Everything Links

“With intellectual curiosity the world will always be full of magic and wonder.”

— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

I think the universe is fascinating and I like to explore it–while sitting in my comfortable chair at home, with my dog, Hannah Joy, on my lap, sipping hot coffee or iced tea. These are links to many things that I find interesting. I will add to this page when I find more things to explore. Feel free to send me wholesome, interesting links you find. I will check them out and add them.
