Wrangler Blue Bell

I wonder how the HTML doc would look like for this site!!! They used the click function to create something fun and interactive.Hover over would be even better, because than you would be just moving your mouse around and the guy would have to follow. It would make it less effortful I think!

I also really like the background music a lot :).

Webdesigner Depot

This is actually a really cool site and there are 30 Desktop and Office Themed Website Designs that I though may be helpful in coming up with ideas for our sites. enjoy! =]
