Useful Google Sites

Do you find it difficult to get a fast and permanent music link to you web pages? Or do you find it difficult to find a perfect web room to store your own music and link it to your pages? Now Google Sites can solve all your problems! Use your Google account (if you have one or just apply one) to apply a Google site, a platform to build your own website! However, you can use it just as your web disk. Upload your files, e.g. music, pictures, documents, etc. Then you will get the files' address and link them to your blog or other pages. Your friends can enjoy the music while they browse the page or download the files. The music your are listening to now is stored in my Google site. With Google's best service, you don't have to worry about the speed or unavailability. Have a try!

After The Thick Fog

The day goes colder and colder. It' s another freezing morning and I've seen the thickest fog since I came to Beijing. The fog didn't disperse until 10:30! What surprised me was the beautiful ice crystal freezing on the grass and leaves,shining in the soft winter sunshine.
