Phish Spam

No disrespect to the tasty canned meat or the rock band but I hate spam and phish. I don't get that much spam on my Blog comments so I'm NOT using those annoying verification puzzles you all seem so fond of.

Then up to San Francisco/ Next weekend. If you're going to be in those areas at that time, tell me quickly so we can arrange a Blogging mini confab.
