search for anything at all

When it comes to the Internet, everything seems possible, whether it is finding the right kind of binoculars to take on that birding trip or pressure washers for your boss. Interestingly, each search makes one as curious about the next. I'm a huge believer in books and their longevity, but when it comes to searching for words and spellings, I automatically go to the Internet to search and bypass the physical dictionary and thesaurus. So, while it's good for many things, it has also led to such a different way of life and turned the emphasis on searching.

Hello Shalini,

I agree. I also do Google search for almost everything...followed by Amazon search [for books and movies]. Life becomes a lot easier this way and true, one search leads to another and we land up in some unknown territory at the end, sometimes ! I also do g.blogger search a lot.
