30 October 2016 - Starting Update of Site

Sorry for the long delay on making updates and adding information to the Web Site - Delay was caused by a partial computer failure at the Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP. The long delay was compounded by the change by major software companies like Adobe going from selling software to renting it. Over the years bought all of my software on CD directly from the company that developed the software, they want me to buy it yet again. Finially just decided to fix the old computer and use the old software.

Smart Phones- Sorry this site is not designed for viewing on smart phones.

Broken Links- As with any thing that is not maintained for 2 years, if you find a link to a picture or information that you need that does not work, please e-mail me, I'll fix the link or try and e-mail you the information.

Restoration Tools and Tricks
