Potpourri.






The dictionary defines Potpourri as, "a collection containing a variety of sorts of things."


Other words that mean essentially the same thing as Potpourri are, "assortment, mixture, mixed bag, miscellany, miscellanea, variety, salmagundi, smorgasbord and motley."


Whatever you wish to call it, this is a collection of links that, aside from simply being blindness-related in some way, probably have nothing else in common with one another, but which should prove to be fun, interesting and even entertaining nonetheless. And who knows? Some of them could even prove to be useful as well!


But be advised, Blind World does not necessarily endorse nor recommend anything on these pages; they are listed here strictly for informational and entertainment purposes only.


But feel free to enjoy them anyway!
