This is a new collection of useful (well to me any ways) references it's a work in progress for sure. Now sure what else might be useful but if you have any ideas or needs let me know by clicking the ABOUT menu, then hit the CONTACT option. Most of these are done up in LARGE EZ to read format. You can view this on your tiny browser on your phone and still see the details (just click the images for the larger view)
