    Greetings from the Editor
    by Carol Hall

    Greetings to all of you! I hope you enjoy this edition of The On Ramp and I look forward to hearing from you. Summer seems to be well underway, and with that comes vacations! I have included some helpful information for connecting to the Internet while you are on the road.

    In addition to that, don't forget...you can access your BMI email from any computer with Internet access (at your cousin's house where you are staying, at the complimentary computer set up in the lobby of your hotel, at a public library, etc). The internet has made it much easier to "stay in touch" while away on vacation, be that a good thing, or a bad thing!

    We are still trying to locate and test an acceptable Sudoku puzzle interface to include in the newsletter. As you may have guessed...we don't have one yet, but we will continue to work on it until we find one! Thank you for your patience.

    I welcome your comments and additions to the newsletter! Please email me at editor@bmi.net

    Even if your recipe for Summer Fun didn't include sunburns, bee stings and scrapped knees...there is a good chance you will still get to experience them! Funny how that works! As we spend more time outside enjoying the warmth, going on nature hikes and splashing in the pool, we increase the chances of mishaps. I have listed a ... - CONTINUED

    by Nathon Oneel

    full story  | top
    Car parts can sometimes be hard to find (and costly) at your local auto parts store. The Internet can make this easier if you know how to search. Even if your search is worded incorrectly, you can usually find what you are looking for.

    One of my favorite sites to begin searching for parts is CONTINUED
