Caught a Virus

Not only am I immunosuppressed, but apparently my computer is, too.  How fitting that this particular virus attacks and removes drivers, leaving the computer with all its physical components, but limited ability to make do what they’re supposed to do.

My apologies for not replying to comments that people have been leaving, and EXTRA apologies if you’re one of the people in my “real” address book since that might put you at risk of the computer deciding to send out messages on its own.  If we’ve only ever corresponded via the WarmSocks address, then you shouldn’t be at risk.

Once my computer starts behaving again, I’ll try to get caught up on posts from all my wonderful cyber friends whom I’ve been missing terribly.

Hope your life is running more smoothly than mine has been lately! 🙂

A Little Housekeeping

I recently discovered that my spam filter caught a number of legitimate messages people have sent me about this blog.  My apologies if you sent me a message and didn’t hear back.  I’m working my way through the folder; if you don’t hear back from me by Monday, please try again using the blog form.  I’ve added a contact form to the About/Contact page in hopes that this won’t happen in the future.

In general

  • for those who asked about putting an ad on my blog, thank you for asking, but I’d prefer not to have ads.  If you have a good product, send it to me free and I’ll try it out.  If I like it, I’ll say so – and if I don’t, I’ll say that, too 🙂
  • for those inquiring about writing a guest post, send me details and I’ll consider it
  • other inquiries, I will get back to you as soon as I can


Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
