Did You Know? On this day in 1848, gas lights were installed at the White House for the first time.
Space Station: With the recent failure of the Mars mission, the space program could use a little pick-me-up. We all cheered when John Glenn took to the skies again, but--let's face it--that was more a PR move by NASA than anything of serious scientific merit. The Space Station, on the other hand, that's where the real action is. Whether you're mildly curious about this USA/Russian hookup far up in the sky or a die-hard aficionado(who said dat?) of all things interstellar, you'll find something of interest on this jam-packed site. Presented by Encyberpedia and NASA, Spacestation.com offers true geeks the opportunity to view real-time space station data and gives the rest of us a chance to meet the crew, discover the history of space travel, and view launchings. Who knows? Maybe someday we'll all be up there(except me), checking out Web sites about the planet Earth.
New Virus disguised as Y2K bug patch! The virus, dubbed W95.Babylonia, is "spreading quickly worldwide" on Windows-based computers, said antivirus software company Symantec.
John Hamre, Deputy Secretary of Defense, had this to say about the
impending arrival of January 1, 2000:
DENGUE DEATH BRINGS WARNING IN TEXAS: Texans who live near the Mexican border are being cautioned about the risks of dengue fever in the wake of the state's first death from the disease in decades. Texas health officials confirm a girl died from dengue fever earlier this month in South Texas. They believe she contracted the mosquito-borne virus on a visit to Mexico. The girl died from dengue hemorrhagic fever, a variation of the disease marked by internal bleeding. Fifty-one other cases have been confirmed in Texas this year. The dengue virus, which is prevalent in parts of Central America, South America and Asia, is carried mainly by the Aedes aegypti mosquito. Health officials say the best way to reduce risk is to eliminate sources of standing water, such as old tires, tin cans, birdbaths and flowerpot bases - all prime mosquito breeding grounds. Symptoms of dengue fever include sudden onset of high fever, severe headache, joint and muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and rash.
Folks, let me know yer thoughts or concerns fer Y2K! Also, if ya have any questions about Y2K computer problems that ya'll encountered, E-mail them to My Y2K Thoughts.

EDIBILITY RULE - MEMORY TOOL
NO PUNISHMENT: Reassure your children that no one will be angry with them if they get lost. There have been cases where children have hidden from searchers because they were afraid of being punished.
HUG A TREE: Teach your children that a tree can be a friend. Tell them if they ever get lost to select a tree near a clearing and stay there. If they are frightened, they can hug and talk to the tree. This will help prevent panic and keep the child in one place, increasing chances of discovery.
