Huangyangtan - Not completely dead yet

I noticed that at this very moment there is a minor surge in the number of people looking into this Huangyangtan thing. If any of you readers are here for the first time, please let me know in a comment where you came from (where you read about the replica landscape), perhaps from a mainstream media site.

Thanks!

p.s. Daughter's guppies are still alive, but we have to change the water today. The Noisy Children are up and outside early (7:30 a.m.). It sounds like they have the Doberman cornered.

I think I first heard about your discovery and the SMH article via a third-party blog feed last month and since then I've followed the unfolding story - Intriguing. I learned about your blog today via the SMH Mashup blog. Love it. Keep up the good work :-)

Jon Carroll, a columnist with the San Francisco (USA) Chronicle, mentioned it in his Monday AM column. It's only just before 6 in the morning there now, so it's us "easterners" (Texas, USA here) reading him on the web that may be causing the hits.

Ripping yarn, btw.

G'day,
What's with all these comments by readers of Australian publications? Did everyone here read the SMH article as I did? What's happened to the rest of the world? My Goodness, look at all those military jets heading north! Hang on there's a knock at the door... It's an asian looking avaiator who's a bit lost, he's asking for directions to your home...

Hello there KenGrok! I am new to the blog-o-sphere but old to the "Jon Carroll at SFgate.com
o-sphere", where I discovered information about your blog. I don't know much about the mechanics of blogging but am great at clicking on links, as were in Mr.Carroll's fine column. I find it lovely to discover that family life there does not seem much different than it is here in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. I too, suffer from "decibel barrage", although not of the child-in-swimming-pool variety....more of the "neighbor's dogs who all want to be the alpha dog, and thus engage in a barking contest" variety. I find the Bose Company's Noise Cancelling Headphones to be helpful.
I am truly enjoying your posts, and while my interest in China is limited (my apologies), I would love to know how your wonderful wife makes wiener schnitzel and potatoes. The thought absolutely made me drool. Take care and good luck with the guppies!

Your new reader,
Lisa E.

Hi KenGrok, found an article about your great discovery on Digg. Curious what will come out of this (I also read some posts on the Google Earth BBS)...
