Vatican in English


As the Vatican is about to elect a new Pope, I thought it would be interesting to have a look at the Vatican site. Even if your interest is more historical than religious, this is an interesting site. www.vatican.va/phome_en.htm


More on the election


You may want to check out the Wikipedia, but with the usual provisos about the accuracy of the content. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papal_election


even more on the election


A detective thriller based on a plot to blow up the Vatican will no doubt offend some sensibilities, but Dan Brown's Angels & Demons contains plenty on the Vatican, papal elections and papal history. http://public.web.cern.ch/Public/Content/Chapters/Spotlight/SpotlightAan... and www.johnlangdon.net/New_Pages/Angels_Demons.htm


Lego disneyland


Lego meets Disneyland. I am not certain how much of the Disney kingdom is recreated here, but there are a lot of pictures. All sorts of theme parks and buildings made famous at Disneyland have been lovingly recreated using Lego. Um, yes. I suppose if you are out of work and have nothing better to do. www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=118683


Best of both worlds?


Ever wonder what would happen if you put Yahoo! and Google together? Yagoohoogle, of course. Type in something you want to find and it returns a split screen: Google on one side, Yahoo on the other. http://yagoohoogle.com/
