The Great Canadian Invention Series: McIntosh Apple

The McIntosh apple was discovered in 1811 by John McIntosh on a little farm Dundas County, Ontario, Canada. John McIntosh found a group of trees growing wild on this farm, and since the apples then where part of farmer’s nutritious diet, he moved all of them closer to his farm house. To his and other farmer’s surprise one of the trees was producing juicy, crispy and very fragrant apples. However, it was only one apple tree that was bearing them. Branches of that one apple tree were grafted to other apple tree, a technique where branch from one fruit are transplanted into another tree. The result was successful. And this is how the McIntosh apple became the most popular apple in Canada started by the McIntosh family.

Are You Ready to Make Your Own Apple Sauce? Yes you are because it is very simple. Get your ingredients, the McIntosh apples – as many as you wish. Peel, slice or dice all the apples, and cooked them in covered pot until mushy – low heat please. Serve warm or cool, with ice cream, yogurt, or oatmeal.

Stop Spam In Wordpress, Installed reCAPTCH But Still Getting Spam

'reCAPTCHA is a free CAPTCHA service that helps to digitize books, newspapers and old time radio shows. Check out our paper in Science about it (or read more below).

A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You've probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam.

No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.'  Source: reCAPTCHA.

However, if this did not solve your problem in WordPress, you may want to do the following.

In WordPress dashboard under Settings > Discussion, Default article settings section un-check 'Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks)'. It solved my spam issue. I used to get 800 spam comments per week. By installing reCAPCHA in my blog it reduced to 25 spam messages per week. Then I disabled the pingbacks and trackbacks and now I am getting zero spam. Moderate all your comments, that really helps too.
