Here are some photos, but they’re spliced up in puzzle pieces. Try to put them back together. This online jigsaw puzzle site is a challenge to beat the clock. It’s tough.

Give it a try.

I just returned to this site after some time. It’s not new, but interesting to see some of the views about professors at Rochester Community and Technical College.

It’s a ratings site with the ratings by students. It can be a mix of good, bad and ugly with helpful comments or vindictive depending on how the student did in the class.

But it’s always interesting to look up what others say.

Web Urbanist is a fun stop for a weird mix of art. The site is described as one for architecture and alternative art. And it lives up to the billing, such as its 20 Creative Artistic and Geeky Cake Designs. One’s of the Starship Enterprise crew. Scout out the archives for an interesting mix.
