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.
Do you believe in ghosts?
Downtown residents in NYC are reporting that when it gets windy, the new One World Trade Center building emits eerie sounds.
The first reports of the sound date back to Hurricane Sandy.
It's probably something to do with how much metal was used or the type of material .. and how that is reacting with wind .. but still creepy.
Holy no freakin' way .. this is so wrong and so crazy. Wow .. and unfortunately for this guy he's married to crazy pants!
Ok some of these are a stretch .. haha literally. But still fun to watch and waste time at work ;)
There's a video making the rounds of some French guy destroying his apartment with a SLEDGEHAMMER after his landlord refused to refund his security deposit of $2,500.
Obviously, he'll probably be on the hook for even MORE money now. Um ... yeah bet dating that guy is a roller coaster of madness you'd want off quick.

The holidays are full of dinners .. dinner parties .. gatherings .. so here's a guide to keep things from getting awkward. Or, if you're in the mood to entertain yourself and alienate others, here's a way to help you make EVERY dinner awkward. I kind of think it's funny we even need to see a list like this .. but then again I've been shocked by some conversations I've over heard in line at the grocery store where people are surrounded by strangers .. so guess it's a sign of the times.
According to a new survey of 1,000 Americans, here are the top 12 conversation topics you SHOULDN'T bring up at dinner . . .
1. Your sex life, or anyone else's. 59% of people picked it as the MOST taboo topic.
