best of the web - handyman - handyToday’s Cool Site of the Day is @Handy, a site where you can easily find people to come to your house and fix stuff (or clean the joint). I tried them out 2 weeks ago (needed a plumber) and, as scheduled, Jose B arrived–from nearly an hour away. Not only was he delighted to get the job, he was also a total pro. Reviews of Handy on Yelp are varied but mostly positive. I recommend them.

Cool food – Perfect Bar

Protein Bars - Perfect BarToday’s Cool Site of the Day is actually a food item. A protein bar. A really good protein bar. The Perfect Bar. Started by a dad in San Diego and carried on (and improved upon) by his kids. Interesting story and, more importantly, good tasting protein bars in a handful of great flavors–I just had the peanut butter bar.
