Sorry...


...that some of you did not get the photos yesterday.  I normally write my blog and then add the photo at the very end.  Yesterday I sent four pictures at once having copied them into the file.  Apparently the code to embed the photos was read differently by some systems.  I could see them on the copy I sent to myself and they were apparent on my web page.  I guess it is one of the mysteries of life.  

By the way, speaking of mysteries, two friends have recently had major problems after they clicked on Malware that indicated they had a virus.  The malware is designed to force you to buy their virus protection.  The operative word is fear.  It is set up to make you believe that your computer is infected and when you are asked if you want to fix it you unwittingly download the malware into your computer.  The only way you can get rid of it easily is to buy the software.  A more complicated way to get rid of it is to click on your start button and go to programs/add/change/delete and then find the malware and remove it that way but you have to be fast.  It is not a virus.  It is Malware.  Mal=bad.  You have to put up with a pop up every ten seconds until you buy the software or remove it.  Just don't ever click on anything if you don't know where it came from or you don't know what it does.
