So here I am, full of hopes and ideas. Inspired constantly by the “pay it forward” notion, and ready to add my piece to virtual history.

There is a wealth of information on these topics, if you are willing to search them out. I am merely making a shortcut for anyone wishing to find them quicker!

So here goes… wish me luck!
