Since "Free Republic is an online gathering place for independent, grass-roots conservatism on the web. We're working to roll back decades of governmental largesse, to root out political fraud and corruption, and to champion causes which further conservatism in America.", I and others think it's a good idea to centralize what the goes on in the Senate (or House).
So if you see something happening on the Senate/House floor and you don't want to start a new thread to ask if anyone else just heard what you heard, you can leave a short note on who said what and about what and I'll try and find it the next day in THE RECORD. Or if you see a thread that pertains to the Senate, House, or pretty much any GOV'T agency please link your thread here.
If you have any suggestions for this thread please feel free to let me know.
Here's a few helpful links.
C-SPAN what a great thing. Where you can watch or listen live to most Government happenings.
C-SPAN 1 carries the HOUSE.
C-SPAN 2 carries the SENATE.
C-SPAN 3 (most places web only) carries a variety of committee meetings live or other past programming.
OR FEDNET has online feed also.
A great thing about our Government is they make it really easy for the public to research what the Politicians are doing and saying (on the floor anyway).
THOMAS where you can see a RECORD of what Congress is doing each day. You can also search/read a verbatim text of what each Congressmen/women or Senator has said on the floor or submitted 'for the record.' [This is where the real juicy stuff can be found.]
Also found at Thomas are Monthly Calendars for the Senate Majority and Senate Minority
And Monthly Calendars for the House Majority and Roll Call Votes can be found here.
The Founders' Constitution
THE WHITE HOUSE
THE WAR DEPARTMENT (aka The Dept. of Defense)
LIVE DoD Briefings
NEWSEUM: TODAY'S FRONT PAGES
I don't have a Senate ping list .. but I manage to do the thread

Well I found it. Now what? :)
Wait for the lectures from the Dems???
Doesn't seem like much is going on at the moment .. so I guess that's good news :0)
LOL, I have not missed those idiots one bit. :)
It's Tom Carper
Peach has a thread up for the President's speech.
Carper says instead of a road map to peace .. we have a road map to war
Says we need new leaderership from the President
Yea, that's him
For some reason I kept thing Castle .. I knew that was wrong but I couldn't remember Carper's name
Cornyn is up now saying he disagrees with Carper
I really need to call the cable company, Cornyn looks like a smurf. I can't make out what he's saying through the buzzing. :(

Cool that worked. Thanks.
YAY...YOU ARE TERRIFIC...
Thanks for the ping and the new Senate thread.

I did hear Durbin going through his litany of complaints before I left...I can't repeat them though...they went in one ear and out the other...like all of their complaints.
