    Puzzling Time

    Are you one of those that periodically have an extra 5 - 12 minutes of "dead time" on your hands? Looking for something quick and entertaining to fill that space? Here is something fun to try! Visit: JigZone

    This site is a great place to work a quickie jigsaw puzzle online. You can burst the picture into different numbers, sizes and shaped pieces, just depending on how much time you want to put into it. My favorite is 80 piece Classic, however....a real quick and entertaining cut is the 35 piece Jigzone cut! Go ahead...give it a quick try. After you finish ....scroll down on the left and it will compare your time with the fastest and average solve times.

    If you get bitten by the "jigsaw bug" is another idea: go to Jigsaw Puzzle LIte and download the program FREE. This program allows you to make jigsaw puzzles from pictures on your computer. Just imagine working a jigsaw of your grandkids!

    The real value of working jigsaw puzzles on your computer, however, is that the cat doesn't destroy them after you go to bed! ,/i. Have Fun!

    I don't know about you, but it's cold outside around here. As much as I love the summer time, I am welcoming the coming winter with open arms. Snow falling, holidays, sledding trips to the cabin in the mountains. All these and more make the winter more bearable. What ever you choose to do this winter to keep the cabin fever to a ... - CONTINUED

    Recently it has become easier and easier to use digital cameras. Once you have the camera, it's easy to take a lot of snapshots for almost no cost (you're just paying for the battery power to run the camera). Now that your computer has all of these images on it, you want to share them with friends and family. Instead of sending out 40 ... - CONTINUED

    Junk mail or SPAM whichever you want to call it, is unsolicited, unwanted and inappropriate email that is sent out to thousands of email addresses. Commercial advertising, promotions and scams, in mass quantities is spam.

    These are the coolest sites in the entire world (in my opinion)

    #1 has got to be Ebay. At this site you can get anything, and get it cheap. Hard to find parts, videos, electronics. Chances are someone out there thinks its junk but it's GOLD to you and me! Bes...
