Less is More

Sometimes the simplest Flash app is the most memorable. I received an email this week entitled “If you’ve ever wondered how a mouse pointer actually worked….” and this link: http://www.1-click.jp/

A tiny Flash app with the why didn’t I think of that feeling. 🙂

You Grow Girl

Not a Flash site but definitely one of my favourite sites to visit! Even if you’re not into gardening, you’ll appreciate the wonderful photography.

Launched by Gayla Trail in February 2000, www.yougrowgirl.com has grown into a thriving online community that speaks to a new kind of gardener, seeking to redefine the modern world relationship to plants. This contemporary, laid-back approach to gardening places equal importance on environmentalism, style, affordability, art, and humour. ..

Your mobile phone can help fight global warming

If you have a used mobile phone, you can now return it to any Bell store across the country. Bell will donate $1.00 from the return of each used mobile phone to WWF-Canada’s climate change conservation efforts. Returned mobile phones will be reused or recycled, reducing the accumulation of e-waste in landfills.

In Canada, e-waste is now the fastest growing segment of solid waste. Bell has collected 232,000 phones since 2003, diverting 33 metric tons from landfill.
