The Site may appear to have little to no activity, but I promise behind the scenes I have been working hard to upgrade the database that drives the Collections found on this website. Previously, I was using a database that was linked into the website. This allowed me quite a bit of design flexibility but there were may weak links to this method. one of these weak links was the ability to break the database table out of the iframe it was in, exposing the database to login issues.

I have been reading a blog from one of our cousins now for quite a while and realized only lately that perhaps I should be sharing this enjoyment with others.

There is a great deal of Caperton 'life' in the pages of her blog and I encourage you to have a look at them. You can even sign up and receive the blog in you email as it is updated.
