webmaster's corner

My apologies — especially to our artist friends that have sent us links — for neglecting some portions of the website.

On September 6, 2007 my life partner passed away after an extended period of declining health.The demands on my time to help him keep body, soul, and finances together — while cheerfully given — unfortunately took me away from some of my webmaster duties. I expect to be back-on-track within a very few weeks.
