    Congratulations to Melanie! I’m so happy to see I’m not the only one who uses the old bowl and a shake :). I loved your most recent post too. People can be ridiculous.

    HI Michelle :-)
    Seeings how you often read my postings, you know that I love to give credit where credit is “due”. If I did get the recipe from a particular person, I give them the credit for it. If I know I got inspired from one particular source, I tell about it. When I mention a comment that a TV character would say, I put in a link to info. about said character. Heck, in the side bar of our blog, we even have a “giving credit where credit is due” section. So yes, I believe in giving credit where credit is “due”.

    And yes, I like to get the credit when it’s “due” me. Years ago now, our church did up it’s own cookbook. A particular person in the church submitted a handful of recipes, stating they were HER recipes. The thing is, the mass majority of them were recipes that she had asked for and been given by others of us. And yes, several of them had been from me. A couple of them being ones I had made up myself. So yes, I was irked when I received my copies of the cookbook and saw her name listed on MY recipes.

    Now, both of those things being said, I would like to start my clarifiers of them. πŸ˜‰

    My giving credit to all kinds of things, including comments from TV characters, is just me. It’s not something new due t o being a blogger. It’s just the way I’ve chosen to operate. “My” way is not ALWAYS the right way, or necessarily even the “Best” way. It’s just plain and simple “my” way. And seeings how it’s “my” blog, I do it “my” way. o;-p

    Being a longer term reader of your blog(s), I know that you DO give credit where credit is “due” on your recipes. You almost always state that you got the recipe from such and such a place, but then this is the adaptions to it that you personally made. πŸ˜‰ Good job friend!

    And if it is a recipe you personally made up, you often even share with us what had inspired you to create it, a recent example being your peanut butter cup brownies. πŸ˜‰

    A thing (or maybe two o;-p) about the “giving credit where credit is “due”.”
    Notice the word “due”. It is a highly important word! In-fact, in the main situation this posting is about, it is the clincher word. The “gentlemen” (as you referred to him) is “due” something simply because he was told that you had visited his blog? Goodness!!!! How to put a quick end to blog hopping!!!!!!!!! Yes, you could visit other peoples blogs and never tell a soul about it, and thus hopefully be ‘safe’, but my luck would be that the blog owner would have the capabilities of “Tim McGee” from NCIS and thus be able to track down everybody that had been to their sight and I would be in trouble. ;-p!

    You are ever so right about how those of us with creative minds get inspiration from everywhere. I do to such an extinct, that I don’t ‘get’ how some people don’t.
    Your also right about how teachers can and do inspire their students. I too have been on both ends of that stick. The best credit I get from having ‘taught’, is to see people whom have been students following paths I have helped steer them to.

    Michelle, you ever so graciously kept referring to the other blog owner who was frustrating you to no end, as a “gentlemen”. I don’t think his actions qualify him as one. But hey, that’s just my perspective. Then again, this is my comment. o;-p

    I LOVE the picture of the brick showing through a broken wall ‘cowboy’!!!! THAT is being inspired!!! ;-p

    Here is a smile for you today my friend. :-> And a hug ;-D …. Please know that others of us out here think highly of you.
