Two Sites You Could Probably Live Without...

Every once and a while you come across an island in the middle of the lagoon of the internet that really isn’t inhabitable but makes a nice place to pull ashore for a picnic. Bloggerman is now happy to share with you two such scenic locals.

Flightaware is a site that I stumbled upon today as I was trying to track somebody’s return from a recent business trip. No I’m not stalking Bill Gates again (although I have thought about it in the past). You can use the little control box on the left side of the screen to track a flight by airline and number or even destination/point of origin. Furthermore you can even track private flights. I looked at the records for the closest airport to my residence (Montgomery County Airpark) and found that there a quite a few flights out each day to places like New York City’s 30th st heliport and Mexico Memorial in Missouri.

Cake Wrecks

“When professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong” is the tagline to this daily updated blog where you see the wacky, the wild, and the “what the @#$@#$@#” of cake decoration. My question after seeing some of these crazy cakes (and by all means, take a lot of time to filter through the backlog that you’ve missed since the site launched) is how come there aren’t more news stories about bakery owners and pastry decorators getting assaulted with piping bags full of leftover icing?

Everybody have a safe and healthy Labor Day holiday and we’ll be back on Tuesday!
