Here is a dictionary to check a word you are unsure of. Many words in the English language are spelled differently but pronounced the same. I have found these excellent tools : ADD Inline Google definitions to FireFox
ADD Google Define to IE

My thanks salty as I wanted a Firefox spell checker. Now I have it installed and like IE Spell Checker it is in the right click. But better than IE as it underlines the words so you notice when one is wrong....

Just what are the IE and firefox "in google definitions ? I'm getting lazy. And time is short as I need to shave/shower and go out to eat and read 3 days of newspapers.

While I was looking up those links, I found two wonderful excellerators for IE and FF. Each allows you to social bookmark with multiple sites out of one tool bar or 'right click'. Neat.

for FF Samfind

and for IE Shareaholic

Well, this isn't a spell checker, but it's a site where your kids or grans can learn about money.

Age appropriately:

I have IE 8 and don't use them. I try to stay away from other social networking sites as this site is enough for me.

And getting out of hand to. I am thinking why bother staying. But you and zoobie, FS, Mr.Liberty, cnredd, Mikeyy, foundit66,Spencer and many others do make it worth while. Why let a few spoiled eggs ruin it.

Lightbulb Re: Spell Checkers and Definition thingys

I was at the doctor's office today waiting on my husband to be fitted with two hearing aids.
While I was there I started browsing magazines and came across this article about an Israeli who started a company that employs not only Israelis but Palestinians.
It seems this guy had observed his daughter laboriously emailing herself documents from her PC so she could use them elsewhere. (I have done this with programs and documents ). He thought 'why isn't there an easier way to do this?' So he invented one.
His tag line is "No walls..." Sound familiar? They are in a copyright battle w/ Microsoft right now over the use of that tagline.
Microsoft has more things to worry about, because the software this guy and his Palestinian and Israeli engineers came up with will probably make windows obsolete in a few years.

Anyway I am trying it out. Hopefully, I can go to any library or a friend's computer and access all the programs, games and documents that have been synced with my home computer.
Oh! And did I mention you can drag and drop videos?

or

type in http://g.ho.st
there's no dot com or dot org-weird huh?
