Site Seeing

For Christmas my daughter gave me a new desk calendar. Knowing my inquisitive mind, especially for all things trivial and mundane, she picked out a good one. It is called "365 Wacky Web Sites."

I thought I would turn a little Miss Cellania-esque for today's post and throw up some of the links to sites featured on the calendar through the first 14 days of 2009.

A website to tell me how a Bic lighter will blend, eh? Who knows when I might need that ;)

I dare say that you have just crossed the line. You have just added another level of evil to the web. As if I didn't have enough to do ignoring millions of other sites, now you add more options.

Should you choose to do this again there is a strong possibility that we, the riffraff, will arise and stone thee with....

In the meantime, continue to...

Serve with integrity, care about those you serve and share the love in your heart/soul.
