a continuing interest in. They will eventually lead to various links across the internet.
Currently, this entire section is under (re)-construction.

This is a link to miscellaneous websites that haven't, as of yet, and possibly never will
graduate to status in my various categories. There are some dead links here. Click Here


You can use this tool (courtesy of google.com) to search the net for information on almost any subject
that you are interested in exploring. Simply type in a few descriptive words of what you are looking for
(e. g. movie parodies, Adolph Hitler, etc), click on search, and the Google Search Engine will do the rest.

For best results, use the following format:
+"term" +"term" +"term" for however much description
you need to define what you are searching for; e.g.
+"Holman Hunt" +"paintings" +"The Shadow of Death"

The space between the closing quotation marks
and the + sign(s) is/are important.

To extend the search, you can try deleting the quotation marks or rephrasing
or changing the parameters. Click on "search" on this page (above) for other ideas.

Happy Searching!

Out of the Mainstream

Have you ever thought about what the word "mainstream" means?
The best place to fish? The traffic flow on Main Street? A new way to
get high? Click here to get a different perspective. It's food for thought.
It's why millions of us will be reluctantly voting Republican this year (2008);
folks that would be voting Democrat, IF there was a Democrat worth voting for.
