that appears to be changing!!

Dave, I'm just reaching out to let the East Tennessee DX Association know your collection of Morse Code resources were a big help to my daughter Corrine and a 'Famous Inventors and Inventions' project she's working on for her technology class. Her teacher thought it would be fun for the class to learn about a new invention or technology each week that changed history. The students are then required write a short paper about what they learned, and how it impacted society. It's been fun for both of us!
Corrine's teacher assigned a lesson on the telegraph and Morse Code! Your links page led us to some great websites to check out, so Corrine and I wanted to make sure we thanked you!!
I was also hoping you could add a suggestion from Corrine to your page? She found this timeline of the telegraph that I loved. It was neat to see how Morse Code and continuous wave changed the history of communication. This is it.... https://www.emissary.ai/telegraph-morse-code-text/
Can you add it on here? http://www.etdxa.org/links.htm
I'd love to show Corrine and her teacher! It's always nice getting some recognition for a job well done, and perhaps Corrine will even get some extra credit? Brownie points would be nice with the next round of report cards coming out soon!
The project is due on Thursday, if you get a chance to include it by then! I know life can be hectic though, so if not, whenever you get a chance to add it is great! I really appreciate it!
