The New TheWarfields.com History
This current site stemmed from a desire to get away from the canned Front Page look of the old "theWarfields.com" and learn how to do HTML the way the pros handle it. Accordingly, I developed the look and feel myself, and have used Dreamweaver 3 to implement it. The redesign was initiated in March, 2001.
I have tremendously enjoyed creating this vanity site, and hope you'll be as amused exploring it. I've even picked up the odd award in recognition of what's to be found here.
It all gets done right here!
