Sunday Ramblings…

I went to see Florence and the Machine in concert this week and for once I have GOOD pictures. I don’t have to say – see that dot? That’s Florence…..really…I saw her live! lol


The concert was incredible! I saw her last year and I loved her but I have to say this concert was even better.

So back to bloggy stuff!

The ever so polite spam comments keep on coming! Here are a few of the odder ones.
”An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was doing a little research on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast because I stumbled upon it for him... lol. So allow me to reword this... . Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about this subject here on your website. Feel free to visit my page…”

“whoah this blog is great i really like studying your posts. Stay up the great work! You realize, many people are hunting round for this info, you could help them greatly. Stop by my weblog…”

"І have been surfing online moгe than thгee hours today, yet I never found any іnteгestіng article like yοurs. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before. Here is my page…”

“I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both eԁucative and amusing, and without a doubt, уou have hіt the nail on thе head. The iѕѕue іs something not enough peoрle are sρеаking intelligently abоut. I am verу hapρy Ӏ stumbled аcroѕs thіs in my hunt for somethіng сοncernіng this. Also see my web page…”

I’m so glad my blog can be helpful to so many people. *snickers*

I thought they were kind of funny at first but now I'm getting 3-4 per day so it's just annoying. Luckily my spam filter blocks all of them.

What I read:

Blades of Winter by G.T. Almasi
Torched by Andrea Lynn Colt

Well that’s all for this week’s wrap-up! Anything new and exciting in your world?


  1. So happy you were able to provide a spammer with a free meal, due to your intelligent, interesting information. :-)

    Glad Florence was wondrous!

  2. Oh my gosh. Florence. So jealous! Are you excited for the new Mumford & Sons album coming out this week? Other groups that I've gotten into lately include Cold Specks, First Aid Kit, and The Lumineers.

    1. I've heard a few of the M&S songs so I'm looking forward to the new album!

      I'll have to check out those other groups. I've only listened to the Lumineers. THeir going to be on my Tune in Tuesday this coming week :-)

    2. For Cold Specks, listen to Blank Maps. For First Aid Kit, listen to The Lion's Roar. I also like The Walkmen's song Heaven and Kishi Bashi's Bright Whites.

  3. ..LOL. Those spam comments are weird. My fav was one I once got from someone stuck in Russia

  4. Oh gosh, those are some really polite spam comments! Glad you had a great time at the concert!

  5. Love the pictures and thanks for alerting me to new bands. Hate spam comments too

  6. Ahhh, love the polite spam. I got Torched a couple weeks ago. I'm pretty excited to read it.
    Happy Reading!

  7. Gawd, I LOVE Flo! And those ARE great pics! :) Hehe...I've been seeing a lot more of that kind of SPAM on my blog, too. Like you, I thought it was funny at first, but it's really starting to get annoying. :( I also got Torched a couple of weeks ago...really excited to read it. Might actually try to make room for it in the next week or so.
