My role as first fireman in “The Still Alarm”

30 Mar 2016 | : blog

My role as first fireman in “The Still Alarm”

In August of 1972, I arrived in Provo, Utah to take my Junior year at Brigham Young University.
I’d been there in 1969 at the Language Training Mission for 2 months for a missionary course in German.
But this time I was majoring in Communications, with some classes in Opera and German.
I even took an evening sign language class.

I lived in the Tanner apartments in the block south of the lower campus on University Avenue.
The whole city block I lived on and one set of girls apartments in the block to the East comprised the LDS branch
I belonged to.
I was chosen as a Family Group Leader of a group of boys and girls apartments formed for social activities.

I was to perform in an Opera and several of the girls from the branch and the family group asked for comp tickets.
More asked than I could possibly come up with but the dilemma was solved when all the tickets to all the performances were
sold out leaving none available for comp tickets. So no one was upset with me not getting them tickets.

Student directed plays were performed in the old College Hall in the same room where we also had our church services.
I attended some of these fine shows.

Two girls in my branch were in the acting course at the University.
One was in my family group.
One day she came to me and asked if I’d help with a course assigned play she was directing.
Would I play the part of the main fireman in George Kaufman’s Comedy of the absurd “The Still Alarm”.
Sure, I’d help her.

We rehearsed and got costumes and showed up in a theater room the class used on the main campus in the Fine Arts Building
for dress rehearsal.

The play consists of 5 characters: Ed and Bob, hotel guests, a bellboy, and two fireman.
The plot is that the two guests are talking when they are informed that they will have to go to another hotel as the one they are in is on fire.
They talk about the bother this would be but don’t seem to be in any rush to pack their belongings and leave.
The temperature rises as the fire intensifies.
Presently two firemen come in and ask if it is alright for them to check on the fire from the room’s window.
That is perfectly fine with Ed and Bob.
Wanting to be polite, one of the men offer the firemen a cigar, which they accept. The one fireman goes to the window and puts
the cigar into the rising flames and lights it.
They all continue on in polite conversation when the other fireman pulls a violin out of his case and asks if it is agreeable for him to play
a number on it. (Our violin player was a girl but in her fire suit no one could tell she wasn’t a man.)
It is agreeable and the fireman proceeds to play “Keep the Home Fires Burning” while the two men and the other fireman sit and politely listen.
We concluded with the three man audience wiping their brows and enjoying the music.

The instructor of the directing class was a Charles Metten.
He critiqued the performance.
His biggest concern was that of us using the cigar even though we had only mimed it’s use.
That wasn’t in compliance with church standards of not smoking even if we only gave the appearance of it.
It would have to be something different.
We actors left that problem with the director.

When the performance day arrived, we showed up and just before we went on, the girl director told us of her plan to demonstrate the hot temperature.
The firemen would be offered chocolates in a bowl. The chocolates would be melted, just a liquid.
We had no time to rehearse.
We were on.

The play progressed fine.
When the chocolates were offered to the fireman, I was the first and dipped my finger into the liquid and pulled it out dripping chocolate behind.
I had an odd look on my face of surprise as I did this, or so it appeared to the audience.
But in reality I was trying desperatly not to burst into laughter.
I licked my finger off and thanked for the chocolate.
The audience erupted into laughter.
Then we sat back to listen to the violin.

We were so happy that we’d got through that part that I didn’t say something like, “Ah, Keep the Home Fires Burning”, my favorite song.” Or something like that
to let the audience know how that particular song fit the play even though we did.
When the play was first written, it would not have been necessary as eveyone was familiar with it.
The instructor graded our director down on that point
but up on the creative use of the chocolate which was not only the hit of the show but of all the shows that day.

The point of this story is to say that when one keeps a play or film or any performance clean, in this case in adherence to church standards,  the said entertainment can be a greater success than if those standards weren’t upheld.

