*Government*

Planes & Flag
A quick note:
In the only country in the history of our planet that was started for the express reason of freedom we have the unalienable right to not only vote for representatives but the right and duty to watch over them. This is why this section is so important. We must become and remain "Politically Active". No matter what your view or philosophy, make your voice heard. Welcome to America and remember "We are the people"!

One problem with becoming "Politically Active" is you have a hard time tracking down the information you need to make an informed decision. Even little things like your Senator's or Representative's Address to write them a letter. Just getting started is tough. I had to pull out my Voter's Registration Card, look up what districts I am in to track down and find out WHO my representatives are.

Well, I'm going to try to make things a little easier for anyone interested in contacting their State or US representatives. Here you will find links to Tons-o-Info. On the Florida web site there is even a map to help you locate your voting district. At the US House of Representative's web site just enter your zip code and it will search out your district. Of course, if you have your Voter's Registration Card handy it will make things that much easier.

You will want to watch this page as I will be adding other governmental agencies and more information as I discover it. If you know a good site with good information, please drop me a line (e-mail address at the bottom) and I'll share it here on the page.

The United States Legislature

The US Senate's home page. Find your Senator if you're not in Florida. If you are in Florida then the home pages for your Senators are:
US Senator Connie Mack (R) and US Senator Bob Graham (D) .

The home page for US House of Representatives - 105th Congress. Here you can look up your Congressional Representative ... with just your zip code.

Other information from Congress:

The Law Library of Congress began its existence in 1801 essentially as a collection of law books. But in 1832, Congress ordered the 2,011 law books of the Library of Congress separated from its general collection, and the Law Library of Congress was thereby established. Its mission is to provide research and legal information to the U.S. Congress as well as to U.S. Federal Courts and Executive Agencies, and to offer reference services to the public. To accomplish this mission, it has created the world's largest collection of law books and other legal resources from all countries, and now moves into the age of digitized information with these online databases and guides to legal information worldwide.

*Science*


*Astronomy*

Astronomical Society of the Palm Beaches


*Misc.*

These are some neat site that are difficult to catagorize. Different kinds of earch engines, FREE vertual greeting cards, Teddy Bears by mail, etc.
Four11 Directory Services - You know how you dial "411" on your phone to find somebody. Well, somebody realized we "were" missing that on the web. I say "were" because it here and it's been here for a while. I'm a member and you should be too. Unfortunately, they don't "just have" everyone's name and e-mail address. You have to log in and get listed ... so people can find you! Basic membership is FREE, companies pay a very small amount. And thay have a news letter too. Try it! You can look me up!
Beverly Hills Teddy Bears - Here the name pretty much sez it all. This is a free site to visit but obviously, if you're going to send someone a teddy bear (in-the-fur ... so to speak) it's not going to be free. They have some really cute bears ... check 'em out.
iVillage - This is a site for women. Info on how to ballance kids and a job, medical info, help with meal planning, etc. It also has a section where you can send E-Postcards. If you're a guy, your Lady will love getting a card from here.

E-Cards

Blue Mountain Arts' Electronic Greeting Cards - You ever want to send someone a birthday or some other kind of card on the net? This is the place to do it. You'll need their e-mail address (see Four11 above) and a few minutes ... that's it. No stamp, no envelope, no filloing out a long address the Mail "person" won't be able to read anyway. Just a few clicks and it's done ... for FREE! Oh, well, Hallmark (remember; Hallmark is anti-gun!).
Oh My Goodness.com - If you've looked at Blue Mountain Arts' Cards (above) then you've seen the "tame" cards on the web. NOW, take a look at Oh My Goodness.com for the "WILD" side. Again, these are free cards but boy, some of them are fairly off-the-wall. Be advised: there are some "heavy R" or even "X-rated" cards on this site. Have Fun!
coolcards.com
Hallmark Cards - Just like in the store. Some of these are free, some are not. Not one of my favorite sites, but has some cool stuff on it. (remember; Hallmark is anti-gun!)
Postcards from Prison - Some really cool (artsy) photos of prison life. Some in Black & White, some in colour.
MessageMates - Animated cards for all occations!
