Please scroll down for the titles of all webpages

posted (there are forty-one in two categories)


Please note:


This is for those who won’t read something longer or more complicated. Want it short? Like it easy? Then this is for you. There’s no particular place you have to begin, but I’m arranging them in the way that makes most sense. So if you want to read them all --- and don’t know where to start --- then go to the first and read them one at a time until you reach the end. No link is longer than a few brief paragraphs and I stay away from fancy words or big sentences that might scare some people off. Dig in and enjoy!
