Now THAT'S Weird (but PERFECT for Halloween)!

In efforts to find off the wall sites to share with you, I managed to come across
It's a blog full of  "strange and bizarre things of our world." After browsing for a while, I must say I agree...but it's not that kind of strange that makes you leave the site and never come back (or at least not for me). For me, it was more like, "Holy crap! Who would ever want to do that?!" And then I was on to the next article of "oddities."

So there you free with it, get the heebie jeebies and then come back for more.

Oh and Happy Halloween!

A Learning Community For Photographers

Okay Site Junkees...I found another cool site today while browsing the's called Cambridge In Colour. It's basically a site that helps you make the most of your digital camera by learning new photo techniques. Everything from digital exposure techniques, to taking photos in fog, mist or haze to many other styles and techniques. Not only did I find some excellent ways to make my digital photos look better...I also found an AMAZING photo collection by the editor and creator of the site, Sean T. McHugh, (who by the way, attended  the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom). 

So there ya go...browse the site...learn some new techniques, and tell me what you think.

Laughing Squid

If you locked a group of geeks and artists in a room for a week and told them to come up with something entertaining, you'd end up with "Laughing Squid." 
As they put it..."Laughing Squid is an online resource for art, culture & technology "
But, it's SO much more than that! As I browsed the site, I noticed they offer web hosting services as well as many informative and entertaining articles on art events in and around San Francisco. They also have a Link Blog with lots of links to other sites showcasing art, tech tips, art shows, events, etc.
Hope you get a chance to browse the site and explore like I did.

Train Your Brain!

As I reach my mid thirties, I seem to pay more and more attention to what I can do to slow my aging process. Having two grandparents who have passed, both with Alzheimer's Disease...I can't help but fear a similar outcome. So in an attempt to change my future outcome, I have found a website that's like exercise  for the brain, called Lumosity
Their mission: "is to create innovative neuroscience-based tools that empower people to lead better lives through better brain health and performance"

After playing a few of the different "brain games", I must admit...I feel a bit more alert and ready to take on the world...give it a try and tell me what you think.
Till next time....
