Why no ads?
I don't like websites stuffed with ads, and I figure you don't either. It's ungracious to make visitors hunt for info buried amid commercials.
If you'd like to support me (thank you!), obtain my books, watch my videos, and follow links to the few vendors I'm affiliated with. Want to use my text or photos? All I ask is attribution: Imbed the excerpt with a link to the page it came from.
Mainly, do learn from and enjoy my site. It's my pleasure to share its wealth with you. -- Debra Lee Baldwin
