Miraculously, Friday morning I awoke and turned my computer on, hoping to be able to start it in safe mode. Instead it just started right up.... I've been doing some insane anti-virusing all weekend. So far I've managed to keep my computer running and functional. I'm still having trouble with the virus itself and my anti-virus software, while it has found all the threats, cannot remove them (because that's what viruses do: make your anti-virus software obsolete. Genius!) so I've downloaded a third anti-virus program. It's helped a lot, but my computer tends to crash on me before I've had a chance to clean up the viruses!
For the record, Carisa - I made pumpkin bars for the first time last night. They were so good that the entire sheet was gone by this morning and I even converted cousin-"iew, who the heck eats pumpkin?"-Angela to them. I asked her to try just one little bite and she did. Then she ate an entire slice. And then she kept eating them. I AM THE BOMB!
