Sunday Morning Musings -- Probably Nothing About The Bakken

If you came here for the Bakken, scroll down. I updated the Oakdale oil field yesterday. That was a fun one.

Some years ago I stumbled across the etymology of "beyond the pale." I believe I was in northern England at the time, doing a lot of reading when I came across the origin of the phrase.

I was reminded of that when I came across the origin of the phrase, "Ivory Tower." I found it in Andrew Hodges' biography of Alan Turing. All these years I never thought of looking up "Ivory Tower" at wiki, and now I'm glad I didn't. It is so much more fun to stumble across some of these things in the old-fashioned way.

But there is some good stuff on the internet. I may have to add "Ice Age Now" to my "featured blogs" over at the sidebar at the right. A recent essay on "global warming" was about as good as it gets. I'm also impressed with the comments: they seem to be written by folks who have a measurable IQ, and can think for themselves.

The linked essay begins:
Recently, three researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, had a study published that claimed that a “substantial” correlation between violence and climate change could be made.
They cited sixty studies from around the world that, according to a BBC World Service article, demonstrated that “even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes, and murders, as well as group conflicts and war.”
Apparently they missed the data on World War II’s Battle of the Bulge or the siege of Stalingrad, both of which were fought in freezing weather. Earlier, Napoleon ran into a similar problem when he wanted to conquer Russia.
And so it goes. 

The Brady Bunch In The Williston-Watford Metroplex

This is really a cute story. Don sent it to me.

The Dickinson Press is reporting:
“I didn’t want to go. I hadn’t dated anybody up here,” said Propper, who moved from Georgia to Watford City about 1½ years ago. “That wasn’t in the plan. I didn’t want to date, I just worked.”
But the 36-year-old found she had much in common with Chris Kamph, an oilfield electrician from Idaho she met through a mutual friend.
Both have teenage children from previous marriages and moved to North Dakota’s Oil Patch to pursue high-paying job opportunities.
Ever since that blind date in Watford City last November, the two have been practically inseparable. They will be married on Saturday at Williston’s Spring Lake Park.
The ages of the children of the blended family:  13, 14, 15, 16 and 18.

Amy Dalrymple really does a nice job with these stories. This is one of her best, I think.
