I work in a very nice office. I’ve got a desk and chair, a large LCD monitor, a file cabinet and a soft, cushy easy chair that I never seem to find time to sit in. It’s upstairs in the front of the house, though, so I keep my windows closed during the day to [...]

Busy today. Stories to edit. Stories to research. Story to write. Still, couldn’t let Friday go by without a fun Favorite Things column. I’ve gathered up some interesting new Web sites.
