According to Thomas Perls, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Medicine at Boston University Medical Center and Director of the New England Centenarian Study, good health is an essential part of good living. An important step in keeping your mind and body healthy and functional is to regularly evaluate how you are doing. At www.livingto100.com, a site and program developed by Dr. Perls, you can give yourself a checkup on your way to becoming a Centurion. His Life Expectancy Calculator is a great tool to assess quickly what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong and where you can make important life style changes. You can retake the quiz and change your answers to see how those changes would impact your calculated life span. Take a few minutes out of your 100 years and get an update on your health!

At www.catster.com and www.dogster.com you can create your own web pages to announce your pet to the world. There are always site upgrades or options you can buy, but these sites do allow you to create a free pet web page, post pet pictures, make new pet friends and share pet stories, while giving you informative and helpful pet information. If pictures are truly worth a thousand words, then get ready to read billions and see the links to which we will go to glorify our pets.

BizRate’s new-and-improved shopping search engine at www.shopzilla.com lets you quickly compare prices from different online stores that sell the item you want. If your search words are broad, you’ll get a list of departments to choose from, and you can refine your search by price range, brand and other distinguishing features. Merchant ratings, a series of scores based on consumer feedback, help with the decision-making. Click the “All Depts.” link at the top of the page to find an alphabetized list of hundreds of highly specific product categories, from action figures to yogurt makers. According to the site math, they track over 30 million products from 55,000 retailers worldwide. Now this is a shopper’s helper!

New babies and graduations can create confusion, agony and despair when it comes to buying the right gift to commemorate these occasions.
