Believe It or Not!The Ants are Coming!
Actual, unretouched picture of them chasing my cursor before I could escape!
The Ants Are Coming!   5 Star Award
As you know, the weather has been real strange for the past year or so everywhere. In fact, it's been so dry in Texas, the fire ants have resorted to seeking water anywhere they can. A while back, I was working on a new page and a few climbed into my computer looking for water. Now, every time I bring up that page, there they are! They sneek out on my screen, sniff around for a couple of seconds then chase my cursor, thinking it'll lead them to water-they are that crazed! You can't get rid of them, all you can do is try to keep them away from your cursor. They've been trapped in there so long they're so dry that, if you touch one, it just crumbles and disappears. But another just takes its place. The only way to get rid of 'em is to close the window and come back here! If you go there, Watch Out! Remember, close the window to escape!

3D! Get ready to be AMAZED!
Amazing 3D Stuff!5 Star Award
Here are several sites we and others have done that bring that extra element realism to your screen-3D! Some require the red/green Red-Green Glasses glasses everyone is familiar with; others present the images in cross-vision Crossed Eyes form requiring nothing but slightly crossed eyes. Some have both formats. If you don't have the glasses, try the cross-vision images. It's really very easy, just start crossing your eyes until the two images merge into a third image and, Viola!, the image will pop right out of the screen. If you'd like a set of glasses, check your local comic book store; they usually have them for about a buck.
