AIM Exercise

I had to try three computers in order to get signed up on AIM. Pop up blockers and "de-blockers" didn't seem to work very well. Finally I tried the graphics computer at PVLD. Now I can get it to work! When I sent a message to PVLD2007 I received a reply that PVLD2007 was signed out.

My daughter used AIM a lot at one point and some of her friends were always on IM. I know a few adults who communicate with distant friends this way too, or even do "business" via im-ing. It can be addictive!

I have used Wikipedia before to learn about a number of topics. It's a lot of fun to explore this online encyclopedia that is user-written. My username is Prairiechick and I edited a sentence or two on PVLD page for grammar. One needs a bit of caution, however, when using Wikipedia. It might be a good idea to research your question from other sources also but that's the case with most research. What a great tool for the surfing public, though!

Southern California Sunset

A walk on a southern California beach at sunset. What better way is there to end the day! If you click on the red "X" it will take you to my flickr foto.

If you are open to your senses, places like Abalone Cove yield up many secrets of the sea, from geology to oceanography to marine biology.
