Dear Barbara,

My son has a date with Irene tonight. Unfortunately, we’d never allow him to bring a girl like a Irene home. I mean, we’d never want someone like her in our house. Who would?

You see, Irene is an asteroid, and Matthew is charting her orbit. He’s away for the summer, studying celestial mechanics for six weeks at Summer Science Program. When he’s done, he’ll know a few things about Irene, and whether he wants to study astrophysics in college. Pretty cool, huh?

For links to more details about the summer program and Irene herself, hop on over to my blog:

See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

The world’s first national park, Yellowstone National Park, was established on March 1, 1872 by President Ulysses Grant. Forty-four years later, on August 25, 1916, the National Park Service was established by Congress. Today there are fifty-eight National Parks in the United States and its territories. How many have you visited?

GORP: US National Parks
http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/main.htm
*****
To access any of GORP’s encyclopedic resources, you’ll need to register and be at least thirteen-years old. But it’s free and worth the effort. Park info is organized by region, as well as activity and feature such as “Top Ten Biking Parks” or “Top Ten Wildlife Viewing Parks.” Don’t overlook the photo galleries, slide shows, screensavers, downloadable travel catalogs, or the rest of the National Park Top Ten lists.

L.L. Bean Park Search: United States
http://www.llbean.com/parksearch/us_search.html
*****
Whether you’re looking to canoe in California or picnic in Pennsylvania, L.L. Bean Park Search will help you choose the perfect National Park. With simple check boxes , you can select any combination of geographic region, state, sport, or service (such as nearby lodging or children’s activities.) To expand your search internationally, click over to the main Park Search page listed in the left-hand menu.

National Park Service
http://www.nps.gov/
*****
The official National Park Service is my pick of the week because of the variety of its resources. Highlights include a park directory (from Abraham Lincoln Birthplace to Zion National Park), a listing of all the National Park kids and game pages (look for GoZone in Interpretation and Education), the huge Nature & Science section, and Links to the Past (in History & Culture.) Don’t miss the Civil War special section, or the multimedia slide shows featured on the front page. The slide shows are huge (5 MB), but there are “dial-up versions” if you run out of patience.

Dear Barbara,
This weeks issue has really helped me a lot! What you told me about the kittens was very interesting. We were doing a project and I decided to do it on kittens and cats about how they behave and it worked to extreme measures!! I got a 98%. It was wonderful!!
Thank you,

Dear Steven,
I’m glad my website helped with your project. Congrats on the excellent grade!
Barbara
