Favorite Websites

These are some of my favorite websites. I have lots of diverse interests (an understatement, actually) and, in my spare moments, I like to surf around to all sorts of unusual locations in the cyber realms. These are among my most frequent stopping-off points. Many, many hours well wasted have been spent at these sites.
