I comb over many blogs and chess sites every day. I've seen a lot of chess sites, but I'm sure there are those who have seen more than I have. Regardless, I occasionally stumble on an unknown (to me) chess site and it turns out to be a real gem ... loads of info about chess as well as lots of instructional stuff.
Today I ran accross Tim Krabbé's site. I've added it to my links.

Prisoners of war in WWII received smuggled mini chess sets. Each set had tools to escape the POW camp ... very interesting! One is up for auction. Read here for more.
These kids get up early every day to play chess at 7:00am. I wonder if blunders are more prevalent in the morning than the evening?
I don't watch Dancing with the Stars, but for what it's worth, a chess player was a finalist on the show ... until she was accused of taking lessons and being a professional dancer.
