Note: This is here I relocate my blog archives so my blog does not get to full. However, Many of the sites and links are do expired over time, and will not load, also the videos that were removed were not transfered via link to the archives, so embed coding is transfered to the archives I will eventually add a specific area for video archives but for now the coding and or just links will remain archived, with the test, as my current archives does not allow the display of such.
