Make sure I have some way to contact you if you are interested in sharing family history with me. Many of you leaving comments are related but leave no way for me to make contact. Thanks.

I stopped anonymous commenters but sadly that is not enough as I am now getting spam comments from phony blogger profiles.

I will not take this lying down. I have reported this spam blog profile and you can do it too if someone is posting on your blog using a fake Blogger profile.

I know you can do this no matter where they are posting from but since this was a Blogger profile I’ll go with that one.

To report the spam blogger click on their name to take you to their blogger profile page. You will see nothing there because it is a shell for sending out spam.

Copy the URL, that is the web page address that starts with http://www. and go and paste it on the Google spam reporting page and they will have a go at it. Here is the link for you.

Be vigilant. Report every time. Stand up for our right to not be used for somebody else’s personal gain. Your blog is yours and should not be used without your approval.

Due to the problem of morons posting filth on here I may have to eliminate anonymous comments. It will be wait and see for now but if I do block the comments you can email me for information or you can create a free Google account that will then allow you to post on here.

Part of my huge Santa collection includes old postcards. Some have Christmas messages on the back and I have even found the people involved on old census forms in the past.

I have done a product review on my other blog for a software program for scrap booking. There is a contest over there to win a copy of their My Memories Suite program. 
I had a lot of fun playing with it today. You can enter to win on my other site. If you want you can go to their website and purchase products or software using the coupon code below for a discount on your purchases. 
As a special for all of my readers here is a Share the Memories code that provides a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store - $20 value!) 
Just copy and paste this code when placing your order. STMMMS68194 
 Just so you know I also receive payment when this code is used so feel free to use it all you like and tell your family and friends to use it too. Here are some samples of what I created today.

Did you ever have an Auntie Mame? You know what I mean. The wild, madcap Aunt. The fun Aunt. 
I did. 
My darling Aunt Gertie. I hadn't seen her in many, many years but it seems like just last week she had me laughing my head off. 
She would make you put on wigs and act silly. She would drive like a maniac down the highway yelling at the top of her lungs "Watch out McDonalds" (taken from an old tv commercial) 
She would dress in the most....interesting ways and we always wondered what she would have on when she was coming over. 
Her sense of humour was quick and saucy. I can't even repeat here some of the stuff she said on here but I will tell those stories for years to come. 
So with a sad heart I say goodbye to my mother's sister more commonly known with love in our family as Dirty in peace Widow Brown.
