    I am searching for color charts that show a color splotch and/or describe the flowery, coded names of colors in term I understand, like "red" and "blue". In my search I've run across the following links, which may prove useful one fine day:

    I do believe I've just had a brilliant idea Jon.Now all I need is time to do it.

    What I'm blathering about is doing a links page for the NARA site and starting it with the colour links you have just posted. Whatcha think of that idear?.

    I'd also like to expand the How-To pages but I'm always short of time.Do ya s'pose if I asked nicely these good people would gather up their how tos with pictures and email them to me for inclusion on the site?

    I'm sure I can think of some way that you can :D Thanks for offering Jon.

    Jon,I thought of something you could do (told I could).Got any neat little projects going or already done that you have pictures of? Write up some text to match the pictures package it all up and email it to me at This addy .If it's ready to up load I can get it online faster.You will of course get full credit for it.

    This goes for anyone else who wants to contribute to the NARA site.
