September 11 Memorial 

Net Picks:

The Ultimate Holiday Site (by Hallmark) - It might not be a Hallmark Moment but there are holidays that are worthy of noting (with a chuckle). For example, Work Like a Dog Day (August 5th) urges us to take a break from normal work ethics, and "beg for treats, bury your favorite toys, and always keep your eye out for pesky squirrels." 


Copy That! Top Secret Restaurant Recipes (from Foodnetwork.com) - Most restaurants won't give out their recipes, but Food Network has worked out copycat recipes for top restaurant dishes such as Bloomin' Onions, cheesecake pancakes, cheddar biscuits, cinnamon buns,mocha frappes, and more.


7 Rules of Listenging, Really Listening - I've often suspected that when people say they and their partner can't communicate, it means they haven't mastered the art of listening to each other - and it is an art, one that anyone can learn. Here's a very good explanation of how to do it well.


Jobs, Careers and Callings: Deaf and Hard of Hearing People at Work - Hearing-impaired people are interviewed here about their careers, the challenges of their work, their work- arounds for difficulties caused by the impairment, and their advice to young hearing-impaired people seeking work in their profession. This site will help hearing-impaired students see that their disability need not stand in the way of their dreams for the future.


Turn Off the Oven:  25 No-Cook Meals (From Wisebread)


 After Words - Book TV - After Words is "an interview show in which authors of the latest nonfiction books are interviewed by journalists, public policy makers, legislators, and others familiar with their material." By CSPAN
