Update 2018-06-21 Hi Folks- Finally an update to the tool list tonight.. I appreciate your patience with me.. my day job has been extra-busy lately and I am spending every evening at the ball field coaching my daughters all-star softball team. That does not leave much time for tools, unfortunately. I am doing my best to keep the list up-to-date and add new items as time allows. Thanks for looking! I appreciate it.

Tools are organized into the following categories:
