Have you noticed that Ihave been eerily silent and invisible?

No I have not perfected a cloaking device.

The last quarter of 2009 was fraught with techno-nightmares for me.

Someone hacked my blog and installed malware. After many tries to remove the invaders, my daughter and personal tech support person, gave up and took down my blog.

Then, everytime I… Continue
