Check to see if something on the Internet is true or not:

Well this site will clue you in as to whether they are Truth or Fiction. I always go there now before forwarding any email to friends that way none of us look foolish :)
www.gardenersnet.com/ - Another must-log-onto site for gardeners. Any query you may have can most likely be answered here.
imdb.com/ - Okay how many times have you been chatting w/someone and either you or they are trying to remember; the name of an actor, what movie they were in, who directed a picture, or even who did the soundtrack.

What a wonderful story. Allison is my Hero of the Day.
When you're a kid, the only thing you look forward to more than Christmas presents .. BIRTHDAY presents. But not ALL 10-year-olds are materialistic little brats.
For example, 10-year-old Allison Henry from Palmer, Massachusetts. Allison was looking forward to her birthday recently. Then she found out that a dog named Ryker was in more need than she was.
Ryker is a K-9 unit with Allison's local police force. And while most police officers wear bulletproof vests, apparently the vests for DOGS are pretty pricey. So not all police departments have them, and Ryker has always done his job without one.
But Allison didn't think that was right. So instead of asking for birthday presents this year, she asked friends and family to donate to the cause . . . and raised almost a THOUSAND DOLLARS to buy Ryker a vest.
On Thursday, the police station held a ceremony to thank Allison for what she did. Police Chief James Neiswanger said it's a reminder that even at 10 years old, anyone is capable of making a positive impact on the world.
