Good day,Im Princess Chantal S.Yonli,the only daughter of Late, Mr/Mrs Yonli S.Kamara, a licensed solid mineral (gold, diamond,cocoa marchant Importer&Exporter) during his days, resently before my father passed away,he called me privately that he had a deposit valued ($4.5 million)and a deposit of 350 kilos,(22 Carat) ALLUVIAL GOLD DUST which he intended to move abroad for investment on my behalf.
Please get back to me so that i can tell you why i contacted you in this regards. I will be waiting for your response.
I end up reading these just because I find them highly amusing. I especially love it when the English is just plain bad. They often don't do their homework when translating their scams, which consequently a dead give away. This one is a little better. I love the mystery. "contact me so I can tell you why I contacted you" OOooooo. Maybe I'm the lost heir of mer Late Yonli Kamara. Maybe I was actually adopted and I never knew it. How did this ever get in my spam folder, its important stuff!!! lol

Its been great to talk to other about what's going on, to rant, to get ideas, to ask professors about their opinions, etc etc. There are a ton more resources out there as well. This is just scratching the surface. Send me an email if you have any more questions about how twitter (or social networking in general) works.
Talk to you later.

One of my twitter friends wrote a nice little blog entry describing the benefits of social networking for SLPs. @RhiannanW wrote an article called "Start Tweeting, Speechies!". You should give it a read over, or at least go to her website Therapy Ideas which is a great resource for SLPs in general.
By the way, if you do want to join us at twitter, my name there is @speechbob.

Grad school friends! Where are you? What are you up to? When will I see you again?
PS: Maybe a better question would have been- who looks at this blog? We should all click on the "followers" link so it emails you if anyone posts.
Do you guys know about Google Reader? If not, you should ask me in an email- it's great.

I got this email from one of my 3rd grade teachers at school. I thought y'all might enjoy this. By the way, if you are on twitter, my speech twitter account is speechbob, feel free to follow me, I have several SLPs on my list from across the globe, not a bad way to network with other professionals.
How would you pronounce this child's name?
She spells her name "Le-a"
So how would YOU pronounce her name?
Lee - A? ................. NOPE.
Lay - a? ............ NOT A CHANCE.
Lei?..........NICE TRY, BUT GUESS AGAIN!
This child attends a school in Livingston Parish, LA.
Her mother is irate because everyone is getting her child's name wrong.
She says it's pronounced "Ledasha."
When the Mother was asked how in the world she figured
it should be pronounced that way, she said,
"cause the dash don't be silent!"
So, if you see a name come across your desk like this,
please remember to pronounce the dash.
And if anyone axes you why, tell dem it's 'cause the dash don't be silent!
Someone... pleeeeze, pleeeze tell me dis don't bes true!
Surely, someone bes jokin' wid us?!?!
