Lake Steam

Sunrise and steam on Lake Superior

Topeka made a lot of news renaming itself (honorarily) to Google, and even got a nod back on April 1. Duluth promised to name its first-born children after Google. They are big on advertising so it’s a tough call which is worth more. (Though if you consider the cost of switching a city’s name, compared to the free and ever growing number of offspring…)

Honors and proposals aside, I hope Google compares its own search results for each city, especially the images. Granted there’s a lot more to consider than merely which of us is prettier, but we got soul power, and that should count for something.

Plus, free hugs. Just sayin.

Egads!  This vying for Google fiber thing is like watching a train wreck in very slow motion.  Trust me, it won't put Duluth on the map as a darker dot, nor will anyone put it to good use (maybe shipping, the air force, and coast guard, but that's about it).  Please, oh please, somebody say that it will benefit DBU.  Please say that.  I need a giggle :^)

Nice pic...
and Yes! Duluth should be renamed to Google.
Google is more fun to say than Dull-uth,
and some other stuff.
Google, MN FTW!!!

remember that it wasn't too long ago that using Google in conversation (I'm gonna google myself. I googled her last night. Mind if i google you?) would have been met with a slap across the face at the very least.

I see the Lake steam all the time from where I live but have never seen a "performance" like yesterday morning's.  Simply wonderful.  Interesting enough it was on the Lake and not the bay.

Free hugs are the best... cyber hug :)
