Free Rice and Visual Thesaurus

Last nite my friends were over for dinner. I mentioned the many web sites that are so intriguing and well worth some time. I opened Free Rice without knowing my friend is a wordsmith. He really was buzzing along, and getting most of the correct answers. I must admit, cheat a bit, using the Visual Thesaurus. I love it's visual representation of words, and related synonyms and antonyms are so helpful. My preferences are set to also give me the French words. Finally I was able to get him away from the computer so we may have dinner. I must admit, I get such pleasure in introducing the gems of the web to folks he enjoy and can learn from the sites.
