Recently a technically knowledgeable friend tried in vain to remove a virus from my computer. I have a free virus protection that worked fine for years. At his suggestion when a Trojan invaded my computer, I paid for and downloaded Norton Antivirus protection, and thought the problem was solved. Well, the antivirus is working great but the computer certainly is not! In trying to work within Photoshop Elements III, everything froze up and never did work until I rebooted. The computer freezes up for minutes at a time when I try to open and read my e-mail. In fact, the whole computer seems to freeze up for way too much of the time and the only difference from a month ago is this Norton Antivirus. I no longer have a virus but I don’t seem to have a computer that works either! Technology is so great when it works. My hair is a whole lot shorter now since I’ve been pulling it out by the roots!
Even tho it happened probably 200 miles away, I felt the tremble of the earthquake that hit along the Mexico/CA border a few days ago. I didn’t see the movement in the computer where I was working (it was probably frozen up, as usual) but my body felt really strange, best described as feeling a little faint. In the late 1980s when a major earthquake hit near Mexico City, I was living on a Baja beach for the winter and felt much the same thing.
Well, the good news is that my yard is filling with flowers after all the rain we had this winter. I just discovered via the Internet that they are probably Mexican poppies (4 petals) rather than Arizona poppies (5 petals). At any rate, they are beautiful and they cheer me up. How do you like the Inukshuk (top photo) guarding my yard? God Bless until next time.
