Feeding the beast has not been easy lately. Maybe I jinxed myself by writing about earlier. Smart ass.
College graduation is now over for my youngest. He has applied to Grad. School at his alma mater. Will know acceptance (please!) or not soon.
After three days, I resolved a virus on his PC. He called it a STD; I laughed at that (about the only time during). Learned a few things with that experience. Like, restore points, up to date virus definitions and boot options (there are several).
May 29 Virus Update -> Turns out that ‘Spyware Protect 2009’ is malware that has been going around for a while. I manually removed a exe called ‘sysguard’ that seemed to remove it. Here are some links to install and clean an infected PC (note – I have not used either). SWP removal link#1 seems quick and easy and removal link #2 may be a bit nore involve, based on description only.
Pool has been open for a week; water is almost 65 degrees. No one has gone in…but I’ve cleaned it twice already.
Celebration Alley continues – My wife’s birthday came and went. No returns = success! A quiet celebration and she had lots of cards. My son’s b’day up next then our anniversary next week. Then a brief respite until my b’day. Can you guess when?
Lots of other things happening recently also. New Supreme Court nominee, GM on the brink but has a path forward. Whew – that was close. On the world political stage, North Korea has stepped up their game. Insert your headlines <here> and <here>.

Anyway, a light (not, lite Thank You) snack for the beast.
