Helpful Ferret Tips

How would we ever get through a day without our friends at Google? (Or are you "Binging" now)? No more "what was the name of that movie?" or "who wrote...?" When I was a kid, “search engines” is what we called our man-hunting robots. Nowadays, the tips of our tongue are no longer cluttered with information we can't ...quite...grasp.

What I can't figure out is how to scan the interwebs for useful intelligence without succumbing to temptations that drag me down unexpected paths. This morning, for example, I googled the name of a foundation trustee to prepare for a site visit. My donor espionage project was waylaid by search results that revealed a fellow who shares the name of my search target. This other guy happens to be an expert on ferrets, as I learned from this description:

“John Doe [name changed] is a ferret enthusiast and almost killed his pet ferret Freddie. He decided to dive in and learn everything he could about ferrets. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with you in hopes you don't make the same mistakes he did.”

Who wouldn't want to investigate further?

Unable to resist the siren call, I found myself at E-zine Articles, a website at which aspiring "content providers" can publish informative articles on a range of subjects. The site describes itself with this mouthful: “We are an article marketing, publicity generating, pre-qualified traffic building, and article exposure service designed to get your expert articles in front of our content-hungry ezine publisher audience.” Posting articles on the site reportedly “boosts your credibility and begins the trust cycle with your readership.

If that’s true, then ferret experts are well on their way to building healthy trust cycles. The following is just a small selection of articles about ferrets that are available from the site. I have edited neither the titles nor the apercus accompanying them. (If these furry animals bore you, I suggest you substitute “beard” for “ferret").

Bizzare, I know... but, twice in my life I have had ferrets just walk into my house. Both times were is Seattle & I had the house wide open on a summer day. Both times (not once but twice), they walked right in & plopped themselves down in exhaustion. Both times, I had terriers go nutty.
I thought they were very cute, but stinky & both times I placed an ad for "found ferret" & someone claimed them. Cute, stinky & with a real resemblance to Richard Nixon.

I often wonder what my kids'll say when I tell them that there was no internet when I was a kid. If I had a question and my parents didn't know the answer, I just had to wonder. Thus, ferret questions weren't even worth asking. I'm glad we've past those dark ages.

Stephen, I guess you could call yourself a ferret-magnet.

Allie, In the future, all knowledge will be beamed into a person's cranium before he or she even knows what the question is going to be. Jeopardy won't be nearly as much fun to watch, so they'll disconnect Alex Trebec's life support.
