I have discovered one of the best things on the internet. Cams and Live Video Cams. There are evidently hundreds and probably thousands of cameras all over the world and we have access to them on the internet!!
Some of the cameras take still shots and update at predetermined intervals. Some are live videos.
This is my favorite:
Someday, I plan to go to this camera and have friends meet me there on the computer at an appointed date and time. Check out the other cameras around NYC!
I also enjoy watching the remote areas of Alaska.
There is even a camera that updates, I think every 5 minutes, on Mount St. Helen!
There are MANY more websites that offer more of the same. If you don't have anything to do, go look around the world - LIVE!
If you find some that really interest you, send them to me and I will post the link!
