It's Good to Know: 5 Things You Might Not Know You Can Do on Google

1. Enter "define" in the Google search box, then a colon, then a space, and then the word or expression you want defined. (This really works - goodbye www.m-w.com!)

2. Find out what Google thinks about just about anything or anyone (including you) at www.googlism.com. (Unfortunately Google does not know much about me yet - or so it says. Probably a good thing!)

3. Enter an airplane's tail number in the Google search box to find out the plane's service history. (Yeah, I was awake all night wondering about this!)

4. Red Sox or Yankees? Heaven or hell? Pen or sword? Which one gets more Google hits? Find out this and much more at www.googlefight.com. (Huh?)

5. Enter a few key ingredients to get many recipes. (Yep - this really works - pretty cool!)
