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:
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.

Dennis Farina, a former police officer in real life who went on to star as one on "Law & Order," died today at the age of 69, according to his publicist.
In addition to starring in "Law & Order" Farina appeared in many films including one of my all time favorites ''Saving Private Ryan" .. plus "Snatch", "Get Shorty" and many many more. He was still working too as he was currently filming a new movie called "Lucky Stiff".
Here's a little clip of him talking about how he celebrated his Leap Day Birthday
This video may NOT BE SAFE FOR WORK ... lots of F'bombs so be careful. But for those of us who love that word and Dennis, it's a great tribute .. from Snatch:
