Val's Galore, on moon and stars Home Narratives Eye Candy Interactives The business end The business end

Three happy celestial objects ready to have some fun! "Let me tell you a story" "Oooh, pretty!" "Wanna Play?"

The Silly Side

Hey, check out what I found! Most of the remnants of my first website!

A screenshot of the first Val's Galore website

A long time ago, in a galaxy not yet bedecked with VG stars and moons, a small page titled "Desktop Art" resided happily on AOL's servers. Before AOL crudely demolished that humble Val's Galore creation, I managed to salvage most of it and duplicate it on my own website. Sadly, my amusing account of how I crippled my computer in an overzealous attempt to rid it of useless operating system files is gone forever. But at least you can enjoy the cute pictures!

Or if you are looking for something a little older and dustier, feel free to let the friendly Star Guys (to the left) be your guide! Just mouse over one of them to see the possibilities! If at any time you get lost, just look to the stars above. They have clearly named links.


Despite the big word that is its name, you might actually find something entertaining in this category! Especially if you like big words. Narrative Land is home to stories, cartoons, and other sundries. If it has a plot, you'll find it here.
