Play Poker Online

Play Poker | is an Online Poker site review site, that is to say it reviews online gambling sites, especially those that cater to poker players. The site also has many poker related articles, of which I in particular enjoyed the article about the Poker Face and became a little more enlightened about the habits of gamblers while playing poker.

I also discovered the sites blog, All poker sites blog via a link to the post about the New Laws governing online gambling in the US, which makes it seem like online poker and online gambling in general is about to go through a transition due to the passage of some pork barrel legislation. Trying to control online poker via legislation is one of the stupidest, wasteful things the idiots in Washington can do. If you want to do something, end a war or find a cure for a disease, or try to place some regulations on the online gaming industry that has lured our children in for countless hours of wasteful online gaming at a time. Many a teenager spends more time in these virtual online gaming communities such as World of War Craft, Kingdom of Loathing, or Everquest, than doing school work…could this be a reason that China produces 10X the number of Engineers than the US? If an industry ever needed regulating, the online gaming industry which preys upon our vulnerable teenagers is just such an industry. Should these games not have a time limit that each juvenile player is aloud to play per day? Parental Controls should exist, and be readily available only to the parents.

Sorry for the digression…returning to the subject of this post, the online poker site review site. Online gambling, and online poker sites provide a service that apparently was and is needed or it would not be such a successful endeavor. The US Gamblers will find a way to get their online gambling needs met…legally or illegally. Not that I have ever gambled online, it is not and will not be one of my chosen past times, but far be it from me to tell tax paying adults what to do with their free time. While it is still legal in the US, please stop by and read up on some online poker sites and make a more informed choice about which poker site to visit to play poker online.

100 Lists Web Directory Logo

I was on one of my favorite directory related sites last night, the Directory Critic, when I came across the quality directory, which I discovered, is much more than a general directory. The home page of the directory has a simple, yet stylish look. Along the left side of the page are the top ten sites, then directory categories are along the right. The100lists is a W3compliant website, which has a mission to make the WorldWideWeb a better place.

I also like the SEO Blog feature of the site which has some very insightful posts about the Internet, SEO, Page Rank updates, and where they also have the post about the site of the month for the directory. This is where I first heard that Google page rank updates are on the way…I can hardly wait. Oh, I am one of the people who thinks it is important, but for now, has

Free Directory Submissions to

Free submissions to the directory have ended…we made regular submissions a low price of 2 dollars per regular listing, 1 dollar for reciprocal links (we prefer to have three way links) We decided to end the free submissions and to put a price on the listings because we have gotten way to many free submissions, and it is taking way too long to accept submissions in a timely manner while checking each submission to make sure it is a quality site.

All sites that have submitted up to this time will be processed as time permits.

Transformers, Cable Lighting, and Other Home Lighting Needs Logo

The 1000th site listed in goes to, which is an online lighting super store with over 1,000 lighting products. Some of the product lines sold at include Eurofase, Light Waves Concepts, Halco, Futura Lighting, Orbit Home, Lightech, and Hatch Transformers. Lightingfx’s list of satisfied lighting customers is quite impressive. The site also has a lighting picture gallery for customers to post pictures of their lighting projects.
Biosfera Light
While browsing through the site, I am letting my imagination run with possible lighting options for my office. I love the idea of track lighting or maybe a cable lighting system. Lizzie, my better half, is more practical, and prefers simple lighting like table or floor lamps. I spotted a Biosfera table lamp, pictured above, which would add a real touch of class to the office.

If you have a space that is poorly lit check out They have a wide selection of lights in many different price ranges, and for many different areas of your home or office. Give them a call or send them an email to see if they can help you out with your lighting needs.

Blueluxe is an interesting site. The site sells really fine jewelry, but I first came across the site via its directory. I think it is a great way for a site to get more traffic, via a directory.
