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.
The real dog that was mo-capped for this new game is an actual member (retired) of the Navy SEAL K9 squad, who was photographed from every angle in super high res, which accounts for the in-game facial scars and ear tattoo.
The character comes with its own artificial intelligence and seems like it will play a notable role in the game as a true part of the squad, who sniffs out dangers and aids the team .. just like they do in real life as a SEAL.
A Dallas group that started last year is now coming Houston to place flags on veteran's graves for Memorial Day.
Flags for Fallen Vets was created by Bob Fussner, a former marine. Last year his group joined forces with over a thousand volunteers and placed over 26,000 flags at DFW National Cemetery in Dallas.
Fussner says the tremendous support has allowed them to expand to Houston, this year. So far over 2,400 volunteers have signed up to place the 65,000 flags needed at Houston National Cemetery.
Fussner has a very noble goal to eventually expand so they can cover all five national cemeteries in Texas!!
You can help this effort succeed .. Flags for Fallen Vets is a non-profit that purchases the flags and organizes the volunteers ... If you want to donate or volunteer visit this website.

When you're a kid, school being cancelled is pretty much the greatest thing you can possibly fathom. Growing up in Orchard Park NY, we LOVED to get snow days and would be glued to the radio every winter morning we even thought there was a chance we'd get off waiting to hear our school district called out for cancellation.
Which is why this video is so mean AND so great at the same time.
Some bus driver decided to prank a bunch of students by stopping the bus, and announcing that a water main broke at the school, and they'd all get to go home.
Then after they'd sufficiently screamed their faces off and high-fived each other . . . he told them it was an April Fools' Day prank. For some reason, the video just found its way on to YouTube.
