We all have those kind of days where we are worried by profound questions. You know the sort of thing - 'where do I come from', 'what does it all mean?', 'where's my flying car?'

So it is for our very own Kieren McCarthy, a troubled youth prone to periods of self doubt and despair. Only last week the lad was gripped by the 'black dog' when, spookily, this arrived from one Erica Taylor:

Dear Friend,

It is a blessing that I am able to reach you. I have some important information for you,it's about your future and your love life. I have the answer, to what is blocking you from having happiness and love in your life. You have been praying for an answer, wanting to know what is wrong and if it can or will change. As a psychic I have the ability to give you these answer.

When you prayed concerning these matters, I was placed on a spiritual path to find you. You have been searching for answers and feeling blocked and confused about a personal relationship or lack of one. I didn't know if this was an actual e-mail address revealed in my vision or not. However, I have been in my field long enough to know I must follow my vision whereever it may lead me,at this time I feel it is leading me to you. If you contact me,I will then know you are the one my vision is leading me to. I must serve to provide you with information regarding your matter.

For Kieren, it was as if the sun had come out. The rest of us just proceeded straight to the disclaimer:

p.s. If this letter does not apply to your situation please except my apology and excuse this letter.

We accept your apology, love, now push off back to your crystal ball.
