PayPal Scam

PayPal Scam. I wonder if they just mail every known address they can find.

Hey got this through the email!

The first thing I did was login to my Paypal account legitimately to see if there were any messages there. There weren't . Opened the attachment out of curiosity.

Email from PayPal! In your dreams

This was the form I had to fill in to get my email back!
Please do not go there. Felt quite comfortable that nothing was going to happen as I opened everything in a Linux Mint machine. My wife has also had a mystery caller purporting to be able to mend my Windoze 7  machine over the phone!

Had to write stuff. Lots of changes going on. There is a growing number of visitors to the blogs. There are always interesting nice comments - thanks for the email Steve. This makes it all worthwhile. Hopefully you will find Moses in the cemetery! Anxiety levels start to grow about preserving all this digital data. Everywhere you turn has got a different view about the longevity of the information. I may well splash out on 2 1T portable drives. Less work than cd's, probably just as reliable but considerably less hassle.

Good day with the camera today. 3 sites photographed. The Catholic Church is really nice and the inscriptions photogenic and really well sited.

The Parish church, quite frankly has lost its appeal, The nave chopped in 3, The memorials are behind a "fence" hard to photograph. Lots of info though. Photographed the outside of Raikes Parade. Very interesting especially the house opposite. Needs research - apparently I have to write to the major to obtain permission to photograph the memorial.

Manage to cycle 33 miles in 1 day, quite kd the following day. Quite frankly training is rubbish.

Had an invite from the Imperial War museum to be a researcher - highlight of week. And also the Commonwealth War Graves Commision are putting a link on their site to Lazy... too. All things considered a good week.
