What other websites do you all visit on a regular basis.

Looking at my "favourites", my most visited ones (apart from this one) are

BBC Sport - football
BBC Weather
Paypal (to check if we've made any sales)
Google (to check t shirt sites and to search for Squat Orange)

That's a really boring list Must diversify a bit - suggestions very welcome....

You are all keen on the weather I found myself thinking a few days ago about the good old days when we didn't know what tomorrows weather would be like! i know they can still get it wrong locally but not often any more. I think I need a holiday i seem to be developing old age thought patterns!

Well i come here far too much, I visit Pekin Bantams and Practical Poultry (along with a few others on here) Intelligent Horsemanship and Tackroom gossip at times but mainly i tend to follow ideas and interests through various ways, depending on what my current interest or need is. Then forget to save them and get irritated when I want to read something again.
