Here is a Bing search for music, just type in a name after the word videos to see what you can find.
Bing has a new form on spicy recipes that we have added.
The Comics change Daily! Sadly the editorial cartoon site does not present as much initial content with the editorial cartoons, but there are a variety available.
USA Today: Editorial Cartoons:
Their success at presenting multiple ad impressions is an editorial cartoon all by itself! One new cartoon is added daily. http://www.usatoday.com/picture-gallery/opinion/cartoons/2012/09/18/daily-editorial-cartoons/1411813/

With so much going on in the world we thought we'd try a few new searches over hot button issues and international locations that stay in the news from day to day that interest us. WE have been surprised that our sources bring us so little international news from Central and South America. We will look for additional sources in our searches.
Human Rights: http://www.bing.com/search?q=Human+Rights%2C+latest+news
Civil Rights: http://www.bing.com/search?q=Civil+Rights%2C+latest+news
The Catalonia independence movement search is pretty silent. We're adding two more sources: Catalonia Spain Independence and http://www.catalannewsagency.com/ to our daily checking. It does appear to be updated daily.
Hong Kong Protests search shows more arrests.
American protests in the news.

Election Returns 2014
Our local Lea county and New Mexico State results are best viewed from the Secretary of State's pages. The US Election Center doesn't bring in the results we like to see. The election trivia section is fun. Lots of information is available.
The Supreme Court Current Session
The December session continues with deliberations and announcements. The calendar shows their schedule. Fridays are conference days. There is a wealth of information on the website. Past decisions, in pdf files, can be read in adobe reader files downloaded from http://www.supremecourt.gov/.

We still like this blog and site! we'll check it throughout this session:http://blog.constitutioncenter.org/
We like our one stop news source. They keep it updated. We think it works better than just grabbing stories and we will keep it! This will likely remain an off and on again news attack point until post election budget talks (again!) take front stage, center again:
We do have two older, ongoing projects that need work and they are listed below. Each will be changed over the next year, or the next, etc. No volunteers have offered to help, sadly. We will alert you when each is ready. Anyone want to help?
