Y'all have any good URLs (note lack of apostrophe in acronym plural) to share urbi-et-orbi-wise?
Every so often I run across a pearl. Today's is a searchable poetry archive:

Hi Anna,

Strange to see this crop back to the top of the list after so long - but I just read it for the first time and had the following two URLs:

http://www.dublinwriters.org/ - A writer's workshop

http://www.traditional-poetry.org/ - a site for traditional poetry (duh!) A friend of mine (Patrick Walsh) contributes regularly.

Brick, thanks for your contributions -- and for resurrecting this topic!

Ok, here's another one, a fun one: The Dialectizer. It's pretty good. You type in some text, or give it an URL, and it'll reproduce it in any of half a dozen dialects (more to come, they say).
http://rinkworks.com/dialect/

Here's my first sentence, rendered in Redneck:

“Thanks fo' yer corntribushuns -- an' fo' resurreckin' this hyar topic! Fry mah hide!”

(I kinda got a giggle out of that gratuitious “Fry mah hide”)

Here's the site that brought me to AWAD - a veritable banquet for verbivores!

David,
This one looks so good, I didn't even take time to
finish the list before adding it to my favorites.
Thanks, Friend!
