It's the Gettysburg Family's Internet, And We're All Just Shilling for Them.

Ooooh, look at that. My sister Susan's corned-beef recipe (The Best Corned Beef Recipe Ever. Really.) just made the front page on Google if you search for "best corned beef recipe."

Why am I telling you this? Is it just a feeble excuse to create another link to her recipe, so as to help her drive up her Google rankings?

Well, yeah.

As for me, I'm not sure what I'm up to this year for St. Paddy's Day. It's on a Wednesday, and I'll be working. I'm pretty sure that before I moved to Michigan I never worked a single St. Paddy's Day in my life -- or for that matter a March 18, which is also known as National Irish-American Recovery Day in some circles.

Disreputable circles, I assure you. Circles which I, your gentle author, has only heard spoken of thirdhand.

My guess is that I'll wear something green to work, and eat some corned beef, potatoes, and cabbage for dinner. But that's just a guess. I do know I'll open one of the remaining Home-Hop Irish Stouts.

And perhaps this year we'll try my sister's Google-rific recipe: (The Best Corned Beef Recipe Ever. Really.)


  1. Ahem. We seem to have had a small communication error. If you Google "Best Corned Beef Recipe Ever" there I am on the front page. If you Google "Corned Beef Recipe" you'll have to scroll through a few (67) pages to find it. Clearly Google knows it's not just any old corned beef recipe.

  2. Ooops. Yes, I see now that I typed in "best corned beef recipe" not just "corned beef recipe." However, "best corned beef recipe" was enough to get it up to the first page for me.

    I'll amend the blog entry to reflect the true facts of your Internet corned beef fame.
