Velvet from Velvet Sacks has a post blaming one of her blogging friends for getting her stuck on a puzzle site. I can understand, I do that sometimes too. Her friend was tagged on her blog to name five of her favorite sites. There were some rules attached to the meme and so that's not what I'm doing here but I am just sharing five of my favorite sites. Some you may know of, some you might not, but I spend a lot of my Internet on one of these sites or another.
Google Image Labeler
I came across this site by accident as I love Google Image and this is just a silly thing they have they say to help them labeling images so people can better find what they want. You earn points but I'm not sure what you can do with them. I just like to do it. You are partnered with someone else and you have two minutes to match a description of an image. (PLEASE be aware that you can't control the images that appear so this is not a game for a child or for you if you are offended easily. Mostly they are g rated images but every once in a while they are NOT. )
The Old Farmer's Almanac
I guess because my Daddy loved the Old Farmer's Almanac, I've always been drawn to it. This site is all the magazine is and more. There are best days listed according to the moon to go to the dentist, potty train your baby, get a haircut, plant your potatoes, well you get it. Chocked full of information and fun facts and old wives's tales.
Cooking by Numbers
This site cracks me up sometimes. Here you can enter the ingredients you have on hand and it generates a recipe. It's really neat and will make you laugh out loud sometimes if you put in weird ingredients.
The Internet Movie Base
I love, love, love this site. Here you can find just about any movie made, reviews, all about the people that were in it, you can watch trailers of movies, you can see what actor was in a movie and also what other movies he was in. If you love movies, you will love this site.
A note from the Universe
This is an interesting site, based on the Law of Attraction belief mostly, but what I love about it is that I signed up to receive a "Message From the Universe" in my email every day. The message is inspirational and can really hit home at times.
And those are some of my favorite sites at this time. What are yours?
