Frank is really NOT an evil spammer, I promise...

It was brought to my attention about a week ago that our email posts were not going out. I looked into it and sure enough, something was wrong with our website’s email program.

It has taken me a full week to figure out what was wrong, but I have now finally resolved the issue. Unfortunately, my website is now trying to kill itself by sending out all of the emails that previously did not go out (including one or two that I tried several times to send with no success).

I just wanted to apologize to those of you who have received/will receive over the next few hours a bunch of emails from us. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make it stop. Remember, I’m a tea blender, not a web guru.

At this point, I can’t even post our new tea of the week for fear of overloading the email system. When the dust clears (in a few hours, I think (My email program can only send 400 emails per hour and we have a lot more than that on our mailing list)), I will post the tea of the week, and your inbox should quiet down—at least in regard to OUR emails.

I am very sorry. Please don’t unsubscribe.

—Frank

First off, it is never a good idea to post your email address on a public message board. I am not wanting to sound mean, it is just that real spammers get ahold of your email and send a crazy amount of messages your way. Second, I have seen recipes online (try Google for a search) for the tea that you are referring to, and you can usually get the ingredients at health food stores.

I’ve never once gotten spam related to any public posting of my e-mail (Facebook and Steepster). Anyway, back to your question- it can be found at Aveda salons or at www.aveda.com

No worries. I have only gotten one and honestly I don’t mind emails from you. :-) However, I do appreciate the heads up.

It’s OK… I much prefer tea spam to spam about enlarging … err … um … nevermind.

Yeah. I hate it when I get those emails about enhancing my bust. My moobs are big enough! =)

Spam, spam, bacon, eggs and spam. Wait, it’s towel day, not Monty Python Status Day (That was last week).

Hope everybody remembered their towel today.
