Travels with Marmite

Gee, I can almost hear my ol' gran saying it: They can put a man on the moon, but they still can't stop spam (except that granny [RIP] never used a computer). BCS: Spam still failing to be canned

"Some 95 per cent of all email messages currently being received is spam, new figures have revealed.

Statistics from the latest Spamometer survey by technology firm Ipswitch have shown that this is the highest level since the study began."

It must work, spamming; otherwise they wouldn't do it. (Here's a little evidence of that.) Spam is like the Nigerian scam, it never dies--though I had formed the mistaken impression it was dwindling. As long as there is an Internet there will be spam . . . and the Nigerian scam. At least Scan-o-rama is still having fun. They not only receive, but reply to, interesting scam/spam letters. Note: This time they're toying with some guy in Ivory Coast. Sir Marmite Luny-Binns receives a fabulous offer (Nigerian scam) from a Dannis Attiba.

We use a good security system(telus) and have had no problems with spam.As for marmite? In BC we use it to "snap" quebecoise immigrants.The shock of ingesting a whole slice of toast slathered in vegetable and yeast by-products is guaranteed to shred years of pur-laine propaganda.

I've got Marmite(which is an 'Orphan Brand') in my pantry.
I wouldn't eat it on crackers or bread, unless I was desperate, but I do use it in soups and sauces.
