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.

Since 1948,
this Tennessee institution has been serving up world famous ribs to Memphis residents. You can get a lot of information from the website at www.hogsfly.com/index_main.html although, at this writing, you can only order (minimum 2 slabs) by calling 1-888-Hogs Fly. I never get tired of trying new rib places. Bon appétit!

I recently noticed a charitable solicitation in The Washington Post asking for financial assistance related to a medical mission to perform cleft palate and lip repairs. These medical conditions in poorer countries with less educated populations can subject the family and affected child to even more poverty and disgrace. A surgical procedure that costs just $250 can be of great assistance. Go to www.smiletrain.org where all the facts, figures, pictures and some of the stories of the 63,576 children are shared. They are a worthy addition to your charitable giving list for 2003.

While looking for shareware programs, I found www.use4. com/lotto/analysis.html. This site features a mathematical shareware program developed to assist you with the selection of lotto numbers. The graphs and charts go into great detail on the history of each number selected. You can update the existing data base of selected numbers from all states to refine the selection process even further. This is a shareware program than can be downloaded and tried before purchase, and this might be your home edition of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire." What do you have to lose?

A three-generation, 80-year- old Italian bakery in downtown Philadelphia can be found at www.termini.com. This Philadelphia tradition could be the answer to your next gift dilemma. Baskets, boxes and tins of every conceivable Italian cookie, from a couple pounds to 10 pounds, are available for shipping. Old Philly and Italy are just a click away.

Thanks to my Annapolis son and the recent blizzard, I discovered this camera at the Annapolis city dock: www.annapolis.com/cam/citydock.php updates every 10 seconds and provided me constant access to road conditions in downtown Annapolis. The Middleton Tavern was slightly out of view or the canopy collapse might have been recorded. There are other highway camera links off of this page as well. Check this out the next time you're shut in by weather.

As always we encourage your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks.

Last time we asked, "How many past issues of Inside Annapolis Magazine do you have? " Out of all the responses, we found that most of our readers keep at least 3 issues of Inside Annapolis Magazine around the house, but a couple of our readers have over several years of issues! We're glad to hear that so many of you stay with us!

Thanks to all those that voted!
