    ......Just in case anyone thinks I'm not working much on this
      website... this is to let you know you are wrong! I have undertaken a major links checking exercise (thanks to Xenu Links Checker). In the process, I have discovered many new links (and lost some old ones). All US states and Canadian provinces are now absolutely correct. Please let me know if you find any broken links on these pages. And make sure you hit reload if you go to any of these pages. Now - I'm off to Europe for more links....

    ......I do not usually mention new links on this page, there are
      just too many..... But this one I have to mention! You must check out "How to tell the Flowers from the Birds" - a hilarious trip through a discussion of how to tell birds from plants (like differentiating the Crow from the Crocus, the Cowbird from the Cowslip, the Tern from the Turnip, or the the Ibis from the 'Ibiscus).....

    ......My DEEPEST apologies to all Internet Explorer users!
      While I was in England I had an opportunity to view this site using a different browser (I use and compose in Netscape) and was horrified at the formatting errors I found! I have spent the last few weeks checking every page and correcting formating and fonts so that Internet Explorer can understand the html code! Netscape is far more flexible than that pig of a program! Thank you Bill Gates! Please let me know if I've missed something and a page looks very weird. 

      While I was doing housekeeping, I got a great links checking program. Now I know... this site contains 6,972 links, of which a few hundred are broken! I'm working on it!!! Please let me know if you find any!
