follow developments in understanding consciousness and Neuro-patch is updated often. And

Help to get around the site -
This starting or home
always contains the date of the last update, a list of what was
updated, a link to my other sites and this help message. All links,
which you click on to go to other pages on the site, are found near
the top of pages in a blue colour (your browser may change any link you
use to another colour for your convenience but it will be consistent
with each type of browser). All pictures
are in a small format and if you click on the picture, it is enlarged.
To return to the page with its small picture click on your browser's
page-back arrow, then the large picture that is covering the page will
disappear. All items that are new in the latest update are marked with
a red message.
site is organized into three main areas: news, views and family. You
can go to any of these from the blue links at the top of each page.
the line of links to these three areas are also links back to this home
page and a link to a page of information about myself.
In the news
area there is a current monthly letter but there are also links at the
top of the page to a collection of previous letters and
photos, to a collection of reports of visits with photos, and to a
gallery of pictures of the construction of our house. Clicking
on one of these three links takes you to a page with further links at
the top of it to take you to specific points, should you not
browse the whole page. In the news area items tend to be organized
In the views
area there are links at the top of the page to collections of items in
the categories: Memories, France, Language, Health, Public Affairs, Other
uncategorized bits and Gallery. The pages in these categories have
enough that they have been split so there are five sets of links, to
older and more recent items. At the top of each of these category pages
is a list of the titles in the form of links to their position down the
page. On the main views area page there are also links to the latest
items in each category so that you can jump directly to them. A
few items in views are pdf
files because they are quite large and are old (written before the
website was built). To see them your computer will have to have a pdf
reader (Adobe reader). Also on the main views page is a quote for that
month and an image.
area has a illustration of the main branches of my family and lists of
items in five categories: a general area and specific areas that look
at the families of each of my four grandparents. This page and
many others have a link to Janet Kwasniak Family
Tree, which is a complete copy of my genealogy program
with all its data. The Ancestors
of X pages
are different from other pages because they lack the heading that
appears on all other pages (the little picture, Janet's Place title and
the 5 top links). Return from these
pages using the page-back arrow on your browser. There is also an item
with pictures and tapes. You will not be able to hear the tapes if
you do not have an mp3
player available on your computer.
A sitemap with a
link at the top of this article has a list of all the pages and links
to all the articles. This may help you if are looking for a specific
thing and don't know where to go. Included on this page is a link to an
archive of quotes. This is the only route to that archive.
