A couple of days ago we took a walk around the lake......and the wind had made tiny ripples in the ice on the top of the water, too......interesting to see...... At other times the ice is very smooth....

Their house is in escrow, so I might be helping her pack, I dunno... 37 years, thicker than thieves......with terminal cancer, you know it's coming, but it doesn't make it any easier. It didn't when we lost dad either.....his birthday was 2/1.......

I ordered a new dog food for Queenie. It's made by Paul Newman and is all organic. But it was apparently too rich for her.

Last night she kept whining and nudging me to let her outside every 15 minutes. I didnt realize that she was having diarrhea in the yard -- I thought she was just going outside because she was bored. And I wasnt feeling well enough to keep getting up, so I finally told her to just lie down and be quiet.

Well, you know what I found when I finally got up today...watery diarrhea all over the living room and kitchen. Poor Queenie. I couldnt be mad at her. I gave her some Immodium and propped the back door open for her.

So she and I are both in our beds, feeling miserable today.
We currently have the opposite problem at our house.......he'd had 2 beef bones lately, (very, very unusual), and 1 pig skin roll, and unbeknownst to me, both of us let him have too much cheese, (he is such a beggar), and I am kicking myself in the butt for letting him have it, especially the pig roll....(and he had a dried pig ear, too)......so for the last two days, it's pumpkin, applesauce, no cheese, sprinkling benefiber on stuff, and I even let him have bacon, hoping the grease would help him.....and I just gave him a graham cracker, too. We might have to go to the vet tomorrow.....grrrrr.

He cried out several times during the night......when he does this, I need to immediately wake up, put on sweats, jacket, hat, umbrella to shield from wind and snow, something on my feet, gloves if I can remember......and go out there to see if he can go...... My husband can't hear him cry out.......only me......

At least it is warm enough so you can open your doors and let the stinkiness out, so that part is good... All this when you feel like crap and have no help, tfw.......I'm sorry.

Always good to see you Wurzig, I'm really sorry about your friend. Will you be making a trip to CA?

I have a friend who just started radiation and chemo for the third time in 3.5 years. It is so hard
knowing how much they have to go through both physically and emotionally. Makes me feel silly
for whining over stupid crap like a flat tire or something.

It's late and time for bed. I got some stuff posted so there wasn't such a lag in tomorrow. I'm not sure how long I'll be working in the morning or what I'll be doing in the afternoon. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

FEEL BETTER SOON TFW!!!!

So sorry about your friend, Wurzig. I wish I had some magic words to make you feel better.

And sorry about your dog's problem. I dont know which problem is worse. I'm still having to give Queenie Imodium. She doesnt have diarrhea any longer but she has very loose stools and has to "go" right after she eats -- which isnt often, as she still doesnt want to eat much.

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble. Can't you call your credit card companies instead of checking online?

That's great idea, DFW. I'll do that. My concern is that a Trojan might still be there, hidden from Malwarebytes and Kaspersky, or that another Trojan could be dropped on me tomorrow.

I never, ever click on email links and am so careful about surfing the web. Too, I havent been on the computer much because of my illness. So I dont know how I'd have gotten the Trojans (I actually got two of the same one, an hour apart, in different drives).

I'm wondering if it's possible for a computer-savvy guy to drop a Trojan on my computer if he has my IP address. There's a computer guy who's upset with me because I complained about some content on his website. My complaint was filed Friday morning and I got two the Trojans Friday afternoon. Could that be just a coincidence?

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, Wurzig. I know y'all knew it was coming but that does not make the loss any easier.

TFW...I don't know what programs you have on your computer, but some are quite essential. Here is an easy to follow video on how to get rid of a trojan virus.....without it costing you anything.

How to Remove a Virus, Malware, Trojans and hacks from your PC Part 1 - YouTube

Without doubt, you also need this:
CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
Actually, EVERYONE should have this. It is the first thing every computer tech will tell you. It is free. I use it 3-4 times a day, depending on how much surfing I am doing, to keep my computer clean and fast. You also want to use it every single time you download anything. Just keeps stuff in order.

You can also ask any questions over in the computer section of CD. I've gotten great help in their in the past.

For around $40, you can take your computer in and have it done for you.

HAPPY SUNDAY!

I took the whole day off from CD yesterday. After I got home mid afternoon, I decided to do some reading about the Scottish Covenanters....and I kept running into all this interesting stuff. Then I took Izzy to McDonalds, then watched a movie.

I guess today is the big super bowl event. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend....football or not.
