Links, Ads and Affiliation Disclosure

This site is my personal site. It accepts advertising and other forms of compensation. Such compensation does NOT influence the information contained on this site. We always give our honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences as we really do believe that honesty is the best policy for all.

We work hard to ensure that the information contained on our web pages is accurate, relevant and of the high quality that our visitors have come to expect.

I only accept sponsorships from providers of high-quality goods or services. I appreciate their recognition and support of this site.

I sometimes recommend products or services on the pages of this site. Although I have not purchased and tried every product or service I recommend, I do only recommend products from those sites that I consider to be quality websites. That said, you should know that if you purchase a product recommended on this site, I probably make a small commission on that purchase. It helps keep this site going and is a standard practice on most websites you will visit.

But do believe me – promoting junk would not only hurt you, it would hurt me too, as it would eventually bring down the reputation of this site I have taken so much time to lovingly build over the years. I have no intention of doing that and I respect my visitors. So the recommendations I make are for goods and services that I honestly believe are of value.

I appreciate your support of my sponsors and recommendations. This site takes time and effort to deliver original content, free, to you. Supporting my sponsors is a WIN-WIN-WIN for you, me, and them. Thank you very much.
