Thanks to Lynn B. for sending this screen cleaner program. She writes, "I don't know about you, but I have never found a screen cleaner that totally worked. At last, I have one and I thought I would share it with you." It did a fairly good job on my screen. I highly recommend it.
I love this site! Get 3 days' worth of XM Radio on your computer for free. These are good. I was impressed with the quality mixes of music and the morning DJ's at U-Pop (Channel 29). I want it permanently. XM Radio. (Click on the "Listen Now" words at the top right of the screen, then click on the "3-Day Free Trial" option after that.

I think these are from Worth1000.com, which holds contests for Photoshop-modified images (and more). Here are my favorite photos (after going to the link, scroll down to see images). I wish I was half as talented as these folks. I can see where some of these images would cause a whole slew of urban legends.

Chocolate & Candy Sushi.
THAT'S my kind of sushi! I once had chocolate shrimp - real shrimp with a
less-sweetened chocolate -- interesting, but not on my list of must-haves,
