Buck George.

Buck is old enough to remember when links pages were popular on web sites. This was pre-blog, pre-Facebook, pre-Youtube, pre-#hashtag, pre-Millenials. (Anybody remember web rings?)

Links pages made the World-Wide Web possible and navigable—this is Buck's attempt to resurrect them.

Astronomy Picture of the Day – A new picture of something space-related every day. Sometimes they get a little nerdy and over my head, but most of the time the pictures are breathtaking.

Badge-A-Minit – Make your own buttons with their button makers. They're a piece of cake to use and the parts are pretty inexpensive. If you're less than creative you can even buy pre-made button designs.

Declaration of Independence – You know, the founders didn't have too much to complain about given that the colonies belonged to King George. He did what any king would do. (BTW, the U.S. maintains a standing army in over 100 countries that don't belong to us.)
