The Puzzle Museum. (Also sent to me by Gloria.)
Craziest Gadgets is a technology blog about unique inventions of the oddest sort. (This link was sent to me by Taurus.)
Sharkbreak is a stress-relieving toy to play with while you are waiting on the telephone. Chatnoir is a more challenging game -- try to cage the cat. (These links are from Kenneth.)
If you liked Chatnoir, you might like some of the other Flash games at Gamedesign, too.
Free Fax will send a DOC, .DOCX, or .PDF as a fax. (Hint--some scanners will save in PDF format.) There's a small fee if you don't want advertising on the cover sheet.
Make your own bike rack. This rack is for hauling bicycles in a truck, but it would work just as well for the garage.
Printable Paper is a great resource for graph paper, game score sheets, staff and chord paper for music, and much more.
Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet is where I recently found links to the 1900 and 1920 U.S. Census records which contain handwritten data about my great-grandparents George and Elizabeth Sees.
