Smartphone-Friendly Site

Although the option of a smartphone-friendly version of this site was available to me years ago, only very recently has it been enabled (i.e., only recently did I acquire a smartphone). The menu choices are somewhat different when viewed on a smartphone but all the content available on the desktop version is accessible. There may be a glitch here and there as regards layout; those will be fixed by and by.
