OK, now this is strange

I sometimes go to my Sitemeter and click on "recent visitors by details" to see what sort of people are reading my blog. Lately I've noticed some strange visitors indeed. Click on the picture to read the details better.

This visitor, twice yesterday, from the Department of Justice....


And this one, today, from the Department of the Treasury.

They didn't stick around long, but good grief... I've paid my taxes and I don't think I've broken the law. Reminds me of the old Gospel song, "There's an Eye Watching You".

Just in case somebody thinks I'm concerned about this, I'm not. I imagine our government has web-crawling bots going all over the Internet looking for terrorists. Just my guess.

I wouldn't worry donna, you say you are up to snuff in your life ...it may have been a random thing, or it may have someone else that has linked to you that they are really looking for.
just my thoughts from a simple loopymama

Their visits were brief, 1 second and 0 seconds. It's probably someone goofing off on the job.

I wouldn't worry either. It has happened to me many times too. But it's not a random thing. It's called "The Patriot Act", among other legal spying laws. It happens to everyone that's on the Internet. With our new President, some this absolute privacy invasion will disappear. I understand we all need to be safe and that does involve at times "spying", but the bush administration took it way too far. Just my humble opinion :)

I bet they're doing what I do. Find a blog I like and then do I quick email to myself with the blog link in it so I can read it later...

Or maybe they're stalking you 'cause they want your potato soup recipe. Hee...

Well, the first one was specifically looking at your entry, "How Long Can A Cold Last" so it was probably just someone who happens to work for the government who Googled that....

The second one was to your general blog address, so maybe the first person liked your blog and told a fellow worker. Who knows?

I get some strange visitors and searches too...
