"... you tend to write about zombies from time to time."

- That's news to me, unless you count some of my political posts. :-)

Got this astonishing email this morning ...
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Question about paulinhouston.blogspot.com

Hi there!

I stopped by paulinhouston.blogspot.com earlier today and noticed you tend to write about zombies from time to time. Because of that, I thought it might be worth it to share an article with you published by CB Structures Inc. with detailed information on how to prepare a barn or garage for the zombie apocalypse.

Check it out here:

http://www.cbstructuresinc.com/the-comprehensive-plan-for-surviving-the-zombie-apocalypse-from-your-pole-barn

If you have a second, I'd love to have you check it out and see if it may be of interest to your readers or tie into one of your upcoming stories. Or, if you'd be willing to share it with any of your fans and followers, that would be great, too!

Any questions, please let me know. It's also cool if you want to give me a call at the number below. And thanks for taking a second to check out this article.

Have a great weekend! Oh... and if you watch it, enjoy the premiere of 'The Walking Dead' on tonight!

Now, this is an example of serendipity in blogging. I ask you, if given that line I used as my title, how could you not make a post of it in reply?

As far as I can determine, CB Structures is a legitimate outfit, headquartered in Pennsylvania, specializing in pole barns and various kinds of steel-frame structures.

Apparently someone in their organization with a sense of humor (is that allowed in business? :-) put up that page linked above. It is a fun read and you'll be going, "That even makes sense!".

I censored part of the sender's info because of the following ...

ProspectMX, LLC is an internet marketing services agency, established in late 2007, and I'm guessing that CD Structures Inc is one of their clients.

The email to me is almost certainly an attempt to get some exposure for their client, and I have to question their judgment in sending it to me. Let's face it: As much as I love my blog, my site is not Michelle Malkin's nor InstaPundit's; either of those will get more hits in a few minutes than the few hundred or so this post of mine will get in several months.

Also, the same Google search I used to get that info turned up this as well ...

http://www.ripoffreport.com/computer-marketing-companies/prospect-mx/prospect-mx-scam-artists-with-7e9d4.htm

It makes for interesting reading, but I'm not at all sure how much credence to give it.  It's mostly a "he said - she said" account that could be accurate, could be the gripes of a disgruntled employee, or a mixture of both.

I'm not in a position to recommend anything here except to read and enjoy the zombie apocalypse link above.

If you go beyond that, well, I didn't take you to raise. :-)
