About the Web Site

The web site is written in WordPress.  E-mail addresses are obfuscated (encrypted) by Cloudflare so that although they look normal to a human viewer, they are encrypted so cannot be harvested using “spam bots” to send spam e-mails.  Cloudflare is also used to enhance overall site security.

If you have any questions about the site, please contact the webmaster.
