Yearbook Yourself

Friday, November 27th, 2009

I was not expecting to have as much fun on this site as I did. My cousin posted a couple of these Yearbook Yourself photos of herself and her mom. So out of curiosity I decided to try it out.

Then I couldn’t stop, I made one photo after another, and had a great time doing it! It was amazing how different you can make yourself look. You can go… Continue reading

Disapproving Rabbits

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

Every now and then I just need something cute in my life to cheer me up. Disapproving Rabbits certainly delivers the cuteness! The best way I can think of to describe them is to tell you to think of them like LOLcats only with disapproving serious faced bunnies with funny captions!

The page is setup blog style so all you have to do is scroll down the… Continue reading

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

It’s coming up on the holidays and lots of people are going to be having guests over. If you’re one of those people who like to invite people over for a good holiday dinner, (as opposed to me who likes to go eat a good holiday dinner) do you remember to ask your guests if they have any food allergies? Nut allergies are one of the biggest ones you can… Continue reading

Macaroni and Cheese Recipes

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

One of my friends got married last summer, and has been trying to teach herself to cook. The other day she called me up and asked me if I had a good recipe for making macaroni and cheese. While I do have a good recipe, the instructions are a pinch of this, and a dash of that – not a problem for me since I grew up making it with… Continue reading

Replicat

Monday, November 16th, 2009

This is a super fun, highly addictive game which of course means I have to share it with all of you!

The object of the game is to collect as many planets as you can without running into any of your replicas; as time passes more and more replicas spawn for you to avoid until a portal spawns to whisk you off to the next level.

The quicker you collect… Continue reading

Top Ten Doctored Photos

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Time brings you their top ten doctored photos throughout history. I found these to be fascinating! I had no idea that people doctored pictures as far back as the Civil War. Apparently photographers have always had a few tricks up their sleeves.

You’ll start out on the image from the Civil War, when you click the next button to continue forward you’ll see the un-doctored version of the image.

The… Continue reading

This site provides an amazing slideshow of how your brain works and then how

Drop-io

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

This site saved my life during a group project I had to do for one of my classes where we had to make a group presentation. It was impossible to make our schedules coincide so instead I went hunting for a solution. We were able to drop off each of our portions of the presentation so that I could put it together.
 
I recommend that you start… Continue reading

Encyclopedia of Life

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

This is not your average encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia of Life is dedicated to collecting information about the known 1.8 million species, as well as, collecting data about any new species found.

My favorite way to get started is to just click one of the images on the scrolling explore bar. It is awesome to just dive in and explore a new species, or a species I’m curious about.

But if… Continue reading

The amazing thing about Flickr is the absolute gems you can find on there! The Library of Congress has posted some great photographs of Abraham Lincoln that anyone can view!

Kid’s Audio Books

Friday, October 16th, 2009

When I was growing up audio books were a real treat to me. I can remember checking them out of our local library, and being sad when I’d gone through all the ones available at our branch. With the arrival of MP3’s on the scene, audio books became even easier to obtain and listen too. Here at Kid’s Audio Books you’ll find over 300 titles to download and enjoy with… Continue reading

Learn CPR

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

I vaguely remember learning CPR in junior high. What I remember most was that I did not want to put my mouth on the plastic dummy whose life I was trying to save. CPR is probably the one first aid technique you really need to know, though and this site does an amazing job of demonstrating how it is done. They use videos, examples, information, and even fun facts to… Continue reading
