Jimmy's Favorite Sites
Here are a few sites I have discovered
which are helpful, informative or interesting. These sites relate
to Annapolis, to business or are just worth dropping in for a
casual visit! Let's go surfing and take a look!
I discovered a touch screen watch by Tissot which I failed to
mention in my last article about Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
screens. This little gem sports every feature available on a 21st
century timepiece, and most features can be activated or accessed
by touching the quartz face. Take a look at the watch at a very
organized web site at www.t-touch.com/prima.htm.
Have you ever wondered where Lou Dobbs of CNN fame wandered off
to a few years ago. Lou was financial backer and co-founder of
the web site www.space.com.
Although Lou has rejoined the CNN financial network, the object

and future vision of space from the private sector perspective.
It is a great supplement to my earlier NASA site connection at
We recently adopted a very large Cichlid (9-inch Central American
freshwater fish) or more scientifically, a Cichla-soma Managuense.
While my wife and I have enjoyed our new addition, I have also
enjoyed visiting the pet stores and exploring the Internet to
find new information about our new friend. I found a wealth of
information at www.cichlidfish.com
I also rediscovered the greatest and most realistic virtual fish
(Mopy) at www.virtualcreatures.com.
Check them both out. I'm sure one will be to your liking as well.
Batteries anyone? Last month I went looking for a battery upgrade
and replacement for a Sony digital camera battery. The 1850ma
unit I found through a product search at www.mysimon.com
was sold by www.batteries4everything.com.
This site was well-organized and easy to navigate. The people
were fast and, at $4.50, were cheap on the shipping end. If you
are looking for a charge, go here-I recommend them highly.
Do you need some help around the house? Do you need an on- call
repairman? I received a flyer in the mail and also in one of our
recent Sunday newspapers advertising the Case Handyman at www.casehandyman.com.
I have used them twice, and I am anxiously waiting to continue
down the list of jobs to be done. I explained what I wanted done,
and they laid out the time estimate and material costs and off
they went to procure the materials and do the jobs. They are self-
contained with all tools and ladders. What a pleasant way to get
all my dreaded jobs, which I can never find time for, off the
As always we encourage your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks.
