3 Websites – Remodeling, Outdoors and Maps

Here are 3 websites that have looked at today that I think are worth sharing:

  • Bless This DIY Mess is a blog about a couple that has moved to Pittsburgh and is documenting their experience remodeling an older home in Highland Park. I really like this post about the history of their piano and the piano doctor.
  • Venture Outdoors has launched a new website – you can now sign up for any of their many awesome activities online. Is is easier to search for things to do too. A much welcomed improvement for a great organization. If you aren’t familiar with Venture Outdoors you should be – they make it very very easy for anyone to participate in outdoor activities – never tried hiking, biking, skating, kayaking? They have a beginner session for you. They bring the gear, maps, saftey info – you just have to show up.
  • Null Space is a blog that I have been keeping an eye on for a while. A friend just sent me the link again today and reminded me of all of the great info that is provided here.Chris Briem works in at Pitt for the Program in Urban and Regional Analysis.  His blog offers some great insight into local issues and some great maps to illustrate his blog posts.  Check out this post on congressional redistricting and why Tim Murphy wont endorse McCain.  He also includes some great photos – I like this one from Flag Day 1941.
