When the word Spam is spoken it likely conjures up one of two images for you: unwanted email or mystery meat in a can. I would like to go on record and state that we enjoy neither of them!
Anyone who uses a computer is familiar with the former, and more modern definition. Fortunately the filters on my email accounts block the majority of it. I just wish those Viagra peddlers would realize that they’ve got the wrong guy on their list! Most of you may not be aware that even this Blog is not safe from spammers. If it were not for the plugin Akismet, which blocks spam from being posted to this blog, I would have a lot more work to do.
Now, with respect to the “food” definition (I had to put the word food in quotes, for reasons that are likely obvious to many of you), we don’t enjoy that either. We did try though, really, as having the ability to stock our boat with some inexpensive food products that have a shelf life of a couple of millennia did sound appealing, but after several attempts at eating the stuff, we both had to call it quits on the idea. I think my parents must have traumatized me with this stuff when I was a kid!
