Emerald   Idyll

Welcome To The Personal Web Page of   Jack Murphy

This web page will introduce you to me, my family and my interests.  It will include some facts about my
 background, my ethnic heritage and personal interests.  Somewhat late in life I began to investigate my 
Irish background and ancestors and began an interest in genealogy.  I will share some 
of this and introduce the viewer to the fascinating subject of genealogy.  For a few 
years now I have been gathering jokes off the internet.  I plan to present some of them 
for your enjoyment, as well.

     An Acknowledgement.  Normally, being a strong believer in example, I am 
uncomfortable around people who are overly preachy about their religious beliefs, but I would be remiss if I did not  thank our Creator for His grace and inspiration in enabling me to put  together these pages.  Without extensive access to His Heavenly Thesaurus it would not have been possible.  Microsoft's FrontPage 2000 software also helped, but nowhere near as much.
