Beginnings (and Middles)  

This is simply a 'hub page' that links to various posts about the beginnings of things, as well as about later years that just keep getting further away. I'm only getting older, so my memory of 1993-2003 and beyond is only going to get dimmer. The more I get down, the less will be lost.

If you missed one of these or are simply curious, feel welcome to take a peek!
