Obviously we're thrilled to be included in this list of "Fab 5: Sites that make us smarter," along with some heavy hitters like the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian sites (love them too!). The CIA World Factbook is an amazing, amazing site and one we reference a lot. Check them out, and also check out www.dotcomsformoms.com, written by Rita Mauceri, who helps put information for moms at your fingertips quickly - something we like to do around here as well!

Some 41 million swine flu vaccines have been shipped, but that may not mean it's been easy for you to find one. We've talked to plenty of people who have hit the phones or driven many miles to find the shot.
On the same day the company announced it would offer free WiFi in 47 airports over the holiday season (though not at several major airports like JFK, LGA or SFO), Google announced a tool that helps shot seekers find the vaccine in their area: www.google.com/flushot. They partnered with the Department of Health and Human Services and the American Lung Association to build the tool.
Type in your zip code and Google Maps pulls up a list of places nearby where the shot is still available or was at one point. The latter are marked with "temporarily out of stock." In the search we did, the list also provided phone numbers and times the vaccines were administered. Still phone work, but a little less.
