    Nice Blog, I finally found your 99 things list and learned a lot myself. I think you’re really nice, we should sit and have a Dr. Pepper some time! By the way, the last batch of Chex mix was outstanding. I think you must be doing something different.

    My name is Michael and I’m a fellow blogger.

    A couple of days ago, while doing some random searching across the web, I came across a blog on – I also discovered that the author had “re-posted” one of my fiancee’s poems without permission and was trying to pass it off as his own writing.

    After doing some additional checking, I discovered that almost all of the written content on that site had been “cut and pasted” verbatim from WordPress bloggers. Your post: “Spring cleaning – in the winter” was one of them.

    I don’t know if you gave permission for that person to “re-post” your writing, but in the event that you did not, I wanted to make you aware of the situation.

    You can see the “re-post” at:

    Best Regards,

    Stumbled across your blog… this is a great list. I was nodding my head (“me too, uh-huh, me too”) all the way through. Except for the one about not having a sweet tooth. I love chocolate.
