The 5th Sunday!

Okay, so when a month has five Sundays in it, our church does something different on the fifth Sunday. Sometimes we have a singspiration. One time we had a game and pizza night, which was so much fun. This past Sunday evening we had our annual wiener roast minus the usual hayride because of the cold weather, but in retrospect, it wasn't THAT cold. Anywayyyyy.....Ed and I had considered not going and instead going to church in Nelsonville so we could see Daniel and Erin BUT we went to the weiner roast, okay!?!?!?!?! And we are so glad that we did! We had so much fun and I looooooooove roasted hot dogs! ANDDDDDD.....I didn't even have to roast them! How great is that?? Pastor Martin had one of those sticks that holds like like five hot dogs, so he shared his with me and others. We had a great turnout plus there is a new family that is considering transferring to Logan and they were there, too, so I am really glad that we went to the weiner roast. They have five foster children and one of the little boys sat by me and about talked my leg off but I just love little kids. He had never been to a weiner roast before and was just thrilled with everything about it. I think he is 7 or 8. I roasted marshmallows for him and we talked about legos and the stars and a plethora of things. It was one of the best and most memorable evenings I have spent in a long time. Truly it is good and pleasant for brethren.....and sistren......*grin*.....to dwell together.
Oh, and my brother Johnny was there and brought us all a little bag of candy for Halloween. Well, I was just going on and on about how sweet it was of him to do this for us and he said not to get too carried away with the praise......it was leftover treats that they had prepared to hand out that afternoon when trick-or-treating was going on. Well...okay....it was still thoughtful though...he didn't have to bring them. *grin* I gave some of the candy I didn't care for to the little boy I was sitting with and he thought that was so nice of me.
(I told you the weiner roast was really a good time for all.)

I haven't said anything about my weight loss here of late, so I thought I would give you an update. I started WW with my pastor's wife. We started the last week of July. We were going to the meetings but once we got the information and books that we needed and were well on our way, we stopped going but have continued the eating plan. To date, I have lost 23 pounds! In three months! This is the slowest I have ever lost weight, but hopefully, I am going to keep it off. They say that the slower you lose it, the more likely you are to keep it off. I'm thinking this is my last good chance to lose a sizable amount of weight before the Lord comes. *grin* I want to lose 43 more pounds. Okay, I'll be honest here. I started at 216lbs. I am now down to 193. I want to get down to 150, which is a really good weight for me. I am aiming at getting healthy, more than just losing weight. I am hoping to see a decrease in my pain level, most of all. Oh, and I have managed to lose this weight without exercising, which is a first. I've lost 50 pounds about 5 or 6 times in my lifetime, believe it or not, and each time I exercised intensely. Because of my pain and physical limitations, I've not exercised this time and still I have managed to lose weight. I do a stretching routine and my back exercises every day but they are not what you would consider aerobic. Oh, and when I go to Walmart each week to shop for groceries, I MAKE myself go up and down every aisle in the grocery section. I walk a moderately brisk pace and keep my posture in check. It really is a good way to exercise. It is better than doing NOTHING. *grin*
I am so thankful that I have been able to lose this weight. My brother Bill has been a great encouragement to me. He is a gem!
The only downside is that many of my favorite clothes are getting baggy on me to the point that they don't look very nice on me, but I am hesitant to buy new clothes until I have finished losing all the weight. I may try to alter some of them, though in the past, I haven't been very successful at doing this. Perhaps I'll give it another try!!
I'll keep you posted on my progress!

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."

Tuesday, October 24, 2006


I have election training today from 1-4pm for the upcoming election, Nov. 7. I've read/heard that this election is more important than the upcoming 2008 presidential election. I know that I have had my fill of political ads, commercials, phone calls, mailings and so on. I don't believe I have ever seen such a constant deluge of mud-slinging in my 54 years. I do believe that it is important that we are part of the process. I will say, though, that I told my dear husband that all of the ads and criticisms and so on almost make me want to not vote for any of them! If you would like information on the candidates and issues in your state, go to www.dontvote.com, and click on your state.


