Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Top, Bottom and Right Dakota

One, two and three, there are three Dakota states, not just two! Besides the North and South versions of Dakota, I learned today that the word Minnesota comes from the Dakota language, meaning "sky tinted water". So I propose we change the names of the three states to Top Dakota, Bottom Dakota, and Right Dakota.

I figured that the "old" North Dakota, now Top Dakota, would need to give up its North part because it goes as far north as 49 degrees, while the "old" Minnesota, now Right Dakota, goes to 49°23′ N latitude, which would have made it a 'More Northern Dakota', farther north than 'Lesser North Dakota' or 'More Southern Old North Dakota'. Fourth grade geography students are confused enough having a Washington state, a Washington DC, a Virginia and West Virginia, so that would probably just freak 'em out completely.

I forgot to check on Wish-consin to see if it was Dakota-ish: Nope, looks like it is Algonquin with a French twist (-degradation-).
