I often find helpful websites or apps as I am talking with friends or reading online. I came across some in the last few weeks that I thought would be worth sharing.
So many of us today automatically go to Google when we need a question answered. But did you know there are actual experts that you can go to as a resource? The Library of Congress, the largest library in the world, offers free research assistance by experts. You can send a specific question to a specialist, ask a general question or just browse through their frequently asked questions. There are many subjects found on the site including business, genealogy and local history, geography, newspapers and prints and photographs to name a few. It’s an invaluable resource.

If you’re trying to plan your next vacation and need help figuring out the best way to get from one location to another, check out the site below. The Rome2rio app can be used on your computer or phone and gives you the best options to get from point A to B and even C. It also allows you to compare different options (plane, train, car etc.) to see which is best for your needs. The app can help once you are at your location to find different routes to a specific landmark or another city or town.
I love to find new recipes online to try at home but scrolling through to find the actual recipe or ingredients is frustrating. There are so many advertisements and pop ups that it can be hard to find. This website below makes it so much easier. You just copy and paste the URL of a recipe and it gives you just the ingredients and recipe. That’s it! It’s a great tool for all cooks and bakers out there.
If you’ve been binge watching movies and shows like many people have lately, check out the Flick Metrix website below. This site rates movies and TV shows currently on Netflix. In addition, you can filter and find shows and movies on other platforms like Amazon Prime, Disney+, HBO and more.
I hope you enjoy these new sites as much as I do. And if you know someone that might find these helpful, please feel free to share! Have a great weekend!
