Time Travellers

I often get a chuckle from the goofy searches that drive people to this blog. I feel a little sorry for the person who ended up here searching for "How to stop the horse from jumping the fence" - a problem I've never really solved. I don't know what a "Soviet era sewing machine" is but the person searching for that must have ended up here. People searching for "How to sharpen a bow saw" may come out there or here. Among the most common searches are China's one child policy, ice candles, woodpeckers and homemade mayonnaise. That's nice. Those are among my favorite posts.

But in the past week or two there's been an amazing rash of searches for "Time Traveller's Wife fivewells." They're not just searching for the book. They're searching for my mention of the book. And I have to tell you, it's not that good. I can only assume it's some kind of class assignment. I'm a little worried about what kind of class might be interested in this mundane little post.

So, if any of you Time Traveller searchers end up here on the front page (and now that I've mentioned Time Traveller several times, you probably will), leave a note about why you're interested in that post.

I'm late commenting MaryAnn, but find similar searches on my blog looking for info about a writer that I sometimes post translations of.

They seem to come in bunches and I often wonder how many students are handing in my translations for their classes!
