Scam Emails

I must be learning something, as I am starting to recognise scam emails fairly readily.  The latest one arrived this morning.

This particular one slipped up by leaving the long list of recipients visible to all of us.  It appears that a group of people want to book a large number of rooms for a large number of days, and that they will simultaneously be in the Cotswolds and also in New Zealand, Scotland, the Hebrides and Ireland.

Not terribly convincing.

They tend to include some content to impress the recipient, imply a degree of urgency in replying, and use CAPITALS inappropriately.

I don't think I will be replying on this occasion.  I'll go back to working on some updated images for the web site....

Tea by the Fire

What could be better than tea in the drawing room, in front of a roaring fire, after a lovely dog walk on Minchinhampton Common?  Bliss...

Rodborough Common

It was a lovely day for a walk today.  Rodborough Common is one of my favourite places to walk as you can't get lost (or you would have to try very hard) and there is a large expanse of unspoilt countryside with panoramic views of picturesque hills and villages.  At other times of year there are lots of wildflowers and butterflies to look for, but just now, when the leaves are turning beautiful shades of yellow and orange, on a sunny day - what could be better?
