A woman out of the clear blue yesterday wrote to me. She was quite rude and accusing and said I had lifted content from her website and placed it on About.com. Not only that, but she went on to say she was a professional writer, and she insisted that she had written the content for her website. S...

There seems to be no end to the madness going on in Elk Grove right now. It's such a hot demand community. It's sizzling.

Nary a day goes by when somebody doesn't write and ask me to promote something or disclose something or inform the public of something -- and 99.9% of the time it solely benefits the person who is writing to me.
