Weird, Wild, Wonderful 4 - January 24 - 30
A most interesting site if you love lemons, as I do, is lemonflower. This site has everything lemon, from recipes, to beauty tips, to laws about lemon cars, to a business plan for a lemonade stand! The recipes alone are worth the visit - lemon pie, lemonade, lemon chicken, lemon butter.
Also this week is Blogger's Cafe, a blog full to overflowing with information and reviews of other blogs. There are four "libraries" in this blog, each containing the blogs the owner has reviewed in categories - makes things easy to find. This is a great resource and is always good for spending as much time as one has free just poking around.
I love wine and am only just beginning to work my way around a site called Winedoctor (independent opinion on wine). The site is extensive with detailed information about wines from different countries and regions, about producers, vintages, and tasting notes. There is a glossary of terms and a section called Wine Advice with information on such things as choosing glasses and shapes of wine bottles. This is another one that could keep a person busy for a good while.
Finally this week is a blog that already has about 15,000 followers, so needs no introduction from me! But I do love it, so can't resist. The Sartorialist features photos from great cities like Paris, Milan, and New York (among others) of chic and stylish people on the street. What a simple, but wonderful idea. The men and women Scott Schuman photographs all have a distinct personal style, are always cool, and mostly wear clothes that I couldn't wear in a million years. But they are totally wonderful.
