Welcome to my world! I hope you will enjoy your stay.
Whenever I get a chance (a few extra minutes to myself) I enjoy spending time with my family; walking in the countryside; reading, reading, reading (mainly non-fiction); surfing the net-- researching what is new 'out there', finding new resources, and learning about computer augmentative devices; and, of course, working on my website.
