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.
On Friday, 32-year-old Ulanda Williams from Queens, New York . . . who weighs 400 pounds was in Manhattan, waiting for a bus, and huddling against a wall to shelter herself from the rain. And suddenly, the sidewalk GAVE OUT.
Turns out she was standing on a piece of sidewalk that was built over a restaurant's basement. The basement didn't have a ceiling in that area, just the sidewalk tile. So when it cracked, she fell 7 feet STRAIGHT DOWN into the basement.
The fire department had to use a CRANE and a CARGO NET to get her out. A fire department official told reporters, quote, "She is a very large person, but we were able to secure her and stabilize her and lift her out of the hole."
Fortunately, Ulanda only suffered a broken arm. And she says her girth SAVED HER LIFE. Doctors told her a thinner woman could've DIED in that fall.
