I have not been able to visit blogs for two days not even my own one yesterday! Anytime I clicked on a link a Google warning came up saying I could not be connected as it looked as if the command was coming from an illegal computer or words to that effect! Sometimes I was able to click in to one blog and then was cut off after a couple of minutes! I could not open my own blog yesterday! Definitely worried then,closed down everything checked my Windows defender was working, that was Ok. Then checked if Windows firewall was working that was OK.Then ran a full scan on the Macafee security even though it is set to scan every week. Nothing detected there, not even query?
I am careful about not opening anything I am not sure of and chain emails are deleted immediately. We all get these from time to time passing on prayers etc but anything where you are asked to add your name to a petition etc is a way of gathering email addresses for selling on or spamming.
I turned off the computer and plugged out the whole thing and did not turn on until tonight, so far I am in the clear, Google seems to have decided I am no longer persona non gratia!
No gardening done this week apart from putting my mini greenhouse outdoors, too dark now to take a photo. It is double wrapped with bubble wrap to protect the seedlings. My two spare bedrooms (greenhouses!) are taken up for a week with two students arriving,one on Sat from France and the second on Sun from Denmark.
The house has been decluttered, all my sewing, knitting and painting materials were spread out all over!
Providing Google allows me to stay in the fold I will be back soon with more.
