Poetry Archive


Here you will find poems nicely divided by subject. The Poetry Archive is a delightful way to spend enough time to drink a cup of hot tea. Or perhaps a little longer if you have the leisure to do so. From Sarah F. Adams to Claire Zu Bard, the selection is extensive.

Bread is Dangerous


I may never look at a PBJ in quite the same way again, because research on bread indicates that………….Bread is Dangerous This site is good for a laugh, and it’s a pretty quick read. Enjoy! Just don’t make a sandwich first.

World on Fire


Sarah McLachlan breaks it down for us. World on Fire is an awesome video, and I promise it will inspire you. The song is beautiful, and the thoughts behind it are just as lovely. It’s nice to see a star doing more than pay lip service to social change.

Norton Online


The anthology is on the web! Start with the page linked to hear some audios, but click around to get more eras/features. I used the Norton Anthology in college back in the day, and I still think it’s great. Oh, this was back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, and the internet was just a gleam in Al Gore’s eye. I actually had to read it myself, on actual pages, printed with actual ink.

A Neat Vacation


Usually when you travel there are a million and one things to keep in mind, but I found a neat travel thing to tell you about today, and it’s an all inclusive resort in The Caribbean. This website offers discounts on travel, and they take care of all the details for you! No worrying about tips, meals, entertainment or any of that. It’s in there, just like the famous spaghetti sauce.

The pictures are compelling and there are a variety of vacations to meet your travel plans. If you are ready to get away, this is a very neat way to do it!

Check the Weather

in space! Space Weather is a science geek’s dream. There is a lot of great information here. You can get the skinny on space wind, sun spots, meteor showers, and more.

Public Radio


Public Radio Channels from around the world. If you are a fan of public radio, you will enjoy this site. This site is neat for allowing you to catch your favorite shows on your schedule.

Speaking of schedules, I kinda fell off my blogging groove with this site, didn’t I? I’m sorry, ya’ll. I’ll try to do better.


2990051.jpg As a mom to many children, I think jewelry that shows mothers and children is beautiful. Here’s a piece I found on a page of Catholic medals. Whenever I see it, it reminds me of the spinning game, and how fun it feels to just hold hands and go around and around. Do you remember how that felt like flying?

Japanese IQ Test


This is the classic raft game with a couple of twists. I played this game several times, but I have yet to win. The Japanese IQ Test is more challenging than it looks. Let me know if you figure it out.

Author House


The last neat thing for tonight is AuthorHouse. This is a publishing company that will help you self-publish your book. Over 25,000 people have already taken advantage of their author advocates, gaining valuable advice while maintaining control of what happens to their work. Once your book is published by AuthorHouse, it can be ordered at retail outlets, as well as Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com and the AuthorHouse.com site itself. So, get writing already!

Hot Water


I told you I had a couple more neat things rolling around in my head, and the next one is HOT WATER. I feel like I’ve moved in to one of the palatial homes in the the Cary NC real estate listings, even though I am still here in my own modest home in Bitty-burg. I finally got a hot shower after a week of cold water, and life is grand. So, you tell me: is hot water neat enough to qualify for this blog? If you don’t think so now, just disconnect your hot water tank for a week, and then come back and answer.


Today’s neat thing, (and I do realize I am behind in neat things, but if I told you what has been going on here at my house, you would certainly forgive me. I just know it,) is a truck. My cousin came over the weekend with his, and took away a couple of my yard markers. You know, the freezer that we took out, the dishwasher we replaced. Those things. Yep, buh-bye in the back of the pick-up-truck! With that stuff taken care of, I hope to get back to my normal posting schedule. I already have another couple of posts in my head for today :)
