This Home Page has been on the World Wide Web since 1 January 1995 - Longer than Ebay, Amazon, Google, Wikipedia, DrudgeReport, Craigslist, Facebook, Twitter, & millions of other newbies!
These pages reflect those things that I like or find interesting.
Certain organizations that like me:
- Collectible firearms, especially the Colt Woodsman;
- We have lived all over the world, but there are only a few Places We Have Called Home.
- Politics (Conservative, libertarian);
- Travel and photography are two hobbies that go well together.
I have been to every place that has a pin in the map below, and more.
Most of the travel pages below are live, but several of them are works in progress and not yet linked.

Amazon.com has now made it possible for me to customize my link to them so that visitors from this site can browse my online book store. I designed the store to reflect my interests and the interests of many of my friends and other visitors to this site. Those interests include Colt firearms, other guns, computers, military matters, hunting and fishing, photography, and travel. If you buy from my online bookstore the sale will be handled through Amazon's secure servers and the price to you will be exactly the same as if you went to Amazon.com directly. The difference is, I will receive a small percentage of whatever you spend. Every little bit helps!
