Ever wonder How stuff works? This is a great site for young and old alike. I especially recommend it to parents of those kids who constantly ask "How does this work?" It makes a great research tool that teaches how to get info as well as how does it work. Every thing from How Car Engines Work to How a Guitar Works and more. I realy like this site.
Stuck at home with the kids on a rainy day? Board out of your Gourd, need a project? Try the Make Stuff site.
You may noticed the link to Wind Skating, well I'm in to all forms of using the wind for fun and propulsion. Here's a page of KITE places you might want to visit.
Looking for that hard to find book on art or architecture? Doug Woods at Hennessey + Ingalls can find it for you. If you are in the Santa Monica (CA) area, stop by the store in the 3rd St. Promenade, it's well worth the trip.

Funny how you meet people on the net and become friends, yet have never meet them face to face. Well my friend Root is one of those special people. Please check out his page and his wonderful photographs.
For those of you who prefer to go through life Barefoot, may I suggest the following sites; The Society for Barefoot Living (SBL). They are a world wide group of Barefooters, offering advice for barefooting, a look at the laws (no it is not illegal to go barefoot) and an e-group for keeping up with others. While they do not have a web site, The Spiritual Barefooting e-group is a great group of people who find a spiritual connection in going through life Barefoot.
There is even a religion, The Church of the Barefoot Way for those who find a spiritual connection with their Higher Power or just feel grounded in their Barefootedness.
If you have ever seen a Greyhound racing and admired these magnificent animals, then you might want to check out the Greyhound Protection League. They rescue the dogs when they are too old to race, as most owners just have them killed when they no longer bring in any winnings. These wonderful dogs (yes I have had a few over the years) make the best of companions and welcomed members of the family. They are great with children, and require a "run a day" and a soft couch to curl up on. If you are looking for a dog, please consider adopting a rescued track dog. In California you can contact "Greyhound Adoption Center" at 1-877-GR8TDOG (1-877-478-8364)

Welcome to the Virtual Music Museum! A rather unusual site. Make sure you have down loaded and installed Cosmoplayer and RealPlayer (version 4.0 or later) before entering the museum. The site has links to down load them if you don't have them.
