For a number of years I have put up at this address a pictorial homepage, a page with homepage information, plus interesting and amusing pictures from the year gone by. I am continuing to do that but, to take advantage of Google's superior picture publication facility, I have now transferred operations to blogspot.
So if you now go here you will find all the pages of the past and present concerned. From each page you will find links which enable you to step back to previous pages. Each page has links leading to the previous year and you can also use the blogspot archive links at the bottom right of each page to go to particular years.
For convenience's sake, however, I have also posted as under backup copies of each year's page
My historic homepage (with pix), My academic homepage, My Home page supplement, My occasional memoirs, My shorter writings, My longer writings and a Consolidated list of links to all my writings
