I have been plagued with spam lately. It comes in as contacts from this page. I have been unable to rid myself of this problem so far. Every time that I check my e-mail I have to delete a bunch of useless and very undesirable stuff. The danger is that I inadvertently delete a real message – a contact from a real live human out there that I would like to talk to.
Tonight I almost hit delete but caught myself just in time to pick up this very interesting message:
|SUBJECT:||Ugly Brown Cookbook|
|COMMENTS:||I have been search for a copy/s of “The Canadian Cookbook” published by McGraw. It was a coveted cookbook in my family and has faded, lost pages and some corners have just crumbled away. When I say a reference to the old ugly brown cookbook in a clipping of a Google search I had to ask…where oh where can I find a copy or two. If you do not wish to respond that is alright, the search will go on. Thank you.|
I know this book. It was a fabulous cookbook. It was thick and ugly and brown but I used it for years. I too would love to have a copy of it. Mine was left in the Congo when we left in a hurry.
Can’t you just see what would happen – “Missionary wife loses her mind – evacuates with dirty brown cookbook. Leaves clothes behind!”
Anyway, I can appreciate the person’s wish to get a copy of this book. One does have to be of a certain age to recognize the book we are speaking of. The newer versions were not half as good.
