"Winnie the Pooh": Online Educational Fun for ChildrenWritten by Jesse S. Somer
Continued from page 1
Your kids can enjoy Pooh based on-line video games, as well as downloading coloring-in pages, mazes, and color wallpaper posters. You can also download a fun empty family tree that child can then research to fill in. As site is highly professional and under constant updates in construction, it says that soon there will be Pooh alphabetical flash cards and even an 'Enchanted call from Pooh and Tigger", although this sounds like a pure money/honey making exercise. Speaking of money please be careful as this site has lots of different products and merchandise your kids are bound to obsess over. If I were you, just try and choose stories and videos that seem to have genuine educational value. However, there are a few nice freebies that you can download from 'Characters' link, such as a Tigger mask and a valentine card for Eeyore donkey as well as more fun activities. Whether you want to show your young children an interesting and fun time on computer/Internet, or you are planning to build a children's website of your own, this site is an excellent choice.

A new definition of "Buyer Beware"Written by Jesse S. Somer
Continued from page 1
Her look of disbelief was starting to rattle me. It is a really horrible feeling when somebody you love so much doesn't have trust in you. I then searched and found receipt from eBay for when I bought phone. After showing date on form to her I could tell she was starting to see that I was telling truth, but wall of disbelief still hung over, clouds covering her bright face. Finally I decided to search for guy who sold me phone. If this didn't prove my case nothing would save me from eternally sleeping in doghouse. Using email address he had used in sale proved fruitless as my message kept coming back 'Return to sender.' Let me tell you I was really beginning to panic! Then, bang! The sound of gun rang in my ears...just joking. It didn't get that serious! No, bang was sound of flash of inspiration that suddenly entered my mind. I went back on Internet and eBay and searched for guy's name. I found it with a different email address, as he must have changed his Internet Service provider. A huge feeling of calmness rushed over me like first wave at beach when you have been in heat all day. Next I sent him a message asking him about archived messages to 'Suzie' and asked him to 'Carbon Copy' (Cc) his response to my wife's email address so she would see that it was authentic. The man then replied with a message that said he was very embarrassed about not deleting messages on cell phone. All right, pay dirt! He also went on to say that his wife was named Suzie and gave her address so Kat could then contact her if necessary. He seemed especially nervous about content of messages and said that he hoped nothing too x-rated was there as he and his wife often used risqué language to keep their relationship's fire 'stoked up! O.K. So there's my story. My main message to you from whole experience is that if you are buying or selling a product on eBay, make sure you clean up any unwanted information. It can really cause problems! Let me also tell you that now I am back searching on eBay as my new phone has also been sent on a mission back to creator as it too has been on 'Quest for spin cycle'!
