I Make Pots

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

Well, if you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a rather crafty kind of person. I crochet, make soap, paint (badly), cook, scrapbook, etc. One thing I’ve always wanted to learn to do was pottery.

Treasure Joe

Treasure Joe

Welcome to Treasure Joe, an interesting site that explores the history of mining, ghost towns and other subjects like metal detecting, gold panning and coin shooting. What lured me into this site was actually the metal detecting. That has always been one of my dad’s favorite past times. As a kid, he’d take me down to the beach and we’d search for treasures with a metal detector… Continue reading

How To Clean Anything

How To Clean Anything

That’s right, our minds have all turned to Spring cleaning. It’s getting warmer, or if you live in Ohio like me, rainier. It’s rained constantly for about a week now. At least that probably means Spring is here to stay though!

MooTube

Live 365

Pandora is wonderful when I have time to sit in front of the computer and rate songs, but I started thinking about all those times I wanted music, but didn’t want to rate the songs.

Junk Store Cameras

Friday, May 12th, 2006

Have you ever been in a junk store and see a pile of old cameras for sale? Or, maybe even a box that looks like it should be something, but you just don’t know what it is. You ask and you’re told that it is an old camera. Well, I’ve done both, so I was really excited when this site was submitted to me.

The site is pretty easy to… Continue reading

Notes From the Road

Gas Prices

I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumor that gas prices are going to be well over $3.00 a gallon by this summer. Yikes! With that kind of price, you have to shop around in your local area to find the best price, right? You can’t just settle for the highest.

Unusual Phobias

Friday, April 28th, 2006

Unusual Phobias

I’ve brought you sites devoted to phobias before, but not like this one. These phobias are not psychologically recognized, but after looking at the list and the number of submissions, some of them definitely should be.
