I never used to get spam, but recently for some reason the readership on here has doubled, this is wonderful of course, but now the spam is coming in thick and fast. I get notifications about emails and eagerly go to see who is writing to me and then find it is spam. So disappointing.
It isn't nice at all. Why do they do it? I am never going to click on a link from an anonymous source. How do I stop them? There must be a way. Fortunately they rarely get as far as the comments section on here, but I suppose it is just a matter of time.There must be some reasoning behind these things, but for the life of me I just cannot figure out what it might be. Maybe it is just the price to pay for being popular. What must it be like for those blogs with hundreds, or thousands of followers?

After that I went down to Tricia's house and spent some time talking to her three dogs and two cats. The dogs hate it when Tricia isn't there and take to their beds for the duration of her absence. I am sure they are sulking. It definitely isn't pining, because they still like their food. I didn't take them out, because they are always reluctant to go with me. Two of them are quite elderly, and the other one Dixie follows their example and won't come with me either. She did condescend to come and play ball in the paddock though. She sure does love chasing!
I had a sleep this afternoon for a couple of hours. Went out like a light. All these late nights are catching up with me. I was woken by a phone call from my lovely neighbour Yola, asking if I would like to have some dinner. Would I? Too right I would! Pot Roast Brisket and root vegetables and a fruit pudding. Delicious! She is a fantastic cook. She already has a man, otherwise I would offer to marry her!
And now it is night. The clocks went back this morning at two. It is a strange time to do it. I am sure most people would rather go to bed, but no, rules is rules and we all have to stay up and change them at two o'clock. There is probably a way of avoiding staying up, but I can't think of it!
Sadie and Bonnie are sleeping and snoring gently. My eyes are heavy. I shall have an early night. Probably fall asleep reading my book.
Good night and may your God bless you.
