    Checked my email this morning and (GASP!) there was a piece of spam! My first one this year. Hope this is not the beginning of an avalanche.

    Very likely indeed!

    On another bulletin board, there was a post with Subject:
    How can I tell if some of the participants on this board are ignoring me?
    And, surprisingly, he got quite a number of responses!


    WRT the smilies, can we hope that a new crop of old smilies will soon be added to the repertoire?

    No, I'm sure the original quote was "I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans and spam spam spam and spam!".

    But I wouldn't swear to it!

    I'll be in northern Italy in late September, early October. If you can tell me where I can get that dish, I'll gladly hop over the border to try it. Mrs. B. and I both like a good thermidor but we've never tried it with shrimp. Do you think the chef will mind if we ask for it without the eggplant, spam, egg and, for Mrs B., without the brandy?

If you really want it you will have to go to 'jolly old', find a pub with antiquated plumbing and a Viking choir in the back room ....

    Spam, spam, spam .... Wonderful Spam!
