It’s been a while since I’ve shared a Friday collection of internet wanderings and this was definitely an emotional week on the web, with the loss of a true American genius making many of us reflect on just how computers have impacted our lives. Keep reading for the latest collections of links I think are worth a click sometime this weekend.
When the news broke on Wednesday that Steve Jobs had died, it felt like the entire internet paused to reflect on how his vision had touched our lives. I can’t stop thinking about the circle of life in which a man who spent his life sharing his dream with millions left a legacy of technology that enables millions to better share their personal dreams as well. Thanks Steve Jobs, for leaving our world so much better than it was when you entered it. Endless fans and friends have written tributes to him, and The Blog That Ate Manhattan has done a great job of collecting some of the best Tributes Remembering Steve Jobs.
Flower Power Eggs
Apron Strings is written by a a talented mother-daughter pair who come up with some of the most interesting food creations you’ll find on the web. This week I loved Donna’s Flower Power Eggs (pictured above), and yes I do remember those flower power days!
How to Make Sourdough Bread
My Grandma Denny was famous for her sourdough bread, and when you went to her house she always had sourdough starter in the fridge. I thought of Grandma’s sourdough starter when Nicole at Pinch My Salt did a series of posts on How to Make Sourdough Bread. Nicole covers the entire process, from photos of the starter growing day-by-day to pictures of the finished bread.
How to Freeze and Reheat Soup
I get questions all the time about whether certain recipes will freeze well, and just in time for winter Lydia at Soup Chick has written a great piece about How to Freeze and Reheat Soup. Even if you think you’re fairly savvy about freezing, I’m guessing you might learn a few things from this post.
Why You Should Get a Dog Instead of a Facelift
Finally, a post written by a plastic surgeon who’s also an expert on dogs about Why You Should Get a Dog Instead of a Facelift. This isn’t new, but I just discovered it recently and immediately saved it in my file of things worth sharing!
Happy weekend everyone, and if you’ve seen something noteworthy this week that we should be taking time to read, please let us know about it on the comments.
