One more news siteJanuary 4, 2011 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #726945WolfishMusingsParticipant
Top 5 (in no particular order and excluding the CR):
Google Reader — I practically live here. I’m subscribed to a *lot* of RSS feeds (more than I actually have time to read), and Google Reader does an excellent job of organizing it all for me.
Facebook — I keep in touch with friends and family quite extensively through FB.
Wikipedia — Yeah, I read a lot of that as well. Usually pretty good for when I need a quick fact or some basic background information on a subject.
Google Docs — I use Google Docs quite extensively.
(My mail provider) — obvious

Can I choose more than five? Do you want those that I frequent most or those that I enjoy best?
In no particular order, those that I frequent most (other than work and mail):
1) Twitter Feeds (That’s where I get my news)
2) Drudge Report (Where I get a kick out of Matt’s intrigue)
3) Huffington Post (Where I visit the planet of aliens)
4) Real Clear Politics (Where I read up a bit)
5) Wikipedia (Where I spend my time reading/writing – when I’m not in the mood of debating the libs)
There are many more sites I frequent, but you placed a limit. 🙁January 5, 2011 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #726964justsmile613Participant

How could I have forgotten two that I visit and spend time on:
Facebook (see previous threads for my feelings on this)
Geni – through which I’ve connected to lots of extended branches, and found out I’m connected to Rashi. Fascinating.January 6, 2011 3:11 pm at 3:11 pm #726975pumperMember

I’m very dissapointed with Gymboree these days. They used to have such cute, adorable stuff and now I can’t find anything but nebby clothing on that site (or in stores).January 6, 2011 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #726978crdleMember
A woman outside brooklyn- im also on Geni, but I got stuck, and unless someone in your family made a tree tht goes further back than yours, how do you find more info?January 6, 2011 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #726979WolfishMusingsParticipant
A woman outside brooklyn- im also on Geni, but I got stuck, and unless someone in your family made a tree tht goes further back than yours, how do you find more info?
One of the more comprehensive sources of family history on the web is Ancestry.com. I’ve found LOTS of stuff on my family there.
Also, from within Geni, do a search on the names of extended members of your family. Your second cousin may not be on Geni, but another cousin whom she knows (and you don’t) may have her in their tree and have much more information on generations gone before.

My tree (especially my own branches) does not go back anywhere nearly as far as the aforementioned. However, Geni does allow you to see how’re you’re “connected” to others, which in my case is such a convulated path that I couldn’t even attempt to explain it. But try it – it’s fun! Search for a famous Gadol, for example, and then Geni will tell you whether you’re connected, click on the link to see how, and then have a laugh.January 12, 2011 10:17 am at 10:17 am #726984ummMember
philosopher: I love gymboree, though I will admit their summer stuff are much cuter than their winter things. Also, are you shopping for a girl or boy? Their girl’s stuff is whats cute, the boys aren’t anything so amazing, but if there’s something nice in boys it’s worth buying it just for the quality, they wash amazing and will last you for a few children, hard to find that anywhere these days.
