A "Thursday Thirteen" of all sorts
Most of these links were sent by friends and readers, and the remainder came from my own web expeditions.
1. Download and install free software easily at the Ninite Installer website.
2. Daily Sodoku -- Just one of many Brainbashers at this site
3. Easy Bib -- If you remember typing footnotes and bibliography the old-fashioned way, this site will make you cry, "Unfair!"
4. Slide show of cowboy and western paintings. If you enjoy rural scenery and images of ranch life, you'll also like these photos of the American Midwest
5. How to make a folded German bell ornament -- for your spare time between now and Christmas
6. Whooping Crane Reintroduction website with Operation Migration Crane Cam
7. Print a calendar for 2010.
8. A great set of corner shelves, cut from a single sheet of plywood
9. Eagle vs. fox -- An astonishing encounter over a carcass (verified by Snopes)
10. Views of San Francisco Bay from a Zeppelin at 1000 feet -- very cool
11. "Foods That Heal" -- but don't stop your prescriptions!
12. "Guess Your Number" game -- How do these things work so well?!
13. Independence Day quiz -- Can you answer 20 questions once used on the citizenship test?
Thanks to all who have sent interesting links to share!
