    Bobbi Meyer I luv to ride my tricycle, I luv to ride my trike

    I received an email from an optometrist student at the University of Manchester in Singapore asking about visual requirements of taxidermists......I answered the questions he asked me and sent them back to him.
    Then he replies again asking for photos showing me doing my close up work.......
    I don't think he's a stalker or anything weird like that, but he did say he found my website from here......
    why do I get all the weird stuff? LOL

    I had a call yesterday from a woman wanting to know more info on a biofuel rendering plant. The address was one mile from my house I replied we don't have a rendering plant anywhere near us and I looked the address up and it's a dude's house ? She said she found me by googling business in the area.

    NOT a Stalker BUT...they send out these emails to JILLIONS of addresses...that they steal or make up to FISH and see if the email address is valid...and if anyone uses it. By answering that email you have let them know it is a valid address and that they can send you tons of SPAM...OR to hit your computer with a virus to screw it up... OR MAYBE steal your personal info.

    You SHOULD NOT answer these emails!! You haven't won a million dollars....No student from Singapore wants to know about YOUR taxidermy work.

    I just got a Facebook friend request from a topless woman last night. Didn't open it...I knew better.
