for now. Plan to work on some of the other pages at later dates. The planned changes are just cosmetic at this point unless I find broken links or viewers give me input on other content that I decide to ad. I will probably add another guest book and counter at some point when I find a good free one.
2-12-2012 We are in the process of doing some computer & software updates. When all this is complete I plan to make some changes to this website. Some of the things that are currently on the site no longer work and some will be going out of service soon. I would welcome any input on what content you would like to see added to the site and any information on links that are already on it that have quit working or go to something other than expected. I would like to know what page you found the bad link on as there are so many to look through. If you know of a website that has information that would go along with something on this site, send me the link and I can add it to this site
1-26-2012 Have fixed our site so I can update it now. We were having problems and think it is all worked out now.