Governor John Kasich Visits Utah’ Dixie

19 Mar 2016 | : blog

3/19/2016
St. George, Utah

Today being Saturday, I had great plans for all the work around the house and at the farm that I’d get done.
But stopped all that early to drive into St. George to the Dixie Center to listen to US Presidential canditate John Kasich.
(John Richard Kasich,current governor of Ohio, first elected in 2010 and re-elected in 2014.
On July 21, 2015, he announced his candidacy for the 2016 Republican nomination for President of the United States.
John Richard Kasich (/ˈkeɪsᵻk/ kay-sick; born May 13, 1952) Kasich was born in McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, an industrial town near Pittsburgh.
He and wife have twin daughters age 16.
Kasich served nine terms as a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Ohio’s 12th congressional district from 1983 to 2001. His tenure in the House included 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee and six years as chairman of the House Budget Committee. He was a key figure in the passage of both welfare reform and the Balanced Budget Act of 1997.
He was a commentator on Fox News Channel, hosting Heartland with John Kasich from 2001 to 2007.
He also worked as an investment banker, a managing director of Lehman Brothers’ Columbus, Ohio, office.
In the 2010 Ohio gubernatorial election, Kasich defeated Democratic incumbent Ted Strickland. He was re-elected in 2014, defeating Democrat Ed FitzGerald by 30 percentage points.)
I arrived at 4:15 but wasn’t late as Govenor Kasich hadn’t yet arrived.
I conversed with a friend and a man standing by him about local government waste and who has any say about what happens.
About 4:30 the program began with St. George Mayor Jon Pike, then State Representative Lowry Snow and State Senator Stephen Urghart, and Former State Govenor Mike Leavitt all in turn introducing Governor Kasich and telling why they support him.
Leavitt spoke the longest telling of things that Kasich did while in Washington DC. And saying that Kasich has the Temperament, Experience and Savvy to be a good president.
He also told of convention balloting history of the first ballot and beyond and results.
Leavitt ended with saying,”Vote for the candidate you think will make the best president of the United States.”
Finally in came John Kasich to an uproarious applause.
“How beautiful it is here,” he said, “It’s amazing!” “There is not a more beautiful state.”
After some comments about Mike Leavitt, “Look where he’s gone”, he started tell about himself.
He first mentioned going to Washington DC at age 30 and staying for 18 years.
Then about work on the Federal Budget and the high cost of tools, etc. purchased by the government like, “…this wrench cost $20,000″, forcing the several branches of the military to work together, and other thing which made enemies for him.
He told of his home town of McKees Rocks and about his father and mother, of the conservative, common sense people of the town and area, good people who play by the rules, about unemployment and how it effected families he knew.
“It’s hard to realize one’s purpose without work.”
He spoke to some girls seated near the front on one side of the platform (a sort of theater in the round) about the specialness of each person.
He even hugged one of the girls and a second time so her mother could snap a photo of it on her phone .
“We were made for a purpose …to heal the world.”
We can all make small changes for the good like taking a widow out to something like a meal to make her life less drab.
“Those things will be noted.”

Then on to issues.
The people should have the say on things.
-Twice he pointed out the LDS Church welfare system of people helping people.
“It’s a sin to not help someone in need but it is also a sin to help him whenhe can help himself.”
-the Education System should be controlled by the state and local school board.
-the people write the rules
-training for jobs that exist should be given
-job training
-Infrastructure monies should stay in the states and no by way of Washington

-”The Spirit of the country rests in us.”
How?
“By taking the gifts the good Lord gave us and making a better world one person at a time.”

People say thing are horrible now but should compare now to the great depression or to WWII.
“Sure we have our problems, we can solve them.”
How?
“By getting rid of goofy politics.”

There are 3 Essentials to good government
1- federal regulations made by Congress not by bureaucrats and helping small business cut regulations that hinder business.
2- tax reform especially business taxes
3- “Don’t spend more than you take in.” (spoke of debt and interest on debt)
He gave the US 4 years of balanced budget with a projected surplus.

Ideas on other issues:
-fix and protect the borders
-have illegals who have not committed crimes pay a fine and taxes and no citizenship but don’t kick them out
-make Social Security secure
-assure Veterans medical help
-”We are Americans before we are anything else”… “we must be united”.

“I will not take the low road to the Presidency.”

-don’t leave anyone behind, ie. mentally ill, substance addiction persons
( an example was a young man who spoke to him in Salt Lake City yesterday who is recovering and thinks he’ll make it, Kasich phoned the young
man’s mother, Mary, a personal friend of his, to tell her about it.)

