Something monumental happened at our house this week. My daughter (our youngest) submitted
her first college application yesterday. Just one more step to an entirely new life (for both
of us). During the daytime, I’m really brave about the whole empty nest thing. But sometimes at
night, the thoughts creep back into my mind and in my vulnerable, sleepy state, I feel really

his training material for his newest course, Local Email Club Profits. I was thrilled
to see how simple, yet thorough, his materias were. He explains it this way.
Making extra money with your computer requires only two things:
1) A product or service people really want
2) A way to get in touch with those people
And here’s where you can learn about a simple service you can provide in your local area.

#2. Animal Pictures
by Barbara J. Feldman
Animal Pictures Printable (** for premium members only)
Browsing for animal pictures can be a fun mommy-and-me activity for preschoolers, or part of a homework assignment for older students. Today’s collection includes photos from both professional and amateur photographers, but sometimes its very hard to tell them apart.
BetterPhoto.com: Animal Pictures
BetterPhoto.com is an online photography community that offers photo hosting, contests and online photography education. This page is the first of their gigantic animal and wildlife photo gallery. These beautiful, and sometimes funny, photos are a joy to browse. Some are photo-contest winners, and others have been tagged as a favorites by community members. You can see these honors in the icons displayed below each thumbnail. There are no free memberships here, but there is a free newsletter for photography buffs.
Flickr: All Animals
This page is from the Flickr group “All Animals” which has more than 20,000 members and 415,000 photos. A Flickr group is free to join, and includes a discussion board in addition the photo gallery. The group gallery can be explored by tags (such as nature, kitty, or deer) or by the Flickr group search function. To find photos you can use in a school report or on a website, search for “Creative Commons” but be sure to read each copyright carefully, as they are not all the same.
JungleWalk.com: Animal Pictures
With over 10,460 animal pictures, JungleWalk is pretty big. Use the Quick Search function to find a specific species. Or, on the left-hand vertical menu, animals are categorized (dogs, horses, cats, birds, and so on) and available on an alphabetic menu A to Z. Unfortunately, what you see is what you get: these images can not be enlarged. The site exists to sell photo magnets, mousepads, and other gifts for animal lovers, but the large searchable gallery can be enjoyed for its own sake or to send animal e-cards to friends and family.
