Mister Rogers suggested to me from Google News for you

Google suggests Mister Rogers to me

People freak out about Google following you around and making creepy suggestions. But here is a story about a very nice suggestion from Google.

Geocities: homepage

I put my 1997 geocities site back up! (Click HERE to visit) All in it’s animated gif, ugly design glory, this is my first website I made.
