How to Extract Addresses From a List

Sometimes you get an endless list that is composed of addresses, phone numbers, Fax numbers, email addresses. You want to extract only the web addresses from the list that looks like this:

The Marilyn and Marvin Simon JCC
5000 Corporate Woods Dr
Ste 100
Virginia Beach, VA 23462
757-489-1371

Jewish Community Center
Richmond
Weinstein JCC

Richmond, VA 23226
804-288-6091
Fax 804-285-3139

All you have to do is to
1. Copy the whole list to Microsoft Word
2. Select all
3. Go to Tables- Sort [a-z] – click it
4. The list will be sorted from A to Z and your addresses will be in one group under the letter W

Aren't those web site addresses and not email addresses? Well, not a question really, because those are site urls, they are not email addresses.
