The top 10 unintentionally worst company URLs
Attn: EntrepeneursEveryone knows that if you are going to operate a business in today’s world you need a domain name. It is advisable to look at the domain name selected as other see it and not just as you think it looks. Failure to do this may result in situations such as the following (legitimate) companies who deal in everyday humdrum products and services but clearly didn’t give their domain names enough consideration:
1. A site called ‘Who Represents‘ where you can find the name of the agent that represents a celebrity. Their domain name… wait for it… iswww.whorepresents.com
2. Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views atwww.expertsexchange.com
3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island atwww.penisland.net
4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder atwww.therapistfinder.com
5. Then of course, there’s the Italian Power Generator company…www.powergenitalia.com
6. And now, we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South
7. If you’re looking for computer software, there’s alwayswww.ipanywhere.com
8. Welcome to the First Cumming Methodist Church. Their website iswww.cummingfirst.com
9. Then, of course, there’s these brainless art designers, and their whacky website:www.speedofart.com
10. Want to holiday in Lake Tahoe? Try their brochure website atwww.gotahoe.com

This is a view of the the former cotton warehouses that was
Savannah is different from Charleston in that Olgethorpe who founded the city platted the city out with a grid of squares or commons. These are tree lined oases of shade in a city whose temperature was up in the mid 90's yesterday.
We took the hop on/ hop off trolley tour with the driver giving history and corny jokes.
We got off at the River front and later rode the whole tour circuit again just to be able to sit.
This is a picture of the roadway down by the river front. The old ships used these rocks as ballast and would dump them out when they loaded up with cotton. Savannah made roads and walls with them. They are dangerous for me to try to walk across as they are terribly uneven .
One of our trolleys decorated for July 4th. The driver had a stars and stipe shirt too. We came back to our motel after 5 and thought it pure heaven just to shower the sweat off. After we ate, we watched the Savannah fireworks in bed on TV. Sweet!
I was promised a leisurely start today, but he set the alarm and wasn't around to turn it off. He is all ready to pack the car and I'm barely awake and so not dressed. Grrrrrrrr!
I will use NON-VIOLENT means to get going today. Grrrrrrr!

This is the scene from Careyville, TN. This is the llama place. We drove straight from here to Gatlinburg to the Christmas Place.
There must be an important election coming up because every intersection and roadside byway was covered in political signs. By reading the signs I could tell who was the incumbant and who was running opposite. The TV had commercials too. Bob Corkers MOM was saying how honest her boy was.
We drove to Gatlinburg and didn't stay but long enough for me to get my Christmas Place 'fix'. I had a gift certificate and I spent more. The only pictures I have are of the flowers.
I love bright colored flowers. I miss being able to grow the northern flowers and trees in South Florida. Blaine doesn't know a lily from a black-eyed-susan.
This tree had fruit on it. I think it's too early for crab apples. It may be a Hawthorn? I picked some and brought some with me. It's in the bag with the cat nip I picked for Gypsy. Again, more things that don't grow in SoFla.
I had to get a picture of the Savannah bathroom in the motel. I've never seen an under sink arrangement like this in a motel.This seems to be a new one.
Tomorrow we will explore Savannah and hope the fireworks are on the 4th. We've had previous vacations when they set fireworks off days before the 4th for convenience.
Penguin, we should be to your place.......let's see, today is Monday......Wednesday.

explore. They seem to have a very good program and I took
a lot of pictures for ideas. I don't have the wall space, but I still like the ideas.
Our school's theme next fall is 'World of Discovery' and that can include these pirates here.
Today we visited Steve and ThiThi. Their house and grounds are beautiful. Steve has stocked his pond with fish that he feeds dog food everyday. The bass and blue gill gobble it up. It will be very easy for him to capture them when they are big enough to eat.
They have some little fruit trees planted. Little being the main theme and the pine trees are so cute.
We drove forever into Tennessee and are staying at the Hampton with the lake and llamas. Tomorrow on to Gaitlinburg and the Christmas store. Besty gave me a gift certificate at that store. :-)
Tomorrow over the mountains and whatever spot we can easily find on the way home.
lost his luggage and EVENTUALLY they delivered it to the Breakers. They were staying at the campground.
Uncle Sam was on display at one camper's spot. At night it had red, white, and blue lights all around the canopy.Highlights: CJ is a adult and can ride all the rides and pay the adult price.
Cotton candy is only 25 cents!!! This is from the same place that will chare $5 for a hot dog and fries.
Rhonda found a huge diamond ring in the bathroom.
I won mini golf!
The flume ride is gone and their already building next year's huge new ride.
We got to Huntington just as Steve B was closing on the house. The new owners let us tour the empty house as long as we wanted. You can really see the flaws and they will have to invest a lot to make it livable.
I've never seen the garage nor the basement so clean and bare. I took tons of pictures.
We stayed at an AmeriHost located where the Bingham farm used to be.
Dad looked chipper and played Uno with us. Mac-A-Do helped
him play his cards.
We also visited Mom. She's agreeable, but 'leaves' us while we're talking to here. I can't understand what she says, but she seems glad to see us.
Blaine played the piano at both places and Mac danced and danced.
Our hair is the same color! We're both BLONDS.
