While I am not a professional web designer, Ii have designed and I am
maintaining a number of websites, including this one. No bells and
whistles, no Java script or Flash software, just a basic down to earth website.

If you would be happy with such a set up, do not hesitate to contact me and
negotiate a mutually satisfactory arrangement.
