Website Wednesdays

From Around The Internet...

By the middle of the week, you may need a break! Check here for some websites that may keep you entertained for a little while!  

See cities all over the globe, streamed live online.
Search your favorite city, and see things like Memphis Panda Cam, the Gracelandcam, bealestreetcam, polarbearcam, Tokyocam and more. Even a live camera from the beach in puerto rico, so you can see the trees, the sand and the blue waters... and have something to dream about on a cold dreary day.

How-Tos for Food, Home, Style, Family, Money, Health and More, all on one page. FUN ideas to decorate your home for Halloween and Christmas, centerpieces, getting the garden ready for fall, a guide to women's athletic wear and how to find time for yourself!

Let's go to GUMBYWORLD today! On the Google homepage they have an interactive doodle of Gumby, in honor of what would have been the 90th birthday of Art Clokey. He was the creator of Gumby, the first stop-motion claymation figure. At Gumbyworld you can see Gumby cartoon clips, Gumby toys and lots more.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean has invited us to join him for a 5K run or walk through downtown Nashville. It's part of the "Mayor's Challenge" to help Nashville get healthy.

What a great family website! If you are looking for city, county or state fairs anywhere in the country, this is the website for you. It's Fair Season, so there's lots to choose from. It's Fairs and Fun.com!

There's a satellite that's expected to fall back to earth around FRIDAY. You can see pictures, and keep track of when and where NASA says the largest pieces are going to hit. Plus, see a space-view of a hurricane, and watch NASA TV at NASA.gov

This is a brand new Google site:  http://www.google.com/flights/

If you ever fly anywhere, check this out. It is the most user friendly search engine for flights, etc. But fair warning, like other flight searchers, ie. Expedia, etc. Southwest is not included. Why? You'd have to ask them!
