A long, eventful summer is over. Lots of changes at our house, many not so happy, have provided opportunities to re-prioritize and re-focus.

UPDATE: I believe we have gotten all the links active again. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if something isn’t working as it should.

Arrghh…looks like OneDrive has changed all the links on the download content from this website.

My most shocked and contrite apologies that I did not notice sooner.

Please bear with me for a few days while I straighten this file host created confusion.
