Hoaxbusters! My heartstrings are often pulled by forwards I received about a woman in trouble, warnings of some new malody, or aweful computer viruses that are knocking on my door. Hoaxbusters provides information on all those emails that ARE NOT true, and it gives you a pointer on how to decipher the truth behind the lies. May this site help you distinguish between the two.
Shutter City I love photography. This site provides some beautiful photos. I noticed that the photos are by many different contributers, and I also noticed that there was some adult material (artistically adult, in my opinion), but most of the photos there are of nature. I have bookmarked this site for it's stunningly beautiful scenery photos.
Peter Jarva Photography A completely self-taught photographer, Peter Jarver's natural talent was complimented by his enthusiasm for the great Australian landscape. Long an advocate for the preservation of our natural heritage, his images are not just technically perfect and aesthetically pleasing - in them Peter was able to capture the emotion and drama of a place in a way few other photographers can.
Let Your Inner Child Play! Each of us have a child inside us--the child we once were, who in some way wasn't nurtured or cared for, or, for survivors of extreme trauma, many uncared for children. Whether or not you believe you have a child inside you, why not give play a try? What do you have to lose? And you may find it makes you happier.
Planet Sark Here is an exerpt from the mind of Sark, hopefully it will give you and idea of the magic inside her site....'I tried to avoid my creative dreams in every way possible. Then I realized that I literally and truly had nothing to lose, and things couldn't deteriorate any further...
Of course, things did get worse! Then I decided to devote myself to my dreams NO MATTER WHAT THE COST and see what that would produce. I was astonished by the riches inside. We all have these riches.'
