Spam-A-Rama Again

Quotation of the day ~ Ian Rankin: We've all got different ways of dealing with the shit we deal with.

I wrote some time ago about how i knew that this blog was a success, because i was receiving so much spam in the comments section. So much so that i enabled comment moderation and deleted it all so that none of it had to bother you, dear reader.

But i received this today and couldn't resist sharing:

I mean, what the hell was that about? I mean, apart from a vague Ugg boots thread, i have no idea where it was going or what it wanted. It's just nonsense. And these people want your credit card information?

Anyway, here are the next five in the CD collection:

Back To St Louis

Well, okay, now that my interest in Tami Erin (see http://spriggsblog.blogspot.ca/2013/10/pippi-is-lisbeth-or-at-least-tami-is.html) has waned, we can now return to my other current fascination -- the city of St. Louis, Missouri. http://spriggsblog.blogspot.ca/2013/09/meet-me-in-st-louis-lewis.html

And what a beautiful city it would seem to be!

I  have an affinity for the place, and i realise that this began when i started listening online to the radio station K-SHE from there virtually every day. But occasionally i also listen to radio stations from Kingston, Ontario and Auckland New Zealand, and i haven't been busy researching airfares to those places. In fact i'm beginning to think that, in a previous life, i may have been a Saint Louisan.

Now, here's the thing. In my previous post, i wrote that, evidently, St Louis has a high crime rate. This turns out not to be true at all http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZFODAoYwOo

It's like Toronto. The G.T.A. (Greater Toronto Area) has a very high crime rate, but the city of Toronto is a relatively small part of the G.T.A., and has a low crime rate. The Jane-Finch corridor, however (northwestern part and well outside the city itself) is a war zone.

Anyway, back to the subject.... I'm not a baseball fan at all but in the World Series, it was St Louis vs. Boston and i was wrapped up in it. Some seat-gripping moments there! Well, okay, the Cardinals lost (to, as John Ulett called them, the "Beantown Beardies") and i was disappointed, but maybe the St Louis Blues will do better in hockey.
