So when did google become a verb?

So when did google become a verb? I googled the phrase "google became a verb" and learned that it happened on July 8th, 2006. On that day "google" was added as a verb in the Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary.

 One entry found for google. Main Entry: goo·gle 
 Pronunciation: 'gü-g&l
 Function: transitive verb
 Inflected Form(s): goo·gled; goo·gling  /-g(&-) li[ng]/
 Usage: often capitalized
 Etymology: Google, trademark for a search engine
 : to use the Google search engine to obtain information
   about (as a person) on the World Wide Web 

I remember using google as a verb before then but it's good to know that the folks at Merriam-Webster google too.

Power of the Internet is People...

I've heard it said that the Internet isolates people. That's not true. It brings people together, often people who would never find each other otherwise. This week New Orleans was flooded by hurricane Katrina. Thousands of people are now homeless and in need of a place to go, any place. On, folks from all over the country are posting invitations to unknown people in need, "Come stay with us."

Here's one example from Pennsylvania:

5 Bedroom home on 6 acres available immediately; ideal for large is available for as long as you need it...transportation from southern airports available; contact post for more info

My Summer Vacation

I just got back from a week of camping at my favorite spot, Sand Island, a public marine park next to St. Helens, Ore. Sand Island sits right in the middle of the Columbia River. There is usually a cool NW breeze that comes right up the river from Astoria on the Pacific Ocean. We’ve been camping there for the last 20 years.

We camp with other families and friends and there is often a large group there. During the week we have the island to ourselves. I’m still amazed that such a nice place is not more popular. We swim in the Columbia river, play with the boats, throw sticks for the dogs, read, read, and read. There also seems to be an endless game of hearts going. I almost shot the moon two nights ago.
