Maria Jones: Hot Skating Grandma
Just because you're a 75-year-old grandma doesn't mean you can't go out
and have some fun at the roller rink. Maria Jones is more than just a
"fun-loving 4-foot-10 great-grandmother with a great pair of legs," she's also
a gold medal winner at the California State Games. Check out her site to
see what roller skating events she's competed in, and don't miss Maria's closet,
where you can choose her skating costumes!

other beings living in the Tau Ceti system.
Mr. Beller's Neighborhood
Pretend you have your own surveillance satellite spying on Manhattan. Just click on a
particular neighborhood for a closer look and read stories from the webmaster
Thomas Beller. It's just like being in the Big Apple without having to
deal with potiential muggers, smelly subways, harsh weather and annoying tourists.
The Tech Museum: Robotics
Make good with our future leaders by studying their history. I'm not talking
about whiny politicians or an alien race waiting in the cosmos to pounce. No,
our next masters will probably be the robots who service our cars and cook our
popcorn. Read about the latest robots and see where they came from in this
special guide from The Tech Museum.