We have begun having Monday night prayer each week once again. Previously, we were having prayer on the 2nd Monday of the month. We have also begun to fast regularly as a church body, not just individually. What a difference it is making. The answered prayers. A new and fresh annointing in our services. A spirit of unity and goodness among the saints. New faces at church. We cannot forget the basics.....prayer and fasting. They must be the foundation of all that we do for the Lord and, if we are not careful, all of the other necessary "stuff" can cause us to forget and neglect these two very fundamental necessities. And lest I forget it, the Word of the Lord. "Man shall not live by bread alone;but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...." "Study to shew thyself approved unto God...."

Halloween Candy Update

Heyyyyy.....I was grocery shopping yesterday and saw Three Musketeers at the checkout and I couldn't believe how big they still are! And even though they don't have nuts or caramel, I do kinda like the fluffiness of the inside.

News of the day!

I had a job interview today. Yes, you read correctly. :-) Ed came home a couple of weeks ago and told me there was a job opening at REACH where he transports students to each day in Athens, Ohio. The job description is office manager, meaning I would be a receptionist, file clerk, and whatever else needed to be done in the way of office duties; 10-3pm Monday-Friday.
I believe I am ready to go back to work, to be quite honest. And this sounds perfect for me. I don't have to sit all of the time but I can sit when I want to or need to. So the hours and the sitting/standing situation are good which is what I was most concerned about. Oh, and the starting wage is very good, too. ;-)
So the young man who interviewed me was 31, young enough to be my son. You know you are getting older when pastors/preachers, doctors, bosses and so on are sooooo much younger than you and they are in positions of authority. *sigh* This young man was so nice and we hit it off immediately. I told my girlfriend Pat that they should hire me just for my bubbly personality and wit! *grin* They had received alot of applications/resumes and I was one of three finalists, so to speak, that they actually interviewed, so I feel good about that.
I've prayed about this and believe that if the Lord sees that it is a good thing for me to go back to work then I will get the job. If not, I'll know He has another plan for me. I am so thankful that I can put my trust in such a wonderful Saviour.
I'll keep you posted!!

My granddaughter, Becky, and I thought this list was interesting and we heartily disagree with the order of popularity in which they have the different candies, with the first in the list being the fave and so on. Myself, I would put Snickers in the top spot and then the ever-popular Mars Bar. *smile* And I don't EVEN know what non-chocolate candies are doing the list. I mean, if it ain't chocolate, it ain't candy, right???? *smile*
Can you think of any candy bars that are missing? Two that come to mind for me is Baby Ruth (yes, they still make them) and Heath Bars.

Yahoo reports the most sought after Halloween candy:

Jelly Belly
Mars Bar
Tootsie Roll
Hershey's Chocolate Bar
Jolly Rancher
Hershey's Kisses
Gummi Bears
Life Savers
Salt Water Taffy
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
Candy Canes
Nestle Crunch
Kit Kat

Another picture!

I took this picture of Daniel last Saturday when we went down to see him at his work. He finally got his new shirts and ties and so on. Doesn't he look good? *grin* (remember, I'm his mother so of course I think he looks good)

