What other websites are fun??

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I am often sitting thinking there must be some interesting things on the internet that I'm missing..

What sites do you guys like other than TCS? Doesn't have to be about cats, just in general?

Well, I visit a lot of NASCAR racing sites, as well as Verdant Forums, the gardening site related to TCS. I enjoy news sites, like www.USAToday.com.

It really depends on what you are interested in. There is more stuff out there to look at than you can imagine.

You might like this one

www.flightaware.com

I can keep track of all the aircraft I've ever flown by their registration, it's so cool to see that they are still airworthy and keeping busy

and for you Natalie...I like this website too

http://allrecipes.com/

I get lots of good ideas off this website for dinners

youtube is a GREAT timewaster... sometimes i just type in random things im interested in - courtney love, tigers, SNL skits, flavor of love, car chases, comedy - just put a keyword you're interested in in the search bar and hit search, and you'll come up with some videos to keep you entertained

i go to other boards but they're specific to bands i like. im also on livejournal a lot, but my entries are friends-only (tho if anyone has LJ here, if you want to add me just let me know who you are and ill add you).

oh-i also go to http://www.thefashionspot.com, a forum ALL about fashion

I do puzzles on jigzone.com, or games on coolquiz. NOAA's weather website is checked daily!! Recipes on epicurious.com. I have LOTS of gardening websites-I like Page's Top Hat and the Renegade Gardener. The Royal Horticulture website is good too.

I've been trying to find some new sites too! Now that I have internet at home, I can spend more time surfing, but I always am at TCS or petfinder I really should look into finding a good site about the TV shows I watch, not like there's a lack of options there

I'm often over at Pure Felinity, it's free and you can breed and show cats and learn genetics.

I second AllRecipes.com!!! I love that site!!!!!! I've made many fabulous meals from there that were quick and simple and tasted soooooo good

I also like to go to some other forums that are specific to me like Glider Central (sugar gliders), scrapbooking and other arts & crafts...

Pogo.com has fun games...

I like to visit Amazon.com to read up on things like books that I want to get some day (my wishlist is like 7 pages long!)

I also check these two every day: http://www.fadedyouth.blogspot.com/ & http://gofugyourself.typepad.com/go_fug_yourself/

Another cool thing that is great for wasting time... You have to have Mozilla Firefox which you can get here: http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/central/ but they have extensions you can download and my favorite is called "Stumble". To set it up you just click on the items that interest you off of a big list then when you are bored you just click the "Stumble" button in your browser window & it will pull up a random website. I've found some really really cool sites this way! Bonus- Firefox is way cooler than all the other browsers- you can have different web pages as a tab in one window rather than opening new browswer windows for each site!

I like:

www.pandora.com - It's a music site, that basically helps you discover other bands or singers you would like, you put in bands you already like and it plays songs from them, and other bands or singers that you may like as well that have similar types of music to your chosen band.

www.celebrity-babies.com - Just a cool site I like that tells you which celebs are pregnant, who's had babies, and pics and stuff.
