Need A Urinal?

Check’m out before you go. Google continues to raise the bar with the Google Maps Directory.
Its too bad these folks retain so much information about what you are doing when you use the tools. While it is fair for them to exact a price for all these nifty freebies the wise searcher will alternate searches among many of the search engines, regularly delete the related cookies and, yes, search anonymously when possible.

Friday Ark

Cats, Dogs, Spiders and ? every Friday.
We’ll post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?
We will add your post to the list if you do one of the following:

  • Leave a comment or trackback to this post,
  • Use the Carnival Submission Form,
  • Email Modulator or
  • Our extensive staff finds it during our weekly search of the web

Of course, if our staff goes on strike then we will link only those posts someone tells us about.
Check back regularly for updates throughout the day on Fridays and somewhat less frequently over the weekend. We seldom add links after Sunday’s Carnival of the Cats goes up.
Dog folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Dogs hosted by Mickey’s Musings.
Cat folks: remember to submit your links to the Carnival of the Cats which goes up every Sunday and the 71st edition will be hosted this week by Your Moosey Fate.
Bird folks: Remember to submit your links to I and the Bird: A Blog Carnival for Bird Lovers which will be hosted August 4 by B and B.
And, check out Laurence’s fine graphical analysis of Friday Ark boardings.
Arkive editions of the Friday Ark.
Note: Haloscan is bouncing a lot of trackbacks today.
Note 2: Regarding next weeks Ark (8/5): Our staff will be with poor or no access from about mid day through the weekend. Comments, trackbacks and emails received by late morning will get on the main passenger list Friday. Late arrivals may not get boarded until Sunday night or Monday. It is doubtful that we will have any time to board folks to do not tell us they are ready.
