time today to sift and sort the delicious page

What is Delicious?

“Delicious is a social bookmarking service that allows users to tag, save, manage and share web pages from a centralized source. With emphasis on the power of the community, Delicious greatly improves how people discover, remember and share on the Internet.

Things you can do with Delicious

Bookmark any site on the Internet, and get to it from anywhere

Instead of having different bookmarks on every computer, Delicious makes it easy to have a single set of bookmarks kept in sync between all of your computers. Even if you’re not on a computer you own, you can still get to your bookmarks on the Delicious website.

Share your bookmarks, and get bookmarks in return

If your friends use Delicious, you can send them interesting bookmarks that they can check out the next time they log in. Of course, they can do the same for you. As you explore the site and find interesting users, you can use our Subscriptions and Network features to keep track of the Delicious tags and users you find most interesting.

Discover the most useful and interesting bookmarks on the web

See what’s hot with Delicious users by checking out our popular tags. By looking at popular bookmarks for a tag, you’ll be able to discover the most interesting bookmarks on the topics you’re most interested in. Browse bookmarks on just about anything from the best programming tips to the most popular travel sites, all in an easy to read format.”

Land of Lost Content

National Museum of British Popular Culture Shropshire

Stella & husband Dave opened their first Museum under the name Rejectamenta on July 21st. 1991 in a redundant twelfth century C of E church in East Wittering, West Sussex.Four years later they moved their growing collection to a near-by tourist attraction at Earnley Gardens where they had more room. Rejectamenta was housed there until the end of November 2002.
Stella originally from Birmingham, and Dave from Cheltenham had always
dreamt of  returning to the West Midlands and again running their own
show. When they discovered the Old Market Hall in Craven Arms for sale they moved heaven and earth and several hundreds of thousands of items –
Their Masterpiece was nearing completion.Rejectamenta had gained an army of  fans during Its eleven years on the south coast, many of whom have visited ‘Land of Lost Content’ which opened on April 18th. 2003. Lots of new recruits have swelled that army since.

Stella and Wayne first met in 1991
shortly after she and Dave opened
their first museum Rejectamenta in
a redundant church in West  Sussex
not far from where Wayne and his
family lived. Wayne and Stella
could often be seen vying with each
other at local car-boot sales.
