Hi Joe and All,
Please don't worry about it. That little fellow has been making his rounds
through a number of mailing lists, and once we are all educated as to how
to deal with him, then we will be better off for it.
Thankfully, he is harmless,for the most part. You can't get a virus by
receiving an e-mail, UNLESS you open the attachment. So, if you see a
virus coming across, or anything suspicious (as one of our listmembers
did)delete it at once!
Sorry to be slow in replying, but I dropped my hubby off in PA, on Tuesday,
to meet a biking friend and they are doing a nine-day trek back to GA. He
has been sending me e-mails telling me just how majestic Virginia and the
Shennandoah Valley are, and how much fun they have had eating along the
I drove the 12 hours through VA into TN, then down to SC, spent the night
and drove home on Thursday. I have been beat! But, you know what, I may
have travelled the route that some of my Izard County folks did, through
Johnson City, TN, Asheville, NC. My MAYFIELDS were over there, near
Jonesborough...very majestic country.
I hope that all of you have a memorable and safe Memorial Day week-end.
