March Timewasters

 

March 31 - I totally have a cold, so I was trying to figure out how to make it go away and I found this site that addresses common myths about the common cold. Talk about interesting reading. And to think I always believed that dairy products would make your cold worse. Although in my defense, the person who told me that heard it from his mom who was a nurse so I guess even medical people are wrong about stuff sometimes. 

Anyhow, if you want to know for sure whether to starve a cold, today's site is for you.

March 30 - Apparently the greatest mystery of World War 11 happened right here in the Bay Area. It involved a ghost blimp, and no one ever found out what really happened. I just saw a snipit of it on the news today, but you can read all about it or at least what little is actually known about it, at today's link.

March 8 - They say that everybody knows somebody who knows somebody who knows, well you get it. So the idea is that if enough people know you're looking for someone eventually one of the people who knows you're looking will be one of the people who knows the person you're looking for. So with that in mind, check out today's link and maybe you'll turn out to be the one to help find Don.

March 1 - Before there were cell phones there were pay phones. If you got stranded somewhere, say... the Mojave desert, you might be lucky enough to stumble across a phone booth. Sadly those days are no more. Check out today's site and read one person's experience with a phone booth in the middle of nowhere and share my sadness at the end of an era.
