Sorry for the terrible pun. I have been waiting to use that one for the last fortnight!
Went t a car boot sale at Verdin park this morning as the sun was out temporarily despite some cheeky grey clouds creeping along close behind.
Got a few old photos in a book shaped box that splits in two and some smaller ones in an album. £2 for each which i thought a bargain. I can't help but think what they may have cost in Norway. An arm and a leg I suspect. I did buy an old postcard at an ANTIKK shop in the countryside, just outside Hamar. It cost me 30k which is about three quid. I wish I'd bought some more but it seemd a bit extravagant at the time - watching the pennies.
Also got a 1973 Topper annual for Archie but he already has it.
Archie got a big stack of Simpsons and Futurama comics so he was happy as Larry (whoever he might be?) and Hazel got a small tapestry/sampler thing in a frame she's going to sew into a cushion cover.
Archie has gone off to his friend Jame's house for the afternoon. Hazel is reading the sunday papers and I'm catching up with the blogs and e-mails. A pretty typical sunday with the clouds getting greyer and the rain coming again.

What's going on with all the spam hitting various sites in the comments section lately? Is there any way to turn it back on them?

Surely they don't make any money with it. What kind of idiot is going to say, "Gee, I really need to buy some stock and here's just what I need?"

Do you think it would do any good to report them to Google? Maybe the Google Police would throw them in the Spammer Slammer.

lol Michael...good one!
As for the spammers, we got hit too! and yes, I reported but who knows what will be done?
It's always great fun to look through old photos...especially if you know the person, but even when not.
You will have to show the finished product of Hazel's "upholstery"...should be interesting!

michael, for the origin of the expression "Happy as Larry" see World Wide Words: http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-lar1.htm. I don't know if you have come across this site but it is one of the most well respected and reliable word sites on the web

Thanks for the link Bren. I will take a look. I wonder if the origins of "Sick As A Parrot" will be there too?
