changed username to Pamela rich-c: your mother is still having a hard time, Ron? Dr.D.: Ah. Ron: yes Guy B.: Looks like everyone's back. Daniel Bienvenu: I need to filter to receive Pamela: that was almost too easy Ron: Think the trip to Edmonton may have been a little too much Daniel Bienvenu: the adamcon e-mail Dr.D.: Allow anything from firstname.lastname@example.org to pass through. Dr.D.: You won't get spam, the list traps mail from all non-members. Pamela: if it's the same thing that's going around Ron then she's fortunate that she can keep anything down Dr.D.: The only way spam would get through is if a subscriber posted it. Ron: true Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: it's not my filter... it's the Yahoo antispam filter ... it's a kind of "collective" antispam filter Pamela: I didn't want to look at anything resembling food for 72 hours after I first got it rich-c: make sure it will pass an attachment from me, Daniel Ron: that's it Pamela: it took me about two weeks to be able to stomach anything with fat in it Ron: you feel like you're going to die, and wish you could Pamela: you'd have to die to feel better Judy: did you have the flu, Pam? Pamela: except ice cream - I wanted things that were really cold Pamela: back at the end of November Judy Ron: I always something's wrong when I don't feel like going near the fridge Daniel Bienvenu: Rich: GO!

Ron: will check that out Pamela Pamela: I got my flu shot on Friday and got sick on the Monday night. I don't think it had time to take effect rich-c: my first dump was my fault, but the second was the spam filter Daniel Bienvenu: Dr.D: send me antoher test! rich-c: well, the flu shots don't cover all the varieties of flu going around Ron: obviously not. We both had one in Nov Pamela: Ron you can get boxes of six of those in the regular freezer section in orange or raspberry, or in the club pack freezer section in boxes of twelve in raspberry, orange and mango Ron: good Pamela, will check them out Daniel Bienvenu: talking about flu... that's funny because last year it was the "Northwalk" virus (or something like that)... FLU Daniel Bienvenu: at the same period Daniel Bienvenu: in january Pamela: since I'm such an ice cream nut, I bought them in the summer as a substitute with less fat and we both loved them rich-c: yes, the strains or varieties of flu change every year rich-c: this year the doctors guessed wrong on which would be mopst prevelant Judy: was Ryan's birthday today, he is 3 Pamela: we want Mama to get better Ron Ron: me too Guy B.: And he's doing fine Judy?
