Dear Readers,


Welcome back. Today I want to thank all my readers — both new
and old — for writing me with your encouraging words and
referring your friends and colleagues to my site and this

an email

topped 43,000 readers. And hold on — we’re going for 100,000!

If you have a product, service or site that would interest my other
42,999 newsletter readers or my 200,000 Web site visitors, Surfnetkids
has second quarter advertsing space available. Details here.

And remember, without YOUR site reviews, there is no Wednesday
newsletter. So keep those Reader Reviews
coming

used
on the underground railroad in the area where I grew up. I searched
the name and found this site. I thought it had some good pictures

“The first module of ONR’s Science and Technology Focus Site,
an
educational resource for students and teachers, spotlights
Oceanography. The site explores all areas of the ocean, from the
beaches and mangroves to the depths of the ocean basins and trenches.
Colorful, interactive graphics teach about the processes that keep the
ocean in motion. Quick quizzes and experiments test the viewers’
knowledge,
and ONR’s CyberScientist is on call to answer any questions. USA Today
declared the site a ‘Hot Site’ on Jan. 13, 2000.”
