I love this site. If you're an animal lover and a fan of the Animal Planet Channel with it's shows like "I'm Alive", "The Haunted" and "It's Me or the Dog", you'll like it too.

There are quizzes, puzzles and other activities for both children and adults, videos, blogs, free wallpapers, a virtual Vet, info on animal breeds and much more.

It's a good site for everyone in the family and even advice on how to get involved with saving endangered animals. You can also find the TV schedules for your favorite Animal Planet channel shows. Stop by and check it out. It's a fun site.

I was researching some text problems I'm having and with Firefox and came across this site by accident. This site reportedly has "dangerous downloads". It was flagged by my virus software.

If you're looking to tweak your myspace layout, stay away from this site. I won't even go to the site myself after that warning popped up on the search results. I wasn't looking to tweak any layouts but I came across this site with that warning so I thought I'd post it for you folks that are looking for a site to help you with your myspace layouts. Use extreme caution if you do decide to check it out.

Just in case you miss the link on SiteJabber for the sitejabber add on through Firefox, here's the site to go directly to it.

I have downloaded it and it works very well. I've used it quite a bit already and I've saved myself some grief while online shopping for the new laptop I just purchased because I clicked on it and a couple of sites had bad reviews.

If you have a complaint on a business whether it is online or not, you can go to this website and file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

In addition to posting here, which I fully encourage, check out this site. I had a business screw me over once and I contacted them and filed a complaint and I not only got my money back, I got an apology as well. They send correspondence to the business and they're pretty effective.

You can check out a business as well as blog on the consumer blog. Sometimes you gotta get tough and the BBB has been around a long time. Don't settle for noncompliance. Learn how to protect yourself and your rights as a consumer.

I always recommend sitejammer and the BBB to anyone I know who has been badly treated or scammed by a business. Hit em where it hurts, guys.

Many of you have seen the TV show How Stuff Works so if you haven't googled it and stopped by the shows website, you might want to give it a look.

They've got quizzes, (including one on identity theft) and blogs and other fun stuff there. A good way to kill some time or if you're bored. You can even ask questions on how stuff works. Pretty cool site in my book.

Note: If you do nothing else, stop by and take the Dollars and Sense Identity Theft Quiz. It's very informative and will give you an idea of how much you really know about identity theft.

This is a pretty good site. I've ordered things before and there were never any delivery problems or problems with my items. Everything ran smoothly and arrived on time.

A small annoyance though. If you're Googling items and you find it on some price comparison, best deal type 3rd party sites, you might find they've listed a sale price for the item with a link to Walmart and the price may have changed. Walmart does not have to honor 3rd party site price quotes so if you find it more expensive when you are directed to the Walmart site, then there's not much you can do because the other sites don't always take the sales ad/link off the site in time. Of course the 3rd party site is at fault there and not Walmart.

Everything you see on the TV ads and internet ads are right on the money. I love this site.

As a Genealogist myself, I use it all the time and I've located some wonderful things on my own family. Draft cards, census, phone book records, it's all there. The little leaves that are used as hints are just fantastic. I actually saw my Grandfather's signature and personal information on his draft cards and I've connected with family I didn't even know I had!

It's well worth the money and they've got different plans to suit everyone. They offer a free trial and if you join you even get more access. Give it a shot. You may be related to someone famous or someone right around the corner that you didn't even know about!

Some of you might remember the old Bud Lite Real Men of Genius radio ads that Budweiser ran a few years ago. They were also called Real American Heroes.
These were some of the funniest radio ads I've ever heard. I always got a good laugh out of them.

It's Bud Lite Radio. Just scroll down a bit and you can listen to the ads. Always good fun.

For this particular one, copy n paste this link so you don't have to search for it on the site.

I've just posted a thread in the new email scams category that Michael has just created on the forum here about this site with some advice on what to do if you've contacted someone you believe is trying to scam you through an email scam.

This site has all kinds of sites and information regarding consumer fraud and some very helpful tips and advice on protecting yourself from these scammers and what to do if you're a victim. Hopefully, this site will save you or someone you know some grief.

We all love those stupid criminal stories and get a good laugh at their escapades and blatant stupidity. This site, aptly named of course has a collection of stories spotlighting the dumb, dumber and dumbest mankind has to offer with lots of entertaining stories and you can even submit stories of your own. Check it out and have a chuckle.

Kudos to Frank C for his review of this site!

I went to it and downloaded the software and it worked like a charm! Thank you Frank! It's definitely cleaned up and cleared up some long time issues I've had with my computer. Great site! It was very fast too.

Okay, the name is a little funny sounding but if you're into Motorcycles and forums, this is the place for you.

My boyfriend has been on this site for years and there are some great people on there and the forum is very active. He loves it. The people are pretty funny and sometimes a bit risque and they offer advice on motorcycle maintenance and problem solving on everything from mechanical problems to where you can find a hard to find part. If you have any questions, the members are always willing to help you find the answer and there are some real characters on there, lol. The site owners closely monitor and interact with the members and are very attentive to their members concerns and suggestions.

