Please let me fuss some

As you know, I've been going to this forum where we can talk about anything. It's really a great place to go. Anyway, lately it seems like some people come there only to cause trouble. I get so tired of hearing the same old thing. The owner of the place seems to be trying to put past differences to rest and welcome any and all that feel have been done wrong there. But it seems like everytime he tries all they want to do is fuss some more about the same thing. I'm so tired of hearing about this. Can't they at least try to get along? We are supposed to be adults after all. Maybe one day!

Now about the program. I want to apologize for not putting the page on the other day like I was supposed to. I fixed it on the page here and forgot to tranfer the page to the site. If you will go there now, you can see the picture I send in March. I just can't wait until I can post the one for April. This guy really did a great job of drawing these pictures for the children. I know you will like them. Anyway, I really just wanted to fuss some. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

God's blessings on you all.

I need your help

I want to start a page about children and teens that have done something extraordinary. The thing is I don't know where to look. If you know of someone that has done something for other children or the community, please let me know about it.

Now onto other news. I just received some pictures today that were donated to the program. All the pictures were hand drawn. I can't wait to put them on the site and I will just as soon as the children have had a chance to see them. The person that did these did a great job. I can't wait for the children to see them. I wish I could see the children's faces when they receive these. I know they will like them. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what is going on here. Tomorrow I will put the latest picture on the site for all to see. It won't be near as good as the drawings, but then I never said I could draw. I'm just glad that there are printshops that have lots of clipart.

God's blessings to everyone.

Beware, Security Issue

I don't usually talk about this on my journal, but I wanted today. I've been getting a lot of emails with viruses in them. Luckily I don't open them until I can scan it with my anti-virus program. I want to warn everyone about this. If you get an email with an attachment from someone you don't know, please don't open it until you have scanned it. One of the best anti-virus programs I've found is AVG. It is a free program that doesn't tie your ram up while it's trying to run.

Here are a few tips to remember,
1. Microsoft will never, ever send you an email telling you you need to download an update. If you get one of these, please disregard it because it will more than likely have a virus or worm in it.

2. Watch emails from your internet provider. While the people that sends these can make them look real, if you get one I would suggest that you call your provider just to make sure they really did send it before you open it. I got one that looked legit and because I called just to make sure, I kept a worm out of my machine. This one had a link to follow. Of all things, it was wanting me to download an anti-virus program. I promise, your provider will not mind the call and will probably congratulate you for being so intelligent. They understand that you are being cautious. I've also gotten some that look like they come from a site I visit, only to find out that it is a virus. If you don't want to do some of the things I've suggested earlier, save the attachment to a folder that can be found easily, and scan the file with your anti-virus program.

I know this is covered all over the place, but some things just can't be repeated enough. I keep hearing about people getting viruses because they opened an attachment that had one in there. You need to watch that.

Anyway, that is all I wanted to say today. I hope you have a great week.

God's blessings.
