How to Scare A Blogger in One Easy Step:
Find their blog under google search: "(insert name of perfectly healthy old friend of blogger here) (insert name of item/activity blogger & friend both love here) died".
Blogger's next visit to referrals section of site statistics = near heart attack for blogger.
My friend is fine but I was on tenterhooks until he said so!!! Then I explained, closing with a reference to that famous Mark Twain quote, "Rumours of my demise have been greatly exaggerated".
I expect we'll be laughing about this for a long time. But WHAT a scare!
