Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


board game

The Maple Landmark Company of Middlebury, Vermont, specializes in toys and games made specifically out of hardwood which tend to utilize only safe finishes or, in the case of infant toys, no finish at all. The company has received many awards because of its commitments to high quality and safety. It manufactures everything from infant teethers to adult games. This game of Mancala is a good example of the latter, using a natural wood playing board and smooth glass 'stones' as playing pieces.
