I was reading about interesting winter apps in a magazine and one mentioned was a fireplace app, so I wondered if there was a fireplace video on YouTube. That was the proverbial Pandora's box.

I have been a Google Voice (GV) user for years. It's been an indispensible product for me. I have the app on my Android phone, the plugin on my Chrome browser, and text/voicemail forwarding on Gmail.