He’s held about 200 town hall meetings across the country so far.

Then he opened the meeting up to Questions.

The first question was about adherence to the Constitution.
In the reply, Gov. Kasich said, “Government should be the last resort not the first.”
Again he mentioned Welfare Square in Salt lake City. There is a proper order family, church, government.
“People helping people” “I’ve talked about it all over the country,” he said referring to the way the LDS church
handles welfare.

Next Question was about BLM and other land issues.
“I need to learn more about it.” The States need more control-states must gain the power and control.
“It’s out of balance.”
“We have to convince government workers that they work for us.”
Then he told a story of he and his twin daughters in Florida 5 years ago.
“Daddy, what’s that box over there?” They were referring to a phone booth and couldn’t believe how people used to make calls.
“Everything changes”.
When government increases so does the debt. The solutions are to be found in innovation.
“Innovation is the order of the day.”

Next a suggestion for Vice President Mike Leavitt
Next a lady thanked him for coming to St. George and said, ‘Don’t leave the race as you are an asset.”
Governor Kasich said we must ask a few questions: Who is electable? Who can be the best president?
“These debates are not a good way to chose a president.”
He mentioned his time at Fox News and not doing all the things the media wants done.

Next a 13 year old girl asked, “What is the first thing you’d do as president?”
He invited her onto the stage with him.
“Get people to get along with each other and work together.”
Then he had her help him with the 3 most important tings in his mind.
1-Jobs
2-Jobs
3-Jobs

Next was asking about health care, immigration, and other topics.
-Obamacare “doesn’t work”
-he’d talked about immigration before
-In Maine he asked a man if he’d lived there his whole life to which the man replied, “Not yet.”
and to a woman about the governor of the state. She was upset about losing her medical insurance
He doesn’t want anyone to suffer and suggested changes because politicians don’t know anything about medical issues.
In Ohio, he used the free market system to fix medical over charging, etc.

Next a guy mentioned a family member in Afghanistan and questioned about foreign policy.

“Isis has to be destroyed!” The Islamic Brotherhood also.
There are Arab states on our side for example Egypt, Jordan, the gulf States, European friends.
Working together with them we can destroy Isis. “We go in and destroy and come home.”
He suggested arming the Ukrainians so they can defend themselves from Russia.
“China doesn’t own the South China Sea.”
“Stand by Israel.”
Take out hackers.
Mexico: “full of corruption”.
“Canada has good hockey players.”
“Only commit troops when our interests are at peril.”
“Don’t get involved in Civil Wars.”
“Afghanistan: “teach them and leave.”
North Korea: give missile defense to South Korea and Japan
Pakistan: is complicated and serious-
“‘regime change’ may be the answer.”
Turkey: “must get it stable.”
Iran: “suspend the nuclear agreement”.
Brazil: “is a mess”
Cuba: “must have human rights first.”

Next question was about the National debt.
“We had a surplus when I left Washington but the Republicans blew it.”
*”Democrats love to spend. Republicans do too, they just feel guilty about it.”

Next question was “What is morality’s and Spirituality’s effect on government?’
A person from the crowd yelled, “Not Enough!”
His remark got a great laugh from those assembled.

Governor Kasich told of a songs lyrics, “I was just a slob on the bus on my way home.”
Everyone makes errors and can only try to do better the next day.
But there is a great need for moral behavior and “personal responsibility’ in government.
He said he know religion matters but “I don’t want to cheapen religion to get elected.”

Then he said goodbye but stayed a while in the roped off stage area to talk to individuals and shake hands.
He have way shook mine as his whole attention was on the guy next to me who was wearing a Ohio State shirt.

I spoke to a man as I left who said he felt that Governor Kasich is a sincere good man but not conservative enough for him,
I had to agree somewhat.

In other presidential elections I’ve gotten to meet other Presidential candidates in St. George.
One was a professor from New Hampshire running on the American Party ticket.
He was a very intelligent man.
I meet Bo Gritz when he ran on the American-Independent ticket and collected voting totals of his campaign.
That is another interesting story.
Then Alan Keyes was here in St. George when he ran on the Republican ticket.

