Weekly Round-Up #1

Things I saw on the internet this week that I think are worth passing on:

First up, last week Young House Love wrote an important and informative post with tips about fire preparedness.

Primer brings us can't-miss article about 7 benefits of Google Voice. Read it whether or not you use the service.

I recently came across this incredible entryway makeover from 320 Sycamore. I am in love

This scarf tying tutorial from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam gives some great tips on adding interest to your scarves. It's especially great for spicing up a solid scarf.

John McIntyre wrote an excellent post on why Huckleberry Finn should be left as-is.

Two posts worth checking out from Language Log: A discussion of the phrase "In no uncertain terms" and an in-depth post on use of the passive voice. Oh, and just in case those two posts are too heavy for you, here's a fun little post about the foibles of English spelling.

The Art of Manliness covers 22 ways to re-use an Altoids tin.

Finally, I've been enjoying hearing this sweet love song on the radio from the up-and-coming country band Thompson Square.
