Death Notice of Ned Carey

October 8th, 2009 · 17 Comments

I just read a Google alert that mentioned the death of the writer of this blog,  Ned Carey

Death Notice Of Ned CAREYNed Carey

Reposing at his residence today, Tuesday, from 4pm to 8pm. Requiem Mass tomorrow, Wednesday, at 2.30pm in Mitchelstown Parish Church.

Fortunately as Mark Twain once said “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.”  I am certainly alive and well.

I had earlier set up a Google alert so that whenever Google finds my name on the internet it sends me an e-mail.  Imagine my surprise to open the e-mail and see my own death notice. I’ve never been dead before and I didn’t quite know how to react. I clicked through to the link above to find out it was Ned Carey from Cork Ireland.  I felt better immediately.  I guess my enemies will have to stop rejoicing, hopefully for a very very long time.

Google Alerts

I do recommend people set up a Google alert for their name.  It’s fun to  see what people are writing about you, and you might be surprised what you find out about yourself.  It is a free service.  You can get it here.  Google Alerts

You can use it not only to track your own name but your business or a competing business, friends, enemies, political figures or your favorite sports team.

Have fun,

    Wow, I was a little shocked until I read on. So glad you are alive! Didn’t that happen to a famous writer and actress lately?

    Holy shit. I almost coughed up my Cheerios when I saw that email. Don’t do that again.

    Craig, good to hear from you. We should get together soon.

    Cheryl, I’m not sure who you are referring too but I am sure I am not the first one this happened to.

    Dude, you really startled me with this one. My eyes got big and my heart sank.

    “I felt better immediately.” – Hilarious!

    Glad you’re still alive. Please don’t die soon.

    Nice way to grab my attention Ned. Ages ago I set up google alert for the phrase blogsire, one of my other blogs, and I think it’s about time to update it to include some other phrases. Thanks for prompting me to act on this matter.

    Oh. Let me know when you have Flexsqueeze up and running. I’d love to see what you do with it.

    Sire, I use the Flexibility theme (free version) at I’ll let you know when I have Flex Squeeze up and running. – Ned

    Just had a look Ned and it looks very professional. Did you find it easier to set up using Flexibility than it would have using another theme?

    Sire, With other themes I have used, I just used them out of the box except for minor changes like the header picture. The exception was thesis which I spent a lot of time with and then gave up. Flexibility made changes easy.

  • 10 Sire (53 comments.) // Nov 1, 2009 at 12:40 am

    Yeah I know all about Thesis. Even with the updates it’s nowhere as flexible as Flexibility. Reckon that’s how it got it’s name. 😀

    Now that’s funny! I’m on Google Alerts myself, but I’m not expecting to see my name ever popping up for something like that.

    Congratulations on your return from the grave. I know that I would have been a bit taken aback. Thankfully you had your Alert set in order to prevent a shock to everyone else.

    I use Google Alert for linkbuilding. Whenever I find a site that put my link in their site, I would ask them to turn it into anchor text link of my choice.

  • 15 Ned // Jan 19, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I use Google alerts for the same thing. I get an emial every time google finds another link to my site.

    Ned What.s the chances of a judge to reopoen a case allowing the home owner to redeem their property .relating to tax sale in baltimore.

  • 17 Ned // Jul 27, 2011 at 1:46 am

    Thanks for reading and commenting. Generally they will hear a challenge to the foreclosure within 30 days of the court decree for foreclosure. It used to be almost automatic that the courts would side with the owner and let him or her redeem. It has gotten tougher but within 30 days there is still a decent chance.

    Noe it is a totally different matter if the foreclosure wasn’t handled property. For example someone who was not notified can have a legitimate claim to reopen the case. A good example would be in the case of a deceased owner and an heir wasn’t notified of the pending foreclosure.
