Hey Jeff -- wanna know how I "found" it? The moron added me as a Flickr friend. D’oh! I got an email from Flickr saying "Buy Levitra Cialis Drugs Pills has added you as a friend - check out their profile!"Stupid, stupid, stupid.......

Everytime I see a "marketing effort" like that in this day and age I become equally as surprised every time.

Interesting.... a good way to market is to drop an html comment into the comments field in Flickr (it’s do-follow).....
