Finally............

Now that he is 2 Wyatt has gotten his back seat drivers license. He passed his exams with flying colors. The test included the screaming at the top of you lungs test, the whine til your parents go crazy, the cheerio and food throw from the back to the front seat, and finally the infamous drink spill test.... all with flying colors. I don't know if this is congratulations? But we love him regardless!

SPAM


Ok if you can't tell I hate spam -- oh I hate it with a passion. So much so that I have like 4 different email address to try and avoid it. You know like when you have to sign up for something and they ask for an email address. Well I have my free ones like yahoo and hotmail that are just infiltrated with them. So my main account which is Gmail is pretty good about blocking the spam and putting it in the spam folder. However. I noticed that more and more spam comes every week. Not a big deal at all because like I said I never have to see it or do anything about it since gmail does the great job of finding and filtering. But it still goes in the spam folder and I thought what would happen if I just let it go? How long would it take to get to 1000? 10,000? 100,000? and 1,000,000? Well I am about to find out. On August 1st I stopped 'emptying' my spam folder. Already after 21 days I have 744 spam messages ranging from fake rolex's to various body enhancements to generic drugs to whatever else that junk is. I project I should hit 1000 sometime in september but I will periodically post the number and the length of time it takes to get there for each milestone. I wonder what will happen when it hits 1,000,000? Will my gmail account die? Will the internet crumble? Will time stop? We will find out.
