A place for everything, and everything in its place

Actually.. my “sourness” has been building up. I am “sour” because, after years of use, my main email account now receives SO MUCH spam (“Junk”) I am considering dropping it, and starting fresh — which is a pain. In fact, I am getting so sour.. I think the world is over-populated. By 16 *people*, at least…

I want to know what you think
