Sites I Frequent

Crossword Corner      The blog site I visit almost every day is Crossword Corner, which discusses the LA Times crossword, my favorite puzzle because, well, that’s the one that’s in our local papers.  I use the SF Chronicle edition, fold the page in quarters then [attempt to] fill it out in ink; I settle for the on-line version if we are traveling.  Crossword Corner explains the answers and has a nice congenial group of commenters.  I’ve been a lurker (I prefer to say a silent participant) at CC’s blog since she started it in January of 2008.

Bill Moyers      The political site I trust the most to be factual and fair is Bill Moyers’.  You can read of his accomplishments in Wikipedia, and be impressed.

Writing:

Gotham Writers     I visit Gotham Writers out of New York City, and love their on-line classes.  Their lessons are especially meaty.  The Humor Writing class was so much fun, I might take it again.  Gotham’s monthly newsletter includes a lot of information.

Poets & Writers     Poets and Writers is reputable.  I should visit more often.

Travel:

OAT               Road Scholar

The travel companies that we use more often than others are Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) and Road Scholar.  I visit both of their sites often, just to daydream about new trips.

Rick Steves  When we went to a Rick Steves talk, I expected him to chat about how to pack a carry-on, but instead, his talk was quite political.  And very interesting, I might add.  It made me want to visit his website, and his TV show on Fascism is just one of the valuable things you can find there.

 

 

Cake Wrecks   If I am in need of a really good laugh.
