Due to technical and life issues beyond my control...
Some of my readers are aware of my recent caregiving duties for my mother. She has not had a good year in terms of health and I as the sole daughter have had my hands full.
Without notice to me, Google has also disabled one of my personal Gmail accounts. I have been noticing a large...no, make that HUGE, (LOL - those of us blessed with these repulsive spams are all too aware of that descriptive word) amounts of spam. In Gmail, there is a button to report spam which I have religiously done. Maybe the reason for the shut-down, but it would have been nice to have been alerted first.
Yesterday, I freaked out when I saw the disabled message when attempting to access my other email account, and I decided to temporarily shut off TT as well, as a safety measure. I have no idea if Google will decide to disable this blog as well. So far, my cowtownpattie address has been working, though it too has had a rash of spam.
Since my Google Adsense account was tied to the disabled Gmail account, I said to hell with the adsense crap. Besides, in all of nearly a year, I earned about $28.00.
Decided to tell Adsense to send their mouths way down south and kiss my hiney good-bye.
Thank you to all my friends (Tod, Joared, Hokule'a, Bill) who sent emails asking about the blog. I love ya all.
