I have to spend a bit of time each day cleaning out comments from spammers advertising mainly illegal prescription drugs online. Continue reading →

The Sad Decline of Delta Airlines

I am hoping Delta survives their financial woes because it has been my only direct flight from LA to Tampa – a trip I make every year to the town I grew up in. Continue reading →

All Spammers Must Die, Or At least Be Really Injured

Well, I had my first taste of “trackback spam” today – I saw a bunch of these notifications come in one after another. “Oh my!” I exclaimed! “Someone likes my blog!”

Silly me. Continue reading →
