   Online is a column which appears in the Peterborough Examiner three Thursdays per month.

I am a retired Secondary School teacher who lives in Peterborough, Ontario.

The column is based on the Internet and ranges from useful sites to controversial or topical items of interest to those who use the Internet casually or intensely. 

The column has appeared regularly since 1998, with the only exceptions being major holidays.

       I'm always looking to expand the horizons of the column.
