mail has been initiated by a low life, who is maliciously
sending it out with a false '@wyenot.com' suffix in the

have been disseminated by the returned mail I am receiving
on a regular basis. I have also received many copies of
the mail myself.
is no 'Wyenot Team' - only me. I do not issue 'Wyenot
Accounts' and I certainly do not send out spam or other
do not believe it!
I personally find nothing more annoying than junk email,
junk mail and those phone calls from people selling double
glazing or time share. They do have their moments though.
A few years ago, I happened to practising my trumpet when
somebody selling mortgages rang, I calmly asked the caller
if they could wait for a moment, put the phone down and
once composed with both lungs filled to capacity, blasted
the trumpet as loudly as I could into the mouthpiece of
the phone. For some strange reason, the caller hung up.
call I received the other day however, really made me
wonder about the human race. Following the announcement
in last week's news of the death of my mother, I answered
the phone last Wednesday morning to a caller who asked,
'Is that Alan Wood of Wyenot.com?'
'Speaking,' I replied, thinking the caller wanted to talk
about Ross-on-Wye or something similar. 'I realize that
this is a really bad time to call you,' he continued,
in a mock sympathetic voice, 'but I am from. . .'
I didn't quite catch the name of the company but imagined
that it might be somebody who wanted to use the web site,
so carried on listening.
'Have you thought about renewing your fascia boards and
guttering recently?' he asked!
just say that my short reply would have made Mum turn
in her grave and that, had he been a door to door salesman,
he would have discovered how successfully, with the help
of a little Vaseline, twenty feet of fascia board can
be taken anally, as a remedy for bad taste!
