Happy Friday! I'm off to my knitting group for an afternoon of beverages, gossip, and good yarn. And perhaps a wee chiding conversation about the incessant forwarding of spam.

We haven't had a Jake of the Week in some time. I know, I know. I don't wanna hear about it. This shot evokes images in my head in ways I am not going to detail here. Let's just say I'm jealous of the cattle dog.

Is someone in your knitting group forwarding you spam?

Personally I hate getting the chain letters. How stupid are people who pass these on? I always delete despite the cavete I "will die soon" if its done. Haven't died yet....

Or those ones that say "pass on to 10 friends within 10 minutes and something good will happen" What the hell does that mean? How in the world does anyone benefit from passing on an email? Are these started by people to collect emails or what?

and my personal favorite: "Bill Gates is doing beta testing. Pass this on to xx number of people and you will receive a cheque for $$$$" Yeah right! DELETE!

ffleur - A handful of the ladies in the knitting group are grandmas and relatively new to email. So they're in that newbie stage where every joke they see is new and hysterical, every chain letter profound, every photograph amazing, blah blah blah. I've been online for going on 12 years now and I think I've seen it all. They are sweet and mean well, they just don't know how many times some of these things have been around. Don't worry, I'm gentle.
