Nancy Shoemaker's Home Page
Hi! I'm not sure how you got here, but I'm glad you dropped by.
If you're here because you know that we have a common interest and you're
looking for pointers, I hope I've arranged things so that you can find what
you want. If you're here to find out more about me, there should be a "mosaic"
of facts that will paint a relatively accurate picture. In any event, to ask
a more specific question, please send mail to email@example.com
find me on Facebook
in the more or less maintained personal blog, change.bbvx.org
