What's New at Rosegate Harbour


     Please remember all my files and material are for personal use only. Do not copy / share / post elsewhere. It's not only disrespectful, it's also illegal, so I'm sure you want to avoid that. :) Thanks!


APRIL 30, 2020
         - Added 101 Positive Quotes to Get You Through Quarantine, and linked to "COVID-19: Messages of Faith" on the coronavirus page.

APRIL 16, 2020
         - Changed some wording on the About RC page for those who prefer to use digital methods rather than printing.
         - Added a new page, Staying Calm and Happy Through COVID-19. It's later than I'd meant, but hopefully something there can still be useful to someone. It's got suggestions for reducing stress and anxiety, cheering up, and finding positive and fun ways to fill your time. I hope you're all healthy and enduring well!

DECEMBER 9, 2019
         - Some of the lists, including the printable / PDF lists have been updated. There have been a few corrections to titles, authors, categories (like adding "American Historical Documents" and "The Common Sense of the Exact Sciences" to more categories), typos, formatting, etc.
   (I did upload some with a few changes in the spring without adding it to this page. Oops, usually I make a note of those!)
         - If you re-download newer versions of my files you've previously saved, you may notice the file names have been changed a bit. That was to be more in accord with current Internet practices (caps can cause problems), and to possibly be more descriptive. For example, "authorPrint.pdf" is now "rc-author.pdf" and "RCHchron.pdf" is now "rc-henty-chron.pdf".
         - Added a PDF version of the printable RC booklist without lines.
         - Fixed link to the full-size cover of Myths Every Child Should Know on the Printable Books and Covers page. (I had it linked to half-size before!)
         - Fixed broken links on multiple pages. Some have been replaced with something new, because the old sites no longer existed. (Fixing broken links is never ending, and I've still got work to do on that.)
         - Fixed the "What made you decide to homeschool?" link on the About Homeschooling page because it was redirecting to the wrong page on their newer site.
         - Added links to the RC Facebook page and blog on the About RC page and the Links page.
         - Added notes about "Don Quixote" and "The Ultimate Resource 2" on the Tips page.
         - On the Latter-day Saints & RC page: Added links to the entire "Faith-Promoting Series," switched to different substitute books about the Reformation, added another philosophy substitute, and fixed some broken article links.
         - Fixed some coding so site should display better in certain browsers. (Improvements for mobile are still on my to-do list.)
