Yard Sale Database

Friday, August 4th, 2006

The Paunsaugunt Wildlife Museum

With our wildlife disappearing more and more everyday, there is a museum that is preserving it for future generations to see. Since it’s located in Utah, I can’t just hop in the car and head there, so I have to be content with a computer chair trip there via the Web site.

Hubble Site

I love this site. I keep coming back to it every couple of years and thoroughly exploring it all over again, because it is just so amazing. The last time I brought you this site, I was gaga over the Tonight’s Sky section.

One Across

One Across

Word puzzles have always been something I’ve loved. I think it was a trait I inherited from my mother. She still pours over the crossword puzzle in the newspaper and you can find a plethora of word puzzle books on her bookshelves. It’s really annoying when I do a crossword and only miss a few of the answers, not to mention frustrating.

Here at One Across, you… Continue reading

First of all, this… Continue reading

Best Friends Animal Shelter

So, by now you all know I’m an avid pet lover. I have three cats and two loveable dogs. (The cats would qualify as lovable if they didn’t have evil moments!) But, one of our cats has been going through a territory issue and doing things it shouldn’t have been doing all over my house. Which, to be honest, hasn’t thrilled me. My roommate… Continue reading

Wanna Spell?

Friday, July 14th, 2006

Wanna Spell?

This site reminds me of those magnetic letters that parents buy for their children and put on the refrigerator so the kids can spend countless hours arranging and rearranging the letters into words. It would make a great way for kids to practice spelling, that’s for sure. But, even as an adult, I really enjoyed this site.

Start your trip by selecting the language of your choice… Continue reading
