I must brag. I sub­scribe to Net-Gold, which is a list where select­ed peo­ple find and share the “best” web­sites on the internet.

I was shocked to find my own page fea­tured on it today. 

Yes, I do need to update some links 🙂

There are many per­son­al web pages out there on the inter­net. Some are
excel­lent. Some are very for­get­table. Per­son­al web pages that give
insight into a per­son or fam­i­ly’s trav­els for life and lead to internet
sources per­ti­nent to the hills, moun­tains, val­leys, and fields of this life
expe­ri­ence are mov­ing and valu­able at the same time. “Tech­no-Mom” has
cre­at­ed such an invalu­able website.

The text pro­vid­ed in this charm­ing site con­tains hyper­linked words that
take one to more con­tent about that con­cept or links to sources on the
inter­net that pro­vide resources or infor­ma­tion about the linked concept.

“Yep, I’m The Mom­my. I’m also a stu­dent, singer, home­mak­er, lover,
writer, gamer, activist, stitch­er, and more. I’m a polyamorous Unitarian
Uni­ver­sal­ist eclec­tic pagan fat home­school­ing geeky lib­er­tar­i­an gun-
own­ing Girl Scout leader. None of those labels ful­ly describe me, but
they’re a start. If any of them offend you, leave now. If you don’t want
any, you can’t have any!

Should you choose to stay, this is a pure­ly per­son­al site full of
infor­ma­tion that’s unlike­ly to be ter­ri­bly inter­est­ing to any­one but
those near and dear to me, but hey—that sense of con­sen­su­al voyeurism
is one of the things peo­ple like about the web, right?”

The hyper­linked word singer in the above text leads to:

Mak­ing Music

“Mak­ing Music
I sing as often as pos­si­ble. A voice teacher back in col­lege labeled me
a lyric sopra­no, but my range runs from alto on up. In August 2000 I was
blessed with the oppor­tu­ni­ty to attend a work­shop called No Wrong Notes
led by David Roth at the Omega Insti­tute. It was won­der­ful, and I was
remind­ed of how much joy I get from mak­ing music. I went to Elise Witt’s
Singing for Fun work­shop more recent­ly, and it was an incredible

The hyper­linked phrase Omega Insti­tute leads to:

Omega Insti­tute

[Tech­no-Mom needs to update her link here]

“Omega is the nation’s largest and most trust­ed holis­tic education
provider and is high­ly regard­ed for its pio­neer­ing work in holistic
health, med­i­ta­tion, yoga, trans­for­ma­tion­al psy­chol­o­gy, spirituality,
world music, and art. View our 6‑minute video to learn more about us.

Pir Vilay­at Inay­at Khan, whose vision of a holis­tic edu­ca­tion cen­ter was
the impe­tus to start Omega Insti­tute almost 30 years ago, died June 17,
2004, at his home in Suresnes, just out­side Paris, France, two days
before his 88th birth­day. He was an inter­na­tion­al­ly known meditation
mas­ter, world reli­gion schol­ar, lec­tur­er, author, and head of the Sufi
Order Inter­na­tion­al. For a full obit­u­ary, click here.”


The Mak­ing Music page also states:

“I’m lean­ing more and more to con­tem­po­rary folk music these days, and our
copies of Rise Up Singing are start­ing to look well-loved, to say the
least (yes, as soon as the new vol­ume is out, we’ll own copies of it). I’m
rather annoyed that The Prairie Home Com­pan­ion Folk Song Book is out of
print — if any­one knows of a source, please let me know! My next purchase
of a music book will like­ly be Kate Marks’ Cir­cle of Song, although Songs
for Earth­lings and Libana’s song­book and A Bard’s Book of Pagan Songs :
Sto­ries and Music from the Celtic World are very tempt­ing as well.”

The hyper­linked phrase “con­tem­po­rary folk music” leads to this page.

The Sing Out Pages

Sing Out!‘s mis­sion is to pre­serve and sup­port the cul­tur­al diver­si­ty and
her­itage of all tra­di­tion­al and con­tem­po­rary folk music, and to encourage
mak­ing folk music a part of our every­day lives. We are a tax-exempt,
not-for-prof­it, edu­ca­tion­al organization.

Tech­no-Mom men­tions the Prairie Home Com­pan­ion, but I am going to cheat
here and give you my post of times before to their con­tent, as I chortled
the whole time I com­posed this post. One can go to Tech­no-Mom’s website
to find where the Prairie Home Com­pan­ion link takes one there.

There is plen­ty more con­tent and relat­ed resource links to be found on
this site:

“Brows­ing through this site, you’ll find arti­cles I’ve writ­ten about
var­i­ous issues due to per­son­al expe­ri­ence or con­cern, and some
health-relat­ed mat­ters that I’ve had rea­son to research as well. There
are some geeky bits as well, relat­ed to things I’ve done for mon­ey in the
past. Some of the pieces I’ve writ­ten don’t fit into any of those
cat­e­gories, so they get stuck over here. Unless you were look­ing for my
resume and work-relat­ed writ­ing samples? ”

The Health-Relat­ed Mat­ters page leads to a more seri­ous side of the lives
in this family:

Health-Relat­ed Matters

Men­tal Health
Poly­cys­tic Ovar­i­an Syndrome
Repet­i­tive Strain Injuries

and the hyper­linked word above, “Fibrmy­la­gia” leads to this link:

Vis­it­ing this site will bring some smiles and bring some con­cern and
sor­row, but the one thing this site should not do is, con­trary to the site
own­er’s state­ment, be of lit­tle inter­est. There is some­thing for many
peo­ple on this site.
