BNAPS Stamp Collecting for Kids  "Members of the British North America Philatelic Society have developed this web-site for young people. Depending on the age of the young people using this site, we encourage supervision. While we encourage stamp collecting as a family hobby, we also recommend letting young people feel free to make certain decisions about their hobby - so it becomes their "thing"."

Search Stamps  A commercial page for stamp collectors and dealers.  Sections include:
Articles; Associations; Auctions; Auction Search; Books; Classified Ads; Clubs; Collector Sites; Dealers; Topical; US Stamps; World Stamps; Price Guides; Publications; Reference Resources; Services; Software; Stamp Supplies; Top Sites.  Note that each of these links may open a new browser window (Netscape Communicator 4.76).  Includes links to stamp news and auction links to three well-know auction sites - with the ability to search all three at once (only for stamp-related searches).  The ads are there but not jumping and flashing.

Ventriloquism sites  This site is under development and projects to have the top 100 ventriloquism sites listed.  Currently (9-17-01) there are 37 sites listed.  There are a lot of ads, some for ventriloquism - some for magic, and they are dominant.  Budding ventriloquists may find some help.
