Resources for your further research and knowledge.
You will find on this page a collection of great resources for you to further research and develop your knowledge. I will list here websites that I have found interesting and that I think could be of interest to you.
There is so much good information to be found on the web but it takes a lot of sifting through to separate the ‘wheat from the chaff’. I hope to eliminate some of the ‘pain’ of searching for you.
I would love to hear from you if you can add some further resources that you have found helpful.
I will add to this list as I come across more information.