Of John Kasich, who is like the current president younger than me, he is a good man.
I found the other three I mentioned more accessible. No body guards and each of them had time to stop and talk to
little people one on one for an extended length of time. No they didn’t get elected but should have been.

The President is important. But so is Congress.
Which ever one of the Republicans gets elected, that person should take some if not all of his rivals and fill his cabinet with them.
It might not be good for his agenda, but as Abraham Lincoln knew, it would be good for the country.

I’m glad I got a phone call on Thursday telling me about this event because I’d have missed a great opportunity to be a part of our
nation’s future.

Jay Beacham

for more info about him go to :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Kasich

I remembered wrong on the party of two of the former candidates according to Wikipedia.
It states that Bo Gritz was American Party and Alan Keyes was America’s Independent Party.
But what does it matter?
Abraham Lincoln served in the Illinois legislature as a Whig Party
member and also in Congress in DC as a Whig.
He stumped for other Whig Party candidates for various offices.
He even ran for US Senate against Stephen Douglas as a Whig.
But when he and others felt that “the Whigs had strayed from principle” he was involved in the founding of the
Republican Party.
When he ran for re-election for President in 1864, he ran on the National Union Party ticket.
Lincoln was more about principle and less about party affiliation.
So were Gritz and Keyes.
So  should we be.

 

 

My Song Story

18 Mar 2016 | : blog

My Song Story

Brendon Burchard, the Experts Academy guy says that a person’s story is very important in creating trust.

Okay, so then here is my singing story.

I was born in Santa Clara, Utah in 1950.
My parents both sang.
My father would soothe the cows temperament so that he could milk them.
(the cows took exception to my singing attempts while milking.)
My mother sang to entertain herself while working.
I Listened and learned.
We had an RCA Victrola in the living room with 78 and 45 rpm records and a radio.
I used it a lot and listened to the radio too.
The town I lived in had elementary school 1 through 6 grades.
With three teachers, 1 & 2, 3 & 4, and 5&6.
The 5th and 6th teacher was a man and the principle.
When I got to those grades it was taught by Arlo Hafen.
He said what one lacked in ability, one could compensate for with volume and gusto.
Everyone seemed to be musical.
His wife Ramona was my piano teacher.
We learned songs and sang for every occasion.
Church was one ward of the LDS faith.
We sang in Primary, Sunday School, Sacrament meeting, and other meetings.
Wednesday night was Mutual Improvement and the opening exercises always included song and song instruction and
plays with song were presented.
Every class group sang at Christmas, Easter, and on other occasions.
As a teenager, I even did a solo one evening of “Brother Can You Spare a Dime.”

I was a boy soprano.
And very good I think because people would turn around in church to listen to me and then tell me I was.
Once in a boys chorus, one of Arlo’s nephews (from a very musical family) said I was the best in the group.
He had a brother who had made a record with a group he was in.
And another brother with Downs Syndrome
He is the reason I don’t lead or direct music.
At 12, I was asked to direct the song in a meeting. Afterwards, this brother
informed me that I couldn’t lead. He was right. I couldn’t stay on the beat.
This boy was no dunce when it came to music.
Later in his life he attended the state school for the mentally challenged. While there he started a band.
He taught the other students to play the instruments and he lead them in some wonderful performances.

When I was 12 or 13, I was involved in a stake (a church term for a group of several wards-local units).
We were to perform in the St. George Pioneer Tabernacle at a stake conference.
(The Tabernacle had hosted the first Catholic Mass in St. George sung by the LDS ward choir under the direction of John Menzies MacFarlane, author of Far, Far Away On Judea’s Plains.)
Boys and girls from all the wards in the stake participated.
The director was a lady from the Gunlock Ward.
We had sung the song we were to perform through once and the director said someone sounded off.
We would sing it through again and she would listen and determine who was off.
We sang it again.
When done, all the boys around me pointed to me and said, “It’s Him! He’s off!”
The director said, “No, Jay was right on just two octaves below everybody else.”

And I had become a bass forever more.

