Websites you should know about

I am always thrilled when I come across a new site that I didn't know about before, and perhaps you are the same - in which case, this post might be useful for you. I have to change computers a lot here and so I have no consistent list of bookmarks, and so this post is useful for me, too, lest I forget about a page I really enjoy. I will be adding to this as I remember things! Enjoy.
