This page is essentially a thank you to all who initially helped this site to spring to life visually and orally.
Some of those special sites are gone or have transformed their services. A few are still alive and well. So, here's
a thank you, walking down memory lane ...

Many thanks and appreciation to Kevin Swan who previously has a site where he made freely available his
