Many Canadians at this time of year crave the beach because of the long winters here. Unlike them, I love winter, especially when we have lots of snow. Outside it is so clean and fresh looking, the air is cold and crisp, the nights so peaceful and quiet. It is naturally beautiful. As much as I like the beach, living in a country where each of the four seasons are different, I appreciate them all. So for now, winter will be my blog theme.
The temperature outside my house is -20 degrees celsius (-4 degrees fahrenheit) and I think that the beach at the top of my blog was a little inappropriate. I went looking for a nice winter picture to replace the beach and found it with MSN search. After altering it to be a banner for my blog, I posted what I think is reflective of a Canadian winter. The weather will remain cold for only a day or two but winter and snow will be around for several months yet. Enjoy!
A good friend Corrine helped get me moving on this project, by pointing out that my links to other MVP’s blogs, were sorely outdated. When I logged in to make the necessary changes, I decided it was time for a change. I thank her again for her help. I don’t know what I would do without her!
With this update to my blog, I hope to bring you new information in the next while that will help prevent you from becoming a victim of Spyware, Adware, Malware, Viruses, Trojans etc etc. These threats are still very active and every time you connect to the internet, whether it be by email, or surfing the Internet, you put yourself at risk.
My only advice today is to Protect yourself, Protect your computer etc! etc! etc! Get that Antivirus program up-to-date! Get that Anti-Spyware program up-to-date! Set your protection programs on automatic and have them checking for updates hourly. Keep that Firewall at High at all times and if you let someone send you a file, scan it before opening. If you receive an email from someone you don’t know, or even someone you know, be cautious opening it. Scan all attachments before opening them. Remember to Protect yourself, Protect your computer! Protect your Identity!
