A Round of Links

Just when I thought my computer problems were solved (new computer, new system, new browser, new ISP), I find myself in competition for online time. Both my kids have beome expert netsurfers. They tell me there would be no problem if I just got them each their own computer. I don’t THINK so. They are too young, and I am too cheap. So we will have to share. Maybe I will get an egg timer and reward housecleaning time with computer time. Might work for them, sure doesn’t work for me.

Would you please draw your attention to the new poll in the sidebar. Then click on something. Sure, its an ego thing, but I also honestly would like to put stuff on this blog that folks enjoy, so finding out what you like might help.

My Heritage will run your face through a database of celebrities and see who you resemble. One friend refused to try it. He assumed that since I sent it, it must be one of those websites that come back saying you resemble a monkey or something. But this is real. I tried it with the my latest pic, and they say I resemble Olivia Newton-John. I don't see any likeness at all.

I LOVE these singing horses! I use the kids as an excuse to listen every so often. Click each horse to make him/her start or stop singing.

A very simple political quiz. Not only will it plot your beliefs, but there are also explanations for the various categories. My results are to the left (of course).

A man moves into a nudist colony. He receives a letter from his grandmother asking him to send her a current photo of himself in his new location. Too embarrassed to let her know that he lives in a nudist colony, he cuts a photo in half intending to send the top half to Granny. Unfortunately, he accidentally sends the bottom half of the photo. He's really worried when he realizes that he sent the wrong half, but then remembers how bad his grandmother's eyesight is, and hopes she won't notice. A few weeks later he receives a letter from his grandmother, "Thank you for the picture. Change your hair style... it makes your nose look short. Love, Grandma"

Thought for Today: Be careful reading the fine print. There's no way you're going to like it.

I can't tell you for sure how I found your blog, Human. I think it was a link trail that started on the blogroll of It Occurred to Me. But I'm glad you are enjoying the vacation!

I did that face thing...the first time it told me I look like Gerald Ford, ick! I submitted another picture and it told me I look like Kim Basinger, much better but I look nothing like her either. Funny.

Hi Miss. Well we are back and pics are posted along with a story. After perusing your site I vote for not changing anything. Does anyone click on the 'I don't do polls" button. You got lots of fun stuff. I took the political quiz on another sheet and came out to the left of Mandela and Ghandi. No surprise there. Peace.
