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 hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family.
I've got the results from a survey on the BURNING QUESTIONS of Thanksgiving.
What are you most thankful for this year? The top answer was family, and health came in second. God came in third, and friends came in fourth.
Is Thanksgiving the most important non-religious holiday of the year? Four out of five people say YES. So . . . . . sorry to our Veterans, the Independence of our Country, Christopher Columbus, and Martin Luther King Jr. ;)
What Thanksgiving food is a must-have? Turkey was rated the most "must-have" food. Stuffing came in second, mashed potatoes were third, pie was fourth, and yams or sweet potatoes were fifth.
What food makes the best leftovers? A turkey sandwich came in first. Pie was second, and stuffing was third.
Will you watch football on Thanksgiving? 60% of people say yes.
In addition to being thankful for my family, health and happiness, I am very thankful I have a job doing what a truly love and have gotten to 'play' for a living the last 21 years!
I'm also thankful we get to watch the Texans this Thanksgiving. What a treat. And yes that means I will be one of the 60% watching football today. GO TEXANS!!!
I'm also thankful for our Troops overseas and here at home protecting and serving around the clock each and every day of the year. Thank you to all who serve in all branches of The United States Military.
Here's a great write up on what our troops in Afghanistan are doing today:
