things that make me go hmmm

I got an email yesterday that gave me pause.
It claimed to be from an American woman who had found my blog via search engine and wanted to know a couple of specific (seemingly innocent) things about the military base. #1, I couldn't get to my blog by searching for what she was searching for. #2, My blog doesn't give my email address anywhere (as far as I know). #3, Some information is best not given.

So I'm posting for a couple of reasons. If it really was a legitimate email question, sorry but I won't be answering you in case you aren't who you claim.
Also, I would like to know if any internet savvy people can get to my email address by my blog.

Makes me wonder if I ought to blog so freely... On the other hand, given #1 and 2 above, I wonder if the email was totally Phishing and had nothing to do with this blog at all. On the other hand, maybe it really was just a lonely American on foreign soil. And as Bob says, that's already more hands than any one person ought to have. :-) If you ask for my opinion, I'm likely to give you all of them.

Maybe someone has hacked into your blog profile? Is that possible? That's scarey but then I've had e~mails from Zambewei or somewhere promising to make me a fortune & who knows how they got my e~mail but the best was the suppossed female who wanted an older woman to mentor her. Pardon? You can't find someone local who speaks your language to do this? Strange things happen on the net. I wouldn't answer it but I don't think there's any need to be paranoid either.

Not paranoid, just keeping my eyes open. Some of the email scams are just goofy.

I tried to find a way to email you through your blog and couldn't.

I couldn't find it here either.
