A friend told us that, while he was in law school, his professor showed the class that it is often more difficult to explain a position in 500 words than in 10,000 words. This one trick pony helps to automatically summarize long pages of text.

You simply copy and paste the text to be summarized into the "Summarizer box", select the number of sentences you wish the text to be reduced to, click "Summarize" and -Shazam -- the summary appears in the results box below.

The summary may not be to your complete liking. For example it may omit an important point you wish to retain. This is easy to fix. Simply edit the results to your liking. Often a simple copy/paste from the original text will do the trick. With a little tweaking you will usually end up with a shorter, more concise masterpiece.

No download required ---it's all web based. And it's not a budget buster - and it's on the house!

This great place is well worth checking out if you enjoy revisiting musical memories. The top 100 songs are listed for every year starting in 1946. One click and any one that you chose is playing for you.

Here are a few that you old-timers may (or may not!) remember from each decade:

The Yellow Rose of Texas 1955
The Twist 1962
For All We Know 1971
Miami Vice Theme 1985
