Here is a list of sites that I have visited and found interesting. This is a
mixture of URLS, in no particular order.
Real-time video over the Inernet. Now this is
really good stuff. Are you aware of the fact that you can connect a video camera to
your computer and transmit, over the internet, the picture that the video camera is
taking? Real time? That is, if I visit your camera site on the WWW, I will see
the image that your camera is shooting as it is being shot. Take a look at this
site. It has links to all sorts of cameras. For example, one guy has a camera
focused on his cats' food and water dishes in his kitchen and, if the cats are there, you
see them eating, drinking, lying around, and generally being cats. And there are all
sorts of other live cams here. http://www.dreamscape.com/frankvad/cams.html
Celtic Web Art. This is a really amazing
site. The lady who authored the site has designed and developed all sorts of artwork
based on Celtic designs and themes. You can view the artwork and, if you abide by
Internet hoaxes. The internet is filled with
hoaxes and bad information. The Department of Energy maintains this site to keep
their employees informed of the latest Internet hoaxes. I have this site bookmarked
and check it out every week or so. http://ciac.llnl.gov/ciac/CIACHoaxes.html
Bartlett's Quotations. Here is an on-line
version of the famous reference work. http://www.columbia.edu/acis/bartleby/bartlett/
Sumo. During the three years that I was
stationed in Japan, I became a fan of the Japanese national sport of sumo. Here is
the official sumo web site from Japan. It's available in English and Japanese.
This site has history of sumo, details on the sport, information on great sumo
champions, as well as current information on tournaments, wrestlers, and the like.
Urban Legends Web Site. Ever hear the
story about the lady/gentleman who ate a chocolate chip cookie at
Niemann-Marcus/Nordstrom's/Mrs. Fields, liked it, asked for the recipe, and was charged
$250? And, to get even, this person is now distributing the recipe? Never
happened. How about the one that Congress is considering legislation that would
apply a long distance charge to every e-mail that you will send? Not true.

No listing would be complete without an invitation to visit my
Vietnam War MIA Facts Site.
