Denise - 

Create a cookie, save it, load it as a cookie jar (using cookielib), create 
an URLopener using urllib2 that uses the cookiejar, do your thing. Remember 
that sending a cookie/receiving a cookie client side is initiated by the 
server, so you just have to have the cookie present. 

The technical steps you'll have to puzzle out by reading docs for the two 
above mentioned libraries, but it shouldn't take you too long with the 
interactive prompt and an open web-browser to get the hang of it. 

Good luck.
