As one of my colleague's referred to them, Yahoo's new Widgets are "ridiculously cool!" Download the engine and then pick up a few more of the Widgets from the gallery. One of the guys responsible for most of the coolest ones is Arlo Rose. You can check out his blog at mouselabs.

My buddies and I have been going to Gaylord for over ten years to play a 4-man Skins golf game. This year we decided to break tradition and go to Lewiston and a resort called Garland. On Friday we usually try to get in 9 holes before dark so we went to the resort and asked if we could tee off on any of the four courses that were there. They asked us to play The Reflections course. A couple weeks later, I noticed that it had been awhile since I had pulled the pages off my golf course page-a-day calendar at my home office. This calendar has golf courses from all over the world. As I was pulling the pages off, there was a photo of one of the holes from The Reflections course. It was for the Wednesday before we played it.

A golf trip I take every year is with a group of around 16 guys that go to Myrtle Beach. The cheap tickets we buy take us through New York's Laguardia airport. As our plane took off, I started paging through the November 2005 issue of The Atlantic Monthly. I looked out the window as we started to make a banked turned to the South and was treated to a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. When I returned to my magazine and flipped the next page there was an article on the statistics around the daily commuter traffic on and off the island of Manhattan. It included a map of the island that matched the overhead view I had out my window.