They've even got trip trackers and maps you can fill in for the places you've been and a lot of the members actually get together at times for long rides, trips and general socializing.

It doesn't matter if you ride a Harley or a Suzuki, all are welcome there. In fact, you don't even have to have a motorcycle to join. You'll be accepted either way. Stop by and have a look at some of the posts and you just might like it well enough to join.

This is a great site if you love games. They have Hidden Object games, strategy, puzzles, word, card and just about any kind of game that tickles your fancy.

You can download a free trial of most games and you can play many online games as well. Games are also available for purchase and I've purchased several of them and I've been very happy with their games and their customer service. I've never had a problem with them or any game I've purchased and I've been on that site for a couple of years now.

Just about anyone can find a game they'll like here. It's a good way to keep your mind sharp too.

Okay folks. Roll up your sleeves and if you want to find out where the nearest blood drives are and where the centers are to donate blood, use this website. You can find out how much of what blood type they've taken and you will see that some of the rarer types are needed as well as the normal everyday blood types.

I've joined the Commit For Life Program and I'm a regular donor but they can always use more, especially of the rare blood types. My sister needed blood and it took them more than 2 days to find blood for her because she has a rare type. Thank God she wasn't bleeding to death at the time.

This is your chance to help someone and possible save their lives or your own one day. I took 6 pints altogether after I had my baby and hemorrhaged just a week later. Someone who donated blood saved my life which is why I am giving it back. It's not something you think about often but it can happen to you.

So, this website will make it easy for you find out where to go and what to do. You can even donate blood for someone in particular in their name. And don't worry, if you've never donated before. It's just a little stick, just turn your head and don't look at the needle if you're scared of needles and they'll give you something to eat afterward. Nothing to it!

Come on, admit it! We all like a good ghost story, don't we? I know I do. This website offers supposedly true ghost stories, Ouija board stories and just about anything paranormal including links for EVP's. It's got a good sized forum where you can talk about scary stuff or normal chatter.

I like this site because whether you're a believer or not, you can read the blogs and discuss them with each other and they have some rather interesting topics. Like today, they had a blog on Debunking the Bermuda Triangle. There's several categories to check out so if you've got some time to kill, stop in and take a look. You might enjoy it.

We all know about Campbell's soups and have enjoyed them but there's a lot more you can do with a can of soup than just heat and eat.

This site has a lot of good recipes, like French Onion Burgers, casseroles and healthy heart-smart recipes as well.

If you're pressed for time, you'll find some recipes here to fit your lifestyle and be prepared and cooked in a hurry. I use the Cream of Mushroom soup mix to make a quick Beef Stroganoff and Mushroom Chicken. Both are delicious and easy.

There is also a coupon savings link and an online community. Maybe if you're getting bored or your family is getting bored with the same old menu, you can find something here to try. I generally try to introduce a new recipe once a week just to break up any monotony. My family enjoys it and I love trying new things.

They even have a recipe navigator where you can search by "need". Like for a time saver recipe and you can even search by "mood", like if you're in the mood for chicken or whatever.

Give it a shot. I think you'll like this site very much. ;)

For anyone who wants to check out the news in Houston, Texas, this is a pretty good website to do it.

You can also friend people, post pictures, send messages and comment on the news stories. I've seen some pretty good debates going on there as well as the occasional spat but you meet some interesting people and it can be a lot of fun. It also covers the national news and things like that as well.

2/21/10

This is another really fun site. If you don't understand a particular slang saying or word or you just wanna learn some fun new terms, this is the site to go to. It's really pretty humorous as well as informative.

Someone told me one day that someone "fartled" them. I said "what?" They told me to look the word up on urban dictionary and I did and it gave me quite a chuckle, lol. It's obviously a slang, made up term, lol. I'll let you look this one up on your own, lol.

So, next time one of your teenagers seem to be speaking in a foreign language, just check the urban dictionary to see if you can decipher it. ;)

2/21/10

This is a really cool site! It has free videos which can tell you how to do just about anything from how to make Jello Shot-Balls, how to peel potatoes without a peeler to making a little Lego toilet with a figurine, skin care and everything, lol. They have exercise videos and stuff like that too. They've even got a video on making little candies that look like bugs, lol. Of course they even have how to videos on hydroponics and how to make stop motion films and a variety of other things, It also has an online community and you can comment about the videos.

It's a really fun site. If you have the time, check it out. I'm sure you'll like it too.

If you want to hide your IP and protect your identity while online shopping or surfing, this is a really good service.

You get a free trial and if you like the service, it's just $9.95 a month. I have it and I've been very happy with it and the customer service so far. I've had it for about 3 months and I've had no problems with it at all.

A lot of people use this service if they've been banned from websites too because most sites will ban you by your username, email address and IP address. I've got some friends that use this just for that. (They didn't really deserve to be banned, it was a result of the Boji's on clickondetroit but that's a whole other story, lol.)

Anyway, this is a great service so take a look and see if it can help you surf a little safer online.