A birthday remembrance rant

*taking a deep breath*
I mentioned Ed's birthday to Daniel last week and told him not to forget it and he acted shocked that I would even think that he would miss his dad's birthday. I know Daniel. So I called him yesterday to see if he was coming up anytime and he said he would be coming by after he played football from 5:30-7:30 yesterday evening. Erin wouldn't be coming because she would be sleeping which I understood. Daniel finally showed up about 8:15 last night, no card, no little gift of some kind and I'm not even sure he wished his dad a happy birthday. He was here for about a twenty minutes. Brian, his brother-in-law was with him.
Well, what I found out later was that Ed had given him money so that he and Erin could buy a sleigh bed that they have been wanting and needing. They had asked us some time ago if we would buy it for them and it could be their Christmas present this year and they have been needing a new bed. They bought the mattress and boxsprings.
Soooooo, I got to wondering if he would have even stopped by if it had not been for getting the money for the bed. *sigh* I know that sounds awful but I can't help it. Just bein' honest here.
I raised this boy better than this. It isn't like I expected him to go out and rent a marching band or set off fireworks for his dad's birthday but sheesh!
Soooooo, as Ed and I were getting ready for bed.....well, actually Ed was in bed reading and I was getting ready for bed and quietly ranting.....have any of you been there/done that? *feeble grin* I told Ed that we should do the same for Daniel when his birthday rolls around (Jan. 3). No card, no gift, no money, no nothin' and see how it floats with the boy. And then these nagging words starts scrolling through my mind, annoyingly: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Yeah, okay, right. So like I was saying: What would he think if we just kind of skirted past his birthday with little or no acknowledgment? To which Ed replied, "You KNOW you aren't going to do that, Jewel" Oh yeah? Well, ok, you're probably right but I would sure like to.
And about this early Christmas gift of a sleigh bed. We aren't doing Christmas early like this next year. We will exchange our gifts on Christmas or Christmas Eve.
It's just that I raised this boy better than this. He's always given his dad a neat card of some kind and done something for him. I dont' know....maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill. I'm just a little disappointed in him. And after all that his dad does for him and would do for him. But then it is just a birthday. But it was his FATHER'S birthday. I told Ed not to remind him of my birthday which is a couple of weeks away and lets just see if he remembers it. To which Ed replied, "Now are you sure you dont' want me to remind him?" I didn't say anything because it occurred to me that I might be really hurt if he completely forgot and didn't call or come around or anything on my birthday. Gosh, I don't know what to think anymore. I keep telling myself that it doesn't really matter, but then a part of me feels that it does. What do you think, oh wise people out there? Any words of wisdom for this empty-nester mother who is kinda struggling here with this young man she loves so much?

Celebrate Good Times, Come On!!!

Yesterday was Ed’s 64th birthday! For the man who has everything…..well, okay, maybe not EVERYTHING, but I didn’t have the money to go out and buy him a GPS system orrrrrrr a new lawn tractor orrrrrrrrrrrr to have a concrete floor poured for him in the garage or buy him a Gold Wing (Honda Motorcycle) sooooooooo I gave him a box of Whitman chocolates (his fave) and we had cake and ice cream. We don’t do ALOT of gift-giving on birthdays but we do remember eachother’s and have cake and ice cream and so on. I found the sweetest card! Here is what it said on the inside:

Once you’ve loved,

There’s a part

of your heart

that simply belongs

to that person.

It can’t be sold

or rented out –

it’s theirs,

you gave it

to them

and they live in it,

claiming its space

for all time.

I’ll love you forever.

Isn’t that beautiful? Well, at least you girls will understand and think it is. *smile*

So, besides the candy, cake, ice cream, and lovely card, I waited on him hand and foot and was just nice to the deserving birthday boy. *grin*

Monday, Monday, Can't Trust That Day

I was taken aback just a bit yesterday by how down I felt. I was so blue and it seemed that just about every thought I had was negative in some way. It didn’t help that I was in quite a bit of pain and nothing could alleviate it. The day was dreary and rainy. I thought of all the people who are not ready to meet the Lord, all of those who have left the truth, so many of my loved ones not ready to meet the Lord, acting as though they have all the time in the world to serve the Lord. A couple of families who come to our church have either stopped coming or have not been coming very much and I have been grieving over them. I just don’t understand when these things happen. I know life gets busy. I understand that people get their feelings hurt. Still….I want my friends and family and people to be ready to meet the Lord, so much and to experience Him personally and have a relationship with Him like I do. I ran into a couple of people I know when I was out yesterday and talked to them briefly. They both are retired and traveling and trying to save the world, ecologically speaking, and are doing well and look at me, serving the Lord as I do and I honestly think they think I am a space alien or something. They just don’t get it. And then there are those who just don’t believe “this way” anymore. They’ve been “set free”. Yet, there are those who have such respect for me and depend on me to walk this walk and live this Christian life and that is fine……I know of no other way. This is the only life I long to live….for Him. And then I thought of all that I used to do with the youth and then all that I can no longer do or cannot do easily or without pain. It was just a day in which I felt so unnecessary. I was missing the boy (Daniel). I learned he had been sick Sunday and was unable to go to church. We had gone to see him at work Saturday evening and he was not feeling well then. He just doesn’t need me like he used to and that is good. This is how it should be. We don’t see or talk to him and Erin nearly as much since they are going to church in Nelsonville now and he is back in school and she is working two jobs. Their lives are so unbelievably full. I just couldn’t get out of this funk. So yesterday evening rolled around and it was time to go to prayer at church. I thought about not going, though I knew I would……for all the good it would do. *feeble grin* You know THAT feeling, don’t you?

