A few of my favorite 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?
Check to see if something on the Internet is true or not:
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!!

Just before his death, JIMI HENDRIX was planning on recording with MILES DAVIS. Their sessions were also going to include jazz musician TONY WILLIAMS.
And this "super group" could've had one more piece: PAUL MCCARTNEY.
In 1969 . . . when Paul was still with THE BEATLES . . . Jimi, Miles and Tony sent him a telegram that said, quote, "We are recording an LP together this weekend in New York. How about coming in to play bass? Call Alan Douglas."
Paul didn't make the recording session, and it's unclear if he even received the telegram. An assistant replied on his behalf . . . and said that Paul was away on vacation, and wasn't expected back for two weeks.
It's also unclear whether or not that recording session took place at all. In his autobiography, Miles said that he and Hendrix jammed at his apartment, but they didn't get into the recording studio.
The telegram was sent in October of 1969. The Beatles' break-up was officially announced in April of 1970 . . . and Jimi died five months later, in September.
(The cable includes some typos, including the spelling of Alan's first name.)
