CAGW Commercial

The same one which is playing on TV now. Very scary, but to be honest, I saw this coming years ago. We can either limit our purchases of Chinese products, put a tariff on those coming into this country and causing our own industries to fade away and/or punish them for their theft of intellectual property.

Or, learn to speak Chinese.

We are giving them the money of which to buy the rope that will hang us.

Alton Brown's Nose

Celebrity chef Alton Brown meets fans at the 2nd annual gumbo cook-off on Dauphin Island

Naw, that's not really his nose, but is a screenshot of a video from a link I followed on "Alton Brown for President" on Facebook. I just thought it really funny...and bet he would, too. Here's the video link:

The Bird is the Word

You Are a Crow

You are highly intelligent and have a lot of mental strength.

You value self-reliance, and you work hard every day to improve your life.

You believe that life is magical, and you are always looking for new and exciting opportunities.

You follow your own path, and the turns you take are often unexpected and inspired.

Can't have this quiz or the title w/out this video!

A Little Concerned

Opened up my GMail acct. early this morning and found the spam folder more full than usual. I didn't save any of the msgs. but a large number were both to and from the acct. along with "bounced" emails with the CC containing every address in my addy book and even more that I have no idea where they came from (such as old ones I never use, some created for MSN Groups, such as 4R Mgrs and Smiliemail)

Checking the details of account activity, I saw that someone in Spain had accessed my account. I immediately changed the password and had it sign out of all other accounts. Here's the IP number:

Checking on the IP# at an online IP Lookup site, it gave the originating domain, but clicking on the link gave me a "page not found".

I hope none of my friends w/ valid email accounts will be affected. I have no idea how my account was compromised - I keep my Firefox browser up-to-date, as well as the Java, Flash and Shockwave apps updated.

Again, if you get spam from "me" or any other accounts that were in my address book, I'm really sorry. I'm always extremely careful about my online security.

confute \ con·fute\ [kuhn-fyoot] –verb (used with object), -fut·ed, -fut·ing.
1. to prove to be false, invalid, or defective; disprove: to confute an argument.
2. to prove (a person) to be wrong by argument or proof: to confute one's opponent.
3. Obsolete . to bring to naught; confound.

When I first read this word and definition, I thought it was very similar to "refute" and after looking it up, found I was right.

Can't confute OR refute me on that.

Only Boobs

Would fall for this type of spam.

From my GMail junk mail folder:


Howdy How are you currently doing? I like your profile.

Are you interested to see my best private images?

E-mail me at uiorobidegl@hotmail.com and i'll answer back with my private photographs.


The originating email address was:


The reason I include it is I hope the spambots pick up on it, as well as the Hotmail addy and the sender gets a multitude of Viagra, free restaurant meal coupons w/ completion of survey (and credit card info) and offers to enlarge a certain body part just as I do.

With the "Gday! subject line and the "Howdy" salutation, I could deduce that the sender might be a Texas porn star now living in Australia.  More likely it's probably some 50 yr. old ugly, hairy dude in Moscow with ties to the Russian Mafia.

Still, I was tempted to reply back if only to see the "private images";  the public ones are pretty hot.  No, she doesn't have square nipples - I had to censor it to publish it in this G-rated blog.

Maybe it's harsh of me to say only boobs would fall for this sort of scam; I probably should instead say only idiots who love boobs would be taken in.

Me? I like boobs, but I'm no idiot. A little thick at times, but not an idiot.


Just got another mail from Angel w/ same photos but different message and email addy. Here it is with the hopes "she" will be bombarded w/ spam, too.


Got yet another one - same photos and message but different reply to addy
