Don and Jonathan:

I would like to help out the website as well.  Since I am only now learning 
how to program, I don't think that I can contribute too much in the way of 
code.  But, I feel that I could contribute quite a bit to the website and 
it's development.  Any help that is needed, I would gratefully give.

In His Service:

P.S. I have one or two ideas on paper that I could scan and email to those 
who would like to see them.  They deal mostly with icons and navigation.
