I'm Rich! almost

Since Spaces changed format a few months ago, my email spam has changed. I'm getting a lot of weirdo email, and I never have before. Well, except know who you I'm quite the International "Who's Who", I'm getting emails from all over the world. Evidently, Nigeria is the place to be right now, lots of money floating around, I can't wait until my loot gets here.

I didn't even know I had relatives in Lome, Togo. I thought that was in the South Pacific, but no, believe it or not, it's next to my relatives in Ghana and Nigeria. There's a little country called Benin in between, so far I haven't heard from anyone there. Anyway, evidently I come from quite wealthy family, and I'll be receiving millions of US dollars very soon. I'm so excited! I've already gone shopping and written checks on a few items.

Here are a couple of excerpts from today's emails:

I am Barrister George Godwin, a legal practitioner, I am the personal attorney to Mr.J.Jannaj, a national Of your country, who used to work with Shell Development Company in Lome Togo. He used to be my client.


I have a profiling amount in an excess of US$19MILLION, which I seek you to accommodate for me. You will be rewarded with 30% of the total sum for your partnership. We deal on Gold,  HMS 1 & 2, COCO, RS 50/60.

The funds  have  since left to a  private financial  institution where the where the fund was deposited.While I was on the process, my boss recently got arrested on January 19th,2009  for his involvement in politics by financing the leading and opposing political parties in our country Ghana.

All I need from you is to stand as the beneficiary of the above mentioned sum and  I will  re-profile the funds with your data, which will enable the financial company release the money.This transaction has to be concluded as soon and as I confirm your readiness to proceed with me,I will provide you with details.

I hate this stuff showing up, and this is just scam spam. The weird stuff makes me want to cancel my account. Ewwww.


Where's the beef? Or pork?

I am SO happy over the weather! I even have a little bit of a sunburn from working outside last weekend.I cleaned up leaves and branches and cleaned, sanded and painted the charcoal grill. It's all ready for you to bring ribs over! Wouldn't it be cool if we could have everyone on our friend's list over for a barbecue?


I'm going to a church retreat this coming weekend, I'm really looking forward to it. It's supposed to be rainy and in the 40's, but even staying inside will be great.
