I used to loved a little coffee with my spiced rum back when I wasn't
allergic to alcohol. :)
Hilarious.  I was reading this post a little bit ago and I glanced up and
saw the google ad for "Pirate Boots."  Not pirate paraphenalia mind you, not
boots in general, just pirate boots.  Now that's specialization.
Off topic on an off topic thread:  Is anybody else a little bit bothered by
the fact that Google is reading their mail?  I don't really know the
mechanics of what is happening but sometimes it makes me wonder.  Case in
point. Recently I moved and traded e-mails with my mortgage broker as we
hammered out the details.  I never once registered with an online broker or
did any of the normal stuff that might get one on e-mailing lists for
mortgages but now I receive regular spam from mortgage companies and
outright fraud attempts that reference my "recent loan application."  All
this from receiving a couple of e-mails with the word "mortgage" in the
subject line.
The question that I have is are they monitoring content as well as subject?
Could they open and read attachments such as a scan of a mortgage app?

I've had that happen to me long before I had Gmail. I would get 
"senders" who were combinations of names in my address book..Some of 
the people I have in my book have very unusual names, btw.
I seem to remember that there is someway for the spammers to "read" 
address books and phis the names from them... Scary, eh?
A+
