Welcome to My Site!
Greetings and welcome.
My name is
Jerry K. Brooke, and I approved this
message! Sorry about that, I'm not running for office of any kind, I just can't
help myself. Ok, here goes!
It all started as a hobby! But grew into a
real passion. I find the process both relaxing and rewarding. I have created
many web sites that never got published. After a few years of practice, I feel
comfortable publishing sites for others. I never had the time to create one for
My web designs had very humble beginnings. As a former IT
Specialist, and also a former communications specialist in the military, I
found it very easy to adapt these previous talents and my love of computers to
a new hobby. After retirement, and with a little more time on my hands I
purchased HoTMetaL Pro, installed the CD on my computer and began with
the instructors guide, beginning with page one of chapter one, I taught myself

shed hair all over my laptop. I put him down on the floor and told him we would
share some "Teigertime" later. It sounded good then, and I have used it ever
since. I changed the spelling later purely by accident and now we have
I have several sites to maintain and a couple more in
the development stage. I work with my clients one on one, and provide some
suggestions along the way.
Who knows what the future holds, but I am
hopeful for many more published sites, and satisfied customers.
don't hesitate to contact my clients and get their opinion of my work. I'm sure
they would be pleased to share their thoughts with you.
I have chosen
this decor as it is one of my favorites; clear concise and orderly. Also, the
deck gray color and rivet pattern reminds me of my time aboard the USS Charles
Berry DE-1035. It kindles many memories of my Navy days. Actually, I did the
web site for the Charles Berry too, but then thats another story for another
