Are you addicted to the internet? You can find out, online. The Center for On Line Addiction has an internet addiction test that will tell you if you've got a problem... if you do, they'll tell you how to get help.

If you're addicted to snack-food, this site could be a problem... snax-dot-com devoted to all things salty and crunchy.... check out the recipe page... make some potato-chip chicken, or potato chip and pretzel pie.

Burn off those calories with a little safari... At Africa-Dot-Com, journey through a huge photo-gallery, filled with breathtaking images, check out a live view of Capetown's Table Mountain, or hit the map and plan a real safari.

The Virginia Department of Transportation is not the only state agency accused of threatening the environment.
A report in the Richmond Times-Dispatch says the Department of Corrections, Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia have all been cited by the Department of Environmental Quality for running afoul of environmental restrictions.

Gilmore last week ordered a criminal investigation of V-DOT because of two environmental violations.
