Here are a few of my fav sites.
For Pet Owners a Must Read:
www.entirelypets.com/toxicfoods.html - this site will tell you all things toxic for your pets. Some will surprise you, like did you know a grape or raisin can kill your dog?
www.truthorfiction.com/ - You know all those e-mails that spread like wildfire but seem a bit too unbelievable?! ie; 'a special new spider that waits to attack you from underneath toilet seats'... or 'watch out for needles on gas pump handles'! Well this site will clue you in as to whether they are Truth or Fiction. I always go there now before forwarding any email to friends that way none of us look foolish :)
www.gardenersnet.com/ - Another must-log-onto site for gardeners. Any query you may have can most likely be answered here.
imdb.com/ - Okay how many times have you been chatting w/someone and either you or they are trying to remember; the name of an actor, what movie they were in, who directed a picture, or even who did the soundtrack. This site will instantaneously answer all those questions and more. Also a great cheat site to prepare for an upcoming game of Scene It!!
www.letssaythanks.com/ Really great way, and super fast too, to say thank you to our troops. Just log on, pick a card to send and a message to include and Xerox will send the card to a soldier absolutely FREE!!! After all it wouldn't be home of the free without the brave; let's thank the troops for thier incredible bravery and show how much we appreciate them and thier sacrifices.
I don't care that what this man is doing is technically illegal. I think he's awesome and is my hero of the day!!
92-year-old Hyman Strachman is a World War Two veteran who lives in Long Island, and he's devoted the last 10 years to supporting the troops.
Each month, he sends out thousands of bootleg DVDs of movies currently in theaters, to troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
He's been doing it since 2004, and he's sent out at least 300,000 movies over that time . . . all for free. He even covers the postage, which is about $11 for a box of movies. He's spent about $30,000 of his own money sending DVDs to the troops.
Sure, it's against the law, but Hyman doesn't care. He said, quote, "It's not the right thing to do, but I did it."
