Above Your Noise

With seven out of 202 search queries invoking EWM this week, I'm avoiding project polishing in favor of fun with server log redirections--I'm calling them s.lo/glibs (but I'll revise for a better-suited neologism if you've got one):
1. grandpa cheese barn [Passed it by, but I remember the billboard sign urging me to exit near Cleveland last summer.]
2. what is the meaning of authoritarian teacher? [Who're you calling authoritarian?]
3. grading blogs [I'm advocating pass-pass alternative assessment--VG=very good, SWA=slight work ahead]
4. dreams that you forgot to feed pets [Reminds me of the something-something-crunchy-tootsie-roll-munching-on-a-beach dream/ awoke-to-a-cat-litter-box joke.]
5. do businesses disclose enought information in their annual reports [Nah.  Pure nod-makers.]
6. free exemplification essay over driving distractions [Keep your eyes on the road.]
7. does anyone know where the love of god goes [Well, there's this tune while you contemplate it.]

Thanks for the song!

Yeah, I remember it well. That was a Viet Nam era song by Johnny Cash. What more can I say, except that, the best times in my life have been, when I've had something really worthwhile to fight for.

One of the best searches I've had in a long time is "Lebowski addiction." What I find amazing is that more than one person entered the same search term. And, yes, I *love* the Coen Bros. movie.

You're welcome, C. Glad you liked it. I wondered how for the love of god the "love of god" line matched with something here. Found it in the Lightfoot lyrics pops posted in the comments a while back. And the wartime theme...I don't know. Sounded right.

The searches are definitely a kind of meta-scatter-amalgam of the blog. It's like some kind of accumulated found art. So it's personally entertaining, but I always wonder about the disappointment of the searcher: "Damn site's got nothin on driving distractions!"

Pops and I have wondered why God needs us to love Him??? Have a few and ponder that one... Like the song. The "Man in Black" truly is a legend...

With you on MIB, Sybel. Of course, I'd listen to just about anything other than Christmas music to string me through these demanding few days.
