my web sites dont blow whistles, don't sing to you, don't flash in your eyes or even 'look pretty' but what they do is give you the information you are seeking without dressing it up.

This is an amateur site, I do not claim to be 100% correct all the time. I reply on research and emails from which I get much information and images. Many of the images on this are mine as well. I also have had help from 'real' experts like Prof Stephen Harding, Colin Schroeder and Ken Burnley.

Its amazing how many web sites of reference and links have vanished without trace. Its as if people gave up. I have been scvouring these pages checking upon links and references that I have been giving for over a decade now, and a good 95% have vanished - gone! This site has been going over a decade now and will probasbly die with me. I keep it going at my own expence, I am now nearly 68. It too won't last forever.
