More Internet Wanderings

Looking for some new resources / places to waste a few hours?

Sk*rt - http://www.sk-rt.com/
Sk*rt allows readers to add links to sites of interest, and then if another reader likes the link as well, to "vote" for the link. The front page has the most popular links of the moment, but there's lots of fun ways to stroll around Sk*rt and discover some interesting resources, stories, and sites. A great way to waste some time!

Google 411 - http://www.google.com/goog411/
Free 411? Count me in. You don't need a computer or an internet connection, just a phone (cell or land line). Just call 1-800-GOOG-411 and tell them what you're looking for, and the listing is provided for FREE. You can have the information sent to your phone as a text message if you'd like, or even get it mapped. Try it!

Zafu - http://www.zafu.com
Fill out the profile info on Zafu, and you'll get recommendations for jeans, pants, and bras that will fit YOUR body. The recommendations are based on the study of how the products fit on thousands of women with all kinds of different body type. You'll get a good range of prices, from cheapie cheap to splurge. I've tried two different pairs of jeans recommended by Zafu, and been happy with both.

Insurance inventory - http://knowyourstuff.org/
This one isn't as much fun as the others, but boy is it important. It is recommended for insurance purposes that we take an inventory of our belongings in case of loss. If you're like me, this is one of those to-do's that NEVER gets done. But this FREE program (for Windows XP, 2000, or MAC OS 10.3 or higher) definitely helps - fill out the information for each room, add pictures of items, and then keep a copy of the file somewhere OTHER than on your home computer (since as we know that can disappear) and you'll have the information you need should a loss occur. I've decided this is a good winter time (read: lots of time indoors) project, and is a goal for me for the year.

Anyone else found something good lately?


  • You are so cool I can't stand it :)

  • I recently wasted some time on this site: http://www.myheritage.com/

    You upload a picture and it generates your celebrity face matches. There is also a page where you upload a picture and the mother and father and it decides which parent the child looks most like. Or you can make a picture family tree.
