Wading through


in search of gems.

Letters from you

lost in the


since Yahoo

decided everything from

WordPress is spam.

I’m journeying

into a black

Carpal tunnel.

  1. I’ve had a bad day. But thanks for the smile.

  2. Ugh! I had a similar problem. I kept my Yahoo account but my Google Gmail email is my primary email. I got tired of slogging. Yahoo acts too much like a Yahoo and I don’t want to search for my email messages. Buried treasure might be fun but not in the case of emails. Hope that you’re able to rest your wrists!

    Yikes! I hate when that happens!

  4. This one’s cool, there’s usually more within the mundane…

    • 11 messages I needed buried in 4623 I didn’t. >sigh< I can't seem to find a way to tell the spam filters they're wrong, pages of "This is not spam" transfers don't seem to convince them. Where Yahoo says to click to make my own filters does not actually exist in the Yahoo mail program I use, so that's pointless. Their updated program crashes my computer, so that's pointless. Things are getting annoying around here!

    I wish I was as exceptional as you are at conveying a point in so few words.

    I’m new and terrified of spam!! I had a blog on another website for 60 days, as planned. the 61st day, here it came!!! Yikes , I’ve never had to deal with it before. What is the best way to avoid it on this site. The spam widget?

    Love taking ordinary topics and letting it turn into flowing thoughts! Well done!
