Please read this important note:

10/31 .  . . Trick or Treat? After MANY months of work (frequently until 3-4 AM this past month) my new website will debut 11/1. It remains a work in progress with many items remaining to be loaded (mostly in Red Mallee) and some things that remain to be fixed or finished to make it the website I've long envisioned. But the important thing is the new shipment is posted. The site is still, but the domain name is (just drop the 's'). Let me know what you think. Like, I said, much left to be done, but the short term pain will be well worth the long-term gain in funtionality and ease of updating.
