I want my BPP!!!

Mondays are rarely anyone's favorite day of the week, but yesterday sucked even more than usual when I was greeted with the news that NPR is pulling the plug on my favorite program, The Bryant Park Project.  Granted, the two-hour morning news show was considered an experiment from the start, but it was by all …

Fun with SPAM…

Like most people, I suspect, I barely look at e-mail of unknown origin before deleting it. But for the past year or so I’ve been an officer in a local ex-pat club and as such have a generic club e-mail alias pointing to my personal address.  This alias (let’s call it grandpoobah@expats-r-us.com) is listed on the …
