Anonymous comments are allowed and I’ve decided to allow comments without my prior moderation — that will change if vulgar and/or spam comments are made.

I’ve also noticed that pages containing lots of images, as most of mine do, load more quickly in Firefox than in MS Internet Explorer. If you’re curious about what the hidden background image looks like, click here or if you want to know a LOT more about the image, click here. Click a button below to open an Index page. These and other quick links are also in the the left pane.
