You can call me TC

Some friends of ours have gone to the US to see the eclipse. They will be at Yellowstone park when it passes them. Sounds fun.

I am not sure what the ad now showing wants me to do. It seems to want me to go to Tyrol on holiday, or maybe just to pledge allegiance to it. Sorry, I'm not Austrian. I'm not even German, although I suppose I ought to be considering it, as some of my friends have.

These ads are getting oracular. smiley - yikes

I updated the page, and got a huge banner that pronounced, 'FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED.'

I'd hit the refresh button before I saw what it was actually supposed to be advertising...

Brigham and Women's Hospital, which is in Boston. I think was there for a few days in 2012. I must have been a Brigham, since I'm not a woman. smiley - smiley

There's that Lattice 'O Coincidence.

I just heard mention of Brigham and Women's University on NPR's Science Friday (I'm listening to the podcast on a Monday). One of their guests was a professor there, speaking about the ethics of testing drugs.

Foster Grant sunglasses. A little late to sell me on them. The eclipse has already been and gone, not that it was noticeable here.

Make Ireland Yours from just £79 – Irish Ferries.
£79 for all of Ireland, eh? Sounds a good deal to me. I'd've thought purchasing a whole country would cost trillionssmiley - 2cents and I'd need the people of Ireland's consent firstsmiley - goodluck
