A Post For Outer Mongolian Mark!

Well today I got something wonderful in the mail. A review copy of a new book. Now that in itself is hardly a surprising occurrence. Jan who fields most of the deliveries is on first name terms with all of the drivers from Fed-Ex, UPS, Purolater, Canada Post, etc.

But today we scored a great find, when I first read the press release I knew I had to have it, if only to make Outer Mongolian Mark green with envy, 'The Book Of Spam'! Yes folks some one has written a book all about that delectable canned meat product. Better yet, no expense has been spared in this books production, on heavy weigh glossy paper, each page (200) contains pictures and interesting facts about Spam.

Needless to say, all other reviews are on hold while I 'devour' this one. With a bit of luck the review will be up tomorrow.

This could be as good as "The Book of the Movie" in Monty Python's -The Holy Grail.

I can hhardly wait for the review. I may buy a few hundred copies of this book and sell them here on Saipan where darned near everyone eats the stuff. Where else will you find many cars driving around with "I Love Spam" bumper stickers?

Did you get my email a while back, Simon?

You are a lucky dog. The only can of SPAM in Mongolia is just barely hanging in there. I managed to put a dent in the side during our travels and the missus has seized on the opportunity to push for an early demise. I'm hoping to hold out until Christmas. I'm going to tie a bow around it and put it on top of the tv stand which is doubling for our Christmas Tree. Mongolia Mark

I have to fry spam to eat it.
I hate spam on my e-mail, It just has a bad after taste.
