Five Great Sites

If I were on a desert island and I got to choose 5 web sites to bring with me this is what I’d choose:

MapQuest
Sometimes they directions aren’t the most direct but out of the 100 or so times I’ve used them they have steered me wrong only once.

Qwestdex
The phone book online – I use it at least once a day. (They now include zip codes on their addresses which means the USPS zip finder got bumped from this lis.

Epicurious
Those who know me will be surprised to see a cooking site make this list but this site helped me track down the recipe for the roast garlic & chutney recipe from 128 – and for that I am grateful!

Noodletools
A tool that helps you to create citations in MLA bibliographic format. I use it more than you might think; this is for all of the students or parents of students.

Google
OK – this is like asking for 3 more wishes – but there is no site I use more often than Google.

This weekend I’m going to the 2003 Rural Summit in Mankato. I’m hoping to bring back some fun new tools.
