YAY!! The Warning is Gone!!

That warning, saying that my blog was an attack site, should never have been there to start. Thanks to those of you who braved the warning, clicked the "ignore" button and commented.
Apparently, it was a scam. Some site I had visited (and I know which one) put a cookie on my blog. When I followed the links to the conclusion, it wanted me to pay $100 to get rid of it. I am notoriously cheap, so paying to remove that was not gonna' happen!

I ran virus and malware, but that didn't take care of it, and neither did clearing the cache.  Just now, I thought to delete all the cookies, and just like a snap of the finger, the warning disappeared!! It's too bad I didn't think of that sooner.Thank you for hanging in there.

Work is picking up, now that fall is on the horizon and weddings and parties are once more added to many date books. I am really enjoying my latest job, with Cyndey Davis-English of  English Garden. In October, weddings get very busy with Mel Day of Dogwood Tree Florist.
My creativity gets tweaked (and satisfied) with both of them and I am truly grateful for the opportunities for being surrounded by fresh flowers and also with congenial people!

What are you grateful for today?

I'm so grateful that MTl has been given and 'all clear' at this moment in time.

The site I visited did not place the cookie on purpose; his site had been corrupted too.

I'm grateful that you figured out how to fix the problem.

I'm also grateful the the Internet connects me to interesting people like YOU.

I didn't notice anything on your blog but I just had a blog buddy email me that they got a warning trying to access my blog.
I delete cookies each day but did it again anyway. Hope it works for me too.
Glad you are back in business.

I had to delete my blogroll to get rid of the warning.

I am grateful for the cooler temps. It is nice enough to sit outside on our deck and we enjoy it.

I am always grateful for my family. Where would I be without my sweet husband of almost 60 years. And my 3 grown children and 6 grandchildren.

And that I have my total knee replacement 4 months behind me and I am doing real well.

I just deleted my followers, in the hope that it would delete the malware link in my blog. Please bear with me.

Very sorry to hear you got one of those things. I had one last year but not on my, it tied up my PC so I couldn't run anything until I thought to log onto the grandkids user id and run the cleanups from there. Grrr.

I'm still getting the warning on Chrome, but not on Google or Firefox.
