Thanks for visiting my site!

Folks, I have terrible news about my website. There was a major server crash, and the entire database was lost -- including my mailing list I've collected over 9 years. There was no surviving backup. It is a disaster and a travesty...

So, I have moved my website to a new server (and company). I still have to reconstuct parts of the website; this is a copy I made a while back.

A good thing that will come out of this is, the website will be much better than it was -- in content, and presentation. The old one was one of my first web design efforts, and it kind of got locked as it was on the other server. The new design will offer more content -- including a proper video page! -- and it will be easier to find and navigate.

I'm super busy right now, still recuperating from two changes of residence (after 10 years!), booking Biddy's, playing in 9(!) bands, and teaching lessons. I hope to get to it soon.
