Here are three comics that I never miss -
Baby Blues -
Having had little kids in my house once upon a time, I get a lot of chuckles reading about the adventures of this young family!
For people who have raised teenage boys!
This is my stage of life now!
If you ever make it to Santa Rosa, California, I recommend the Charles Schulz Museum. Charles Schulz was the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and he was a very interesting person. We visited his museum when we were in California this past fall.

And on a not so comic note, I signed up for the daily emails from The Writer's Almanac after LeeAnna's recommendation last week, and I really like it! Another thing I find I am enjoying starting my day with is a poem, and some info on this day in history. Tuesday's poem was especially beautiful -
Winter: Tonight: Sunset
Tonight at sunset walking on the snowy road,
my shoes crunching on the frozen gravel, first
through the woods, then out into the open fields
past a couple of trailers and some pickup trucks, I stop
and look at the sky. Suddenly: orange, red, pink, blue,
green, purple, yellow, gray, all at once and everywhere.
I pause in this moment at the beginning of my old age
and I say a prayer of gratitude for getting to this evening
a prayer for being here, today, now, alive
in this life, in this evening, under this sky.
