You might not have noticed but there is a big presidential election
going on. Mostly it makes me crazy because the players are just "DISSING"
the other side rather than telling me what they want to do to make this a
better world. One of the things I would like more of is OPEN DEBATE
on all the issues, but they players and by their representatives.
This website wants that too...

WOW what a fun thing to do...this is going to catch on big and you
heard it here first! It's called LETTERBOXING and already there are
letterboxes spread through out the world. Short story is that you
hide a box with a rubber stamp in it and a blank diary type book.
Folks follow clues to find your box, use your stamp to fill in their book,
AND then stamp their stamp in your book. It's like collecting
autographs but you will never have to cross some of them out because they
got into trouble like our "sports heroes" seem to do. Check it
out...get involved! FIND MY
BOX IF YOU CAN

Today's website is here for 2 reasons. Do you know what a BLOG
is? It's short for weBLOG...a diary of sorts that folks keep on the
internet for everyone to see. There are now thousands of such "blogs"
and some are most interesting, as the years go by, I'm sure that
sociologists will analyze the daylights out of them. But in the mean
time it's just for FUN. This particular BLOG is by a friend of mine
in Northern Minnesota. I think you'll find it interesting both in
finding out what a BLOG is and in following Eric's thoughts!

much about whooping cough. This website even has recorded samples of
folks with an extremely bad cough, but NOT whooping cough, and then great

thought it would be valuable to you too! I got to go...I got to wash

Sometimes we do sites just for fun and today is totally in that vein.
I got some of the most unusual answers to Test questions, to History
questions and to general Science questions. I laughed and laughed at
the way some folks put together words to fulfill the requirement that you
at least got to say SOMETHING on each question on a test.

WOW what a weekend, Julia Child has closed her kitchen! At
almost 92 years old, she said goodbye to the world and went on a galactic
tour. Over the years she said some pretty funny things and
here's actual sound files of some of the best!
What's that Julia, I must have
A couple of years ago she moved from her
apartment on the East Coast to a retirement center in California.
When that happened, we all got to be part of the "garage sale!" And
the winner of the kitchen was...The Smithsonian Institute! They have
restored her entire kitchen, right down to the outlines of the pots and
pans that her husband had drawn on the wall years earlier! I
don't know about you, but I'm not going to get there to see it for a
while, but now with the MAGIC of radio...You can stand in the middle of
Julia's kitchen and zoom in on any section that interests you!

FIRST A DISCLAIMER: Today's COOL SITE-PICK OF THE DAY is Bawdy!
It borders on adult humor. DO NOT VISIT THIS SITE if you are easily
offended or sensitive! However it's been on the major news outlets
all weekend and it is one of the funniest - poke fun at the political
system - just make you laugh - websites I've seen in years.
A couple of brothers have just a little to much time on their hands.
They create "spoof" commercials, mostly in a political vein. Their
latest tops the list. It's a singing gem featuring the two
candidates running for president this year. As it turns out, it also
happens to be Sen. Kerry's favorite song, but that happened by accident.
It will take a while to load, have your sound turned down and enjoy!

So as one of the many Americans who is NOT the president, I would
imagine that the 4th of July is an opportunity that only comes by once a

4th.....well here's the "activity" list all the way back to George.
