This faux blog has been created for Search Engine Optimization. Here I mention Latvians and Latvia in Toronto, Latvians in Montreal, Latvians in USA, exciting books, shocking revelations, scandals, dirty little secrets…somebody stop me!

O.K. Enough.

    I just read:’7 tips for Squeezing Money From the Net’. The article is in the March edition of the Down East Magazine of Maine.
    So I’m squeezing.
    Tip #2 tells me to use words which will make my site pop up at the top of a Google search. Hope it works.

    Is that quite honest?
    And is the raison d’etre for your blog to squeeze money?

    Money? Tut-tut… Such a crass raison d’etre.
    But I have to tell you one thing: Within just minutes my name has been propelled right to the top of Google search. Like now I appear ABOVE Dr Ilze Berzins, noted American marine biologist.
    Sorry, Dr Berzins. But you are probably on salary somewhere, tenured at some American University while I am but a *scrag squeezing out a meagre living any which way I can.

    * scrag
    I thought I had invented the word but Webster’s gives this definition: feeble, stunted person
    Not quite what I had in mind.

    I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. It’s better to be rich.

    Aren’t you the one who wrote:
    A rose is a rose is a rose?

  6. Gertrude writes:

    C’est correct!
    And another thing: America is my country, but Paris is my hometown.
    I can also tell you that there were no–how you call them?–Yes, there were no SCRAGS at the salon Alice and I held at 27 rue de Fleurus.

  7. George writes:

    This girl talk is very annoying. Everyone knows Gertrude– (yes, Gertrude Stein), was very rich. Who else could go to Paris, set up in a swank apartment, entertain Picasso and Hemingway and drive off to the Riviera with her lover, Alice B. Toklas?

  8. butterfly writes:

    as Gertrude would say, a rose is a rose is a rose, whatever!

    • Alice writes:

      My dear friend, Gertrude, said so many many memorable things. For example:
      “As long as the outside does not put a value on you it remains outside but when it does put a value on you then it gets inside or rather if the outside puts a value on you then your inside gets to be outside.”

    The one I love is:
    “I am writing for myself and strangers. This is the only way that I can do it.”

  10. Judy writes:

    Anxiety, fear and anger are not played upon, and this alone sets Gertrude Stein apart from most modern authors.

  11. ilzeberzins writes:

    What happened? Fish History now dominates my google search page and Dr Ilze Berzins is on top again. I couldn’t find her blog or e-mail to ask how she did it.

  12. ilzeberzins writes:

    How does it work, this Google thing? I’m up there again, way above Fish History. Are they playing with us? Pitting one Ilze Berzins against the other? And why should it matter?
    It just shows you how competitive we Latvians are!
