Relevant?

The advertisements off to the left are automatically selected by Google after some machine of theirs scans the recent content of the website and figures out what visitors to this site might be interested in buying. Okay, when I last checked to day, there were four ads. One was for hotels in Thief River. That makes sense. But the other three were for 1) Flower girl dresses, 2) Evening gown bargains and 3) Women's dresses.

What have I done to deserve this? Are any of you interested in this stuff? (Must not be, today's revenue is $0.00.)

Holed up

I am hiding out in Grand Forks, working on finishing the book on the Halstad teams. Today was a success. I finished an entire chapter. Now, it is to sustain the effort.

I worked on the UND campus today. The place is buzzing with students. Classes started yesterday. I got some free ice cream from a sorority which had a stand outside their house.
