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!!

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.
UltimateClassicRock.com has put together a list of The Top 10 Supergroups. In theory, these are groups that were formed with members who were already a big deal from their previous work / bands. So, like an all-star team.
Naturally, most of the groups are from the '60s and '70s . . . when this sort of thing would happen. It's pretty rare these days.
Here's the list:
1.) Cream . . . Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker.
2.) Crosby, Stills & Nash (and Young) . . . or as I like to call them CSN-and-sometimes-Y . . . David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash and Neil Young.
3.) The Traveling Wilburys . . . Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.
4.) Bad Company . . . Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke, Mick Ralphs and Boz Burrell.
5.) Emerson, Lake & Palmer . . . Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer.
6.) Derek and the Dominos . . . Eric Clapton, Bobby Whitlock, Carl Radle and Jim Gordon, with special guest Duane Allman.
7.) Asia . . . John Wetton, Steve Howe, Geoff Downes and Carl Palmer.
8.) Blind Faith . . . Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood and Ric Grech.
9.) Journey . . . Neal Schon, Gregg Rolie, Ross Valory and George Tickner.
(Journey is a big stretch here. It's basically a "supergroup" because it was assembled with Neal and Gregg who had been playing with Carlos Santana, and the other two guys were in a group called Frumious Bandersnatch. But the supergroup label doesn't really work, because they didn't become HUGE until singer Steve Perry was brought into the fold, and he was basically an UNKNOWN at the time. Plus, George Tickner was gone by that point.)
10.) Beck, Bogert & Appice . . . Jeff Beck, Tim Bogert and Carmine Appice.
Some recent examples of "supergroups" might be: Chickenfoot, Them Crooked Vultures, Audioslave, and Velvet Revolver.
Since there are some questionable "supergroups" on this list, can you think of one that SHOULD be on it?
Here are the rules: The majority of the band has to have members that were known before the supergroup . . . they have to have released at least one album, so no all-star jams . . .And it can't just be a known musician joining a pre-existing band . . . so no VAN HALEN with SAMMY HAGAR.
OR if you could create your DREAM supergroup, who would be in it? Include a singer, a guitarist, a bassist and a drummer . . . and a keyboardist, if that's how you roll.
