POIIs...Points of Internet Interest

Here are a few interesting things I have discovered in my internet wanderings...

Theo Jansen's Strandbeests - It is amazing what this man can do with a bit of PVC pipe.  Truly incredible wind-powered kinetic sculptures.  I love how he says that designing them has giving him an appreciation for the design by The Creator.

Meal Planning with Google Calendar - something I have discussed here before.  Since acquiring a smartphone, I am trying to implement this again.  There are great links to other articles with advice on this, too.

Meal Planning Resources - great list of sites

Handy Reading Level Lists - I always find these little lists helpful when trying to direct my young readers.

Colleges and Universities that Offer Free Courses Online- another great web resource.  This one links to complete college courses available online.

Amy, I got a Samsung Intercept through Virgin Mobile. Virgin Mobile has a great plan that is $25/month for unlimited text and data plus 300 minutes. I knew I wanted an Android phone and the Intercept was the only one that Virgin Mobile had. I love what an android phone can do, but this particular model is very slow and often freezes up on me even to the point of causing me to miss calls. So, I don't know that I would recommend it even though it is a great deal. A similar plan through Verizon was going to be around $100 with taxes and fees.
