It appears that a blogger has been copying and using content from several blogs and passing it off as her own, including content from this blog.
"Thinking" has now been found out and this evening she has made her blog invitation only. She should do the decent thing, shut her blog down and learn from her mistakes.
Having made her blog 'invitation only' I cannot contact her to tell her to cease and desist, thus I am publishing the following letter for "Thnking":
Dear Sir or Madam,
You are using a work that I own the copyright of. The name of the work involved is “Conversations with a four year old - the one about being late” and "Anything you can do............." from "Workingmumonverge.blogspot.com". It appears on a site operated by you at http://thinking-lifeandyou.blogspot.com. I have reserved all rights to this work, which was first published on http://workingmumonverge.blogspot.com/2009/03/conversations-with-four-year-old-one_14.html and http://workingmumonverge.blogspot.com/2009/03/anything-you-can-do.html in 2009.
Your copying and or use of my work, which appear at the link above, is unauthorized. You neither asked for nor received permission to use the piece nor to make or distribute copies of them in the manner you have. Furthermore, you have taken credit for my work and caused confusion as to whom the original author of the work is. Therefore, I believe you have willfully infringed my rights under 17 USC §101, et seq. and could be liable for statutory damages as high as $100,000. Further, such copyright infringement is a direct violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and International Copyright Law.
I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of the work and all copies of it, that you remove any further works you may have stolen and that you desist from this or any other infringement of my rights in the future. Furthermore, I demand that you post an apology on the site clarifying who the real author is and that you inform others that might have been misled by your misuse of the works’ origins.
If I have not received proof of compliance from you within 72 hours, I shall consider taking the full legal remedies available to rectify this situation including contacting my lawyer and/or your site’s administrators.

Update, 29 Aug 2011: Both of "Thinking"'s blogs have now been removed. I would like to thank Yellow Gal for alerting me to the plagiarism and to Fi from Four Paws and Whiskers and Crystal Jigsaw for their invaluable help.
