Cyprus Life – in pictures

My new life in Cyprus in images and words. I'm a British 50 something female, originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) and came to live in Limassol, Cyprus in March 2004. This is my photo blog about my new life as an expat on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Plus other things which catch my attention every once in a while…. Enjoy!

From my Spam Filter today:


Some Spam I can live with but some just really get up my nose….

Stop the SPAM Spread Now!

These are from my Akismet spam filters provided by my blog today:

“I like the helpful information you provide in your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and check once more here regularly. I’m fairly sure I’ll learn plenty of new stuff proper here! Good luck for the following!”

I get that one on  a regular basis. The great giveaway though is that they never “bookmark your blog”. Duh😦

“My brother recommended I may like this web site. He was once totally right. This publish actually made my day. You can not consider simply how a lot time I had spent for this information! Thank you!”

This one above always makes me wonder just how many readers of my blog there are in the world that think it’s so fantastic and informative they have to pass it on to their “brother” –  especially as the comment almost always comes up against the same post or thread about animal charities in Cyprus. That’s really not so difficult to find if you put your mind to it but for some reason they always seem to have spent a long time looking for it.

“If you want to get social bookmarking backlinks that will help skyrocket your website search engine ranking straight to the top, check out this site.”

And if I want social backlinks, I’m perfectly capable of sourcing them myself. I really don’t need any SEO backlinks site selling them to me especially at these dodgy prices below. Amazing how they can just knock up to $50 off just like that:

1 url x 500 Unique Social Bookmarking USD  $39.99  $9.99 (2 cent per success submission)
1 url x 1000 Unique Social Bookmarking USD $79.99 $19.99 (2 cent per success submission)

So for today’s titivation please say thank you to: and

Feel free to send your SPAM to them, let’s see how they like it biting them back in the bum!😀

  1. Really annoying isn’t it!

    • Sometimes they make me laugh about how stupid they are to think I will fall for them, other times it really gets up my nose as to how blatant they can be as nothing links to what they’re offering but mostly – they just piss me off!
