This site could be frozen for 7 -10 days. My site was built using
Yahoo Sitebuilder but Yahoo is no longer updating this program so a new
site has to be built using Wordpress. Yahoo is developing the first 10 pages and
will then teach me how to do it using the new program. Apparently my present
site will be frozen during this process but I will be back. When they said frozen
I'm hoping it just means I can't add or delete files. Since there are hundreds of
pages to be done I can't say how long it will take to be fully functional. I may
have to convert their work to resemble my present day site. Please bear with me
and I promise I will be up and running ASAP. I will be working on the new site at
least 12 - 14 hours a day.
Thank you for your past support.

This new site is being updated regularly and it will be much improved before too long. Please be patient, give it time, and check back regularly. Opportunities for community collaboration are in the works for a little further down the road.
