This week's review: http://www.50states.com
Most of my readers- if not moms- are parents. This site is a must have for all parents- period. Your children may be all grown up with children of
THEIR own. You still need this site. Here’s a little scenario for you. You’ are tucked your sweet 4th grader in on Sunday evening. You’re tiptoeing out of her room when suddenly she sits up in bed and says, “Mom! I forgot to do
my homework!” You calmly say, “Oh? A few math problems?” She says, “No-I have to know the population of Idaho AND their state flower.” Of course, as a (fill in your home state here), you would run shrieking from the room to try and find a 24-hour library right? Not anymore folks! Here’s the scoop.
We’ll start with how you would get an A on your (umm, your child’s) project. Log onto the 50states.com website and select Idaho. Scroll down the alphabetical listing of available resources to Flower (Syringa) then continue down to Population (1,293,953) and you are all set.
Maybe you’ve moved out of Florida and miss your morning newspaper. Or you want to search the Classified Ads for vacation property in Miami. You will find an extensive list of newspaper website links for each state. There are
also links for Commonwealths and Territories. What a valuable resource for anyone.
There are also a variety of links at the bottom of the main page. Some are: Biographies by State, Current Events, Community Pages, even State Tax Forms. One of the best features of this site is how easy it is to use. Those new to the Internet can find their way around. Be sure to tell your “surfing” Grandparents. Don’t forget to collect your “consulting” fees from your
little darling for the report. Until next time.
