I attended a meeting today for people who are somewhat new to the internet. While the majority of the meeting consisted of things that I have known about for years, it occurred to me that maybe it would be a good idea for me to offer up some tips for surfing the web for those of you who may only use the web for email and occasional search engine searches.

One of the sites that was mentioned today is www.411.com. This is one of the most useful resources on the web. How many times have you called 411 on your telephone for directory assistance? 411.com does exactly the same, but online. And, it not only gives you the phone number, but also the full address. Give it a try. Do a search for your own name and see what comes up. All you have to know about a person is their name. It'll find them unless they have an unlisted phone number.

What's more, once you've found who you are looking for, click on their name and it will bring up their individual listing. Then, you can find out who their neighbors are by clicking on the "Find Neighbors" link. This is especially helpful if you are new to an area and you would like to know who your neighbors are...

Periodically, I'll share other websites that you may not know about. Until then, good luck and have a great day!
