OK, so busy me...

OK so Christmas is over, Happy New Year!
New Year Screen Savers:
Again, as always, when looking for wallpapers and screen savers, stay away from
screensavers.com and funmunch.com as they do try to infect your computer with
I'm not into the so called animated wallpapers, also known as 3D wallpapers
mainly because they're
distracting when you are trying to do some work on your PC. Yes, of course,
they're candy for your
eyes and there are some pretty good ones out there. But after a few hours on my
PC, I always go
back to my favorite pictures on webshots. By the way, the pictures you collected
can easily be
transferred to webshots.
Truly Hillary Gallery
You really want Hillary Clinton for President? I don't think so. Why? Scroll
down and let these
unflattering pictures of her speak for themselves. Um...President Hillary
Clinton? Brrrr, a very scary
It goes without saying that most of North Carolina and beyond are under severe
drought conditions and
the media has reported that there is a town in Tennessee has already ran out of

have thousand of
reviewed science links on everything from astronomy to zoology.
11/04/07 - This Day's notable birthday - Walter Cronkite (1916)
"Uncle Walter" served as CBS Evening News anchor from 1962 to 1981, during which
opinion polls found him to be the "most trusted man in America." He reported the
events of the era so effectively that his image and voice are closely associated
with the Cuban
missile crisis, the Vietnam War, the Apollo 11 Moon landing, and the Watergate
experienced a rare loss of composure during one 1963 broadcast when he was
forced to announce
This is the "oops list...enjoy...
Oops, ouch, wow, gee, duh, golly, huh? Pictures of mostly aircraft mishaps. Few
you may have seen
over the years. And finally, I have proof of why I don't fly. Go to this oops
list site and find/click on

Museum of Hoaxes (home page)
Photography over the years has proven to be a favorite tool of hoaxers since its
invention...and still is
in the current and as well as the future internet era. This site showcases some
fakes arranged in chronological order from the Civil War to the present.
Remember the white bearded
man holding the biggest (white) cat you ever saw? I bet you believed that to be true.

Horrorween or is it
It's the beginning of the holiday season...some folks will say it's the

stroll down the
caverns of blood, get a
treat from Ben & Jerry's
Halloween Experience, go to
trick or treats.com
download some creepy stuff. Check out
My Halloween Stuff and check out
the new and improved
haunted house.com and while
you are there, download

least, my favorite,
Free Halloween Screen

site) posted above.
This month's Websites
of the Month are selected in remembrance to those who lost their lives
on September 11, 2001 and in celebration of the men and women who are fighting
9/11/01, Six Years Ago
The Nation was enraged, we were engrossed to television for a week, e-mail boxes
were filled with
pictures and editorial cartoons...
Pictures and Editorial Cartoons
In remembrance of the victims, the firefighters, and the solders, we present
this site which contains a
huge collection of patriotic pictures, editorial cartoons, some of which you may
have seen and some
of which you may not have seen.
CNN - America Remembers
CNN has a timeline of the events that occurred on this eventful day...
Rare pictures from 9/11 can be found
our own website.
Sign City Television
Remember in the 1980s a Deaf cable channel called the
Silent Network? An e-mail newsletter that
some of you received featured
which might be the forerunner of a new cable channel
for the Deaf in the future. The website is very informative and what surprised
me is the man who
created this website is the same man who created the original Silent Network on
to keep an eye on.
Here's a very interesting site! As they say: "They provide the best listings of
deaf community and
interpreter related events throughout the nation as well as important news
related to the deaf
community and much more!" This site has been improved since I last visited it
about 2-3 years ago
and now it warrants a mention on this page. By the way, the website's URL is
really easy to
pronounce...say...oh so easy.com.
Welcome to Sea and Sky
Long time readers of this page knows that my interest is cosmic so I offer
you folks another interesting
website devoted to the sky as well as the sea. At the lower half of the
homepage, there is an index of
interesting pages of which will make your clicking choices easier.
Speed Trap Exchange
You speed, I speed, we all have a need for speed...but watch out for speed
traps! JS submitted this site
and of course as travelers, we don't need tickets. This site says: it is where
visitors can post what they
believe are speed traps. The National Motorists Association cannot attest to the
validity of these listings
and that entries are individual postings from private individuals who believe a
speed trap is in effect in
these locations. Speeders beware! Click below to find your state's listings.

