My love after fitness? (actually, even before fitness ) FOOD!
Natasha thanks for the wonderwall.msn.com suggestion. If you like celebrity info, you might like mailonline.com. I read stuff on there that I hear about days later elsewhere. I'm with you, food is definately my 1st love

Tracy, Clare and Pam ~ thanks for the info! Despite the size of the world wide web, I find that I visit the same sites over and over again. I like to hear what else is out there

Also can see projects others have done, lots of free patterns and probably a lot of other things I have not explored.

Yay! Another Ravelry fan! There's tons of free patterns, help on all yarn issues, and even a great swap system. I haven't been really active on there in a long while, but I'm "slipstitchsuzy"

I also love:
Amazon - I have a shopping problem
news.discovery.com/ for science-y things
slate. com & salon.com - for news & politics
Huffington Post - more news
Ebay - You never knew you needed that object until you saw it there online
rcrdlb.com - new music, free streaming & downloads
Freebook Sifter - A Resource for Free eBooks - free books for kindle

Lifehacker.com - tips & ideas for all sorts of stuff
-- this has a family of websites: Gawker, Jezebel, io9, Gizmodo -- for all things geeky, snarky, feminist (some stuff NSFW)

nataliedee.com & her husband at Married To The Sea - 2,000+ comics by Drew & Natalie Dee - Updates daily at midnight -- daily internet comics (some stuff NSFW)

I should stop now.

Such cool on-line places you all have found!
Some that I like which haven't been listed are:

AnimalRescueSite.com
t-nation.com (interesting regarding body building)
psychologyToday.com
yahoo.com

Thanks so much - I'm looking forward to checking out some of the new-to-me sites

One of my favorite websites is Confessions of a Homeschooler.
I homeschool my kids so I get lots of good info from this site.

Here are some really cool websites recommended by Maximum PC (my DH has a subscription). I have taken a short description of the websites from the magazine.

-www.louisvsrick.com (man teaching his cat to IM. Really funny)
-www.jetpunk.com (the only quiz site you'll ever need)
-www.supercook.com (every meal is indeed a banquet)
-www.10minutemail.com (temporary email addresses)
-www.dynamitedeals.com (comparison shop with ease)
-www.myparentswereawesome.tumblr.com (your folks before they were old)
-www.virustotal.com (is that file really safe?)

Enjoy!

Since I'm also a tv junkie, when some of my favorite shows are on (Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Homeland, Game of Thrones etc etc) I like to go to two sites: TelevisionwithoutPity.com and Reddit.com. I also like A.V. Club, Grantland, EW.com and several other media sites.

I also love to check out WebMD.com and ScienceDaily for health and science news. I'm a total science nerd. I'm always buying Discover and Scientific American magazines. DH always complains that I should just get a subscription already. I also love Archaeology magazine. Besides fitness, I love reading about archaeology, anthropology, evolution and neurobiology.

For recipes, I love allrecipes.com. I haven't had to buy a cookbook in years!

I love Swansons.com to browse for supplements and Amazon.com for pretty much all my other online shopping!

DH and I love to look on vrbo.com for vacation rentals. It's awesome! Thousands of rentals buy homeowners across the country. Want to stay at a house with a pool in Florida? There are thousands listed on that site! We'll never stay at a hotel again!

Does videofitness have a forum? What do you do on it? I'm always lost when I first look at a new site.

Yes VF has a General Discussion forum as well as a Check in and Challenges section and Exchange listing (where you can exchange/trade dvds). There are also sections were people post reviews of exercise dvds and a recipe box section as well. Most of the action is on GD. You have to register to post or view the exchange listing though. Here's the links:
http://forum.videofitness.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4

Check ins: Challenges and Check-ins - Video Fitness Forum

and the exchange list: Video Fitness Forum

When/if you register sometimes it takes Wendy (the manager/creator of the site) a little while to okay your membership (she has to do it personally) since she has to wade through a lot of spammer stuff. If you register and it takes awhile before you can actually post just go ahead and email her to let her know. HTH
