Then we welcome you and hope we become regular and good
(If you are just checking back to see what
we are up to, click here
to go to the newest additions.)
The first thing you may
notice is that we seem to be in a constant state of renovation. After 15
months on the web, we have learned a lot (which considering we started
with little knowledge of web magazines - nada). And if you start at the
bottom there is no where to go but up - well we have learned how little
we know and how much more we have to educate ourselves about.
But, knowledge, good sense and prudence
aside; we are extending our enthusiasm and passion into more unchartered
territory and trying to make some changes we think are exciting and that
we hope you will find intriguing and exciting as well.
Funny thing about renovation and
remodeling; you have to live with it and work with it during the
process. So while our bits and bytes and hertz and formatting and
coding go scattering about the Internet, we hope you will forgive our
broken links and dead clicks and inevitable mistakes and be patient.
(If you have any extra patience to share we could sure use some here.)
We'll do our best to keep most of the
pain on our end and hurry the process along. If we could only
squeeze another 10-12 hours out of a 24 hour day that would be really
When we are finished (like that will
ever happen) there should be some more helpful information on this page to
assist you in understanding the logic used to create this site.
(Trust me, some very smart people have been trying to figure out my
logic for a long time and well - it's an ongoing effort.)
We would wait until all the changes are
done but there is so much going on in this area and so much to share, we
just decided to put it out there and beg your patience, forgiveness and
understanding. (In case you hadn't noticed yet, our editorial
process and guidelines are a bit out of the norm.)
For the moment, we hope you will enjoy
and find useful informational on the available pages.
Thanks, Alex Carrier, chief cook and
bottle washer and, oh, editor.
The best way to view our pages is in the
View/Text Size medium. That is the way we design them.
Our formatting is a bit large because 2 of us have visual
problems and many of our readers are Baby Boomers who would
prefer not to have to move the monitor back so they can see
clearly. (You know who you are.)
We know it gets a bit crowded but we have put
links in as many places as possible so you can find what you
As for the ads, we
try to keep them visible but not in-you-face.
We also try to keep them interesting.
Please remember that these are
the people that give us the money to make our pages free to
readers. (Not to mention pay our bills and give us the
freedom to work on this full-time.)
We sincerely ask that you check
out at least one or two ads each time you visit. There
are great products and services to be found in Greene and many
of them can be accessed by the web and you can even order them
on the web and receive them at your home.
Our mission is to promote all
that is wonderful about Greene County and the surrounding area
and the support of our advertisers lets us do that.
Okay, getting off the soapbox
for now. Will let you know what is new as we go on. Alex
