Friday Round Up

It's so good to see that both NPR and National Geographic now have blogs. Check out the entry on National Geographic's blog about Chinatown buses. Fascinating.

Have you seen the Google Shakespeare Database or the Google Alphabet?

Every morning before I do anything else I make sure I go to the Hunger Site and click for charity. Now there's an entire search engine where users can perform searches and the money that is generated goes to charity. What's really fun about this is that the user can pick their favorite charity. Goodsearch is a Yahoo-powered search engine. The user can help fund any of a thousand different charities. This week I have been performing my searches for Doctors Without Borders. Next week-who knows? The possiblities are endless.

I have found another periodic table.

Bad teeth, malaria, dysentery, smallpox, quinsy and pneumonia looks like a portion of the list you either check off yes or no to when you go to the doctors. In this case it's a list of maladies that George Washington, you know the country's daddy, had. Look out some of the other maladies the presidents had/have.

I came upon the blog Damn Interesting and I must say it is "Damn Interesting". While I was persuing the blog I came across this "damn interesting" story about the Glacier Girl and the Lost Squadron, which led me to this.

Have a nice weekend.

"Knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge—broad, deep knowledge—is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man’s progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life." - Helen Keller

Hey there Ms. Libby,

Do you like the Mediaval Baebes?

They are good fun with pretty voices, I think!

Jeepers, I love your posts!

Thanks for providing more to explore!
