What time is it?

02/05/2007

Use this handy map to check the time anywhere, just by moving your mouse! Time Zone Check is handy for when you need to call that cross country friend, or even one half way ’round the globe. This would also be great for explaining time zones to children, because the names of places change as you move across the map, along with the time zone abbreviations. I can never remember what the letters stand for, so I appreciate that.

Presentation Folders

02/03/2007

If you are a business person, this post is for you. Professionally printed folders are a great way to jazz up your presentations. It takes a great deal of work to put those presentations together and they deserve to be bound nicely to show off your hard work. Presentation folder printing can help you put your best foot forward, and that’s always a neat thing. It’s an easy step to take to ensure your work gets the attention it deserves.

Classic Cat – the free classical mp3 directory

Here is a marvelous collection of classical music. Classic Cat – the free classical mp3 directory has links to over 4000 classical performances. Just search by composer, and then by work. A brilliant way to sample different composers and find your favorites. I’m enjoying George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue as I type :) I would not have considered him to be a classical composer, as his work does has neither the heaviness nor the majesty I expect when I think classical. It’s actually a fun piece.
