If you’ve seen an old time movie you may be familiar with the old photo booths on the midway. (If you remember them without watching the old movies we won’t tell. :-). These were the ones where you sit in the booth, pull the curtain closed, put a quarter (or was it a nickel?) in the slot and snap your picture.

If you have a desktop web cam hooked up you should love this. When you visit this site it automatically starts your web cam. Then just “click” and save. You can take several rapid fire photos and only save those that please you. Then create a link and post it to your web site or paste it in your e-mail.

Almost as good as the old days. Maybe better - you don’t need a quarter!

Don’t you grit your teeth when a perfectly able bodied driver pulls into a space reserved for the handicapped - just to do a little shopping? This great place was created as a community service to end the misuse of handicapped parking spaces and placards.

It allows you to become an anonymous ambassador for the handicapped and report handicapped parking violators when you see this happening. These folks then send these handicapped parking violator reports to every city's Department of Motor Vehicles for appropriate action.

That ought to help clean things up!

It’s always nice to know there’s a “loo” handy when strolling around the streets of London (or for that matter your home town). Now this great place comes to the rescue and rates over 12,000 public bathrooms in more than 100 countries, providing a wealth of information to both travelers and local citizens. Here you can use the handy bathroom locator and also get a detailed evaluation based on cleanliness, safety, operating hours, and whether there is any cost for the facilities.

The Boston Globe called this great place “a Zagat's for lavatories”. CNN, the BBC, USA Today and the Washington Post have also recognized this great place as important to international, national and local travelers!
