Reading Recommendations: The Pecan Tree, Jane Manaster Travel anywhere in the southern United States today, and you will find pecan trees, either growing wild in the fertile flood plains of streams and rivers, or cultivated

Viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits and bots are all part of a class of software called malware. Malware is short for malicious software, specifically designed to damage, disrupt, steal, or generally inflict some other “bad” or
illegitimate action on data, hosts, or networks. Malware is not defective software, which may have errors or bugs, but is intended for legitimate purposes

A Look Through Lindy's Window

Don’t think for a minute animals don’t understand not only words but actions because I thought I was going to have to sedate Patty Wagon, put him in restraints, wrap him in a blanket and wait to revive him half way to our destination when we were readying for our trip to the coast two days before Christmas!

Notes from the Spring Creek Arts Guild

I consider myself to be a geography nerd and people who know me well would agree with that assessment. One day I saw an article that started with the question, “which is further west, Reno, Nevada or Los Angeles, California?” Well, Nevada is between here and California, so it makes sense that Reno is east of Los Angeles
