Ann, over at For the Long Run, wants to hear about a website that has changed my life – one that has really made a difference to me. There are lots of those, but I’d have to say that my top two picks are the Google search engine and Amazon.
I’m a homeschooling mom and my kids ask questions all day, every day. when they stump me, I just turn to my handy-dandy Google box and type in what I want to know. Like the Wizard of Oz, I always get an answer and it’s usually just what I need. Likewise, when I want to know stuff about what’s different in the Byzantine Catholic Church as opposed to the Roman Catholic, just type it in the box and voila! Recipe for fudge that uses Velveeta cheese? It’s in there. Pea salad with Velveeta and mayo? That too. It’s the Ragu of search engines.
Amazon……I could have a wish list over there that is a million items long. I’ve found books on Amazon that I read as a child, and now can introduce them to my checs – especially those wonderful Marguerite Henry horse novelettes that girlchec is devouring now!
I don’t necessarily visit Amazon every day, but I’d hazard a guess that Google gets my business several times a day, every day.
