What I have learned may be of use to others and of course my motives are not completely altruistic since I have a few conundrums too.

To add your name here, please email me at email@example.com Snail mail address is optional.
Researchers: I could link your name to a page I could create on this website where you could elaborate on your Merriott interests. Let me know if you are interested. You would need to write a paragraph or two for insertion, because I can’t always remember exactly where your connections are! Photos are welcome – if you are going to scan them & send via email, they only need scanning at 75 dpi for websites (something I only just found out).
Thanks to Judy Rogers for being the guinea pig for this idea. Have a look at her extra information here.
