Today the World Wide Web turns 25 years old! The internet has become an intricate part of our lives.

Who came up with this great idea? No, it wasn't Al Gore!

Tim Berners-Lee at the CERN lab in Switzerland, outlining a way to easily access files on linked computers, paved the way for a global phenomenon that has touched the lives of billions of people.

He presented the paper on March 12, 1989, which history has marked as the birthday of the Web.

A lot of us are on the internet because of work, Hello! Like me right now, but what about on your free time? I love the fact that it's like a library at my finger tips. Checking the news, weather plus facts and information. I check my Facebook a few times through out the day too. How did we live without it?

I've gone 2 maybe 3 days without it when my husband and I are camping or if I'm on vacation. I guess I could go longer, but then that feeling of being totally out of touch with what is going on in the world "news wise" sets in and I don't care for that feeling!
