I have not gone to the trouble of adding code that would indicate that the site is a secure one, although it is, because I am not selling anything at this site. That said, I take no responsibility for any issues you may experience at sites to which I have linked and, obviously, have no control over.
03 August 2019 - For the next couple of weeks, a complete database upgrade will be occurring to make the site more compatable for mobile devices. Be patient with me, because this is a one-man-show and it will take awhile.
