Okay, so my number of unsolicited emails from complete strangers,
marketers, spammers, and checkoutmywebpagers hovers around 10-20
a day, and sometimes I still get email that makes me wonder WHY
they thought to email me. One to one marketing, for example, would
have difficulty explaining to me how anyone could think I would want
"fresh hand roasted chocolate seeds" (see below).

Stop the Web, I want to get off.

Subject: Fresh hand roasted chocolate seeds from Belize

Our chocolate seeds (cacao) are grown in the rain forest of Belize.
After the seeds are collected they are hand roasted in the Village of
Barranco. These are the same seeds that the Maya use as their daily
drink, which is refered to cacautal. Often they mix in sugar and milk
and hot pepper and, of course, use in baking.

We sell the whole seed -nothing has been removed (i.e. coco butter,
etc.). We normally sell these seeds for $8.00 for the pound, including
S&H. This is a special trial offer to you for just $7.00 per pound,
including shipping and handling -shipped air-mail to you anywhere.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your seeds -we will refund
your purchase price or if you wish another product, such as, nutmeg
seeds, harbano hot sauce, sesame seeds, kola nuts, cassava crisp bread,
etc., we can do that.

All our products shipped from Belize are government inspected and approved.

If you would like to order and need an invoice you can send us an email
stating the amount you wish to purschase and I will return to you an
invoice from which you can pay. Otherwise, you can mail your order with
payment to our field office:

Dear God, So far today, I've done all right. I haven't gossiped, and I
haven't lost my temper. I haven't been grumpy, nasty, or selfish. But
in a few minutes, God, I'm going to get out of bed and that is when I'm
going to need a lot of help. Amen.
