I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday, and that your New Year is off to a great start!
It’s been a loooong time, since I was last here. I’ve been busy, but I’ve also been fighting a little thing called malware. Now because I really dislike long posts, I’m going to try to be brief here. As a matter of fact, I’ll just tell you the important stuff first, and then if you want to read more, you can.
The Important Stuff: If you are using a host for your site (not something like Blogger or WordPress.com), please be very sure you look into a scanner (detection/fix) or better yet a firewall (prevention) for your site. End of The Important Stuff.
September: I am notified by my host that my site has been deactivated due to detection of malware. After hours on the phone, things seem back to normal.
October: See above, only replace “hours” with “days.”
November: See above, only this time, down time was just about 2 weeks, and I stopped counting the number of hours, and the people I spoke with, trying to get things fixed.
You see, the malware that someone “gifted” me was on a timer. Set to go off at given intervals. As of now, it looks like things are back to where they should be. In reality, it should have hit again 2 days ago, but it did not, so maybe everything is now in place, and will remain that way.
Again, please heed the warning. This is NOT something you want to have to deal with. Especially if you are technically challenged (like me!). I must admit though, I sure have learned a lot having been through this. Have to find the silver lining, right?
About this picture…
We are taking down Christmas decorations this weekend, except for the tree, which I just want to leave decorated for another week. Taking pictures while doing so. Possible Christmas card for next year!!
Have a wonderful week ahead!
Last week when I posted the picture of our resident doe, I did not tell you that I knew she had a baby. It seemed kind of silly to say, “I know she has a baby, but I don’t have a picture of it for you!” Well, I did know, but I also knew that she was not letting it come up over the hill to the feeder. I am guessing she just wanted to wait until it was a bit older. What I didn’t know, is that not only does Mama have one baby, she has twins, and she let them come up the hill to the feeder early this morning. They are definitely more difficult to photograph than are the adults. They just kind of run and bounce around all over the place, and trying to get both of them together in one photo was almost impossible. But I got a few, and thought you’d like to see. Really, are they not the most precious little things???
