Some windows around town

Ludwigs Monday Windows

I just happened to find a wonderful house with a shade. No I’m not addicted….really I’m not 😂

These are at a solicitors office. I like the early 20th Century building and windows but the colours aren’t to my taste

The next group are from the Crown Hotel on the banks of the Clarence River, Grafton

I love the lettering

This is an interesting design. I wonder if the three clear glass panels in the middle should be that creamy coloured glass?

This Weeks Spam – 1 May

Fandangos Spam Comment of the Week – Week 17 2023

Well my spam fans a bit of a mixed bag plus the return of a few favourites. Maybe get a cup of tea for the morning readers and something stronger to fortify those reading in the evening.

  • Let’s start with EvansWarutere from who has returned with a comment on An op-shop find with the simple message of – “Owesome” Perhaps I have been harsh and he is really trying but as a budding journalist, it’s a worry for the state of writing in this world. Also this was the exact comment from last time.
  • Another repeat commenter is Dilranga Perera from who sent a great comment on my post Still life observations with the longest post address EVER “”
    I would like to get interact with him/her with a bit of what I seem to think is a site devoted to Bollywood but have no idea how to read the script and there isn’t a translate button.
  • A new commenter is Carma Parenteau from Speed%20SEO%20Net who commented on my post handle_orange_margaret olley_house_tweed art gallery_murwillumbah_july 2014 Yes a comment on a photo “Hi there
    If you ever need Negative SEO or a de-rank strategy, you can hire us”
    What is all that about? Well for between $79 – $500 they will – “Do you have competitors that don`t play fair in terms of SEO? Then why should you? Hire us and we`ll do a negative SEO campaign and destroy your competition by building the worse possible backlinks towards their sites and keywords.”
    Ahh look internet arseholes
  • This is the longest comment from Miriam Wertheim from who commented on my About page

  • Still with me after that exhaustive analysis so far. Now we have abel acosta who is not from anywhere really, as the address link was, who commented on This Weeks Spam – 10 April with just a link to the home page
    Well I feel like I have been acosta’d
  • This is where it gets interesting. Last week I wasn’t sure where an AI or person wrote a comment as it seemed a bit sus to me.
    Well Jason Lawrence who hails from turned up again to comment on my post The third largest bird in Australia with
    “Hey there! We absolutely love reading people’s blogs and the inspiring content that creators like you publish. Your unique perspective enriches the engaging online community that we all cherish . Keep writing and inspiring your audience, because your words can make a positive impact on the world. We can’t wait to read what you’ll share next!
    Thanks – pomeranianpoppa”
    I don’t want a Pomeranian puppy to start with, cute as they are. What makes me think that’s it AI? Perhaps it’s the “unique perspective” – it’s a post with photos of Pelicans FFS!! Then there the “your words can make a positive impact on the world” again not many words but the word Pelican was repeated a few times? If they can’t wait to see what I’ll share next, they haven’t returned, not even a like to any of the last posts since.
  • Now, this is where it gets more interesting.
    A comment from Array (Is this WP speak for anonymous commenters as I have had a few with this “name” recently. Even some from people I follow and they repeat of what they said as Array. This is a comment that you think has disappeared turns up as Array on a post)
    He is from and commented on my post From behind with
    “We adore reading your blog! Your unconventional perspective and authentic voice make a difference in the world. Keep creating, because your ideas matter. Thank you for being you!
    Thanks – TheDogGod”
    OK you may be asking why it is interesting? His website address will take you to the Pomeranian puppies website just as the above does. I have not clicked on any of the cute puppy photos as you never know what’s behind a front page. Although his comment is true 😂😂

Last on the Card – April 2023

Last Photo for April 2023

Everyone who contributes their good and not so good photos has fun I hope. I enjoy seeing your photos. Thanks to those being brave enough to show everyone your last photo for the month in its naked glory.
It doesn’t have to be on the very last day of the month if you didn’t take any photos. Maybe it was earlier in the month when the last photo was taken.

So let’s see what you have for April 2023

The rules are simple:
1. Post the last photo on your SD card or last photo on your phone for the 30th April or whenever your last photo was taken.
2. No editing – who cares if it is out of focus, not framed as you would like or the subject matter didn’t cooperate.
3. You don’t have to have any explanations, just the photo will do
4. Create a Pingback to this post or link in the comments
5. Use the tags The Last Photo and #LastOnTheCard

Here’s mine. Last month an unintentional floral theme, this month, an insect leaning.
