The 100th Post

This is my 100th post! And to celebrate I'm breaking tradition, adding a new category, and deluging you with fun and interesting things!

First fun...a list of the Top 100 Websites: Classic and Undiscovered (Click on the blue box at the top left of the article for the category list). These were some I liked:
Group Greeting Cards
Oddee, my favorite find, which has some cool stuff like treehouses, strange medical conditions, and wacky classified ads, among others.
Wikipedia and IMDb (both listed in my links)

Next fun...since everyone is jumping on the Christmas bandwagon (yes, I saw Christmas lights in stores over Labor Day) I'm putting in my winter fun. A snowflake maker. B and I spent an afternoon a few years ago making flakes. This led to a snowball fight B downloaded onto my desktop computer. Once you get the hang of it, it can be addictive. I won't give away the ending.

Some interesting links...
Pennies? An interesting look at pennies.
100 Most Often Misspelled Words is good as a reference bookmark.
Time's 2008 list of the Top 100 Most Influential People. I found the first people listed under Heroes & Pioneers verrry interesting.
An article about Monk. The series celebrated it's 100th episode (of course, I watched) on September 5.

This was too funny to pass up...the top 100 April Fool's Day hoaxes. It had me cracking up! Try the message in #18 on page two, the humor in #29 on page three, and the gullibility found in #44 or #47 on page five. #62 talks about an Esquire article in which someone offers free cars. Part of the process required filling out a 600 question survey, providing notarized video rental receipts, and submitting a stool sample. How could you fall for that? Don't read all of them at once! I mean there's 100 of them.

Okay, that's all I've got. Happy 100!
