In addition to joining these organizations, I have started to take usability on my website very seriously.  I placed a table of contents and several bookmarks throughout the first page at   I also created a mapped gif (see below) which makes it easy to jump around to the various topic areas of my main page.  And my new look for all my major pages will also include a little table at the top which tells you exactly where you are on my website, and how to quickly get back to the main page.  You see I recently taught classes on web design and development, and it made me think I better start practicing what I was preaching!

Jimmy Driftwood
1907 - 1998

Finally, I wanted to share with you that I wrote my very first obituary ever.   It was for my dear friend, Jimmy Driftwood, who passed away on July 12, 1998.   Jimmy and his wife, Cleda, who were from Timbo, Arkansas, have been like grandparents to me.  I will really miss Jimmy.  He has been one of my biggest inspirations about playing and learning and enjoying music.  You might want to check out the Jimmy Driftwood Memorial Page on this website.   It has gotten a lot of hits since I put it up as soon as I heard the news on July 12.

See you when hits the 700,000 hit count mark.
