Useful Articles

Like I said in my “About” section, I’m not going to try to give anyone tips about anything.  However, I enjoy receiving tips from other folks via books and interesting articles I come across.  You can see from the photo above that I’ve amassed quite a collection.  Believe it or not, I’ve even read most of the books in that ridiculous pile.

As for articles, I might as well compile them here, where others can peruse them, too.  As the list lengthens, I’ll probably re-organize them by general topic category.
