I like the feel of a book in my hands and the clean almost linen-like smell of the new crisp pages.  Heck, I even like the look of a book, complete with a pretty bookmark tucked neatly inside, perched on my bedside table.  I am sure … [Read more...]

I live in Atlantic Canada, have been married for many years to an amazing … [Read more...]

The Malware Warning is Finally Gone and I am Overjoyed to be Back!

The pesky malware warning that has plagued my site for almost a week is finally gone!  I'm not sure of the origin of the warning but it may have been linked to a Plug-In I installed just prior to my site crashing.
