Where Do You Want To Go Today


We all go surfing around the net. There are all the regular stops of major interests whether it is the Washington Post or the Washington Times. Then you hit your favorite blogs and visit a bit just to chat with people of like interests or do a little shopping at Amazon and check the balance at your bank. Maybe you stop for a visit at your favorite webcam for a bit of zen.

But up in the favorites lists are a few oddballs that you have discovered that no one else you know has ever found. You just like them. In addition to all of my music and lyrics sites, book sources, horseracing info, and hundreds of genealogical sites, three of my favorites are shown below. What are your unusual sites?

Puzzleability Free collection of puzzles some one time, some weekly, and one truly great daily game.

The Pixie Pit Play scrabble with friends via email. Very well run site and well worth the $10 a year they ask to cover their costs. No popups. No Spam. Just a good place if you like the game.

Triton Gallery If you like Broadway, Opera and Ballet this is the place to get window cards, posters, and other unusual items from the world of live performances.

Paul Soglin's blog is a fave of mine...he is the former long-time mayor of Madison, Wisconsin, and was a student there during the Viet Nam protests of October, 1967.



Little Steven ROCKS! This page lets us join in on the fun! Little Steven plays in the E Street Band and also plays Silvio on The Sopranos.

This is the page for the venerable Hotel Chelsea on 23rd Street in Chelsea, New York City. Ed Hamilton writes most of the entries here. I stayed there twenty years ago, for a week. There's a great deli nearby!

JAMIE: Some browsers now acknowledge Google's video option. It's even easier to use than YouTube...I just spent a few hours there watching videos of V W buses and Critical Mass bike rides in SF & NYC and all kinds of , as Wally and the Beav would say, "NEAT JUNK ! "
