I don't have too many links listed here because I am really picky about the sites that I frequent. Therefore, if they are listed here, that means I think very highly of them.
Anyone who reads my book reviews knows I am seriously into Dover books. The Thrift Editions start as low as $2.00, plus I always get stuff on sale and almost always have an additional coupon for either dollars off or a percent discount. Shipping is free with an order of $50, or sometimes $25.
I have been buying products from Dover for over forty years. They began mostly with reprints of books that had gone out of copyright, and could reissue them really cheap. When I was working on my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in music, I bought tons on Dover music editions for a fraction of what the original would have cost.
Unfortunately, I can't say I feel the same about their current personnel. They often make really bad decisions. Using Google Preview rather than See Inside was one of the worst choices they ever made. I am still mad about that, and yes I have complained. There is often a distinct lack of professionalism and even lack of knowledge about their products. Their website is full of errors. At one point, I began emailing them to point out those errors, but the emails were so frequent, and it only seemed to annoy them and frustrate me. I now contact them as little as possible. But the worst thing they ever did was when they changed to their new website and "accidentally" deleted all eight of my saved shopping carts, which I had since 2009. I had them all organized into categories such as coloring books, Creative Haven books, literature, etc, so when something went on sale I could easily notice it, and transfer it to another shopping cart that I was ready to purchase. I am still working on replacing them.
With the new website came the offering of eBooks. Let me give my readers some strong advice here. Before you actually PAY for a Dover eBook, you can most likely find it for FREE at Project Gutenberg.
As of this writing, Project Gutenberg has over 48,000 digitalized books for just about any eReader, including Kindle, or you may read online with your desktop, laptop, or tablet, all for free. Add to that their affiliates, and you have about 8 million books available! FREE!! This is an ongoing and ever expanding project and it is huge. Before you ever purchase any eBook, check out this site first. For help in using Project Gutenberg and their affiliates on an eReader or any computer, please refer to my newsletter My NEXT Step in Technology
This award-winning documentary by Michael Murphy supplies essential information about the geoengineering/chemtrail atrocity, and who is benefiting.
This full-length (80 minutes) Movie/Documentary is a must-see. It contains indisputable and particularly damning evidence against government/military atrocities.
These are two more sites that expose the atrocities of geoengineering and other government/military/corporate horrors.
This is an internal link from this site, supplying you with a great deal of information on seed companies of which I do or have done business. None of them sell GMO seed, and many are organic or carry organic products. While perhaps costlier, I thoroughly recommend buying seed directly from companies rather than retail stores because they supply so much information and a vast variety of seeds and products.
As you have probably noticed, I am really into fancy fonts and dingbats. They decorate my pages all over this site. In fact, I have so many
downloaded into my font file, I had to get rid of some system fonts that I never use or that could not be used on the web. I put them in a junk folder
on my external hard drive. Nearly all the cool fonts I have are from this website, and all are free for non-commercial use. They have
thousands of fonts to choose from and are always getting new ones. It is a really fun site. I have a tendency to get stuck there for long periods, so I
try to stay away unless I just desperately need a new font.
If you have never loaded new fonts, here's a tip: dafont packages theirs in a zip folder. When I go to their page, I right-click on the font I want, then click "Save Target As" (for Internet Explorer), then I save to my desktop. I have a font-file short-cut on my desktop. I simply open the zip folder with a double-click, drag out the font to my desktop, then right-click to copy it into my font-file. That's not the way you're "supposed" to do it, and when I first started getting new fonts, I went through the whole rigamarole of using the Installation Wizard, etc.. What a time-waster. In any case, be sure to check out this website. When you have LOTS of time. It can be addictive.
This is a free Photoshop-type program. Is it as good as Photoshop? Well, no, but when you compare the price (free), unless you are someone who works with graphics and imaging on a professional basis, this program is pretty darn good, and capable of doing waaaay more than the average person would ever need. They supply tutorials on every single feature on the program, and there are a vast number of features for you to work with or play with; (I recommend playing!!).
If you have ever browsed through my coloring book art, you have no doubt noticed that I am serious about my coloring books. I painstakingly research whatever subject I'm coloring to ensure my pictures are accurate. Along the way, I have found some essential sites for particular books or types of books. Here I will list the site and the coloring book(s) for which I found it useful.
I don't go to The Weather Channel website for weather info because they tell a lot of lies and seem more interested in drama than accuracy. However, I love their themed travel photos. Here are some of my favorites.
