How are you sleeping lately? Do you ever stay awake worrying if your hard earned dollars are safe? If this question even enters your mind you should visit this place to check out your keeper of the gelt.

This easy on-line service is designed to provide information on the relative financial strength and stability of U.S. commercial banks, savings institutions and credit unions. Simply enter the institution you wish to check out and -Shazam - right before your eyes appears a star rating and number rating along with an executive summary and/or financial statement.

Trick #2: See If You're Massive

Here's a quick one trick pony that will let you know in an instant if you have been over doing the feed bag.

This little on-line program helps you to find your body mass index (BMI) -- a quick way to see if your weight is healthy for your height. Your BMI value is useful for predicting your health risks and is one of many factors that influence your health. When no one is looking, just type in your height, weight, age and sex - click, and in less than a second you have the bad news staring back at you from the screen.

To your good health.

Great Place #1: Google's New Browser

You kind of knew this was going to happen. Google is at it again, this time with a browser rivaling Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

They call it "Chrome" and as you'd expect it does some neat things with information. When you type in the address bar you'll get suggestions for both search and web pages. You can access your favorite pages instantly from any new tab. You can get desktop shortcuts to launch your favorite web applications.

Although it's still early in the game, you can bet if it's Google it won't be evil - but don't ask Bill Gates.

Great Place: Travel With a Doctor At Your Side

When traveling how would you like to know that there'll always be a medical Doctor that speaks your language available and close at hand?

For almost 50 years this impressive non-profit membership organization has been a leader in the field of travel medicine, advising travelers about health risks and environmental and climatic conditions around the world.

And most important they maintain a network of physicians (general practitioners and specialists who speak English and have had medical training in North America or Europe), hospitals and clinics around the world - even in very remote locations - who have agreed to treat members during their journey.

Any traveler can join this prestigious group and best of all there is no charge -- but a donation is always appreciated.
