My interests are varied but, currently, they include learning HTML and developing this web page. The layout and content of this site will be changing constantly as my knowledge of HTML increases. For now I will be adding links to food related sites and to documents and tools for creating HTML. My creativity will only be limited by disc space.

I welcome any and all comments relating to the development of this page.

Please report "dead end links".

Just tonight, Nov. 10, `97, I learned of the death of Gary Holleman. A memorial page has been set up by his friends. If you knew Gary or he touched your life in some way please add your thoughts to this page. I, as well as many who left condolences, have never met Gary in person. He was the original "CyberChef". I remember asking him Internet questions early in my exploration of this medium and his patient and helpful replies.
The Culinary as well as Cyber world will miss this pioneer.
