NOBODY GETS HURT?
Last year when we were in Disney World our 4, almost 5, year old grandson hesitated to get on some of the scary looking rides. While we were in
line for one of the drop rides grandma said to him, "Look, people get on people get off and nobody gets hurt." Of course he loves and trusts his
grandmother so we had a great time. But, is she really on the mark? How would we know?
If you are interested in the safety and track record of a specific ride or park along with some helpful information on safety tips.
If you are interested in the science behind the thrill rides.
If you are interested in some of the history of the parks or rides.

IS THAT REALLY TRUE?
Our world is becoming saturated with information and misinformation, and all too often telling one from the other proves to be an almost
impossible task. Especially here on the Internet, sorting fact from fantasy is a Herculean and frustrating undertaking. Even your best friends
can't help -- they're often the very ones guilty of dumping the latest suspect tale into your inbox, putting you into this position.
The following skeptical Web sites allow you to double-check Internet rumors. Truth or Fiction (www.truthorfiction.com) provides a list of out-and-out urban legends, disputed tales and true stories,
all searchable. Snopes.com (www.snopes.com) gives you the low down on not only urban legends but also common
fallacies, misinformation, old wives' tales, strange news stories, rumors, celebrity gossip, and similar items. A good backup is About's Urban
legends and Folklore site (www.urbanlegends.about.com). Concerned about medical hoaxes? Quack watch (www.quackwatch.org) zeros in on dentistry scams, health fraud, quackery and homeopathy, to name just a few.
You'll also find advice on how to pick a doctor, how to spot scams and more.

Last month we told you how to be a "froogle" shopper just before Mother's Day - and hopefully you took advantage of such knowledge to get
something really nice for mom.
Now we approach Father's day and as we already know how to find great bargains on line we have time to let our minds wander. Where did such
holidays begin? They haven't, believe it or not, been around forever.
Mrs. John B. Dodd, of Washington, first proposed the idea of a "father's day" in 1909. Mrs. Dodd wanted a special day to honor her father, William
Smart. William Smart, a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife (Mrs. Dodd's mother) died in childbirth with their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left
to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington State. It was after Mrs. Dodd became an adult that
she realized the strength and selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent.
The first Father's Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. At about the same time in various towns and cities across American other
people were beginning to celebrate a "father's day." In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Finally in 1966
President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day.
Father's Day has become a day to not only honor your father, but all men who act as a father figure. Stepfathers, uncles, grandfathers, and adult
male friends are all honored on Father's Day.
By the way the first Mother's Day has origins dating back centuries but the holiday was declared official by some states beginning in 1912. In
1914 President Woodrow Wilson declared the first national Mother's Day.
Happy Father's Day!
