Sorry--the rest of the pages are more interesting and attractive than this one; this is just a table of contents so you can see what's on which page.

In the loge lobby at the Orpheum Theatre, 7 July 1999

This page is under construction, as are the "Real US" pages, which became so full that they necessitated an index of their own, which this is.

Please send comments to me at or, better yet, sign my guestbook (when I get it linked)

This page and other "Real US" pages are created, maintained, and hosted by
the fabulous
