The Webmaster's Desk

Below are some links that have been helpful to preparing this site.

:-) The webmaster says, "This page has become so long that links up and down it have been installed, some material has been moved to subsidiary pages. Enjoy your visit, and happy web page weaving!"


First: GET A WEB PAGE! Check for sources at
The Free Webpage Provider Review
WebHost Director
Web Hosters

Second: Take some tutorials. Learn about good web design.

Third: Learn about color and go "GIF-Grazing", then try out some music.

Fourth: Branch out to using tables and frames.
If you use frames, make a second set of pages WITHOUT frames for the
25% of browsers that don't handle them!

Fifth: Bells and Whistles - JavaScript, counters, guestbooks and imagemaps.

Sixth: Validate, Polish and Promote Your Page!

Blue Mountain Cards make that easy with online cards you can quickly send.:)
Just click on the appropriate occasion you want to celebrate,
select the card you like the most, personalize it
(scroll down and then type in the appropriate information), and send it.
That's it. There's no cost. No snooping. :)
Sadly, some poor misguided netizens have perpetrated an ugly urban legend about
Blue Mountain, which is entirely untrue. Read about it at
their page or on
Current Net Hoaxes & Rumors.

Help Keep Kids Safe!

Microsoft SafeKids The Web site features a free PowerPoint presentation, complete with in-depth lecture notes and a teacher's guide, developed by detectives who specialize in Internet crimes. The powerpoints are HUGE, take up to ten minutes to download by 28.8 modem. But they ARE good, and worth it. Visit the teacher's guide page (there is a link to it on the SafeKids Web site), print it, and read it. You can obtain a free PowerPoint Viewer here. Turn the request to Power Point and click the box for converters and viewers and click UPDATE LIST. Then you can download.
