First time poster....long time reader on Contractor Talk!

Just curious what everyone's favorite Contractor magazines are?
Websites you can't live without?
Contractor News source?
Any other contracting media sources you look at regularly?

So far, my favorites are:
Magazine: Building and Construction Southwest and Southwest Contractor
Website: Contractortalk.com (of course!!), ezinearticles.com, I also like
Bobby Darnell's Blog, and Construction Marketing Ideas Blog.
Contractor News: So far I mostly only look at the sites above as well as
greatpossibilities.com (every once in a while)
Other: Well, I look at some industry twitter threads (sometimes they have
some good links to news or websites I might be interested in).

So, I just wanted to see if anyone can give me some suggestions on some industry sites/magazines/other to add to my favorites.

Thanks,
Casi
(p.s. new and improved website to come soon!)

Mellison - perfect response! Just what I was thinkin'...

What hits my mailbox each month:

Professional Deck Builder
Fine Homebuilding
JLC

I also get the free pub, Builder, put out by the NAHB. Not much of interest for me in there, but then again I'm not a GC dealing w/ building specs and neighborhoods.

Websites:
here
strongtie.com
Joist span calculator
OR '08 residential codes
WWPA tech guide
OR CCB (construction contractor's board)
timbertech.com

and every website for the products that I build with...
