  1. Those spam emails drive me crazy, too.
    I found you through a comment on Dane Bramage. I wish he'd get moving and blog a bit more again! I miss him!

  2. Yeah, Dane needs to get bloggin' again, he's witty and wise! :-) Thanks for popping by, come back again, Lyn from Bloggin' Outloud

Keep it clean and positive. (And sorry about the word verification, but the spmb*ts are out in full force!)
