Lassie Online

I never intended to keep many links on this site, as they become outdated quickly. However, Sharon Turner, a regular correspondent on the mailing list, has found so many intriguing websites I wanted to include them. Since I don't have time to "patrol" what's linked here, if you see an outdated link, please pass me an e-mail so I can delete or revise it. Thanks in advance! And many, many thanks to Sharon.
