    Word to the wise
    And this spammer has the oddest ( and ewwww) posts. I know the administrator will take care of it, especially if we all click the Report As Offensive option. But it occurs to me that even more than being a nuisance~ some of us unwisely post our email addresses, and names and phone numbers (YIKES!) here on the site, actually giving the Spammers access to our computers and possibly to us! Be Careful not to do that, Kindred Spirits!

    Keep private stuff - Private
    This is why you should never give out any personal info about yourself on here. If you want to correspond with someone, PM them or use instant messenger or something. There are a lot of weirdos out there obviously.

    Spammers
    Of all the places to pull such a thing , they should be ashamed of themselves. However , coming from a background where I see a lot of this I will only tell you what you already probably know. DO NOT open emails that you do not recognize , DO NOT accept instant messages from people you do not know an DO NOT download something that you do not research first. Either Google , yahoo , or any search engine to check its legitimacy because I can guarantee you if someone has been burned by it they are talking about it. Besides , if your computer is busted then we can't all communicate together here and that's a bad thing.

    Best Wishes

    Daft Sod! It was, of course, the home canning and cutlery course! How wrong can you be?...I was also interested in the following courses:

    1. How to Bonsai your pet.

    2. Needlecraft for junkies.

    3. How to mould your childs' behaviour through Fear and Guilt.

    Please send me your out of date mags on these subjects.............LOL

    Hugs to you always Jxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    I have 2 of the 3 magazines
    I have 2 of the 3 magazines almost completely finished...they will be off to you soon, I promise! I'm having to keep the Bonsai one a bit longer~ my dog is looking decidely un-zenlike, and I need further instruction.He is really not fond of me tying his legs together and not giving him much water, but I don't know how else to stunt his growth AND make him fit in that cute ceramic planter! LOL

    I went to a 12 step for needlepoint, I am free of that habit. Sadly it was replaced by a sock darning fetish, and so far, there are no support meetings anywhere nearby.
    So, as Reggie told me just this evening, it SOCKS to be me right now!!!!

    I didn't even need to read any of the articles about moulding a child's behaviour thru guilt; is there any other way????!!! Look how well I turned out with my parents having used those very techniques!
