Spirograph

Friday, March 3rd, 2006

The spirograph toy was one of my favorites growing up. I never had the joy of owning one and had to use the ones at my friend’s houses, but it was really one of my favorites. Relive your fond memories of spirograph with this site.

The way this applet works is that you modify the sliding bars on the side to whatever you want and this affects the picture that… Continue reading

The Seven Wonders: Other Monuments

The Seven Wonders: Other Monuments

Most of the Seven Wonders of the world are lost to us now, with the Pyramid of Giza being the only one left standing. The others were ravaged by nature, time and even man. There are people out there who believe that new wonders should be chosen to replace those that have long since disappeared.

While I don’t think we should forget them… Continue reading

DC Flyby

Friday, February 24th, 2006

DC Flyby

This site is so cool. I always wanted to visit Washington D.C. when I was in school and never had the opportunity. I haven’t had the opportunity since then either. Maybe I’ll go with my mom and her school this year.

But until I can get there, I have this site which is very awesome. You can get a bird’s eye tour of D.C. Use the red… Continue reading

It will automatically start paging through the images by starting at the Milky Way, as described, all the way down to the oak tree’s leaves. Then from the leaves, it… Continue reading

Alaska Volcano Observatory

Friday, February 17th, 2006

Alaska Volcano Observatory

I am fascinated by volcanoes. They are a wonder of nature that man is still trying to understand and predict. It seems like the smallest change in their environment can set them off and that’s so cool.

So, I’m bringing you to the Alaska Volcano Observatory site. They just recently bumped the volcano at Augustine up to Orange. What does that mean? Well, they assign the… Continue reading

Anne Frank the Writer

Friday, February 17th, 2006

Anne Frank the Writer

Most of us have read The Diary of Anne Frank. I know that for at least my generation, it was part of the curriculum for reading when I attended school. (If you haven’t read it, I fully recommend that you do). To me it is amazing how well she formed her thoughts and penned them down

NBC Olympics

Name My Tune

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

Name My Tune

I can’t stand to have a song stuck in my head! Especially if all I have is just the tune and not the lyrics, or if I can only remember a few of the words to a song. That makes it really hard to do a lyric search to find it, but I need not fear that ever again because I’ve found Name My Tune, and… Continue reading

Foodie View

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

Foodie View

When you’re cooking, do you ever feel like you’ve slipped into a rut? I know I sure do. It seems like I make meatloaf, taco bake, chicken pesto and pasta, chicken and corn and potato casserole every week. I’m really dying to get out of my cooking rut, so I went hunting for a good recipe search engine. I found Food View and it met all my… Continue reading

The Mile Wall

Friday, February 3rd, 2006

The Mile Wall

This site is strangely fun. Travis Smith, a college student, had this idea to make an Internet page that would span one mile. To do this, he is selling space on the wall for a lifetime, for just one dollar. I’m not recommending that you pay him a dollar, but I am recommending that you check out this site. It is a fresh and unique concept.… Continue reading

Just copy the long link, paste it into the blank… Continue reading

Fun Copter

Fun Copter

First of all, a word of warning! This site is very addictive. Click to start navigating your helicopter through the course. There are obstacles to be avoided by flying either higher or lower, but you also have to be careful to avoid crashing into the ceiling or the floor.

Making of a Brick

I’m not talking about bricks that you use to build houses, but I’m talking about Legos! You need to have Macromedia Flash installed to view this presentation, and believe me, it is well worth it. Learn how Legos are made from start to finish. It’s rather fascinating.
