I am very excited to be bringing you this site on Lewis & Clark and their journey. This has to be one of the nicest history sites I’ve found.

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

The History of Lunchboxes

“There was a time not so long ago that the lunchbox was the ultimate in personal expression. More than a mere carrying case for peanut butter and bologna sandwiches, your lunchbox showed who you were and who you aspired to be.”

That was such a great intro I couldn’t help but share it with you. This site starts the history of the lunchbox in… Continue reading

Early Manuscripts at Oxford University

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Early Manuscripts at Oxford University

This site is really neat, and preserves written history. Old Manuscripts need to be taken care of because if they are handled incorrectly they could disintegrate and history would be lost. Read the “Using this site” and “About” sections for more information on how the site works and how it was established. Here’s a snippet of what they are about: “Between 1995 and… Continue reading

Gamer Dad

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Gamer Dad

I LOVE THIS SITE! How many parents are uninformed about what games their children are playing, what content the games have in them, and what children are learning from the games they play? A lot—it’s sad but true. Even with the rating system it is hard to tell what you should be protecting your child from and what is harmless fun.

Here at this site… Continue reading

Craftster

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

I am utterly in love with this site, and if you do crafts, you will be too. There are two sections to this site “The Forum” and “The Blog”.

Autumn Leaf Scrapbook

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Autumn Leaf Scrapbook

I remember in about seventh grade I had to make a leaf book. That meant trudging around my home town with a book on leaves and finding good specimens to press and save for my book.

Devices of Wonder

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Devices of Wonder

This site has two versions, high speed and low speed. The high speed is definitely worth it. Even if you have to wait due to load times. It is fully animated and will walk you through everything you need to know. Once it loads you choose a device to play with and the fun begins. My favorites were Antonio Diavolo the Acrobat, Magic… Continue reading

A Spoon Further

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

A Spoon Further

I loved this site and wished that there were still contest going on like this. Contests that challenge an artist’s creativity, but for now the pictures will have to do. Basically this is what the contest was about:

“The aluminum spoons were handed out to the participants of this cultural event on October, 1 1998 in Yekaterinburg’s Artists’ Club. 14 jewelers were present there… Continue reading

Mount St. Helens VolcanoCam

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Remember when Mount St. Helens erupted? I don’t. The eruption everyone remembers from 1980 is before my time, so I wanted to check into this volcano. I found the Mount St. Helens Volcano Cam. This Web Cam is updated every five minutes with a static image (meaning there isn’t live feed, just a picture.) But don’t try to view at night or you’ll get a black screen—this is for daylight… Continue reading
