Links

Introduction

Here you will find a collection of links to sites scattered all over the Internet, on many different topics. The links are grouped by topic. The topics discussed include children, psychology, computers, astronomy, math, science, arts and music, government and criminology, humor and spoofs, and others. It's really quite an eclectic links collection.

To open a link in the same browser window as the links page, left click the link. Then click your browser's "Back" button to return here.

To open a link in a separate window, right-click the link and select "open in new window". Then close that window to return here.

I tend my links garden from time to time, weeding out dead links and adding new ones, so check in often to see what's new.

Have a good journey on the open ocean of The Internet!
