How to use this set of pages:
The Buttons to the left mostly say it all, but...
if you cannot find something you wish to read or use, try the
"Odds and Ends" page.
If that does not work, send me a note and I will try and find Resources for you.
There were not a lot of local resources found on the old Dakota Site, so I will be looking for new 'goodies'
