First Minor Change for 2014

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

(The New Year has brought me back to my original host for Menupause, since his provider is more compatible with WordPress, the program I use for Menupause.)

I decided to put the LINKS list (no longer a separate category) in with MY PICS, a new one added to MY BOOKS, since these are links that I like. I removed those that I felt were outdated or repetitious. I may add to this as needed.
