Note: I am not an affiliate of any site listed. My purpose is to share the various web sites I find while exploring the information highway.

GET A HUMAN

Here's your answer for by passing those exasperating VRU’s that businesses have implemented to “save money and promote job loss.” Bless their GREEDY little hearts…But never fear---when you short change the masses, their creative juices find a way to be heard!

AVOID A SCAM

This site provides a huge database of scams that try to steal your money or identity and they don't stop there! Is all else fails they will try to give your computer a virus.

CALCULATE FUEL COST FOR YOUR TRIP

Wonder no more about the cost of your trip when it comes to gas. MapQuest has taken all the guesswork out of it for you. They even provide information on station locations and gas prices along the way…

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CONSUMER ADVOCATES

Know your rights on everything from auto fraud to student loans. This site
has extensive information on many different issues of the day. Be sure to
check it out.

GET RID OF JUNK MAIL

Tired of getting all that junk mail? Here is a web site that will help you to eliminate the problem. I still receive mail for my mother who passed away in 2005, and this list provides assistance for that issue too…

GAS BUDDY

Here’s a site that you can utilize for saving money while gassing up. Just plug in your zip code and it will give you locations for the lowest-priced gas. As you may have guessed, the price of crude oil is climbing again. That means by the time the gas stations add their mark up the arrow tips toward thievery.

THE RIP OFF REPORT

A friend of mine directed me to this useful web site for researching complaints on a company I have been dealing with. The site, from several points of view, is principled and provides constructive advice for settling problems with dishonorable and/or inflexible businesses. We have all experienced that service representative from hell. You know--the one who shows no empathy and lacks the ability to think inside or outside that metaphorical box.

You will be shocked (or maybe not) when you begin to read, the deceit and trickery used against consumers. My problem with the company I researched was small in comparison to others. However, they did have a number of serious complaints.

Nevertheless, the site gives one a heads up on some of the well-known and largely patronized businesses. After my own experience and reading what others had to say, it reinforces just how greedy and unethical businesses have become. I have named their affliction the “Greed Ethicanoma,” a new form of cancer that has and continuous to tear down our jobs, wages, finances, and lifestyle.

LET’S SNOOP

Here is a site I really enjoy visiting. You can latterly verify those emails that float around trying to collect on a bogus donation fund, stories on government and political figures, and much more. If you are familiar with the site good for you if not, then you’re in for a treat. They will even send you updates on each new entry added to their database. This site is well managed and all material is researched before committing it to their listings.

Writers are always looking for sites that provide information. You will be able to find many interesting articles here. Enjoy yourself and bookmark this one.

THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS

I know you probably use this site for many of your articles concerning past events in our countries history. There are so many paths to different time eras in the library of congress; Lots of information here to be enjoyed. Pictures, writings and videos, which you can use in your own blogs or HubPages. Most are royalty free and in public domain while others will request that credit be given. If that's the case, they will show who is to receive the credit and and the format to be used. This link is one of my favorites

WHO IS SOURCE

This site, will give you information on domain names. Sometimes the URL will tell you its country of origin. Many times, they do not, and that’s when this web site comes in handy…Give it a try and see if you like it. I use it to get the companies location address so I can run a trace on them through the BBB.

DOMAIN NAMES PERSONALIZE

That’s right; a personal domain name adds a sense of professionalism to your site. It increases recognition, provides a shorter URL and makes it easier for your customer to remember YOU. This is considered one of the most important steps for making money on-line.

WHAT’S COOKING

Last, but not least, this site will keep your taste buds screaming for more. They have actually found a way to duplicate many of the big name restaurant recipes. Some recipes are free and others require a fee. I would suggest you check around for the "Secret Recipes Cook Book" before purchasing from their site. Most of the recipes shown on the web site will probably be in their book.

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create. ~~Albert Einstein

A great list of very helpful sites. The scam site sounds like something to be bookmarked for when you just have to wonder about an offer that sounds too good to be true, or are just curious. The one that offers the restaurant recipes sounds pretty cool too!
