I Tweeted my 16,000 Tweet today. My first one was in September 2008. Wow and kind of weird. What do I say? Not enough or too much?
“Minnesota Chapter.” Ninety-Nines Magazine 44, No. 1, (January/February 2018): 34.

This year The Norwegian Explorers 2017 Christmas Annual’s theme was “Fame and Fortune in the Canon.” For my submission, I tried to think of something creative and a bit unique, so I submitted “The Case of the Sherlock Holmes Sudoku Puzzle.” Yes, its really a Sudoku puzzle, but with a Holmes theme. I have always wanted to create a Sudoku puzzle and figured that this would be a good opportunity.

On Monday Dec 18, Amazon.com sent me an email that read: “Based on your recent activity, we thought you might be interested in this.” What was of interest? It was “The Machiavellian Librarian!” Strangely I was not looking at librarian books or books by me or by Erika. Strange!
Did you know that if you order three copies of Cass Sunstein’s book “Impeachment: A Citizen’s Guide” from Amazon the final amount comes to $17.76? Get it? 1776! Haha. Intentional or just the Force moving in mysterious ways.
I tweeted that and it was retweeted by Sunstein! How awesome is that!
My latest book review was published last month and I did not even know it. This was book review #128!
“A Village with My Name: A Family History of China’s Opening to the World” by Scott Tong. Library Journal, 11/15/2017, Vol. 142, Issue 19, p86-87.
A library article was just published and I am quoted!

Congratulations Doctor Kevin Frank!
Fellow IDV PhD student Kevin just finished his PhD Dissertation on “Strategic Culture in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Divergent Paths of Uganda and Tanzania.” He included this in his Acknowledgments page: “My classmates in the Doctoral Program in International Development at the University of Southern Mississippi provided the comradeship that is so important in blended curriculums. I would especially like to thank Ms. Melissa Aho, a splendid research librarian and classmate who helped me navigate many of the shoals of academic resources. Her efforts greatly contributed to the breadth of sources of which I made use” (2017, iv). I am sure that Kevin would have done just fine without me, but its still super cool to be thanked. Thanks Doctor Kevin!
