Note: Some so-called "transitionals" are actually handmades, as noted in the first link below:

How Do I Tell The Difference? Transitionals

The following links have not been double-checked for content or even to see if they are still there. Neither have the links in the other categories above. I'm just starting to think about revamping this page. I've been inspired by the simple yet informational transitional thread link I just posted. I've learned a lot since I first made these links. More threads have been posted. And to some extent what is considered "common knowledge" has changed. Any thread recommendations will be welcome. Thanks.