“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”

18 Mar 2016 | : blog

“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”

Since this is a public domain song, I sang it how I know it on December 10th, 2011

“Take Me Out to the Ball Game”
http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/c5b049548

a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of baseball,
although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song.
The song (chorus only) is traditionally sung during the seventh-inning stretch of a baseball game.
Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks,
the words “home team” are replaced with the team name,
as is the case with the Houston Astros, San Francisco Giants,
Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox,
Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies, Toronto Blue Jays, Miami Marlins,
Colorado Rockies, Detroit Tigers and several other Major League Baseball teams.-Wikipedia

When I was a boy I had desires to be a baseball pitcher.
It didn’t happen so I wrote a poem about it.
You can find it in my poetry collection:
http://amzn.to/1UHqqDo

Well since then I’ve learned about a Jay Beacham, a pro baseball pitcher.
A picture of him at work in his college days is here:
http://www.crc.edu/sports/Beacham%20-%20All%20Region%20Pitcher%202011.pdf

A Jay Beacham actually did become a baseball pitcher
But as my poems says:
“Though balls fly from mitt to sky
They do not at all on me rely.”

The trees are alive! Yikes!

15 Mar 2016 | : blog

Sixteen years ago the road in front of my house was widened.  In the process four of my mulberry trees were torn out.

The contractors were related to me and kindly moved the torn out trees to a vacant lot to the west of my house.
I was able to then cut them up for firewood.
It took me a while with chainsaw, axe, and wedges over several weeks to get the task completed.
As I neared the end, one stump kept dulling my chain saw blade in just a minute or two.
Finally I gave that up and took the wedges and sledge hammer and split the log.
In so doing the culprit for dulling the chain was revealed. It was a metal rat tail file.
The file was still in good shape except for the spot where it and the saw chain had met.
A distant cousin of mine had grown up in the house where I live, his parents being the people who built the house.
I told him about my experience and he said, “I always wondered what happened to that file.”
Left in the crouch of the tree, it had in the ensuing years become completely encased by the tree with no outward sign that anything was inside.
This evening I told that story to C. Asay,  a retired veterinarian doctor.
He told of a horse shoe he once placed in a tree and over the years watched as “the tree ate it”.
“That may be a problem for someone like the file someday.” he said.
My goodness, the trees are alive. Yikes!
There may then be a lot of truth to the song that says “The hills are alive” if the trees do in fact slowly eat things.
I’ve seen photos of a bicycle grown over and high up in a tree and other things being encased by trees.
But the one I find most amusing is the one just west of the current county library in St. George, Utah on 100 South street.
Several years ago I saw and photographed a sycamore tree firmly holding a “No Parking” sign as if the tree was the natural frame for the sign.

15310035
I thought that was so true, one had better not park here to long or else the tree would get a hold on them.

Two weeks ago I was taking photos of the fine old houses on that tree lined street, one of the loveliest streets in town.
I noticed the sycamore tree too. But where was the sign? So I took a photo or two.

Upon examining the photos, it looks to me as though I can still see the letters of the sign in the smooth outside bark of the tree.

march 2016 013
That tree really meant it when it said “No Parking” for it ate the sign sure as shooting.

What do you think?

Comments-Real or Not?

14 Mar 2016 | : blog

3/13/2016

I’ve been reviewing my over 10K comment files at this website the last two or three weeks.
I’m down to around 6K left to look at.

Last week I actually got two real comments from a man I know who lives in South East Asia.

One man suggested I post about all of my social media sites.
Seemed like a real comment but all those things are linked to on my home page in the link column so why make a post about them?

One comment tonight, asked if the comments sounded like they came from brain dead people.

Most are trash generated by machines or software that has made the sellers of it rich
at the expense of lost money, sales, and hopes of the now poor website owners who wanted to somehow automate their advertising.

One comment asked if I get hacked alot. One asked if palgerism is a problem.

These sound fairly real at first clance but after seeing the same message word for word in other comments on other pages,
you can soon see that they are machine generated too.

Some start out saying words like “your blog is fastidious”.
“Hi, its fastidious piece of writing on the topic of media print, we all understand media is a great source of data.
Also visit my webpage :: mopile applications”
No one talks like that. Must be a computer generated translation.

Some asked how I built the site.
It says right on it thtat it is built on WordPress.
A real person would have seen that.

