SUNDAY ANNOUNCEMENTS will return next week, meanwhile …

“The only truly secure system is the one that’s powered off ….”  Gene Spafford [Spaf], American professor of computer science at Purdue University and a computer security expert.

Sunday Announcements will return next week and Tuesday’s post (responses to the last Wednesday Writing Prompt) may go up late. I seem to have two computer viruses – “search any manager” and “Apple wants to make changes” – and unable to remove them myself,  I’m shutting down the computer and taking it to an expert. Back soon
