Eeek! No notice for driver's license renewals!

A friend of mine just broadcast a warning that the Massachusett's Registry of Motor Vehicles no longer sends out letters reminding people to renew their license. YOWZA!

Blog Spam

This is why I moderate the comments on my blog. The marketing scumpuppies at Fortune Park Hotels attempted to leave this comment on a recent blog entry. The original contains links to their web site for phrases like "hotels in Hyderabad" - a phrase they also repeat many times in an obvious attempt to influence search engine results. Grr.

It won’t be wrong to term Hyderabad as one of the most culturally rich places in India. Be it the legacy of the very famous Nawabs, the colorful streets, the exhilarating monuments or the mouthwatering and delicious Hyderabadi food, especially Hyderabadi Biriyani, this south Indian city has always been a hot shot tourist destination. The industrial and infrastructural development in this city in the recent years has only been the icing on the cake. Today the hotels in Hyderabad not only cater to the tourists but also to the business and corporate traveler. There are many business hotels in Hyderabad that are being dished out by the leading names of the Indian hospitality industry. Apart from the budget hotels in Hyderabad, luxury hotels are also abundant in the city. In short be it for work or an existing vacation, hotels catering to each class can be found in the city. With so much happening in this future metro, Hyderabad is actually the place to be!
