Welcome to my exhaustively
eclectic site. I've been sharing my views and trying out design and
HTML here for well over half my life now. I'm hoping the site dredges up waves of nostalgia
for the days of yore when random personal web sites, instead
of mega-corporate social networks, were the backbone of the web. This is what happens when I have 10 minutes of free time every week for 20 years: I make lists and take photos of absolutely everything I'm interested in.
Perusing the site will also give you some insight into how I became interested in the topic of my 2010 book, The Secret Peace: Exposing the Positive Trend of World Events. Please check out the Secret Peace blog, and if you go to the book on Amazon you can read some of it for free. If you have any
recommendations for the site, or just want to reach out and chat, let
me know. Hope you enjoy the site!

You can also see lots of photos of the city and all of us over the years on the photo page.

I first made this site in 1995. Since then, I've redesigned it from scratch every few years. This time (the 6th), I couldn't have done it without the work of some amazing friends:
