Defeating the Sploggers!!!!

This blog has been returned to its rightful author!

About a month ago I noticed spam was somehow someway making its way onto my blog. So I changed the email address I use to post my entries...but i haven't used that feature in a while and i accidentally change the address of my blog. drats! spammers took control of it about a day after it happened. it's pretty upsetting to see my blog address that i owned for two years change to an ad for german airlines.

The folks at Blogger really helped out. It was surprising to see something really done when you contact tech support! There really is someone who reads those emails you send to tech support.

Thank you Blogger for your help!

It took a little time but they returned the hijacked blog back to its rightful owner. Now all the folks who check the blog for travel updates will not need to fret because jp's address changed.

So I guess i should make a travel announcement. Well, the next trip may be a brief one. South Africa hosts the World Cup in 2010 and that would be a great trip! The World Cup would be premium! After experiencing games at River Plate and Boca Juniors in Buenos Aires, and then visiting the largest soccer stadium in the world, Maracana in Rio, I am in love with futbol. This is the only sport where they search you before you come in...but allow smoke bombs, flares, fireworks and anything that makes loud noise. World Cup fever!

After the soccer, Rafal and I have been tossing around the idea of putting together a little trek up north to Tanzania to hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro...or maybe go gorilla trekking in Bwindi, Uganda in the Impenetrable Forest. These are just ideas...we will see what happens

hope all is well and check back for more updates and design changes to the site.
