Of course there are places where I have been that are worth pointing out to others. Here is a list of places I liked enough to add to my bookmarks in my browser. If you are looking for the links I use while on the air go directly to the working Links page. If interested in Pi and its uses go to the Pi page or the Pi Links page. Here will be the links for my work with books and then the other links that I find interesting hopefully organized in a way that makes sense!

Last year 2018, I published 6 books on the Internal Arts. I have another group in process that should have been published by now but lightning and the house have taken up my time. I have put a list below on what is coming and you can always go to my site on Amazon for a list of available books.


Available in Amazon E Books and in Paperback

More books on the way! Health, Daoyin, Ligong, Exercise and cooking and best of all the Tai Chi Volumes

For my friends an Holiday greeting and a PDF of my year in review. Clover House 2019 – coming to a theater near you soon!

This one is when your bored and want something to make your mind work. Just figuring out why these things are on the page is a project.

Adding more good Links as soon as I can catch up!
