Inspired by a post on Brendan's weblog, I have a linguistics poll for you: garage sale, yard sale, tag sale or rummage sale? Up in New England it's all tag sales, and Brendan hadn't heard of rummage sales (which we do have here a lot, but never have tag sales). Go and discuss.

Awesome artist of the week: Lori Nix.

Awesome art of the week: the things you can do with paper.

Tarot of the week: the international icon set. Yes, really!

Update on a previous post: the house where Arthur Conan Doyle wrote The Hound of the Baskervilles has been saved, hooray!

If you've ever wondered who's behind those occasional Google logo themes, here's an article about the man known as the Google Doodler.

Judge a book by its cover? Check out the Cover Art gallery for all sorts of fun.

Regarding the poll: I've also seen "estate sale," especially in southern California, which is basically a yard sale with more than the usual amount of crap, and most of it over-priced.
