I finally moved all the old WurzelSite™ content to WordPress. You can find the articles in the ARS, EROTICA & CURIOSA sections.

I'd be very grateful if someone could help me create a simple horizontal CSS dropdown menu, so that the featured articles can be accessed directly within the appropriate section.

I only found terribly complicated online tutorials and I seriously doubt that it can be this complicated... so please leave a comment or send me an email if you know how to do this. Thankies.

Anyway, here's a selection of the articles I added - just in case you haven't read them before:

It was a joke but then for me it wasn’t a joke; it was very difficult to physically touch the piece."

"A lot of my books I've intended for children primarily, but nobody would ever publish them as children's books. I don't know many children. And I don't really remember what it was like being a child. I use children a lot because they're so vulnerable. Children are pathetic and quite frequently not terribly likeable. I don't really know any babies. I've never known any babies."

Cabinets de Curiosités

"Learned gentlemen should build a goodly, huge cabinet, wherein whatsoever the hand of man by exquisite art or engine has made rare in stuff, form or motion; whatsoever singularity, chance, and the shuffle of things hath produced; whatsoever Nature has wrought in things that want life and may be kept; shall be sorted and included."
