Sidetrack Menu

=== by Bob Sutherland ===

Most of the content of this website has grown and developed from the assortment of things I collected in my packsacks during my teaching career. This section of my website is different, though, in that it contains off-topic web pages that I created while being distracted and sidetracked by some other stimuli.

As this section of my website grows it is beginning to resemble the variety of files I would discover students and staff had created on the computers in my computer lab at school. They would type essays, opinion papers and other assignments. I was forever encouraging students to combine the photographs they had taken with real or fictional stories they wrote in desktop publishing assignments. I often discovered notices they had created about special events such as births, birthday parties or funerals among their files.
