I dream of old Dean Moriarty. "On the Road", Beat Bible and required reading for any sullen teen wanting to get out of their hick town, finally to make it to the big screen. Brace yourself -- this will either be glorious, or an abomination and sin against nature. more inside

The worst foods for your health You there! Put that French fry down and come out with your hands up! Actually when it comes to bad foods, the French Fry, though a culprit isn't the worst. #1 on the list is a little suspected breakfast item. And zounds what about that fettucini alfredo?

Cold Comfort for Echinacea Fans MedPage Today -- may require registration; the first time I accessed it, it didn't, but the second time it did. So I dunno. I swore by echinacea for years.

Glitterrock is a "screen capping" site where people have been posting entertaining captions for television and film screen shots for several years now. The site is a little hard to navigate, but you can find links to the galleries here. The humor is a little uneven (this is the internet, after all), but when it's good, it's pretty damn funny. Star Wars Caps. Star Trek Caps. Doctor Who Caps.
