Dear Reader, Lots of my articles are plagiarized or altered on the web to market shady (dodgy) products and services. If you find my name or my articles "submitted" or "according to Ron Hines" on other sites, or associated with any products or services for sale, please do not buy anything there. You are always welcome to link to any of his articles - but please do not tinker with them and then re-post them elsewhere on the Web. You see, I can't update or correct them when you do that. Besides, it confuses the Googlebot.

Best wishes to you and your pets,

Ron Hines
