Tulsa TV Memories can serve as your own personal time
Here is a rundown of its features:
GroupBlog is the
heart of the site. From its start as the Guestbook
in 1998, it has functioned as a "reverse blog": readers make the entries,
the webmaster adds comments, links and pictures. You are invited to write
as many times as you wish. Webmaster comments about posting in
Pictures, sound files, audio and video tapes and DVDs
are also welcome via email or regular mail. These
contributions and selected GroupBlog entries are incorporated into existing

This is an exploratory site. Start anywhere. It is cross-linked to help you
follow your interests, wherever they may lead.

old for you, as it has for me.
