Got this e-mail — My Alphabe-Thursday (2nd), the letter "S" / Thursday Two Questions —
"Got this e-mail:"
Today my "S" is for Smile and for Spam. When I get these crazy Spam e-mailings I generally Smile. They may be funny jokes, they may be malicious to my computer, or they may be stupid things that no one should believe (big whoppers about elected officials or candidates are prime, so also are those that tell you about how the government or big business is ripping you off, etc).
First, smile when you see this YouTube showing what happened to Mark's computer when he clicked on something he should not have:
Oh yes, you can still get my Adi (she died September 17, 2012) with the Christmas tree on my YouTube at

Now, to share the first Spam e-mail that I got (smile, please):
Date: Tue Mar 26 20:26:14 CDT 2013
And then another that no one is his right mind should fall for (I really did get both of these); a second Spam e-mail that I got (smile, please):
Date: Wed Mar 27 04:13:56 CDT 2013
Subject: Send a copy?
My dream is to create a happy and friendly family, to be the best mother for my children and the most caring wife for my beloved man.
I'm not waiting for a perfect man, I understand that we all have lacks. So if you are responsible and caring man, I would like to know you better http://xxxxxxxx.com
My post last week was about "R" word things, Red colored things that I had found on the golf course.
My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):.
1. What is your reaction to e-mailings that came to you as Spam?
I like some of them so much that I put them on my other blog, me, old blogs never read, and . . . that I don't publicise but is mostly for me. A few will read it now and then.
2. What do you think about e-mailing the sender back telling the truth or your viewpoint? Would your answer be different if it was a friend doing the sending?
Before I decided it was not nice I would send him back a Spoof Report from one of the blog sites that answer for the truthfulness of chain-e-mails.
1. What is your favorite "S" word?
.==> My Questions here are for Amanda at her Thursday Two Questions blog, Self Sagacity. Please visit her there for her questions and links to other partakers of her fun blogging idea.
1. If it's in my spam folder then more than likely that's where it stays. I do get lots of jokes from people I know though and many I use.
2. Many things are sent that are not true. Most folks don't check them out. If I know you well I'll link you to the truth. If I don't I hit the delete button.
3. My favorite 'S' word is sanity. We sure could use a lot more of it.
Have a terrific day. ☺
2. I do read through the spam list and who they are from. If I recognize the sender, I will read it otherwise I delete them.
3. Favorite "s" word is Sanssouci :)It's a song made popular by Rufus Wainright and is sung by my friend Sony Holland.
Cool Gas joke :)

PS love the Adi YouTube video!
I get tons and tons and tons of spam from non-friends (businesses may or may not be for phishing) but occasionally spam will come in from them only because their contacts have been highjacked. I just hit "delete" and am done with.
I do get the emails announcing some big terrible bad, which may or may not be true. If it's not accurate or a hoax, then I just tell my sender what I learned in hopes to better educate them. Sometimes, I just don't have time for it and will hit "delete" and forget about it. Or, I'll get a notice a friend has sent me an e-greeting card. I never, ever click on those. I just send a general email to my friend that says thank you for thinking of me. I do not even send e-greeting cards because this is a good way for a hacker to gain access to your computer. Remember, I'm paranoid. :)
Sometimes I get funny or inspiring emails. If I like them then I try to share them on my blog or others in my address book. These are those only types of spam that will put a smile on my face.
Thanks for visiting today. This has been a fun 'S' post!
Thanks for your sweet compliments on my lovely granddaughter. Blessings!
I know I should be nicer because I love my Savior and He is watching over me today. That would be my favorite S word!
Happy Easter to you and yours.
