I sometimes add links to blogs but realised it would also be useful to have them, plus others, on a single page. They will be added to when I get a round tuit (as they say) and no doubt some may fall off over time. Most will have links to other sites. Haven’t yet checked all the links work. (Oh the shame of amateurism versus enthusiasm).
There are thousands of sites and here but a sample……… links may not be current….. checking will happen, haphazardly………..
