It is nice to find out that someone apparently have noticed that I have started to blog again, though I much prefer regular readers and comments from those instead of all those fake comments that once in a while seem to flood in.
Today I had 37 comments, all pretty much using the same words, and all completely irrelevant to the blog post where the comment was posted.

Truth be told, I didn't read all those 37 comments today, I kind of stopped after reading the comment that was posted on my post about building a coffin for my dad.
That comment read something like: I built something similar with help from ...
Hmmm, I bet you did!
Stay safe for New Years Eve, don't drink and drive, use safety glasses and DONT support the scam sites
