In spite of what that hackneyed proverb says, money can buy you happiness—as long as you spend it on others.

The study showed that even minor donations like [...]
I have turned off registration to this site as spam bots are, well, spamming me incessantly with it. If you need an account to be on the surname registry (which is, I believe, the only reason you’d need to register anymore), then please email me directly. Thanks!

We believe a good hard look at how Certificate information is relayed to the public would make a vast difference; perhaps mailing [...]
This letter is not an indictment of any of the owners of the properties mentioned in this letter, or of the Landmarks Commission. Rather, this is an observation by the signers of this letter. It is meant to provoke some thought and discussion, as the people involved might not realize how this whole situation appears [...]

“A Midwestern View: The Artists of the Ste. Genevieve Art Colony,” exhibiting at MAA through May 15, gives viewers an expanded vision of the Midwestern landscape through an intimate look at one of its landmarks. Proving Pixley’s point, it showcases styles along a spectrum from cubism to regionalism, impressionism to abstract expressionism. Although not every [...]
Had the registry break for a bit, but got it working again now. As a consequence all empty entries have been removed. The people who are displayed are those who have added their surnames to their profile and contacted me to be added. One of these days when I can figure it out, I will [...]

I suspect that most bugs will be photos that don’t load, but I’ll get them over here eventually. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, please update [...]
The new site is moving along pretty well and I’m happy to see all those who have been able to log in and update their profiles! If you haven’t done that yet, you can click here and log in with the same details you had at the old site. If you cannot remember your password, [...]
Yes, if you’ve been here recently, the site looks pretty much the same. However, looks are deceiving as it is nothing but the same! For a large host of reasons, I’ve had to change the program that runs the site. Users who have access to the administration panel or post/update information will notice a VERY [...]
