Gee, say the word 'recipe' agin and you might that YOU are the
proud admin of the Scotch Irish list <grin>. That's mean
you find in your inbox:
200 "Cannot deliver email" messages
50 "GET ME OFF THIS LIST!" messages
50 "Finally, a NICE topic!" messages
15 successful unsub messages
5 "Why is xxx sending me deaththreats?" messages
4 emails I can't understand. (Get the internet out of the Alzhiemer units!)
25 recipes for 'tomato sandwich' and 4 for possum
75 mass unsubs from British cousins offended by our bad spelling and hideous cuisine (it's the American schools, guys!)
40 emails blaming me for everything.
1 sub message
1 email trying to find a ancestor .... in Scotland.
1 mass-emailed funeral announcement for the IRA spy on the list
who died from boredom like the last one.
1 email from rootsweb 'help desk' claiming someone claims I insulted him/her.
So I say we all join the Unionist list and post our
favorite Scotch Irish recipes!!
