For those of you who have expressed your concern, thank you so very, very much. You can have no idea how appreciative and grateful we are that you have continued to offer your support, thoughts and prayers.
I was offline for approximately 36 hours due to a serious attempt to break into the computer. My security program apparently disabled my connection for my protection, and, neo-techie that I am, it took me this long to figure out what the problem was. I have jumped through many hoops and learned a lot more about the inner workings of the various programs involved in the upkeep of this little machine, and I'm back. This connection is almost literally my lifeline, and without it, I have been in rough shape. I'm feeling much better now, though.
Bonnie is well, but no better than before. She, too, is grateful for your support, although it is difficult for her to appreciate it at this time.
I have lately 'come out' to a number of people who have been more than supportive, and since the list is growing and I have begun to lose track, I might as well make it official here on this page. You may, if you wish, continue to address me as 'Mal', for this is how most of you have come to know me, and since the pseudonym was created a little over a year ago, it now fits me like a second skin. However, I wish all of you to know, for the record, that my real name is Walt.
Bonnie is still Bonnie.
Thank you all for everything.
Peace, and may the Creator bless you all.