“Until I went into the sanctuary of God…..”

From the moment my knees hit the carpet, the tears came. I just told Him all about everything. I left no stone unturned. I poured my heart out to the One who truly cares and has the time to listen and knows all the answers. Psalm 73 is so awesome and encouraging, I am going to post it here in its entireity:
Psalm 73
1Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart.
2But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
3For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
4For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.
5They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men.
6Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment.
7Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
8They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily.
9They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
10Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them.
11And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
12Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.
13Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
14For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
15If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children.
16When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me;
17Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.
18Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
19How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
20As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
21Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
22So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee.
23Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand.
24Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.
25Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee.
26My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
27For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
28But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

The Lord and His precious word are truly the answer to the wide array of life's difficulties.

The week that was

The picture to the left is of me and my friend Neda. We have been friends for more years than I can even remember. There has not been a week that has passed that she has not called me. Sometimes we say alot, sometimes a little.
Her husband, daughter and I sang at the Fairfield County Fair Monday evening. They have an historic country church there and different people and groups sing every half hour. Mike and I have sung together many, many times, but not Stacy, Mike and I. We practiced a little that afternoon. We were all a little nervous. I was mostly apprehensive about what kind of sound system would be there and what kind of keyboard. Well, as it turned out, both were top-notch. Thank you, Jesus! We sang: Before the First Round Started, The Old Rugged Cross, O I Want To See Him, What a Day That Will Be and one other song that I can't remember at the present time. Well, the harmony was awesome. You can sing with alot of people and it may sound "okay" but then there are people that you sing with and oh my goodness! The harmony is so tight and clear and beautiful! I felt like I had died and gone to trio-singing heaven!! LOL It was awesome. We are just going to HAVE to sing together again soon! Perhaps they can come to Logan and sing at church with me sometime in the near future! I hope!!

Is this really necessary???

My dear husband has been giving out some pretty gross burps today. Yes, you heard me correctly. *sigh* *feeble grin* Okay, I'll take part of the blame.....I made some delicious chili, ok? Now, me? I am not a "burper". For one thing, we were taught as children to burp modestly. You know the drill: Cover your mouth, turn your head and do it quietly. Apparently, Ed had a different upbringing. LOL I really don't mind his burping but I did tell him that he could at least say "excuse me" and that it is not very conducive to kissing. Yuck! LOL Oh Well! I love the guy....burps and all. But all of this talking about burping brings back a memory: Several Christmases ago, I was sooooo sick that I could not go to Ed's family gathering, so he and Daniel went. Well, in the process of their going or coming, Ed taught Daniel how to burp his uncle Robert's name! LOL ANDDDDD he taught him how to burp the alphabet! Now, I ask you: Was this something he needed to know to get through life??? *smile* I think not. But it HAS been somewhat entertaining over the years. I can't think of the title right now, but there is a song that I used to sing....a church song.....and Daniel burped the rythym to it. LOL I know, I know.....you all are really wondering about us now, aren't you???? *grin* I'll have to ask Daniel what the song was. Gosh but it was soooooo funny! The boy is a one-man entertainment center, let met tell you! Oh, but even before Ed taught Daniel how to burp the alphabet, my nephew Troy taught Daniel how to swallow air and burp, so I guess you could say that is where Daniel really got his start in burping, as if it is something to be proud of! LOL But what memories we have!!!

