Spam Town USA

Today we went to Austin, MN to visit the new SPAM Museum. From the amazing display of thousands of cans of SPAM in the lobby, to the videos of the July SPAM Fest, to the SPAM gift shop, it is truly an amazing experience. The sight of spam frying reminded me of when I used to eat the stuff, as a kid many years ago. I almost wish they made a vegetarian SPAM, and I must admit if I see little bits of SPAM being served I’ll be tempted to try one just to see if it brings back any memories.

Spam vs SPAM

E-mail spam is up 650% over this time last year. I noticed a major increase in the last month or so; it finally got to the stage where I was getting more spam than legitimate e-mail, so I’ve had to put in a really picky filtering program. I’m trying it out in silent mode for a few more days before switching it on to bounce mode. I’m wondering whether to try and persuade sara to take me to the SPAM museum and gift shop when we’re in Minnesota.
