The Calligraphic World of Mi Fu’s Art

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

What I love about this site is that it is rich in history as well as art. You can choose the Flash Version or the HTML Version, but can only get an English translation in the flash version. The flash version is also nicely put together, and interactive.

If you’d like to turn the music off you can do so at the bottom of the page. Upon entering your… Continue reading

It’s fair to say that I’m having a love affair with color. It started when I was a little girl and discovered neon green. My love have green has morphed from neon green to lime green to true grass green. And then there’s purple, red, ivory, yeah it isn’t wise to get me started.

I was so happy to have stumbled across this site. COLOURlovers is devoted to color… Continue reading

Friday, May 15th, 2009

I have definitely inherited my family’s love of crossword puzzles. My grandfather does them, my mother does them, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a new crossword puzzle. But sometimes I just get stuck on a word, and while I try to solve around it still can’t puzzle it out. Well if that happens to you too then you are going to love this site.

Welcome… Continue reading

Perfect Portions

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

I’ve gone from cooking for five people to cooking for two, and let me tell you, it is hard to adjust the amount you’re cooking to get the right portion size. It took me month to figure out that instead of a whole box of pasta I only needed about a third of it for two of us. Mind you, I didn’t keep cooking a whole box; I went down… Continue reading

Love is Respect

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

This is a cause I can really get behind. As a survivor of dating abuse, I know now how much this sort of site could have helped me when I was in the midst of it. Being a teenager is a hard time – you have all those hormones rushing, peer pressure, and you can easily find yourself in a tough spot.

But now there’s help, this site can… Continue reading

Trek Tech

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Excuse me while I nerd out for today. Thursday marks the release of the Star Trek movie reboot, and while I’m a mite apprehensive about the film itself, I think that the plethora of tech articles out there that showcase Trek technology are just too good to pass up! It’s amazing how much real life has grown to emulate science fiction, and Gene Roddenberry’s classic series, one that has… Continue reading

Open With

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

You know the one thing that can drive me absolutely batty in no time flat is downloading something, and then after the wait, I go to open and it tells me that it doesn’t know what program to open it with.

Drives me bonkers, every single time it happens.

Well no more, because now I have this site! Not only is it free, but they make it so… Continue reading

Book Glutton

Friday, May 1st, 2009

I am an avid reader. I just wish there were more hours in a day available for reading! But what I love more than just reading, is sharing my thoughts about what I’ve read. Sharing a reading experience with other people is awesome, because it allows you to see the material you just read through someone else’s perspective. It can be eye-opening and thought provoking.

Here at Book Glutton… Continue reading

Tartan maker

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

I thought this was a fun little site, and couldn’t wait to share it with you. The application is super easy to use too! There are four slider bars, three color squares, and two styles of orientation.

I like to start off with the color squares. Click the color square next to each band slider and select the color you want that band of color to be. The square… Continue reading


Tuesday, April 28th, 2009


This is an interesting art site. Here you can view art, download free art, find art to purchase affordably (you never know what may move you), talk about art, and even submit art.

I’m always torn about posting art sites, because while they are usually incredible, most artists are selling their work on their site (as well they should). I usually consider it non-commercial enough if you can… Continue reading

Get Goaling

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Do you ever feel like you set a goal for yourself and at first you’re gung ho to get it done and then your enthusiasm peters out and you only get half way there before you quit? I know I do. I’m quite the procrastinator. I’ve been meaning to rake the leaves out of my yard, well since, this fall. It’s now the middle of spring and I’m just waiting… Continue reading

Optical Illusions

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

I adore a good optical illusion, so I was very happy when Steve directed my attention to this site. The site is set up blog style, so all you have to do to navigate it is scroll down the page!

The first image is stellar. A man sitting on a ledge, looking over a road that seems to be going straight downwards, it is certainly one of my favorite images… Continue reading

What it Costs

Monday, April 20th, 2009

Do you ever find that you’re curious as to what things cost? For example: How much would it end up costing you if you filed your taxes late? Or how much does a personal trainer really cost? How much would it cost you to have a professional stager come in to style your house for sale? How much does doggie daycare cost?

These are all questions that you can find… Continue reading