A progression of sorts

Well, I drove the church van to General Conference Wednesday evening and we had a full load, let me tell you! I am so used to taking just young people, so it was great to have the adults along this time, too. Pastor Martin drove his car and took some people and the McCarthy's drove their van and took some, too. I drove the van just because I was the only person comfortable with driving in that area of Columbus and some others had worked all day and so on. I didn't mind at all because I actually like driving in Columbus...*weird, I know!*. The PMA music fest was great but I wish they would have had more southern gospel, like the McGruders or the Aqua quartet because so many people do like that genre of music. I love it all and I do wish they would have had more of a variety. About 3/4 of the way through the concert, people just started leaving in droves. I asked Ed what was going on and he said, "I don't know, but they're getting out of here like rats out of a sinking ship!" He has such a way with words!! *smile* Then, when they were honoring people who had contributed much to apostolic music, they were in the process of honoring Bro. Wendell Gleason, who we did not know. I leaned over to Ed and said, "I know Bro. Stan Gleason, though" and Ed said, "I knew Jackie Gleason"! He never stops, folks.......*grin* A sidenote: I did really good walking and getting around this night and I was thankful for that!!

Thursday morning of conference, three other ladies from church and I went to the ladies service. We met Sis. Martin there and we sat in section 114, I believe it was. We sat just four rows from the bottom and the steps were a bit difficult for me to maneuver, but I managed. BUT, I had to hike out of there to go to the restroom twice and it was not a pretty picture. Then, I was just about freezing to death. So, Sis. Martin let me borrow her coat and I snuggled up under neath it and, I am sorry, but I was soooo sleepy, I just had to nap a little during Sis. Haney's message! The Passing of the Mantle ceremony was beautiful, to say the least. At the end of it, Sis. Haney asked the younger ministering ladies to pray for those who had needs. Well, I was in so much pain, but I couldn't make it down to the center area, so I was finally able to make it over to the stairway and I asked two young women (minister's wives) to pray for me after telling them of my physical problems. They prayed so fervently for me. It was so awesome.
On the way home, the four of us ladies stopped at Teejaye's in Lancaster and had a late lunch. It was sooooooo good! But I was still freezing and this is just not like me....to be cold. I came home and bundled up in bed and slept and rested the rest of the evening.

I was back up early Friday morning to take the young people to the youth service at GC. I was in quite a bit of hip and leg pain and borrowed a cane from a sweet lady at church. I have to use a step stool to get in the van, too. I used to just climb up into it and then jump out of it but I can no longer do that. I probably shouldnt' have ever been doing that but....oh well.....it is a bit late for that now, hm? *feeble grin* The youth service was wonderful and the message by Bro. McLaughlin was absolutely awesome. You need to get this cd...trust me!! I let the youth go over to the convention center to see the exhibits but I was not able to hike that far so I stayed at the arena and chatted with people.....Sis. Ann Frakes and Bro. Terry Gunn were two of the nice folks I talked with. The young people were very prompt in getting back to the arena on time and we headed home!

I did not go to conference on Saturday, though I truly wanted to but I had to get some things done here at home, get ready for class and music on Sunday morning and I was in quite a bit of pain.

We left the church at 4pm Sunday afternoon for the evening crusade. The van was full and there were others that drove up. It was so great to be going up as a church family! And we were really excited because Dana, a lady in her 70's who just had double knee replacement, was going and she needed the holy ghost!! She had repented and been baptized. Of course, she's still in a wheelchair most of the time but she is walking some. She is such a sweetie. Wellllllll.....SHE RECEIVED THE HOLY GHOST SUNDAY NIGHT!! It was so awesome! Many people came up to Dana and prayed with her but it was Sis. Swain that stayed with her and prayed with her so kindly until she received the Holy Ghost. Hallelujah!! We have been rejoicing all week, as you can imagine! I just love it when older people, like Dana, receive the Holy Ghost. My mother received the Holy Ghost when she was 70, so we can never, never give up on our loved ones! I had been serving the Lord for 24 years when my mother finally received the Holy Ghost. It was unbelievably awesome. Keep praying and believing for your loved ones!

