Welcome to my web site!

This site is under construction (probably always will be) and was last updated on 28/11/13.



This site was initially designed to provide access to a number of items of interest (e.g., the Kwasnicia Klan Cookbook) to members of our extended family that might better be maintained for the future in electronic form rather than on paper. However, it suddenly became evident that it might provide an opportunity to post a number of other items that hide away on my hard drive and that may (or may not) be of interest to others. So here is what you will find:
