Nellie Oleson, after all these years...

This is completely off topic, but I can't help myself. You know how sometimes you're reading something online that leads you to something else, that leads you to something else, that leads you to... Nellie Oleson? Yep, Alison Arngrim, aka Nellie Oleson, has a website. She's now a stand-up comic, and does a one-woman show called "Confessions of a Prairie Bitch."

Her site is pretty basic, and it looks like she hasn't been keeping it up much, but there's some good stuff on there, especially for die-hard Little House fans like myself. There's even a "Don't Mess With Nellie" game.

I actually came across her site via something that someone wrote about the whole Cashman scandal. Apparently, Arngrim does volunteer work to with a group that advocates for stricter penalties for child molesters. She appeared on Larry King Live not long ago to admit that she had been molested as a kid. Very sad.

I wonder if her one-woman show is funny? It sounds funny. I would go, regardless. Alas, it's not playing anywhere nearby.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
