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.
Good news and bad news. The good news: Scientists in Japan have figured out a way to keep your kid from getting potentially LIFE-THREATENING pneumonia or bronchitis this winter. The bad news? You have to get them hammered.
The scientists found that a chemical compound in the hops that are used to make beer is extremely effective against respiratory diseases, especially in children. It can also help prevent colds or the flu in adults.
BUT . . . because beers use a relatively low amount of hops, you or your kid would have to drink about THIRTY CANS A DAY to get the virus-fighting effect.
The researchers say the next step would be taking the chemical compound from hops and making it into an injection so, ya know, you could get the positive effects without getting your kids super drunk.
One final note. We probably shouldn't HAVE to say this, but just to be on the safe side . . . don't give your kid 30 beers.
