Fall of 2007 - I am finally getting around to updating my website! It has been a long time in coming! As you browse my website, take a look at the date at the bottom of each page. That will tell you whether or not that particular page has been updated recently. If it says somewhere from August or later in 2007, then the page has been updated, even if only to ensure that all links are working. I am removing any links that no longer work, and will replace them with new ones. I am also adding some new photos and updated information!

I'm mom to Alexander, who is 20 (man am I feeling old!), has known it all for many years, and is a Junior in College! You can visit his universe by clicking on the Calvin button. His nickname on the local BBSes we used to frequent was Calvin, because he is a skinny little blond boy who never stops getting into mischief! I'm very proud of my son, as he is very intelligent. I have updated his website (as of October 28th, 2007) and am working to add even more to it. Please visit!

animation showing how to play the logic game called SherlockI have a variety of hobbies and interests, which include computers, reading, crafts, beading, sword fighting, Renaissance Faires, movies and rollerblading. I love to play games of all kinds, including board games, cards, logic puzzles and mind stretching games. Two of my very favorite logic problem games for the computer were created by Everett Kaser. He has about a dozen games that require you to use your brain - check them out! My son and I love Honeycomb Hotel and Descartes Enigma, as well as Sherlock and Moriarty. Here is an animation of Sherlock, the first game I ever played of Everett's.

I also love Kris Pixton's games. I have all of them, though PrismaPix is my favorite. I also love PathPix, MixAPix and PairABox

I also love Jones Soda and Juices. Especially the juice flavors. My two favorites are Bada Bing and Limes With Orange. Try them out!

I love the Sci Fi show Farscape. A good friend of mine turned me onto this show, which unfortunately was cancelled! There are still some great websites for Farscape that you can visit! I hope to build a page myself when I get the time, but meanwhile, check these out. Get hooked on Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan, Ka D'Argo, Aeryn Sun, John Crichton, Dominar Rygel, Moya and Chiana. It's a fantastic cast, and you won't be disappointed. The show may not currently be airing, but there are some Farscape specials in the works!

My nickname is Skye, which I've used so much since the days of local BBSing, that it almost feels like my real name. I originally chose it because of the years I spent skydiving, but it fits me in so many other ways, too. One way is because of my love of parrots, and yet another is because of my Scottish heritage. Ok, I'm far from a fullblooded Scot, but it's the part of my heritage that has always had my fascination! :)
Here's a beautiful song from Scotland, called The Skye Boat song.

The Skye Songs page has another beautiful Scot song on it, as well as the lyrics to The Skye Boat Song!

scared face button I am an avid reader. I can never get enough time to read as many books as I would like. It is a rare day that I don't squeeze in some reading time, however! I often miss sleep to do so! My two favorite authors are Danielle Steel and Stephen King. Quite a strange combination, huh? The scared face takes you to a Stephen King site. To read more about Danielle Steel, click on the book. I also enjoy Patricia Cornwell, Dean Koontz, James Patterson, Iris Johansen, Nicholas Sparks, Michael Crichton, and many more! I live to read! I don't think I could live without reading! book button

On her site you will also see my childhood pals, Chipper and Skippy. pawprint button

Skye's Survey

I no longer have a guestbook on my site. I got tired of them not working, not being able to even log into them without a hassle to view my entries, or having to convert to new coding all the time. Strangely enough, I rarely lost my entries, like many people complain of with their guestbooks. But, it just wasn't worth the hassle. Please fill out my survey, and your "guestbook" entry will come straight into my email box. I always reply to everyone who takes the time to fill it out!
