Helpful Links

In this list are sites which I have found helpful. They are categorized in a very general sense. Some items listed in one category could, just as easily, fit into another. I hope the links are helpful to you.

Please note: Thank you to all those friends who have added to the list in the past. However, due to difficulty in maintaining and ensuring that all links are functional, we will no longer be accepting new link suggestions or adding to the list.
