Friends of the Forest
Experience for yourself the special relationship shared by Mother Nature and America's native peoples, one that exists across the continent. American Indians and the Natural World at www. carnegiemuseums.org/ cmnh/ exhibits/ north-south-east-west/ is sponsored by the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. This site depicts the unique ways in which American Indians relate to the world around them. You'll discover how tribal nations of the Great Plains looked to the skies for inspiration and knowledge, and how the Iroquois of the Northeast creatively survived their long, harsh winters. The site contains incredible artwork, photographs and mythology. Keep your eyes open for totem poles, canoes and ceremonial face masks. Answer the call of the wild world web!

Chocolate Paradise From cookies to cake to fudge, it's almost impossible to resist the lure of chocolate. At Exploratorium's Exploring Chocolate Web site, you'll dive into a chocolate lover's fantasy world. Bring a sweet tooth out to www.exploratorium.edu/chocolate. The site takes you from the cacao trees of the Amazon to the specialty chocolate shops of Switzerland and Belgium. You'll go back in time to learn how the Olmecs, Mayans and Aztecs were enjoying this fun food long ago. This site is full of cool multimedia too, including video of a "chocolate party" in the Amazon. We'll see you under the cacao tree!

Ask Amy
Dear Amy: How can I move my bookmarks in Netscape to another computer?--Robert, Denver
Dear Robert: By opening your Bookmarks window in Netscape, you can drag a bookmark or a folder of bookmarks out of the window and onto a floppy disk to save them. If you delete them from Netscape or if you want to add new bookmarks from a floppy disk, just drag them back into the Bookmarks window. Keeping an up-to-date list of bookmarks can be really confusing. There are some utilities available to help you. Search for some at www.download.com.

Dear Amy: Do you think the Internet is dangerous?--Savanna, Winter Haven, Fla.
Dear Savanna: It's true, the Internet definitely has some places that are too adult for kids to visit. Most parents want their kids to experience the freedom of searching the Web, but they are afraid of what they might come across. The latest things are the new kids' browsers SurfMonkey at www.surfmonkey.com and KidDesk at www.riverdeep.net/edmark. These browsers include more controls for parents. SurfMonkey lets kids steer a virtual spaceship to approved Web sites, and KidDesk allows your parents ultimate control by first approving what gets downloaded. (These sites are no longer available.)
