Amazing Animals of Myth & Legend

Are you interested in weird and mysterious creatures?  This is an excellent piece chock full of creatures that I had never heard of.  All of this cryptobiology could give you palpitations! The above, for example, is the minhocao  (big earthworm in Portuguese), which is said to burrow underground, is believed to be a relic of the dinosaur age. Sightings were mostly reported in Brazil during the 19th century. Some people think that minhocaos are still spotted but accidentally reported as another cryptid, the giant anaconda.

The Big Caption

Over at The Big Caption, the news pictures from around just keep rolling in - but with a difference.  The originals are captioned and the re-released on an unsuspecting public.  It is not always in the best of taste either, which makes the pleasure guilty - and so even better.  If you are easily shocked or offended though - don't go there!

Never Lose Anything Again!

If you are anything like me then that will mean that you haven’t got a terribly good track record when it comes to losing things.  When those things happen to be valuable (either in monetary or emotional terms) then trawling around lost and found offices, not to mention the police station, can be a little bit of a drag to say the least.

Now there is a very cool way of ensuring that you don’t have to go through all of that.  Get TagBak and you can simply tag your items and then they will find their way back home to you without you having to lift a finger.  Honesty of course is important  here – but this is one way to encourage people to be just that!

What is even better there is a Get it back discount code that can be used to give you 15% off.

Create Your Own Website - Free!

Guess what!  I have just created my own – extremely cool – website in under ten minutes.  Plus (possibly the best thing too) it was all free.  If you would like to create a free website  then take it from me – the process is really straightforward.  I am about as technical as a frog so if I can do it then so can you.

Of course I had some help and that is where came in.  Once you sign up as a member (which again is free and is quick and easy, no checking your email for confirmation links, you just choose a name, a password and away you go) you can choose from hundreds of templates that are already stored on the site or you can adapt them to create your own.

For non technical people like me there is a step by step help system which you can open in a new window and follow until you are more confident.  The system is very straightforward and I found that I had created a home page within ten minutes.  Plus it had the features you might expect or want already set up, such as a guestbook and a contact list.

All in all, this was an enjoyable experience (something which I thought I would never say when it came to building websites, something I usually leave to others).  I didn’t need to know flash or HTML – or anything like that at all.  A few simple steps and there it was!  Why not try it out for yourself?
