Elf's Hot List of Internet Sites
In the old days, before any topic was a
Google search away, we used to make hot lists to direct friends to neat
sites we found. I've updated my hot list to sites I check just about every
day as kind of a "favorites" from whichever PC I happen to be on. Here are
some sites I enjoy:
- The New York Times - My primary
- The Milwaukee Journal Sentinal -
- Arlo & Janis - My current
favorite comic. Definitely targeted to the older married crowd, of
which I am one. Great characters including
Ludwig the cat.
- TheCzabe.com - Steve Czaban is the
sports guy who talks to Bob & Brian in the morning. I like his take on
sports and life in general. Between him and the
Journal Sentinal's Sports Page,
I usually know enough to hold my own in male bonding sports discussions.
- Wes Clark's Avocado Memories - A
really fun web collection of photos from Wes Clark's youth growing up in
Burbank, CA in the sixties and seventies. I have done the same with a
lot of old photos of mine here and in some
more hidden spots. Let me know if you want a look. I also keep
an eye on Wes'
Brigham's Blog because
he knows, finds and shares some really interesting information about
Swedespeed R Forum - I got a Volvo V70 R in summer 2010 and found a
great forum to help keep it running. I still miss the
Rennlist Porsche 944 Forum where the good members there taught me a lot about my
944 and cars
in general when I was hanging out here. The Swedespeed R guys are a
good bunch as well.
- Wikipedia - I'm
sure this site is the bane of my brother Jon, a high school history teacher,
but I find it to be a fascinating place to get an overview on anything.
I would never cite something I found there without checking it out, but I've
learned a ton from the contributors.
- My Youtube Page
- This has shortcuts to the few clips I've put out there, but includes the
search window as well. It will be interesting to see what youtube
turns into over the years. My kids love the old Sesame Street clips,
as do I.
- IMDB - The Internet Movie Database.
Is it sad or liberating that anytime you think you recognize someone in a
movie or on TV or when you can't remember who was in a certain movie, you
can look here to confirm or discover all the details?
- e-Bay - 'nuff said. You can
find anything there. I've been picking up all the old, blue Hardy Boys
books I used to read there. Theoretically they are for Jake, but I can
(and sometimes do)
burn through one of those in an hour flat!
- CG Schmidt, Inc. - My employer,
the best General Contractor in the Milwaukee area and beyond. If you
need a school, hospital, office or light industrial building or even an
Art Museum built, be
sure and talk to us!
- White Lake Property Owners Association -
I'm on the board for the Property Owners Association at the cottage and
built this little website.
- Beaumont Ridge Neighborhood -
I used to maintain this for the Homeowners Association, now it's just a
neighborhood interest website.
- Abbot Pennings High School -
A little website I built to remember my old high school which was closed
in 1990 when Green Bay's three Catholic high schools were merged into one.
Don't forget to check your e-mail. I use both
Yahoo for my web-based e-mail. You can contact me
at elfner.web (at) gmail.com if you like.
I'm going to leave it at that for now, but I will keep a few links to some
other sites below. I'm not sure what I'll do with them just yet.
