    What was the last search you did on the internet?

    For instance I spent a few hours reading the forums on problems and solutions for a Ford Ranger that does not run well going uphill. (It has an ignition miss under a load) Before that I spent time researching store outlets for the best price for something I want to buy. Another is I read reviews on a restaurant we are thinking of trying. How about you . . . what the last thing you searched out on the internet?

    Hi Tim,
    I was writing a 1 page article on Insurance industry and its trends and how they should keep aligned to the technology pace. So I was doing some research on those topics and trying to understand the latest trends on that stuff.
    Other thing I did is, my spouse is owning a website onsonlineshopping dot com . I am trying to do some research on products which consumers will love to buy and adding the products in my site. Its quite a new site and I am working on fixing the site as I am looking for feedback from my friends and fixing them one after the other for betterment of the consumers.

      Hello! There is so much value with writing isn't there for researching. I use it much for that than for pleasure. Well . . . maybe researching is pleasurable.

    Hi Tim,

    I do so many searches that it is difficult to remember which was the last one.

    Aeons ago I kept a dictionary, a thesaurus and an atlas in the kitchen for my use and for answering the children's questions.  We always have books around us.

    Now, I still have books, but very few [basic] reference ones.  Anything and everything that leaves me with a question mark in my head propels me to the PC - which is always on - and there, more often than not, I get what I need to know.

    These searches could be - name of a place, info about a medication, travel plans for near or far, how to write for publishing, definition of a word or a term, some statistic, how to cook xyz, how to. . . .

    Sooooo many questions, it is wonderful to be able to ask a question and get an immediate answer, rather than have to spend hours poring over big books to find the specific item you want.

    The above is of course only a small selection of subjects. . . .

      Hello Marie! I still have my dictionary at my desk, but never use it. Other reference books are on specific topics. I take a peek then dash onto the PC to research further. I too research medical Questions. It is nice to check more than one source.

      I feel so fortunate that I now have so much information at my fingertips.  The younger set will never know the riches that are manifest in this little box on the desk, because they cannot imagine life without it, and I - and many of my peers- can.

    Today it was mental health issues, antique corner chair, printers and the recommendations in regard to price, verses ink usage and ink prices. I don't buy anything without researching it first
