I think my gentlemen readers will be using this site more than my ladies, simply because we ladies are usually perfect, and rarely need to apologize. Because of our general wonderfulness, see. But you fellas may need to apologize, and the easiest way to do that is with a flower delivery. Gals just eat that up. (I know because I am a gal, see?) Vogue Flowers lets you order flowers online, so you don’t even have to get in your car to melt her heart. It’s just too easy!
“Make new friends, but keep the old,
One is silver and the other gold.”
If you were a girl scout, or your daughter is a girl scout, you probably recognize those words. That’s because the making and keeping of friends is as important to your personal happiness as the acquiring of good investments is to your financial happiness. In fact, I’d go so far as to say friends are an investment in your future. Just like gold and silver are buried and hard to find, so are good friends. And just like metal is purified by heat, so the heat and pressures of life reveal the true nature of people.
There is one difference though. You can purchase silver as an investment, but no one worth their salt can actually be bought.
Today’s neat thing is family time. Now, I just realized that family time around here is going to be rare indeed for the next few months, as several of my children are involved in fall sports. I’ll be having to make extra effort to ensure we stay connected. I urge you to do the same as we head into this busier time of year. Whether you get away by googling vacation home Orlando or by making a weekly family night a priority on your schedule, remember it’s the people in your life that make it what it is.
I want to give a shout out to Kelly who blogs at That’s what she said. She uses quite a few of the popular memes, and it really gave me a sense of who she was when I visited her blog. Perhaps I am just a geek who likes to store away trivia, but it was neat to me.
Education is a very neat thing, and i want to give a shout-out to one of my regular readers today, who is pursuing his dream of working in the medical field. Marcus is about to start his respiratory therapy program. In a couple more years, he’ll be wearing a little white coat and hanging a littman stethoscope around his neck! WayToGo, Marcus!
Here’s a neat place to get quick bio’s of fmaous 9and some not so famous) Women & Men. Whether you want to know more about Alanis Morissette or Derek Jeter, you can do it here. Use the search box on the lower left sidebar to find info quickly, and browse the right sidebar to see the latest additions to the site.
The face recognition program at this site is very neat. Upload a picture of yourself, and it will scan your face and come up with a list of celebrities you resemble, more or less. There are some pretty neat genealogy resources here, too. Check out the “6 must-do Things on MyHeritage”, about halfway down the page for great fun.
If you are like me, you love quotes. I like to read one, and then think about it as I go about mundane tasks. But then, I am weird that way. Famous Quotes at QuoteDB – Interactive Database of Famous Quotations will allow you to easily be as weird as I am. And I mean that in the kindest possible way.
This collection of ballerina photos is a tribute to great ballerinas.The Ballerina Gallery – Ballet Photos includes dancing greats from Eleonora Abbagnato to Svetlana Zakharova with biographical info accompanying each dancer’s photos. The site’s owner has also published pictures of some of his memorabilia.
Here is a site with many photos. So many in fact, that I almost put it on my photography blog. Because the site also includes a good amount of information about the culture, people, flora and fauna, I have elected to put it here instead. Whether you just want eye-candy, or want to learn something about Greece, this is a neat place to start.

Here at SixNeatThings, we love all things Celtic. We like the stories, we like the music, we like the festivals, we just have an affinity for the Celtic. We have even been known to embellish our hand knitted items with Celtic Knots. I was excited to see a site this morning called Celtic Hills. They have a neat collection of Celtic things including many versions of the Celtic cross. Check out the Irish Blessing Cross at the bottom of the page.
My the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand
This has always been one of may favorite blessings, and it is today’s neat thing.
Ever wonder how models get so beautiful? This is a timelapse videos of a Dove soap model. On it, you see how they take a rather plain looking woman and through make-up and computerized photo editing turn her into someone drop-dead gorgeous. It’s a real eye-opener. The Dove commercial should be mandatory viewing for your preteens and teens.
