Featured Friday
Topic: Featured Friday

Social Networking for the Dead might seem a bit unusual but the folks at ObitCity.com have created a destination where the good memories of those who have passed on can be shared.  The extensive site is a labor of love where each submitted obituary is typed into an extensive database that can be easily searched.  With modest beginnings, the site has since grown to include entries from all 50 states.  The volunteer “staff” know how healing sharing words on the life of a departed one can be for a grieving family.

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

The layout provides easy navigation so you can learn more on how to submit an obituary or what’s new on the site.  ObitCity has a section on how they can help you either write an obituary or assist in hosting sites for a funeral homes to get them better exposure. ObitCity.com might seem strange on first pass but I highly recommend you dig a bit more deeply because the site is a tremendous resource.

Check it out today!

Featured Friday: Screamers Archive
Topic: Featured Friday

Wish you could relive your childhood?  Looking for a bit of nostalgia to help make the work day a bit sunnier?  Then look no further than Screamers Archive.  The creator of the site has such a passion for all things cool - especially from the 70’s & 80’s!  The site is a treasure trove of cartoons, movies and toys and you will be sure to find a priceless gem of days gone by that will make you exclaim “I remember that!” with great enthusiasm.

 

 


 

 

I enjoyed seeing the great movie posters of my youth - Goonies, Jaws and Gremlins. Goonies never say Die!  Plus, a whole section on cartoons that remind me of many afternoons spent in front of the TV watching fantastic shows like Thundercats, Voltron and Jem (she’s truly outrageous!)  Are you a classic gamer and lover of such hits like Asteroids or Breakout? After visiting the arcade section of the site, you will be searching online for the nearest arcade to get your fix!  

You will be reminded of backyard days having epic battles between the Transformers and the Imperial Empire.  Not sure who my money was on - Optimus Prime or Darth Vader?  Enjoy this trip to your youthful past and check out Screamers Archive today!

Featured Friday: Smiling Dog Farms
Topic: Featured Friday

Today’s site highlights an amazing group out of Wharton, TX, who provide sanctuary to dogs who have been deemed “unadoptable” or have run out of time at a shelter.  Jay Hellerich and Richard Clements have been making a difference in the lives of these unique animals since 1994 and have since bought a peaceful 37-acre farm to ensure there will always be a place for the dogs.
 

 



Exploring the site you will discover how the sanctuary began and are able to learn more about the dogs currently at the farm.  Though most of the dogs are there to live out the rest of their days, some are available for adoptions and you can learn more about these cuties.  Plus, there is a whole section that details the various ways you can help Smiling Dog Farms.
 
Take a few minutes to check the site out and support a wonderful and caring group!

Topic: Featured Friday

Like Science Fiction? Why not support a fellow Angelfirian by buying his books on Kindle, Nook, PDF, or Paperback or read his screenplay! G.R. Holton has a love of science fiction and uses writing as a form of therapy.

 


Not only has G.R. written science fiction books (e.g. Deep Screams & Soleri), but he has also written up a screenplay which you can read a synopsis of on his website, and he has also acted in "12 Angry Men" as Juror #5! Don't just take our word for it - you can read plenty of book reviews of G.R's books on his website as well to help you make the right choice of which book to read first! G.R. Holton has even created the book design for Cameron's A to Z of which all royalties go to Habitat for Humanity. 

 

Support G.R. Holton if you love Sci-Fi or if you just appreciate an outstanding person such as himself! Visit his site at GRHolton.com.

Featured Friday: Mymsin Japanese Shiba Inu
Topic: Featured Friday

I love Shiba Inus but I have heard that they can be hard to raise or live with. Shiba Inus are beautiful dogs which originate from Japan that have strong personalities. On http://www.mymsinshibas.co.uk you can read all about the webmaster's history with Shibas as well as great tips for living with and caring for Shibas.

 


 

You can also find out some interesting facts about Shibas in the "What If?" section. For example, did you know that Shibas are highly in tune with you when you're pregnant and may even know before you do!? Weird! And then of course, the best part of the website, looking at the many, many pictures of the Shibas! Have fun!

 

If you want your site featured here next Friday, submit your site at featuredsite.angelfire.com!
