Hot Deals is where you can find details of ‘hot deals’ and discount vouchers – but with a twist. These deals and discounts aren’t publicised by the companies, but by visitors to the site.

It’s a great example of how people can use the web to help other people, from the kindness of their penny-pinching hearts.

If you like to do your grocery shopping online you can always find a voucher on this site worth at least as much as the cost of the delivery.

Have A Lie In

A special website review for today. As its the weekend then I don't normally do one on the radio but its the weekend that the clocks go back an hour in the UK which means that everyone gets to spend an extra hour in bed (well most of us). But if you`ve got a lumpy old bed, you might not find your lie in quite so relaxing.

According to a good nights sleep and a comfy bed are vital to your health and well being and if your bed is over 10 years old then it might be time for a new one.

Early hours of the morning. Sunday... 2am in the Uk becomes 1am. Dont forget to put your clocks back an hour as British summer Time officially ends at 2am.

Great songs for playing on the radio at 2am.

R Kelly - If I could turn back the hands of time
Spice Girls 2 becomes 1.

Anyone got any others

The chamber of Horrors

Been dreading it for a few days and been putting it off but finally plucked up the courage to go to the chamber of horrors today.

Actually, I mean the dentist but it amounts to the same thing.

Had toothache for over a week and couldnt tell which tooth it was in and think that both teeth should have been sorted but he removed one and left the other.

Pain is still there but its in the hole where my tooth was and the cheekbone is still swolen after 5 hours.

No wonder I`m petrified of the dentist and what makes it worse is if the pain don't go then I may have to go back and do it all over again.

Anyway, if I`m sounding a bit strange on tonights show then you know why.

Life is one big party according to website So if you want to party like it is 1999, again, point your browser towards the download link and get ready to begin a whole new life, virtually.

VSide is a 3D virtual world where you can listen to music, chat with friends, shop at the shopping centre for clothing and accessories, or just hang out with mates in your apartment. Sounds a lot like real life, which begs the question: why would you need to do this in a virtual way?

Well the answer is fun, plus you will expand your musical tastes and broaden your networking horizons as people from all over the world mingle and chat in an informal atmosphere. The software is all pretty intuitive, with menus and clickies to perform actions like dancing and lounging on the sofa. There are some very funny dances if you scroll through the options. The people I "met" in the clubs and bars have all been pretty friendly and cool.

This is basically just a glorified chatroom, with a definite lean towards people who like music.

Watch out for the live DJ and music events where you can party all night without getting blisters from too much dancing.

One for the Girls

Girls tend to have a sizeable collection of handbags and shoes. is a site to stuffed with fashion, beauty, celebrity and entertainment.

The site is laid out, with dropdown menus beneath the tabs so you can quickly jump to the content you are interested in.

The last tab houses "handbag tv", for those that want to just sit back and watch. It is well filmed and put together, with some great films if you want to look like a fashionista.

Overall the content is as gritty and frank as it gets for a girly rag. If you embarrass easily, you should probably avoid the "sex & life" section where tips are handled tastefully, but are still somewhat forthright.

At the widest magnification click a marker to zoom in and explore other markers, complete with text information, links and point of view photographs from various lunar visits.

There is no download to endure so you can just dive in and have a look round. Use the thumbnails across the bottom to skip through the various entries directly.
