Background

The big wonderful Net. Its so big with so much to offer. Try to find something in particular.. Yahoo and some of the traditional search engines were great when the web was smaller.. Now even many of them are branching off to particular interest groups.

It is not my place to offer every possible search mechanism available. What I am providing here is rather a collection of search sources, and a place to go to find many more.. some with particular interests... hopefully your interests will connect with one of the search mechanisms.

This one is a real blast! Think of someone anywhere in the country. If they have a listing in a phone book, this connection
switchboard will give you the number. This site claims to have 90 that right 90 million phone numbers at the tip of your computer keyboard...so to speak.. have some fun with this time sink... but don't blame me... he he he!

Can't find that Zip!
