Mom Ready

Today’s cool site is an awesome online parenting magazine! While I’m not a parent (unless you count my pets that are too smart for their own good), there were great tips here for me too. I found some on organizing and getting things done, as well as, some nifty crafts!

Mountain Sanatorium

Friday, March 30th, 2007

This site is a journey into the Essex Mountain Sanatorium, from when it was built to its demolition.

You can follow these buildings’ journey, superstition, lore and learn some factual information as their stories are unraveled. I recommend starting with the prologue, which explains the author’s reasoning for the site. It really gets your journey started on the right foot.

From there, I’d follow the links at the bottom of… Continue reading

Abondoned

Abandoned

I have always had a strong connection to abandoned buildings. They make my imagination click into overdrive. I wonder how they’ve come to be abandoned, who lived, worked, laughed, loved, cried and even died there. If you ask me, buildings have a story all their own to tell.

So, you can guess that I was overjoyed when I found this site. The site is a gallery of photos… Continue reading

JigZone

JigZone

I have to confess something. I adore solving jigsaw puzzles. Unfortunately, it isn’t something I can really do anymore. With five pets who think it’s their job to either steal the puzzle pieces or plop right down in the middle of it, it’s a little difficult!

But, now all that has changed, because I can now do puzzles online at JigZone. There are no pieces to get stolen… Continue reading

Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Want to learn more about birds? Learning all about hummingbirds a few days ago got me interested in the other birds out there as well. This all stems back to my childhood memories of my dad pointing out different birds to me too. He taught me how to spot a robin, a blue jay, a cardinal, starlings, sparrows and even a woodpecker. Navigation is really… Continue reading

Put-in-Bay Photos

Put-in-Bay Photos

Today, I stepped outside and it was simply gorgeous. The sun was shining, the air was warm and there was just a slight breeze. It made me recall how the weather was when my family and I would visit Put-in-Bay when I was younger. I’ve been there on school trips and with my friends too. It also made me remember the ice cream store there, so when… Continue reading

I also really loved the fact that they made the Help/FAQ section very easy to find. You’ll notice it is mentioned in the second paragraph of the introduction, as well as… Continue reading
