I've been to North Dakota more than usual over the last few months, and I think every time I've been up there it's been suggested that I start a blog. Those of you who have suggested this know already how horrible I am about emailing regularly, and I strongly suspect that my blog activity will have the same failing. Nonetheless, I really want to keep in touch better, and maybe this is how to do it. So, for friends and family the whole country over, this post shall serve as my announcement of greater things to come. Or something like that...anyway, good-bye for now.
