Of all documents and materials created in the course of business conducted by the United States Federal government, only 1%-3% are so important for legal or historical reasons that they are kept by us forever.
Those valuable records are preserved and are available to you, whether you want to see if they contain clues about your family’s
history, need to prove a veteran’s military service, or are researching an historical topic that interests you. Now Google has made all the videos available at Google’s video site. Any historic video from the national archives is available.

The weather, we talk about, worry about it, but can’t do anything about it. We can at least try to predict it and the following web sites try their best to give you accurate weather info. Try them all to see which ones you like the best. My favorite is weather underground. Of course all your local TV stations have their version of the weather on their sites.

Since we are talking about weather, NASA has some great pictures of our planet showing all type of weather conditions.

I just found a very cool site that lets you build your complete family tree in real time using Flash. The web site is in beta but I found it works very well. It actually makes building your family tree fun. I am not a genealogy guru or make it a hobby so it had to be easy and fun for me to spend any time there. Check it out.

How many of you use ebay? I suppose most of you have at one time or another. Firefox, my favorite browser, has a new plug-in for ebay that gives you the following options:
Search ebay from anywhere.
Access your account very easy.
Get ending auctions quickly
See image previews of all auction items
Blocks all ebay banner ads and animations
Find all about this plug-in here —

If you are around the age of this Senior geek, you will find the following video on Youtube by Tom Rush very humorous and all too true sometimes.

“Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart.
