I've been receiving an incredible amount of spam on the blog lately. So much that I've had to start moderating the comments. The Spammers, whether they are real people or robots, have managed to pass the word verification system and leave their garbage on my blog. It's quite annoying. So now, if you'd like to leave a comment, I'll have to approve the comment before it shows up on my blog (Sorry). There shouldn't be much of a delay as I get push notifications on my phone and check my email compulsively. Nonetheless, I apologize for delaying your instant gratification experience that is The Interweb.
Spam (The "meat") does bring back some good memories. Growing up I was a Boy Scout I got my fill of Spam. "Spambled Eggs" for breakfast was a favorite of mine on backpacking and camping trips. Good memories aside; I can't say as though I've touched the stuff in the last 10 years. For your entertainment, I give you the above photo of myself, my father and my older brother taken around '86 or '87 while growing up in Pittsburgh. Can those shorts get any shorter? As much as people like to make fun of scouting, I wouldn't trade the experiences or knowledge I gained in the scouts for anything. To this day, "Eagle Scout" remains on my resume and has actually helped me get to where I am now.
