Psychic twins

Either I have a psychic twin somewhere, or I donít understand how Google works. Three of my recent Google hits are:

  • maccoll joy of living
  • like meat loves salt
  • dichroic earrings

I know Iíve done those searches, but I canít imagine anyone else would. I mean, presumably there are other people interested in Ewan MacCollís song, The Joy of Living, or Si Kahnís song Like Butter Loves Bread (and youíve never heard of either, I know, which helps prove my point), and even in dichroic glass earrings, or none of those would be for sale. But how many people search Google for them?

Caveat: I think "like meat loves salt" is also from a fairy tale, similar to King Lear, when a father asks his daughters how much they love him. But still.

Dichroic glass earrings, in fact, are not only on my ears even as I type, but were on my mind when I started this diary. Hence the title.

I have no reason to think all three searches, or even any two, were from the same person. But still.

Maybe I should mention here how much I like Stan Rogers, or Edith Nesbit, or the Polly of Pebbly Pit series (girlsí books ca. 1920), or Snyders of Hanover Sourdough Hard Pretzels, or Dorothy Sayers (well, sheís not that obscure!) and see if any other psychic twins turn up.

Sign the guestbook, if you do.
