Thanks for dropping by today to see what I’ve been up to. This has been one of the hottest weeks we’ve had this summer… not dreadful, but hot.
I was out earlier in the week cutting grass – thank goodness it’s a riding mower – and something happened. I think it must have been a broken belt because the mower wouldn’t move when I pressed the gas. I called a few places to see if they either did home site repairs or pickups. They didn’t. I sent DS a note to see if he would come and help get it on my dad’s trailer so I could take it to the shop in the weekend. I left it (no other real choice) in the front yard, and you’re not going to be surprised… When I got up the next morning, it was gone! What?!? Yes, Gone. I’ve called a few ‘lawn maintenance’ places, but haven’t heard back with any quotes on what it will cost to cut and edge my yard. They’re probably afraid to tackle it – or don’t want to cause heart failure at the cost. So – I have to find the model and serial number before I can get a police report, and I have to get a police report before I can file an insurance claim. What a bother!And speaking of bother… someone is using my email address to spam people from my contacts list. I have notified yahoo, and they say they are ‘on the case’ but that doesn’t prevent my contacts from being bothered with pesky email that appears to be from their ‘friend’ csogle. If a message comes to you from a known email address, but does not have a subject or signature line (in my case), you know it isn’t from me so don’t follow the link. By the time I have found out about this, it has gone to my friends, coworkers, yahoo email groups – and I am sorry!! I found this when searching for a resolution, and it gave me a bit of peace.
“What's important here is simply this: one way or another email viruses lie about who sent them.
If someone accuses you of sending a virus-laden email, and you are positive you did not, then you have very little recourse other than trying to educate them about how viruses work. Point them at this article if you like. But be clear: you're not necessarily infected nor is the person who received the mail claiming to be from you. It's some third party who is. (And identifying that third party is difficult - this is why virus writers use this technique.)
And of course be sure that you're not going to get infected yourself: don't open attachments from people you don't know and make sure you have an up-to-date virus checker and virus definitions file. “
Hope you’re having a great weekend, doing fun things with the people you love most.
