It took me over two hours to post Abby's blog tonight... or to load it. The problem may be with Hughesnet, because I have run a full scan on the computer and found no Trojans.
Tomorrow, I tackle Hughenet Customer Service.
Wish me luck!
And now, a word about Trojans.
I have slowed up on Pinterest, I realized it was taking too much of my time, and frankly, there was so MUCH, it was hard to look at. I try to look at the background of each pin before pinning, because several times, I have found pins that read that Pinterest warned you not to pin it.
I also saw a picture on there Friday that dismayed me... it was a soft pornographic picture, that's all I can say about it, of a voluptuous young woman offering herself, undressed from the waist up... and the caption left no doubt as to what the poster intended. I was glad to see that it was gone a few hours later.
But the worse thing was, while checking the computer yesterday for why it was so slow, I checked my virus protection. There, in the log, was a trojan that was stopped. It was linked to a site posted on Pinterest called Franklin Castle, which was an old mansion down south. I love old houses, and had followed the pin and read about it. It tried to get me.
Beware, people, that's all I am saying. My virus protection caught it and quarantined it, and I disposed of it.
Just be aware that they are out there on Pinterest, too.
Now, today amongst all kinds of things, I worked on these:
Yes, that's tomato "Gypsy" from Baker Creek, touching the light fixture. The lights are up on small pieces of wood, not hung, and I have to keep raising them with more ... wood.
Oh, we need that greenhouse.
I transplanted today, but of course, forgot to take pictures.
I bought light fixture number four, got the bulbs in it, and it will not come on. I am either missing something (there is no chain) or it is supposed to come on automatically when plugged in. I am waiting for Keith to come home this evening to look at it and clue me in.
I transplanted the Gypsy seedlings into larger Jiffy cups. Each had good root systems started, because I used larger flats to start them. Next year, we will have room to spread out in the greenhouse.
The snows of February and early March kept us from starting it, but it will be up soon enough, though
first off, we are putting a front on the three sided barn, in case two little goats find their ways here.
That should start tomorrow.
Keith took Abby to the vet today, to have her eyes checked, and her pedicure. She had lost a pound and a third... this is a MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT for her and for her momma!
We are getting much more excercise, and eating lots of green beans as filler.
We have also switched to a dry food.
She does have to have drops now three times a day for her eyes, which are showing a sign of dryness. Pugs often have this malady.
Another view of the tomato plants.
Those are perennial flowers behind them, I am starting some from seed as an experiment. So far, so good. They are slow to start... and will be under light for a while, but what satisfaction to grow my own instead of paying 12.00 a plant for them.
I had some other pictures, but I have tried for over an hour to add one... it loads and then erases itself, over and over and over... I am giving up for the night, I have a headache and it's making it worse.
I'll try to show you the rest tomorrow.
That's it for another discouraging posting evening from Calamity Acres.
