You know, other people get the best search strings when strangers stumble onto their site. I get boring ones.

There are lots of Tour de France searches, most of them involving crashes.
My second most are for photos of Barbra Streisand's house, or her lawsuit with Ken Adelman.
Jeanine Garafalo is next, even though she is a non-person to me.
I had one for "vershbow hockey" today--Alexander Vershbow is the American Ambassador to Russia. I'm not sure exactly what they were looking for, but it turns out LOYAL CITIZEN VICTOR is the second site returned on that search.
Funniest search string I've ever had? "Marsupials with guns."

OK, I can talk about my beta testing now. I'm helping Six Apart beta their new TypePad "Publishing System." It's a nice little program, and I'm enjoying it so far. Feel free to help me break things over at Publius & Co., my TypePad blog.

They've fixed the problem I reported to them earlier. Nice response time, for such a minor problem.

I found this blog off a link from Right We Are! (I think. Problem with following links--you forget your starting point frequently), and this page contains one of the coolest photos ever.

Fighters in Formation

What makes it cool is the Hellcat in the middle. One of the first model airplanes I ever built, way back when I was a kid, was an F6F-5 Hellcat, and I fell in love with the plane immediately. Maybe because it was my first model airplane, maybe because it was flown by the Marines, maybe because it was one bad-ass mo' fo' of a fighter. . .but man!

Is that a sweet picture or what?

(Thanks to Frank at fritzliess.com for posting that picture. Turns out the folks flying the Hellcat and the Bearcat are his inlaws.)
