I’m restructuring the site.. which I’m hoping will simply make it a place to house our family tree and family gallery, to that effect, I’ve purchased a domain name for the family tree webpage. http://raymerfamilytree.info will now resolve to the page, the previous one will work but give you google map api errors.
Whats all this then?
You may notice emails arriving in your inbox telling you that you have been tagged, this isn’t spam, it’s a notification from the Gallery3 system we have installed at http://gallery.raymerfamilies.com, as I or other volunteers go thru and tag faces and make accounts, you may recieve dozens of these messages a day […]

If you want to start recycling your going to have to consider whats involved, if your going to drop off your recycling, you may be able to sort it when you get there.. even if you have quite a bit of it to sort through.
How to Get Started
First lets tackle the Why you need […]
Possibly my whole adult life I’ve been at least wanting to recycle.. trying to find ways to do it.. occasionally making efforts, usually falling behind on promises I’d made to myself to keep recycling..
Due in large part to my soon to be wifey.. I’ve been able to succeed in Recycling.
