SITES BY CATEGORY What should be listed? Most of these sites I have visited and would like to share with others. Others have been recommended by friends or from other sources. Time and space prohibites this from being a complete listing even for the immediate Northeast Ohio area. Why should I duplicate other printed and internet sources? I hope you will find these as interesting as I have.
