Some of you like me, might have the opportunity to listen to music while at work. I listen to streaming audio from a number of different stations depending on my mood, time of day, current crisis, etc. If this fits with your daily routine check out the link below.
Radio-Locator is a very comprehensive radio station search engine on the internet. They have links to over 10,000 radio station web pages and over 2500 audio streams from radio stations in the U.S. and around the world.

An interesting fact/fiction that gets passed email and webs sites are Urban Legends. Stuff that people believe is true but really isn’t. How can you tell what is and isn’t? Before you take any of the stuff that shows up in your email box, not matter who it is from, check out the following site on Urban Legends. The site has a very large listing of these “emails” and goes in depth to explain why or why not you should believe what you receive.
I found some very hilarious items on this site and spent some time investigating more than a few of these Urban Legends.

While you are checking out stuff that may be true or not, ever wondered about what’s really in hair coloring, Silly Putty, Cheese Wiz, artificial snow, or self-tanners? This site by Chemical and Engineering News presents a collection of articles that gives you a look at the chemistry behind a wide variety of everyday products.

If you are like me and a lot of others, you have at least one pet around the house. Sooner or later you will need the following reference.
The Merck Veterinary Manual is the single most comprehensive electronic reference for animal care information. It is brought to you as a service of Merck & Co., Inc., providing quality medical information on a not-for-profit basis for more than 100 years, and Merial Limited, dedicated to producing a wide range of pharmaceuticals and vaccines to keep livestock and pets healthy and productive.
