Anne Frank House

This is a very informative website showing a 3D walkthrough of Anne Frank's house.  It provides videos and excerpts from her diary at different points of interest in the house.  I really enjoyed learning new information as I took the tour.

Three Awesome Websites

Love these three websites about our solar system.  I spent a couple hours this morning perusing the loads of information on the 50th anniversary website for NASA.  It was great!  Check all three out.

I have been using Dropbox for about a year and a half now and I don't know what I would do without it!  It is amazing to have files on my laptop and my home computer always in sync.  I never have to worry about losing a file since I can always go online and find any file I have deleted.  I trusted it enough to hold all my national board portfolios.  You get 2GB free and the more you share it, the more space you can get.  I am up to 5.5 GB!  I don't have any plans to change, but I just found out about Sugarsync.  It looks like a similar program to Dropbox, but a free account gives you 5GB right from the start.  I am not sure if you could use both of the programs together on the same computer or not.  It might not be a bad idea for those who haven't tried either program and want to start backing up their files.
I liked this article from the Sacramento Bee about home visits.
