Now that ticks me off

Spam is the bane of email existence and I am pretty good at just ignoring it. But the latest spam is particularly disgusting. Someone is using the Animal Protection Society logo and info to get you to donate - to their pockets and NOT the ASPCA.

It bothers me because someone very naive soul may actually attempt to make a donation to a worthy cause. Mind you, you do have to be naive, the link is to some site that doesn't contain aspca or any near equivalent in the link.

Don't be naive about links and do donate to worthy causes.

Visiting Rome

Visiting Rome really was amazing. So much history everywhere.

I would not want to drive around the city. The traffic is insane. Lot's of vehicles, moving quite fast and the drivers there must know the width of their vehicle to a couple of millemetres. Fortunately, you can walk or take public transport to all the important sites.

We also did one of the all-day on and off buses. Those are good for getting a feel for a place and not walking your feet off.