There are a great many drug, prescription medicine, supplement ads in the comments. All at cheaper prices than be had elsewhere.
Which is true. I used to have an online prescription site.
But to put these in the comments on an unrelated sit by a machine is counter productive.
They sell Viagra or some other drug. some in a single line comment others in longs lists.
Why would I ever go to them or give them a back links?

Back links may be important but a thousand such links from sites no one has or will ever hear about,
aren’t worth as much as one good back link from a major company, internet provider such as Google,
or major online presence like a “dot gov”.
Two weeks ago I spent 2 & 1/2 hours one evening deleting over 3500 prescription ads all in Greek.
I don’t read or speak Greek and even find the alphabet impossible to read.
Why would a back link company put such ads on my site?
The buyer was cheated.
I’ve never even had a site hit from Greece.
A waste of my time and the advertisers money.

Here are more examples of the kind of spam I’ve received.

“No matter if some one searches for his vital
thing, therefore he/she wants to be available that in detail,
therefore that thing is maintained over here. شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض

Not medicine here but a craigslist from where ever as the location is different in different comments.

Or this comment start:
“Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering….”

example:
“Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had
to ask. Does building a well-established blog
like yours take a large amount of work? I’m brand new
to running a blog however I do write in my diary
every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
Thankyou!”

No one talks likes that.

Then they ask advise about blogging, hackers, html code, or how to earn money from blogging.
Every comment is the same. the chances of multiple real people ever saying this same thing are astronomical.

Comments suggesting link exchanges are similar.

Here is a often used one:
“My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all
of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for.
Would you offer guest writers to write content for you?
I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write with regards to here.
Again, awesome web site!”

All of these automated comments are the same and placed on the Policy page, rate schedule or some other odd page on my site
that no real person would read and comment on.

Or they are from the same author such as “Mark” “Stefan” “Sandra” etc.
or from the same company name such as back links, etc.

Some have nothing to do with anything:
“My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he’s trying none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am
concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.

Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

Have a look at my web blog :: mopile applications”

Or:
“If you would like to improve your experience just keep visiting this web page and be updated with the hottest information posted
here.

Here is my blog post – mopile applications”(and some person’s name)

Or:
“WOW just what I was searching for. Came here by searching for Home” on the policy page.

Here is one that hit my comment review box in December 2015, I’m just now deleted this backlink trash.
“Hey there. Im from Anonymous. I am a doxxor. I have doxxed the bloodlines of a group of families. I have traced them to 4400 BC
and have detailed all of their plans, lineage, blood type, and many many other things.
No one has ever lived long enough to do this before. No one has ever released this much info, this detailed info.
Please look at htp:/saianarchy.com to see a sneak preview. Release on friday december 18…dont miss it! It will be up as long as I’m alive.”
( I’ve changed the link so as to save you from such garbage)
The next comment from someone else was a word perfect copy of it.

Or how about this:
“Firstly, you might have two techniques for finding employment: be approached by an employer, or approach them via either networking or direct application against work advert.
The other cool feature of Google+ is Google Hangouts which can be essentially a face-to-face video communication feature allowing
friends to video conference. The more +1s a website or article gets, the
bigger it will likely be ranked on Google.”
Which has nothing to do with anything.

Some even go into long articles that make no sense what soever then have the links at the end.
The back link company was most likely trying to fool the spam filters on different site by jumbling the words up.
Many seem to be real comments about my site but when i look at the page they were posted on, it become apparent that a person
didn’t make it because the comment has nothing to do with that particular page. Comments like, “just the information I was looking for.”
Oh really?

Example:
“Great blog here! Also your website loads up very fast!
What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link on your host?

I desire my site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

Also visit my site villa prices in las vegas,(name)” (the name is linked to the person’s site)

Looks okay at first glance but when hundreds of others show up saying exactly the same thing excepting
for the the link name because it is someone else’s machine generated lead-back link.

Then there are the Seo ads.
“You could be getting more hits…”
“May I make some suggestions…”
etc.

Well, it’s late and I’m getting tired.
I’ve put 376 into the spam folder to delete this session. Only 300 pages more to go though, 5,827 more comments to review.
If I find ten in all that are real comments by real people I will be surprised.

Oh, spam machines stop wasting your clients money sending this trash to me.

Until next time.

Jay
