Dating and Romance
==================

Are you ready for Valentine's Day?

Let me help you.  Just visit Harley Hahn's
Internet Exploration Station and look at the newly
revised "Dating and Romance" theme area:

http://www.harley.com/hhies/

You'll find Web sites, Usenet discussion groups,
and Internet mailing lists to help you keep your
special someone happy (or help you find a special
someone to keep you happy).

You'll also find information about Usenet, as well
as mailing lists, in case they are new to you.

All the resources in Harley Hahn's Internet
Exploration Station -- just like all the resources
in my books -- are free.  In addition to making
sure that everything I recommend is free, I also
do the best I can to ensure that the Web sites are
as stable and non-commercial as possible.

By the way, the resources in Harley Hahn's
Internet Exploration Station are taken from my
Yellow Pages book ("Harley Hahn's Internet Yellow
Pages").  For more information about the book,
see:

Kristyn
=======

Would you like to read one of my stories?  I have
just put a new story, called "Kristyn", on my Web
site.  Here is the beginning of the story:

                 ------------------

"There is no place more lonely," thought Kristyn,
"than a big city."

Usually, she liked Christmas in the city, but this
year was not a good one. In many ways, her life
was unfolding comfortably -- slowly most of the
time; in rapid, jerky sideways movements at other
times; but this year --this Christmas was not a
good one because Mike was slipping away...

                 ------------------

I hope you enjoy it.


=====================
The Economic Recovery
=====================

Since the spring of 2001, the U.S. economy -- as
well as much of the world -- has been in a
recession.

Technically, a recession is defined as 6
consecutive months with no economic growth.  Less
technically, a recession is a time when business
is bad everywhere and life is hard for just about
everyone.

Eventually, the recession will end, but when?.  I
have written an essay called "Using Information
Indicators to Recognize an Economic Recovery", in
which I discuss this question:

http://www.harley.com/writing/economic-recovery.html

If you are an economics buff, or if you invest in
the stock market, you'll find this essay
interesting.

By the way, if you like reading about money,

=============================
Welcome to Ms. Wendel's Class
=============================

Karen Wendel is a teacher at Northeast Community
College in Sheridan, Wyoming, who uses one of my
books to teach a class about the Internet.

To help her class learn about the Net, Ms. Wendel
had them visit my Web site and sign up for my
newsletter.  So, welcome to:


  Gay,
    Jean,
      Julie,
          Kate,
            Leah,
              Liz,
                Mary,
                  Mike,
                    Monica,
                      Paul,
                        Tabetha,
                            Thomas... and Karen.


Note to teachers: If you are teaching an Internet-
related course, you may want to consider using
"Harley Hahn's Internet Advisor":

http://www.harley.com/books/ia1.html

The book is actually the third edition of "Harley
Hahn Teaches the Internet".  (It was renamed for
marketing reasons.)

Let me know if you would like a review copy.
