Question: I often send e-mail messages
to a long list of friends and family but I'm concerned about revealing their
e-mail addresses in the "TO" field. I've heard about the BCC feature,
but how exactly do I use it? I use Windows XP Home Edition for my operating
system and Outlook Express for e-mail.
Answer: "BCC" stands for Blind Carbon Copy, and it's a good way to send messages to many recipients without showing the world all of their e-mail addresses. When using Outlook Express, you won't necessarily see the "BCC" field when you create a new message. So after you create a message, click your cursor arrow on its "View" menu item. Select "All Headers" and the "BCC" field will be visible right below the "CC" field of the message. Then simply enter the e-mail addresses of your chosen recipients. Please note sometimes spam filters will catch messages that don't have anything in the "TO" field, so put your recipients in the "BCC" field but in addition put your own address in the "TO" field to avoid that problem. All e-mail client software programs have the "BCC" option. If you use a program other than Outlook Express and can't find the BCC field in your particular program, check the program's help files to locate it.

Sweet Celebration for Hersheypark
http://hersheypa.com/attractions/hersheypark/100th - When Milton Hershey opened Hersheypark in 1907, it featured a merry-go-round, an amphitheatre, and 5¢ chocolate bars. Now the amusement park in cocoa-crazed Hershey, Pennsylvania, includes twisting steel coasters, live entertainment, and a new boardwalk with the largest water-play structure in the world. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hersheypark (and of the Hershey's Kiss), Hershey is throwing a sweet celebration. You'll find all the delicious details at this site including visitor information and lodging options.
Building an Ark for a Flood of Laughter
http://evanalmighty.com - Opening this month is a comedy of biblical proportions, Evan Almighty, which has Steve Carell reprising his role as newscaster Evan Baxter from the movie Bruce Almighty. Evan is visited by God (Morgan Freeman) and asked to build an ark - a task that turns his life upside down and creates animal antics in two-by-two fashion. Check out this site to watch the trailer and other video clips, try your luck at ark games, or take a look inside Evan's Ark Building for Dummies book. Rated PG.