And there you have a wrap-up of sorts of GC!

Old News is Good News

Okay, so I know that I told you about me and Theresa, my friend from Mt. Vernon, spending the day together, but there are also some pictures! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! LOL
Of course the one at the left is of me and Theresa. The one below is of Ed endeavoring to take our picture and, as you can see, he managed!!

He's been promoted!

Daniel is now 2nd shift manager at McDonald's/The Plains on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights! We are so proud of him. We went down to see him last night as it was his first night on the job by himself without supervision. Doesn't he look handsome? *grin*
You see, we have really been missing him. *sigh* Now that he and Erin are going to church in Nelsonville, we just don't see them nearly so much. And he is back in school. AND working 2nd shift. ANDDDDDDDDDD Erin Maree is working two jobs at the present time! So we really try not to bother them too much. Before school started back for Daniel, he was working 7-3 every day so Ed would stop in on his way home from taking his students to REACH and see Daniel. Well, now Daniel isn't there, sooooo.......it has been a little difficult for Ed, but the girls at McDonald's still give him free coffee. *grin* Anywayyyy....we got to McDonalds at about 7pm and there was the BOY. He said hi and said "I miss you guys" kind of quietly and I said, "Ohhh, probably not NEEEAARRLLY as much as we miss you" and he just chuckled. Then I commenced to taking his picture ( I took my camera on purpose! *feeble grin*) and he said, "Mommm, am I ever gonna hear it after you guys leave." and he laughed. I told him to tell me who gave him a rough time about his mom taking his picture, later and I would come back and beat them up! *lol* Well, we got something to drink, talked with him for a little while and then came home. We sometimes get concerned about Daniel and Erin having too much on their "plates" but then we remember they are YOUNG and we are OLD. *grin* Gosh, I used to run myself like crazy when I was their age and even older. Well, actually, up until I began having trouble with my back and legs this past November/December. And I didn't even think anything about all that I could do in a day's time but I remember my sister and friends and co-workers just being amazed at everything that I did and could do in a day and so on. Maybe that is why I am in the shape I am in now? I don't know.....it's just a thought. Like yesterday, Daniel was at school from 8am-5pm, went straight home, got ready for work and then worked until 1:30am. When we were there seeing him he was full of vim and vigor. *sigh* Oh, to be young again! LOL So I guess we do need to remind ourselves that they are young and full of energy and that we are on the other side of 50 and winding down some. Well, it is getting late and this "old" person needs to get to bed! Ha ha! So until tomorrow......Goodnight to all and to all a good night!

Okay, I think I'm ready!

Okay, first of all, my computer kept shutting off. Just shutting off...... I had this really long, detailed blog post ready last week and my computer just shut off! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!! Well, it has this illness. I have had my computer for about two years. A few months after I had it, it began doing this "shutting off" thing. After talking to three or four different tech support people at HP, it was finally recommended that I do a power drain on it because it sounded like it was building up static electricity. Sure enough, that was what it was and the power drain remedied it! I have had to do it two times since the first time, including this most recent time. And then, I got a trojan virus, of all things!!!! I have an anti-virus program but somehow this got past it!!! Sooooooo, I downloaded Trojan Hunter and that is now remedied and my computer is all well!! For the time being anyway!!! Trojan Hunter is the bomb!
I think I know when I got the trojan. I was perusing the internet looking for an autumn wallpaper for my pc. I found one I liked and just as I was putting it on my computer a flash of a warning came up about a trojan virus on this website but it was too late! I was infected. (that sounds kind of gross,hm???) So I scanned with my virus program and there were THREE on my pc. But not to worry! They are now history and my pc is operating wonderfully!!! *whew* I just hate when stuff like that happens to my computer! Thankfully, it seldom happens!
Sooooooo, I will now commence to blogging and emailing and other sundry web activities!!
