The Internet/

I did not realise until today just how good The Net is.  I have reffered to it twice today for information about things, and, have been very impressed.  I started a new book last night and did not know about a place that was mentioned, and is going to be very relevent to the story.  I looked it up this morning and I got all the information I needed, the place was Masada.
Later today I was thinking of my favourite poem, one that my Mum taught me when I was at school . I learned  to recite it for the teacher once, as were given free choice.  I had forgotten a lot of it and it is not that well known.  All I keyed in today was the title of the poem, and three seconds later up it came.,I just could not believe it.  I don't think there is very much at all the you cannot get help with on The Net. Maybe its because I am older that I am so impressed by this technology, I cannot but marvel at it.  Well thats about it for me for tonight, will go and read my poem, as I have printed it off. Midsomer tonight great.  Have a good evening,
                                                         Love

Yes, the web is marvellous.  I found the information I needed for my nine eleven posting on there and I have looked up hundreds of other things.  It is the best source of information and more than makes up for the bad things.

I've always found it amazing that you can type in a couple of words and come up with thousands of entries on it! Technology is wonderful when it's used properly! Jeannette xx

Thankyou for your comment yesterday on my rhyme for Jeannette.Yes it is so isn't it about the Net.I too found a poem my mother used to stand and say when we had family gatherings.I found it on here and I have just learned it off by heart it is a very long one but I have managed it after 3 long weeks.Take a peek sometime I think you might enjoy it  if you havnt already heard it. "The Face on the barroom floor".Make sure you put the double r in barroom.I think my mother would have been thrilled I have learned it as now I can recite to all the family.Glad you found your poem your mum taught you.Take Care.

What poem was it Joan? I'm nosey lol. Two and half years ago I discovered computors and got my first one. Made me wonder how I'd managed without technology for so long, especially the first time I signed on the net. It brought a whole new world to me and JLand brought lots of friends, lovely people like you. Take care.
Love Sylvia xx

Totally agree Joan...Allan and I were only saying the same thing this evening!
It also makes the World a much smaller place. I'd just written an email to my Penfriend in Memory of 9/11, as I do each year. and within minutes, she had replied. I was also asking about a place we visited when we stayed with her in Minnesota..and she sent me a Map.
