You'll Thank Me Later!

I got an interesting email the other day from a lady who was promoting www.howstuffworks.com. I was THRILLED. HowStuffWorks is my husband's all time favorite website! If you have never been there, you are missing out, seriously. If you have ever had a question about how you do anything, you can find it there. From baking the perfect cookie to how does the 3d TV work. They quizzes and "Incredible Facts" that really are what they say. I found the section on picking locks especially interesting... I would!Anyway, in the email she told me about a few features HowStuffWorks.com was doing for the summer/4th of July/ and other great stuff and asked me to tell you about it. I said, "SURE!" Now, I am going to cut and paste parts of the email, because she words it so much better than I could!

Oooh, yay! Now I get to look stuff up and then spout it out later and pretend I'm really that fabulously clever because I know all of these amazing facts. Thanks! ;-)
