Although it may not seem much different the WAVES National Guestbook has been completely rebuilt (after many, many hours of converting the old book).   We were having trouble with "junk" entries with bad links that had nothing to do with the ideas behind the web site so we went to this new guestbook.  New guestbook entries will not appear immediately but should be added within 24hrs.

 [There still may be some maintenance issues to address with the new guestbook but we have completed the major work].
