Be courteous to all, but intimate with few and let those few be
well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship
is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the
shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.

--George Washington

Note (May 2009): We cannot keep updating pages and Web sites that keep disappearing. And we certainly cannot match Google and the new technologies, which have made independent references obsolete. No one visit them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Note (December 2012): This page has been removed. The sites either did not exist any longer or did not have a link to Swans any more. It also was viewed only 5 times over the past 12 months. Not worth maintaining... Thank you to those of you who have one day or the other put a link to Swans on your site.
