On my sister- in - laws site Mrs.Miles she add a free site that helps with english:

This was what she had to say about it : You come across a word you don't recognize - or you need a quick synonym for a word. You don't have to get up and get your dictionary, nor have to open up a word program or go online either. The secret? There's a nifty little program I've been using for a few days now, and its proving itself VERY helpful. It's called WordWeb and its a free download. It comes with it's own library of words and can even do audio of speech-to-text, standalone, if you have that feature enabled from your existing word program. If you're like me you will be wondering how you did without it!
By the way, it FREE


Patty check it out something you would want !!!!
I hope you will read this thru many times we miss what is important:
We tried so hard to make things better for our kids that we made them worse.
For my grandchildren, I'd like better.
I'd really like for them to know about hand me down clothes and homemade
ice cream and leftover meat loaf sandwiches. I really would.
I hope you learn humility by being humiliated, and that you learn honesty by
being cheated.
I hope you learn to make your own bed and mow the lawn and wash the car.
And I really hope nobody gives you a brand new car when you are sixteen.
It will be good if at least one time you can see puppies born and your old dog
put to sleep.
I hope you get a black eye fighting for something you believe in.
I hope you have to share a bedroom with your younger brother/sister. And it's
all right if you have to draw a line down the middle of the room, but when he
wants to crawl under the covers with you because he's scared, I hope you let
When you want to see a movie and your little brother/sister wants to tag along
I hope you'll let him/her.
I hope you have to walk uphill to school with your friends and that you live in
a town where you can do it safely.
On rainy days when you have to catch a ride, I hope you don't ask your driver to
drop you two blocks away so you won't be seen riding with someone as uncool as
your Mom.
If you want a slingshot, I hope your Dad teaches you how to make one instead of
buying one.
I hope you learn to dig in the dirt and read books.
When you learn to use computers, I hope you also learn to add and subtract in
your head.
I hope you get teased by your friends when you have your first crush on a
boy\girl,and when you talk back to your mother that you learn what ivory soap
tastes like.
May you skin your knee climbing a mountain, burn your hand on a stove and stick
your tongue on a frozen flagpole.
I don't care if you try a beer once, but I hope you don't like it.
And if a friend offers you dope or a joint, I hope you realize he is not your friend.
I sure hope you make time to sit on a porch with your Grandma/Grandpa .
And go fishing with your Uncle.
May you feel sorrow at a funeral and joy during the holidays.
I hope your mother punishes you when you throw a baseball through your neighbor's window
and that she hugs you and kisses you at Hannukah/Christmas time when you give her a plaster mold of your hand.
These things I wish for you - tough times and disappointment, hard work and happiness.
To me, it's the only way to appreciate life.

Written with a pen.
Sealed with a kiss.
I'm here for you.
And if I die before you do, I'll go to heaven and wait for you.

We secure our friends, not by accepting favors, but by doing them.

I thought about how much kids of today have missed out and how many of them are hurting for old fashion LOVE......
