Hi everybody,

I think it could be interesting for everybody to see, what links others often use on the internet. I don't think of work related links but on sites you just visit to have some fun. All languages are welcome and maybe we could all find out about new interesting and amusing sites.

One of my favourite links is this one:

Probably everybody knows Sudoku, at least here in Germany it's quite en vogue, and I use it to relax and think things over...

Curious about other links....

With the letters you can make several words until you find out the biggest one and can go to the next level.

It's in Portuguese, though...

Hey there, Oct 13, 2006

thanks for the links! I tried all of them (I even tried to make up a Portuguese word, but unfortunately I have to work a bit on my language skills first, I assume) I also liked the link Denyce mentioned, the videos and especially the cooking link as I love cooking too!

Postsecret Oct 17, 2006

This is one of my favorites. A blog where people send their secrets in a post card. Some are very sad, some are just hillarious.
