Yup, it's me, Mr. Useless Information himself. I've been in winter hibernation, the bridges up here are still buried in snowplow dropoff (like my mailbox) but quadrants are starting to show up again. (So did my mailbox this past week.) My shutter finger is itchin' to go bridge hunting again soon!

Considering that Mott the Hoople was a Brit band, I doubt that connection, however, the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople has the largest collection of manuscripts by P.D.Q. Bach, in fact, more than fourscore of scores.

Prof. Peter Schickele used to broadcast his "Report from Hoople" on the university's radio station, WOOF. His broadcasts included such notable P.D.Q Bach compositions as the Echo Sonata for Two Unfriendly Groups of Instruments, Schleptet in E flat Major, Fugue in C Minor, from the “Toot” Suite for Calliope Four Hands, 1712 Overture, The Short-Tempered Clavier and Grand Serenade for an Awful Lot of Winds & Percussion.

A most valuable a historical location, no doubt.

Good job Frank. I try to figure out missing locations of bridges too. You know Hoople is where the University of Southern North Dakota is located?
