Hi, I have pages of news articles that get really long: http://www.magickitchen.com/news/health.html

Can I use jquery or ajax to do something like this?:

It would be great to show the top six articles, then have a Plus sign or a see more button, ad have the rest of the content appear on the same page. I'm learning jquery and ajax,  but I'm not sure yet how to use them in real world applications. So I could use some advice and some examples, if possible. Thanks!

Depending on the amount of data, you might actually consider two approaches:

1. Real lazy-loading
If you really have a lot of items which, in my opinion, is not the case of the page you gave us as an example, then you can create a lazy loading feature like adding a "More" button.
This is like a paged list, meaning that on the server-side you need to have method that receives the page number and page size and gives you the items for that page.
Once you have that, then just append the items to the HTML.

2. Fake lazy-loading
On the other hand, if this is just to make things pretty, then you can just fake this paging mechanism.
You can still have the whole HTML on the page but only show it gradually.

It's your call :)
