BR Dodge Wells In Dimmick Lake Have Been Completed -- May 18, 2018

These wells have been updated; see this post:
  • 17200, 829, BR, Dodge 1-17H, Dimmick Lake, t6/08; cum 225K 1/18;
  • 33338, 420, BR, Demicks Dodge 1A MBH-ULW,  Dimmick Lake, t12/17; cum -- (#17200)
I started following this well in January, 2018:
  • #17200; neighboring well recently fracked; bump in production; see what it is in a month or two; 
The neighboring wells have all been fracked; will post results over the weekend if I remember but they are all great wells. The BR Dodge wells are tracked here, but that post needs to be updated.

For those following IPs of recent BR wells, this is interesting to follow.

At the linked post, see the comments about these Dimmick Lake wells; completion strategies are unusual, and BR is reporting incredibly low 24-hour IPs for these wells.

Scientific American Not So Scientific Any More

I haven't looked at a Scientific American in ages. I quit reading the magazine some time ago: there were simply too many articles on anthropogenic global warming.

Last night, I had some free time, so I grabbed a couple of magazines off the rack at Barnes and Noble to read while having coffee. One of the magazines was Scientific American. Observations:
  • much smaller both in size of footprint, and number of pages; has gotten very, very small
  • lots of small, inconsequential fillers at the beginning of the magazine -- caters to a generation that doesn't have the attention span to read a two-page article
  • the magazine appears to be more "politically correct" than scientific; mostly filled with global warming articles or references to same
  • a nice long article on dinosaurs; asked why the dinosaurs were lucky to have emerged; question never answered
  • entire magazine has been dumb-downed; years ago when I was reading it, I had trouble following a lot of articles; no more; seems to have been dumb-downed for an audience of 8th graders -- which makes sense -- when I was teaching middle school students and high school students, it appears that students loved to read and read voraciously through 8th grade, and then stopped reading
  • entire magazine has been dumb-downed: those excellent math columns no long exist 
  • it's hard to believe this magazine will be around another ten years
Re-Posting: Can't Get Enough Of This

Far From Any Road, The Handsome Family

The group (or this song) reminds me of another group/song -- if I think of it, I will post it. Not Nancy Sinatra and that other guy, Summer Wine, but possibly.
From wiki:
The Handsome Family is an alternative country and Americana duo consisting of husband and wife Brett and Rennie Sparks formed in Chicago, Illinois, and currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
They are perhaps best known for their song "Far from Any Road" from the album Singing Bones, which was used as the main title theme for the first season of HBO's 2014 crime drama True Detective.
The band's 10th album, Unseen, was released on September 16, 2016, the first new release on the band's own label and through long-time label Loose in Europe.
This is enough to get me to visit Albuquerque again. Wow.

Be sure to read the entire wiki entry on The Handsome Family. Absolutely fascinating.


Years and years ago I had a very, very close psychologist friend. I learned a lot about mental health from that psychologist. I was reminded of that by the background of The Handsome Family. I also had a very, very close physician friend who thought about going into psychiatry because he was fascinated by the thin line between sanity and insanity. He went into renal research instead. I don't keep in touch with either of these two any more.
