So now I know how it is to be hijacked! Not nice when the blog sends out spam comments for a chinese porno site without me knowing it. Well it wouldn´t be especially nice even if I did know it to be honest :-) :-) :-) It all started out with a spam in chinese that I translated on Google. It was mostly about peace and serenity so I didn´t care to remove it. That was really stupid. Suddenly I had over sixty spam comments all over my blog!! It took me over three hours to remove them all. I do hope I did remove them anyway. So if anyone of You get those kind of comments from my blog, delete them fast and let me know. Because then I´ll delete the whole blog.



When we were down by the creek I found this track. I´m pretty sure it´s from a wild mink. They shouldn´t be here to be honest, they do come from north America but escaped from fur farms and can now be found all over the country. They are aggressive little  creatures and I and my dogs has been chased away from the creek by them :-) :-)

Most probably It wanted to catch the maker of these tracks, I think it is a mouse that has made them.


I´ve already started up a new one that I will use then. But if nothing happens it will rest untill I filled the space in this one. After deleting over two months of blogs, I´ll have plenty of extra space here though :-) :-)


Can You see the cattle in the background? They are Highland cattle and stays outside all winter. All other kinds has to be indoors during winter, but these can take anything.

Now it´s only two weeks left until my surgery. Time just flies! But I´ll travel to Skövde already on Thursday for the last check with the doctor before the surgery. So with a bit of luck I´ll take some photos from there. Skövde is a good place to live in, but it´s actully rather uggly compared with the rest of the towns in this county. During the sixties and seventies they tore down most of the old houses, so there are lots of brick and concrete buildings there.





Now it´s time for a cup of tea (or a pot to be honest :-) ) and the fire is burning in the stove. My dogs are all sleeping in my bed and the cats downstairs near the stove. Let us all now hope that none of You´ll get porno commants from me :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

They send only one time because many of us like to read who else comments so we click the box that sends directly to our email when someone writes here. Sometimes that's how I get back to you so quickly. I see the flashing light on my toolbar and click to see who wrote something. If you are asking me a question then I can click on it and go to your blog page immediately. I also catch the spammers that way too. Sorry you had to go to all that trouble. Well now, we are on a surgery countdown. You'll have to tell us your blogging plans in the next post. Are you not going to blog at all in recovery? I would think you would need something to do. Enjoy your tea!

Hi Joyce!
I hope it´s fixed anyway :-)

Even more snow! I think You already have passed us in how much snow that has fallen :-) I hope the repair man comes soon! It´s a bit annoying not to be able to do what one usually does, but sometimes it´s quite nice to be forced to stay home :-)

Poor Teddy! Since she doesn´t like deep snow either I sure hope she can go to the park soon!
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Z&M!
I have it the same way, but I was stupid enough to just delete the comments from my mail in the beginning. I mean they were about peace and serenity :-) :-) But now I´ve learned a lesson!

Oh I´ll keep on blogging :-) It´s just the first week that I can´t write any blog since I´m in hospital then. But as soon as I come home I´ll start again :-) I have at least three months of nothing else to do :-) :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

I cannot imagine another snowstorm right on top of the last one for Jaz and those poor folk who are going through the worst of it.. We are expecting rain tomorrow.

Poor Howard. When getting ready to paint, he stacked all of the moving blankets (large very thick padded blankets) out by the shed and when the rain came, it soaked them. There were eight of them and they were so heavy. He just discovered them this morning. So...we have those huge pads all over the back yard, and driveway. I should have taken a picture. :)
Take care, stay warm and enjoy that cup of tea!
:) Mona
p.s. Thank you for that very nice comment on my blog about the angel that was sent to me. It still hurts to think that all this time I never saw it. I wish I could give her a hug. Such a dear thing to go unnoticed!!

Hi Mona!
I heard that there will come more snow in those areas. I can imagine that many now have no power. I do hope they have any other means to keep warm!

Poor Howard :-) :-) But I would probably have done just the same :-) Well, soner or later they´ll dry up :-)
Have a great day now!

Well I´m not so sure that I would call it funny :-) :-) At least not while I had to go through all comments ever done on this blog :-) :-). I´m pretty sure it will be ok with my surgery, it´s the second time I´m doing that. So thank You!
Have a great day now and welcome back!!

Oh Christer I'm sorry to hear about the porn thing . It happened to me too on my blog about child abuse and also my blog where I post about birth , pregnancy etc.
It made no sence to me why they'd bother commenting in chinese though lol I had to put it thru the translator to find out it was all about porn !
I look forward to your pics from the city too . We live in a nice city as far as cities go , quiet etc. but like you mentioned some people decided to tear down many of our historic buildings in the 60's & 70's . Of course they now all whine about it because mostly they realize the buildngs would be money makers now .
what I don't like about the city is when the snow melts here it does become so so dirty because here they sand / salt the roads so much that come a thaw or spring it is just gross . dirt in the country is clean where as in the city dirt is dirty ;-)
your pics really lift me up so much I so long to be in the woods not in the city .
anyway I'm happy you got through the week ok .

Hi Rox!
It´s really annoying! But in these comments there also were words in englisg, so it was impossible to misunderstand what it was all about.

I think that many cities during that time tore down lots of old houses. Many were in really bad shape, but they tore down good houses too just to get rid of them. In Skövde they really tore down most houses and the oldest house left burned down a couple of years ago. Thankfully the towns around were more careful with their old houses.

Snow in cities is nothing to long for. In comparesence this snow out here is wonderful :-) I´ll try to remember my camera tomorrow and take some photos.
Have a great day now!
Christer.
