Featured Friday: Wachusett Paranormal Research Group
Topic: Featured Friday

To get into the Halloween spirit, today's featured site is all about ghosts and the paranormal - awesome! Wachusett Paranormal Group was created by Certified Paranormal Investigator, Shelly Moore Caron, and her husband, Investigator In-training, Dave Caron. The Carons and team will investigate your house or business if you believe any paranormal activity is afoot.


The WPRG website introduces you to the team and will soon be posting evidence from their investigations! You can even read their interview that was in the Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper which covers why they got into the paranormal, how 90% of all claims can be debunked with scientific evidence, and even how claims increase in the fall and winter because it's darker and people are spending more time inside of their houses. 


Check out WPRG for yourself at WachusettParanormal.com - if you're in the area, you can request for them to investigate a haunted happening in your home, but first you have to fill out an extensive form which will help in determining if you have a legitimate claim or are just trying to pull their leg. They're also looking for new members! Investigators, technicians, and historical researchers can all become a part of WPRG, but only if they are serious and aren't just looking to have fun! (I would love to be a guest investigator, if they'd have me)


Happy Hauntings everyone! Submit your site to be featured next week at featured-site.angelfire.com (bonus points if you're Halloween themed!).

Featured Friday: Neighborhood Pet Services
Topic: Featured Friday

I love dogs. I am jealous of anyone who gets to spend their work day playing with and taking care of dogs. I am incredibly jealous of this week's Featured Friday site's webmaster, Laura Kokoski. Laura is the owner of Neighborhood Pet Services in Western Massachusetts and will walk your dog, pet sit your cat, or just visit your animals during the day to be let out or fed if you have to be out of the house and feel bad leaving them cooped up.


Not only will Laura walk, play with, and feed your pet, she's also an trainer and can teach your pooch some manners! With numerous training seminars under her belt, you can trust that Laura will teach your dog right from wrong - right in the comfort of their own home! Additionally, Laura has been training service dogs since she first became interested in NEADS (National Education for Assistance Dog Service) in 1992. 


Visit neighborhoodpetserv.angelfire.com to read more about Laura's work with animals, testimonials, and of course, view pictures of the cats and dogs she cares for!

Featured Friday: JefferyGuide
Topic: Featured Friday

Similar to last week's Featured Site, Rusty's Cage, this week's Featured Friday is a website full of entertaining information. JefferyGuide has something for everyone. Are you a fan of Doctor Who (like me)? Then you will find a great resource of Whovian information (I've spent a lot of time in this category already!). Not a sci fi fan? Not a problem. Maybe you'll find enjoyment looking through the Cash Cab or Iron Chef pages. There are even just general pages like "Everyday Links" and "Everyday Art." If you're looking to spend a lot of time on the Internet, THIS is the place to start!


All along the left-hand side of the website are the categories that JefferyGuide focuses on in alphabetical order so you can find exactly what you're looking for (or easily browse if you're not in search of anything specific). Webmaster Dave Jeffery even lists his email in case you want to request a link you want to see put on his site. Spend some time browsing the useful and most popular links on his site and see for your self what an amazing amount of time and effort Dave Jeffery has put into JefferyGuide!

Featured Friday: Trash To Treasure For You
Topic: Featured Friday

I love HGTV and anything that has to do with home renovation. When Dan first started building his website on Angelfire, trash2treasure4you.net, I thought it was such a great concept - taking old, unwanted pieces of furniture, either found at a yard sale or in some cases on the side of the road, and making them back into great pieces of furniture that are possibly much better quality than those that you pay hundreds for in stores today!


All created with the Angelfire builder, this website does a great job at displaying different techniques you can use to turn a mirror from tacky to classy and rejuvinate furniture bought at a yard sale. Watch videos, flip through a gallery of projects, read through some tips & ideas, and even submit your own photos of your projects. 


Visit Dan's website at www.trash2treasure4you.net and learn a thing or two about turning trash into treasure!

Featured Friday: Rusty's Cage
Topic: Featured Friday

I thoroughly enjoy reading books, watching movies, and watching TV but I tend to be one of those people that prefers to read a review first so as not to waste my time (or money!) watching a bad movie or reading a bad book (I'll just record TV shows and delete them if I don't like them). This week, we are featuring a site that I just may have to bookmark so that I can figure out exactly what I should read, watch, or even listen to. RustysCage.com is an entertainment wonderland full of reviews, recaps, and even some general gripes!


A few things that convinced me that this site was great was that:

1) They recap all of the award shows so I can easily know who all the winners all without sitting through hours of boring speeches, possible dissapointments, and a lot of ads!

2) The review of the movie "Unknown" was exactly how I felt about the movie! The final sentence in the review made me laugh: "There is no doubt this film is an action packed advertisement for the Mercedes-Benz brand name" (If you haven't seen the movie and don't understand this, "Unknown" makes it seem as though Mercedes are the only cars available in Germany). Too bad I didn't read the review before I watched almost a 2 hour car commercial!


So what does RustysCage.com's webmaster have to say about the site? "We have been working extremely hard to promote our website to take it to the next level with SEO and similar methods. Also, we are soon moving cross-country and will lose much of the local traffic we have gotten in Buffalo." It is clear just clicking through the endless pages of music, book, movie, and TV reviews plus comical gripes, recaps, and even pop culture obituaries that this site has had a lot of effort put into it! We at Angelfire highly recommend Rusty's Cage and think you should check it out!
