Note from Paul


If you see a box with a little red X in it, click on it, and a picture should come up.   For some reason, on the net version, the bigger pictures come up, but the little thumbnails versions do not show up.  On my disk, both are there.

Speaking of which, you really need to send for a disk with the entire contents of this site.  I have taken many bold actions, putting back on the web information I got from the web.  It is just possible I will be asked to close down all, or part of my site.  If that has happened, you will want to have written my address down.  (see the contact info elsewhere.)  The limit of keeping this to One CD is about reached.  I have ten times the information on this site, elsewhere.
