I have checked all the URLS that were submitted last year. In some cases I have made changes, which I have marked "changed", either because the website itself directed me to a new URL, or because I found the original homepage very difficult to navigate, and after a lot of thrashing around found an easier part of the site. (Those whose browser supports Korean and Japanese won't have any problem with the originals.) I have also added a couple of new sites. (New to this list. Marked "new") Some sites could not be found and I have moved them to the bottom of the list. Unfortunately two were good sources of Nerine pictures. They might be worth checking later. Last week one site was only partially accessible, but this week it is fine, so sometimes troubles are temporary. It is always a good idea to let a person know if you are having trouble with their website. Sometimes the problem is that the owner has contracted for a modest number of visitors, and if that number is exceeded, no one else can get on till the following day. Usually there will be a message explaining that.
