my friends are not spam

Dear Yahoo Mail,

We have had a long and for the most part good relationship, but my heart is feeling sad and anger is starting to bubble over because you have decided that my friends are spam. I just want you to know they are not spam. They are the people who brighten my day. I love reading their blog posts and you, in your infinite wisdom, have chosen to send them to my spam file. So I will now be rethinking our relationship and checking that pesky spam folder each day to see who you have trashed. 

Sincerely,
Laura

P.S. Those emails that you do let in informing me that I have won one million dollars in the UK lottery and to just send five thousand dollars to get it are indeed spam. Maybe your filters need a little fine tuning.



I began to wonder if everyone had stopped blogging for the last couple of weeks, as none of the posts were showing up in my email. As I am a little slow on the uptake, I finally decided to check my spam folder, and oh my goodness, there you all were. 

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!

So, I will be spending a little less time stopping to smell the roses this weekend as I will be trying to catch up on all of your wonderful posts.

  10. I have you on my sidebar, that way I can't miss you, my friend!
    I had some spam issues on the blog this week. All of a sudden, one of my posts had 76 comments.

    I have had a crazy work week so I am way behind on my comments and responses. I always appreciate your visits! Have a great weekend, Laura!

  11. Oh I so hate when my email filter does that and for no particular reason. I am like you I want the good stuff and for Pete Sake if we want to refinance our home we will find a lender. Thank you for visiting me and for you kind words. See you soon and big hugs, Beverly
