Links to photos, library, coupons, etc.
I am separating my stitching photos from my family photos, and working on moving them to flickr.com
Mainly, as Jeff said that they have a better hosting deal (and they do!). $24.95/year with unlimited bandwith.
A great deal, actually. Unfortunately, I have run into a few snags, and am still trying to figure out how to put a link on here. But, if you email me, I can send you an invitation to view. I hope to have this fixed ... and soon! I do have to
admit, however, that PictureTrail
has prettier ways of displaying photos and is MUCH more user friendly.
So, if you are looking for a hosting site and do not have a lot ... I'd go with Picture Trail.
(BTW, it *should* be possible to search on flickr and find me ... if you can figure it out, my user name is yorkielady.)
Lastly, this is just an FYI, neither (to my knowledge) have affiliates enabled (darn it all!). :)
Link to a very cool Library site. It's free (at least, so far it is) and it's a place where you can go
to enter all your books. We decided to start on for the baby, as she is already accumulating a bunch!
Check it out, it's quite fun!
Seat Check - Have your car seat inspected. Eighty percent of kids riding in safety seats are at risk because they are not buckled correctly. Search the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) listing of child passenger safety seat inspection locations nationwide.
- Features electronic versions of weekly ads and coupons for grocery-store chains around the country.
National Do Not Call Registry - The National Do Not Call Registry gives you a choice about whether to receive telemarketing calls at home. Most telemarketers should not call your number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If they do, you can file a complaint at this Website. You can register your home or mobile phone for free. Your registration will be effective for five years.
Just for fun ...
Okay, these things are so fun, given 'em a try yourself!
