Websites(s) Of The Week

If you want to find a website that was previously posted on "Website of the Week" - this is the place to find it!

May 16, 2010 - May 22, 2010

Funny Typos - Grammar geeks will delight in Funny Typos, a site devoted to ridiculing the language-challenged among us. Why people cant menage to reed there writhing batter is simpy a misery to me.

Safety Graphic Fun - Do park visitors generally need to be told “Please do not sit on crocodile”? Must employees at a company parking lot be reminded “Do Not Sleep Below the Vehicle”? Silly as these things sound, they’re actual warnings posted on public safety signs. Safety Graphic Fun works to compile the most ridiculous placards, outlandish announcements, and attorney-inspired posterior papering from around the world, some of which are astonishingly absurd. My favorite: “Touching wires causes instant death. $200 fine.”

May 9, 2010 - May 15, 2010
Product Wiki - A Wickipedia-type product review website. All reviews and articles are written and updated by the site's users.

Colour Me Happy - Well, this one is a blog that's a personal favorite of mine. Everything you ever wanted to know about color and your home.

Dilbert - I love this cartoon! From here, you can see other Dilbert comic strips - visit the Dilbert bl0g - and even Mashups where you can help do some comic creation.

May 2, 2010 - May 8, 2010
Hershey - It's another gift-giving time of year. You know - the ol' flowers and candy thing. When I think of candy, I think of chocolate and when I think of chocolate. I think of Hershey's and when I think of Hershey's, I think of my grandmother who LOVED Hershey kisses. I feel a story coming... so I'll leave it at that! :) Enjoy!

SoYouWanna - This is a site to help you buy gifts that people really want. There are quite a few great links on this page. ('m not fussy - almost anything will do, but music always works for me.)

April 18, 2010 - April 24, 2010
WhichBook - A fun way to find something new to read. Slide your cursor along a variety of spectra (happy --> sad --> funny --> serious --> short --> long, etc.). The website does some calculations and spits out a list of title suggestions, complete with descriptions of the plot.

Freecycle - The Freecycle Network is made of of 4,775 groups with 7,090,000 members acroxx the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local groups is moderated by a local volunteer. Membership is free.

April 11, 2010 - April 17, 2010
Toms Shoes- With every pair of shoes you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need. One for One.

Red Envelope - Red Envelope claims to be "The place for unique and personalized gifts". I'm not sure it's THE place, but it's sure one of them. I love to look at all the great ideas there.

January through March
Draw a House ~ This one is addictive! Beware!

The Subservient Chicken - This site is sponsored by Burger King and it just cracks me up!

Neena's Lighting - Okay, so I read in a magazine that this was THE place to look for lighting - any kind - any price. Any kind, I'm buying, but any price? See what you think.

Remodelista - My house is a disaster, so I'm always looking for ideas. This site is pretty cool.

Retail Me Not - A catalog of online coupons posted and reviewed by users. The coupons vary from sites like Polo to Amazon to Papajohns

SugarCasa - Decorating finds and goodies
