I was at a child's birthday party last weekend when one of the 
little rascals came up to me and said, "Are you Santa Claus?"
I was surprised, but I do have a beard, and it's got a little 
white in it, and I am a little overweight...so one could argue 
that it was an easy mistake.
However, I'm not Santa Claus overweight, my beard is still 
mostly black and it's trimmed short and neat, and I don't wear 
red suits and funny hats - so I quickly determined someone must 
have put the little dickens up to it.
I answered, "Why yes I am, and if you tell me who told you to 
ask me that, I'll make sure you get lots of extra presents for 
"Daddy," he answered.
Ha! Now if daddy wants this little 5 or 6 year old to keep 
believing in Santa Claus, he'd better come up with some extra 
presents! :)

       "Studies show Ginseng is effective in treating 
        circulation problems, fatigue, lack of energy, 
        stress and anxiety."

Throughout ancient history, Ginseng has been praised for its 
exceptional nutrition value. Modern nutrition researchers 
also regard Ginseng as a valuable herb because of its naturally-
proportioned wealth of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, & co-enzymes. 

We're SO SURE that our "Ginseng Energy" will help you, we're
practically giving it away. For a fraction of the store
price you can get 60 pills to see for yourself what the
'miracle of Ginseng' can do for you. Grab a bottle by visiting

Question: I saw a web site with a scrolling hole in the page. 
How is that done?
Simon Says: A scrolling hole, huh? I've never heard it called 
that, but I suspect you're referring to an inline frame.
For those that don't know, an inline frame, or iframe for 
short, is like a little window you can place on your page that 
can have other pages load inside the frame without needing to 
reload the entire page.
First, let's make an iframe:
<.iframe src="iframe.html" align="right"
  name="#coolwhip" width="400" height="100">
<.a href="iframe.html">Link for non-iframe browsers<./a><./iframe>
In the first line of code, where you see: src="iframe.html"

...this is the page you want to have load in the iframe when 
the main page first loads. The page in the iframe doesn't have 
to be named iframe.html, it can be named anything. It could be 
a text file too, it doesn't have to be an HTML file.
In the second line of code, notice that I gave the iframe a 
name (name="#coolwhip"). This is important because the name 
becomes the link target. The name can be anything. I chose 
coolwhip in honor of a friend who gets a kick out of little 
touches like that. (Hi Shan) The name must prefaced with a 
pound sign (#), that's what tells the browser the link target 
is on the same page as the link. Note that the first two 
lines are both part of the opening iframe tag and could be 
all placed on one line in your source code, but I had to place 
it on two lines for this ezine format.

In the third line of code, you see a link. That is for older 
browsers that can't display the iframe. Rather than an iframe, 
the link is displayed so users can click the link to read the 
content you are displaying in the iframe.
For some, that's all they need an iframe for, to display a lot 
of information in a small space. Others may want to have links 
open inside the iframe. Here's how to code a link so it opens 
in the iframe:
<.a href="SomePage.html" target="#coolwhip">Link Text<./a>
It's as simple as adding the target to a regular link. So there 
you go, you've been framed, iframed you. Hardy har har.
Iframes are supported by Internet Explorer 3 and later, Netscape 
6 and later, and Opera 4 and later, and Firefox (not sure which 
versions). If you use any other browser, you must be used to 
figuring out what works on your own by now. :)

SURFIN' THE WEB - 10 Ways to Support the Troops
Whether you're for or against the war in Iraq, all Americans 
should support the troops fighting the war against terror. A 
lot of people say they support the troops, but do nothing to 
support them.
As a former Navy man, I know first-hand the sacrifices our 
military men and women have to make during peace time, and 
it's tremendous. War brings a whole new level of sacrifices 
few can imagine adequately. Let's not forget, we have our 
freedom because of the sacrifices generations of military 
So do you support the troops? Do it with more than words, 
please. The link below will show you 10 Ways to Support the 
Troops with real deeds, not just hollow words. There is sure 
to be at least one way that to support them that feels right 
to you. With Christmas approaching it's the loneliest time 
of the year for a soldier overseas. Won't you please show you

For those that use Internet Explorer to browse the web, IE 7 
is not available. Even you use another browser, if you have

version 7 even if you don't use it. Why? It has security 
upgrades that will help protect your operating system better.