Happy Anniversary, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
43 years ago, the Beatles arrived in New York for the Ed Sullivan Show.
Three years later, they
re-invented themselves by locking themselves in a studio for four months and
produced the most
important rock & roll album ever made. This month makes the 40th Anniversary of
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, which also ushered in an unforgettable
season of hope,
upheaval and achievement: the late 1960s and, in particular, 1967's Summer of

ABC News' website has undergone a major overhaul. Although there was nothing
wrong with the old
website, the new website continues the archiving of older news articles but in a
better orderly fashion. I
say go visit the new site. It might take a few extra minutes to get used to
navigating the site but I like it

Nowadays, everyone is going green, recycling every throwaway they can think of.
This site combines
recycling information into one location which is neat because in the past when I
wanted to find a
for the electronics and old an refrigerator I wanted to get rid of, it took me 2
days of part-time
to find the recycler's local addresses. I've been green for years, recycling
throwaways like, plastic
bottles, plastic bags from retail and food stores, aluminum cans, newspaper,
even batteries from
flash lights, remote controls and let us not forget... hearing aid batteries.

Whilst we were growing up in high school, the latest in "videos" was actually
the network news'
film/tape clips, or even network specials. Nowadays, in the insane world of
instant news courtesy of
the internet, you can watch the latest videos from around the world...and they
are NOT coming from
your favorite news network.
Lost the Manual Guide to your VCR? DVD player? Digital camera? Well, you can now
quit looking for it
because it is now online. The original
WOM site is now offline and I
saw this on the news and after
browsing around, I found this site to be just about the same or better than the
Gas Stations from all around the country
I was doing some research in another section of this site and found a pictorial
section that brought
back memories of yore. This website is actually a Harley-Davison motorcycle fan
site and apparently
their members, during their travels of the back roads of the good ole US of A,
collected pictures of old
gas stations and posted them on their site. It was interesting to see the old
logos of a bygone era.
Esso, Mobile, Sinclair, and to see other logos that has not changed over the
years. At the bottom of
this page, there is a link to another page within this site that has pictures of

Mighty Optical Illusions
Fans of this page knows that I have featured several optical illusions sites in
the past. This site, which
is relatively new, has pages and pages of optical illusions, some you may have
seen, and of course,
some new ones that you have not seen. There is a listing on the right named,
Categories, containing all kinds of illusions. In the category, 3D Chalk
Drawings, I discovered several
pictures in the sub-categories, 3D Sidewalk Drawings no. 2, 3, and 4 that had
been sent from Texas to
MamaPat, who in turn showed to me.
stuff on my cat .com
You got cats? I got cats! Always had cats. Some of our Classmates got cat(s). Do
you put stuff on
your cats? I rarely do, but only when the wife ain't around. This website has
cute pictures of stuff
on cats. Each week they have a contest that revolves around a certain theme. Cat
lovers put stuff
on their cats and submit pictures. Site visitors vote on their favorites and the
winner receives a
random prize. Nope, I don't take pictures of stuff on my cats, but I enjoy
looking at pictures of
stuff on cats.
A while back, JS (I think) sent me some interesting military photos from this
site. The top section
of this site has beautiful, strange, odd, and funny pictures from NASA. Other
sections has pictures
of WWII classic aircraft, hilarious pictures of our fighting men and women, and
posted in the last few days. Oh, yeah! Do chick out the sidebar under the header
" Special Images
and Pictures", I spent 6 hours going through these pictures. I did not check out
the rest of this
section knowing I'll kill the rest of the evening going through those. Anyhow,
around, I discovered that this site is a member of a family of websites, one of
which was also
featured as a WOTM in September of 2004,

same."..."This nicely designed
site uses text and animation to explain everything from how sound is recorded to
works."..."Visit this site to reflect on America's past and present. Revisit

You can even
explore the science of baseball, skateboarding, hockey and cycling...To me, this
site is just as awe
inspiring as my visit to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago as a kid.
