Sites of the Week: November 16, 2013

“If you don’t build your own dream, someone will hire you to help them build theirs.”

Dhirubhai Ambani

Factoid: In 1963, there were only 350 Secret Service agents, and the agency had a budget of $5.5 million. Those numbers have climbed to 3,500 agents and $1.5 billion today.

Now on to this week’s sites. This week, I’m sending out three ‘Site of the Week’ recommendations.

JFK Assassination Video

I promise this will be my last mention of the Kennedy assassination for awhile—perhaps not until the 100th anniversary. This 15-minute video begins with the Kennedys’ arrival on November 22, 1963 at the Dallas airport and ends at Parkland Memorial where he was pronounced dead.

Tucson Tamale Company

If you like tamales, you need to check this site out. The Tucson Tamale Company Web site has an Online Store featuring almost 50 kinds of tamales ranging from traditional to vegan, breakfast and even dessert. Most are only $3. We’ve been fans for a few years now and regularly order tamales for ourselves and friends. The tamales are delivered by FedEx 2-day and arrive still frozen in a Styrofoam cooler. The company claims their tamales can be stored for 6 months, but we have no firsthand experience since ours are always eaten well before then. The tamales microwave in just minutes. Add a side of beans and/or salad and you have a delicious, easy and inexpensive dinner. Joe Bob says “Yum!”


This site is so cool. It features dozens of HD 360 Livecam views of multiple locations in Switzerland, France, Austria, Norway and Aspen, Colorado. Select a location and a map is displayed. When you click a location, a preview window opens. Click a second time to open the panorama. The interactive view allows you to scroll left or right and zoom in and out.

Ernie Orr sez “Check em out!”
