If you cannot find what you are looking for on my page, you can search the internet:


The links on this page were last verified on 2/2/06 with bad links either being updated by searching for the site or removed if they could not be found. In any case where I think the site was superb and/or could find an archived version, I will note that it is gone but link to an archived version. A ton of these sites have vanished so I put up archived versions. Where are all the turtle pages going? If your site was wrongly removed because I could not find where it had gone, please e-mail me. Also contact me if you want me to add a new turtle link.
