Pagan - that's funny! You did not get this from Leolist by any chance? I saw the same thing posted there a few weeks ago ... of course it could have gone around a bit since then.

I had to laugh, after I posted it on the bed & breakfast board. I received lots of humourous replies. One person remarke. "There's someone spying on us".

This was all so true of our B&B board, right down to the "spelling and grammar police" UNBELIEVABLE! It just goes to show, I guess, that we on the B&B board, are QUITE NORMAL! heehee!
