New to the net?
Here is the distilled wisdom of Otto's editor as she struggled through the problems of software and the internet. Fast, breezy, printable for your future reference. Save yourself swears and tears with this advice.

For young people to lose a friend is about the hardest blow of all in adolescence. Even the adults who knew Audie Pitre (of the band Acid Bath) are grieving the loss to this day. Read about the impact one musician had on his world. Audie and his parents were killed by a drunk driver.
My other grief pages are on my personal website, but I plan to move them to OPINE.   You can read them on my personal site for now.

Otto's Little Secret
It seems someone has noticed that our mascot, Otto, is not a peacock. Surprise! Otto is a crested crane. We won't tell Otto, though, for his feelings would be all higgledy-piggledy, so read the story here.

Free Graphics
I guess I've only changed this page three times in seven years.....   But who knows?  I might change them again any day now!  I have thousands upon thousands of photos to share. Stop by the free graphics page

Music Pages
Music has its own magazine, www.tell-mama.com  
This e-zine is now huge but very outdated.

Nostalgia now has its own e-zine too, with the pages about life in small towns.

Our Tentative Times (Otto) is now divided into four magazines. This one is OPINE. Give us a bit of time to find a graphic that says all that without words!  You are still under the umbrella of Our Tentative Times

Page entirely the fault of Sandra Weinhardt. Contact her at editor@tentativetimes.net but be gentle because she hardly ever gets to sleep and she needs encouragement.
