From her journal to movies, the tragic story of Anne Frank has fascinated millions of people. has a special section on their webpage called the Secret Annex Online that allows you to explore the secret annex where she and her family hid from the Nazis. From this site you can explore the apartment and all of the hiding places and learn about all the people involved. After you explore her living quarters you can view videos, read articles, and see photographs as well. The Secret Annex Online is one of the most compelling sources available to learn about the Anne Frank story.


Colonial Williamsburg
I have yet to come across a site that shares colonial life as well as this site. When you  explore Colonial Williamsburg's history section. you can learn about the people, places, life, trades, social classes, food, politics and the list goes on. Each area of interest is accurately described but in a way that students will find interesting. Their vibrant pictures from Colonial Williamsburg are so much more interesting to kids, unlike the drab drawings or painting found on most sites. My favorite area is their food section because it includes the recipes for actual colonial dishes. The site's multimedia area is overflowing with tremendously useful and engaging tools and resources. This area of their website contain a daily jigsaw puzzle, webcams from Williamsburg, today in history, and blogs. There is a download section with wallpaper, screen savers, and even ringtones. Students can learn about life in Williamsburg with their collection of videos, podcasts, and their audio section. Finally, you can send a greeting from their e-postcard section. The final area to visit is the kids section of the website. The kids section is geared toward elementary level students and offers opportunities to learn about the people and history of Colonial Williamsburg in a a more kid friendly way.

After being in relationship with him for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything... possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he ..said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
