Jennifer is of course the celebrity author of "Sparrow Tree Journal" which is created in an exclusive gated community in  Florence,South Carolina.

  7. A brilliant piece of investigative journalism, this post of yours. Without your information, we would never know how famous our fellow bloggers are outside the blogosphere.

    1. I know this will come as a big surprise to you Christina but Yorkshire Pudding is not my real name! Regarding my real name there is nobody in the entire world who shares it.

    2. Same for me, as far as I know.

  9. Talking of having a unique name mine certainly is not. In the medical practice at which I was registered in New Zealand there were three people named Graham Edwards in addition to myself. In addition one of the staff in The Family's dental practice was married to a Graham Edwards.

Mr Pudding welcomes all genuine comments - even those with which he disagrees. However, puerile or abusive comments from anonymous contributors will continue to be given the short shrift they deserve. Any spam comments that get through Google/Blogger defences will also be quickly deleted.
