Useful widgets for Google Desktop sidebar

I turned the Google Desktop sidebar back on, because there are a few widgets that I thought would make my life easier. They definitely help.

At the top, there's the time and date, day, and a mini calendar.

Below that is a large yellow notepad - this is the most useful widget. I often need a place to jot down information, and to refer to it. This notepad widget is always visible, and doesn't cover up any other windows.

Just below that is a little purple calculator widget called easyCalc. You can type in arithmetic expressions. It's not the greatest - the numbers are tiny, and it behaves a bit wonky sometimes - but it does the job.
