Selected Links Page

This is a selection of links from my blog.  It is not all the links in my blog, it is those links which seemed to be of special interest.  I am not including all the links in my blogroll on the front page of my blog.  I have to have mentioned these in the posts on my blog.  It also is a reflection of my personal interests and investigations.  The organization is of course my own, it is a bit enigmatic like myself.
