Hi, I'm Frank, a 50-Plus-year-old (Yipes!) sometimes
computer and internet enthusiast from Alabama, US-of-A!


Personal interests include ....
Viewing art -- mainly paintings, drawings, photographs and
ceramics; golf; baseball; reading; computers; internet; cats;
road maps and road travel; architecture (mainly Spanish,
Tuscan and Mediterranean homes); occasional dining out.

This is, and has been for over 15 years, my only web-site.
Nothing fancy here, not too much original stuff to show, but
I am making progress. Thanx-A-Lot and Enjoy.
