    Bump part II

    First some note on the ingredients. The oatmeal should be run though a blender until it is very fine. The chocolate bar that you need to grate is the kind you buy to eat on the way home from the grocery store, use your favorite, but you will need to buy a pretty big one. Chocolate also grates easier if it is nice and cold.
    For the recipe, start out by creaming the butter and lard (you can vary the ratio of these a little) with the sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and oatmeal, then mix it into the batter. Thoroughly mix in the grated chocolate bar, then add in the chocolate chips (and nuts if you like.)
    Bake as usual, at about 375 degrees for roughly 10 minutes depending on the size of your cookies.
    3/4 cup Butter
    1/4 cup Lard
    1 cup White Sugar
    1 cup Brown Sugar
    2 Eggs
    1 tsp Vanilla
    2 cup Unbleached Flour
    2 1/2 cups Oatmeal (thoroughly blended)
    1 tsp Baking Soda
    1 tsp Salt
    1 tsp Baking Powder
    12 oz Milk Chocolate Chips (one bag)
    4-6oz Finely Grated Chocolate Bar
    1 1/2 cup Chopped nuts (very optional)

    Hi, Some help. Your email address is being used to try and send spam, it happens because your email address was found or "harvested somehow, they are often sold to spammers. The term also used for what has happened is your email address is being "spoofed". The messages may or may not actually contain viruses, but do NOT click on any attachments that come in.

    Random Text Generators:

    No matter how much blocking you do, the spammer will eventually just change HIS address so that your filters do not recognize it, dont block it,etc. You MAY try blocking the domain itself> if it is something like Yahoo.com, you will not get any mail from there anymore, though!

    your ISP may be able to help you by providing a different email addy, this means a bunch of work for you though.

    Perhaps they have an alternate server you can get your email through, or can help you set up a spam bouncer.

    There are some worms that also send random text...but I think you would have found that by now, they usually come as attachments or have attachments. Worms can also gather email addresses and send mails to them...so it looks like the infected email came from your computer:
    You then get email from recipients of bounced emails that they think came from you> and on and on it goes.

    Thank You Byteman that discussion is very helpful; I think I understand now I'll delete them without review, that won't stop them but understanding what's going on sets my mind at ease.

    Thanks again Bob-
