WITandWISDOM(tm) - May 24, 2001
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow. - Orison Swett Marden

~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Famed pianist Artur Rubinstein, celebrating his 84th birthday, said: "As long as we have what we have inside, the capacity to love, to work, to hear music, to see a flower, to look at the world as it is, nothing can stop us from being happy . . . but one thing you must take seriously. You must get rid of the ifs of life. Many people tell you, 'I would be happy - if I had a certain job, or if I were better looking, or if a certain person would marry me.' There isn't any such thing. You must live your life unconditionally, without the ifs."

~~~~~~~ KEEP SMILING:
A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan, in which a man was beaten, robbed and left for dead. She described the situation in vivid detail so her students would catch the drama. Then she asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence. "I think I'd throw up."

Is there a free Web hosting site that won't alter the appearance of my web pages with frames or banners? - Dennis Morgan, Everett, WA.
Most free Web hosting sites such as GeoCities, Tripod and Homestead support themselves with advertising. Along with a free Web page, you get their ads. What do you want for nothing?
You may have other choices, though. Check with your Internet service provider. AOL, EarthLink, AT&T, Verio and other ISPs offer Web space for small personal sites at no extra charge.
Doteasy http://www.doteasy.com offers ad-free space if you use the company to register your domain name for a reasonable $15 per year for five years (it's $25 for one year, $38 for two). If you were planning to buy a custom domain name anyway, this sounds like a good deal. (If you already have a domain name, there is a $35 transfer fee.)
If you run a nonprofit or charitable organization, many companies will support your work with free Web hosting. For example, groups that help deaf people can create free sites at DeafVision http://www.deafvision.com/nonprofit Yahoo! lists many similar services. Search for "non-profit Web hosting."
