We’ve All Heard Of Adware on our Computers, which usually involves a “Trojan Horse” style of “Virus” – but, Now there seems to be a New Threat – RANSOMWARE! – And, Yes, it’s apparently Exactly what it Sounds like – It’s a Ransom Hacking scenario which involves the Hacker Locking the Computers of its Victim – Preventing Access to any of the information unless a Ransom is Paid. Ransomware Malware has been spread through “Malvertising” – which is legitimate-appearing advertising that may be found on legitimate websites unwittingly carrying the advertising without knowing it is a scam.

That Mysterious Rustling in your Attic – or, Bugs on the Windowsills – Could be signs that Winter Pests have decided to call Your House “Home.” – Scott McNeely, of McNeely Pest Control, says the best line of defense against insects like Stink Bugs and Lady Bugs is Sealing. However, you don’t want to actually do the sealing for insects During the Winter in case there happens to be insects in the Wall Voids. He says sealing is better suited for spring, summer and early fall.
The best option now is to react. http://myfox8.com/2015/01/12/how-to-protect-your-home-from-winter-pests/

No One Would Find It Strange for a Dolphin to swim 9 Miles through the Ocean to the Shore, that is Unless that Dolphin is a Former Miami Dolphin Fullback! Rob Konrad actually Fell from his boat, which was running on Auto-Pilot – This allowed for his boat to Continue On Without Him, leaving Rob Stranded. Deciding that he was Not going to Die that day, Rob began Swimming for Shore – and, 16 Hours Later – he Made It to Shore! Sitting next to her husband Monday, Tammy Konrad said he has Always been the Kind of Guy who Never Gives Up!

Cade Pope, a 12-year old NFL fan, sent a letter to the owner of each of the NFL’s 32 teams about two weeks ago, asking for help deciding which team he should become a fan of. He received only ONE Response – as, Panthers owner Jerry Richardson sent Cade a handwritten letter. The letter came with a package containing a replica Panthers helmet signed by star linebacker Luke Kuechly. For what it’s worth, Pope said, “If this is the only team that responds to me, then I’m a Carolina Panthers fan.”
