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!!
Thank 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!!!

An 11-year-old boy is embarking on his second tribute to a dying dog in just one year.
Cole Hein lost his first service dog, Bingo, last fall. The dog was specially trained to alert his parents when Hein would stop breathing due to a condition that makes that happen when he gets sick. His service dog, Bingo, would bark to wake up his mom, Mandi. When Bingo got sick and died last year, Hein created a Lick It List for the dog and asked people to send in treats.
Well now his second service dog has developed a rare condition and she too is dying. Cole's Mom Mandi said the dog dutifully stays beside Hein’s side, despite her illness.
“She still alerts me by nudging, pacing,” said Mandi.
Hein wants to create a second lick it list, but this time to make a rock-garden tribute to Roxy.
“I used to call Roxy my rock, so I’m building her a rock garden,” he explained. “[It’s] for people to send me a rock with their pets or animals they know who are still living, have passed [or] are sick.”
Hein is asking people to write the name of their pet on a rock so he can put it in the garden. Click below for more if you'd like to send a rock and watch their story here:
