A Note To The Granddaughters

Beautiful biking weather and two soccer games this afternoon will interrupt the regularly scheduled programming.

[Update, 4:10: our varsity team won their game, 3 - 0. The JV game starts at 5:30 p.m.]

[Update, 8:40: our junior varsity won their game 6 - 1.]

Hedgehog home project by younger granddaughter.

The apartment complex is still under construction. Note that the hedgehogs have begun decorating their complex for Halloween.


  1. I can't wait for my monthly fix with the Director's Cut. Hope the number goes up!

    Wonder where that Rune Red Queen guy went. The dude who said ND Bakken would peak at 600-700 thousand bpd. He was sure strutting his stuff when MSM picked up his blogpost, but now won't face his bad prediction.

    1. Usually comes out on/about the 15th of the month. If the number goes down, it will be direct result of operators preparing to meet new flaring regulations. This report will be for August; new flaring regulations had not yet gone into effect. But, yes, it will be an interesting six months to watch the production numbers.
