    Congratulations Kim on your 100th post. It is always interesting to see what you are going to post next.

    Isn't all the spam awful. I actually saw this banner that asked:

    Has someone stolen your social security number?

    Enter it here to find out!

    DOH.

    Stopping by for Click & Comment Monday from snoskred's blog.

    Hello Kim,

    Congratulations on your 100th post!!! This is indeed a great achievement. The way I'm going (like a snail), I wonder when my 100th will come. *he he he*

    Keep up the good work :)

    I win prizes every day. Going from £1000 to several millions. Usually a foreign lottery scam.
    Another one is an email from some big shots secretary who needs to transfer his money because he's in some kind of political problem. They ask if they can transfer the money to your account and you get 30%.
    I did some research on that and what it is : they find some way to charge you for the transfer but the tranfer never happens. So they keep your money and you get nothing. They get smarter and smarter.

    Congratulations on your win and the 100th post too of course.

    Unfortunately you will have to fight me for the prize money. There must have been some mistake as I won the grand prize too. -)
