We like our websites simple, slick and fast. You won't find too much in the way of widgets and gizmos here.
We consciously avoid making our sites dependent on any particular platform; this should all work just as happily on
a BSD Unix system as on a Microsoft box. (If not, please
All browsers have a "back" key. We figure you probably know how to use it. Therefore we don't have a fancy
navigation structure; everything is indexed on the main page, and that's it. Use the "back" key to back
out of the structure, or click on the picture at the top of each page, or on the link at the foot of each page, to
return to the site's home page.
On the other hand maybe you would prefer lots of bells and whistles.
Let us know what you like,
what you hate, and what you'd like to see added.
