Hacked, Hijacked and Back

My entire website totally disappeared! I’ve been having trouble with posting to my blog but this was something new. I contacted the website host and I will spare you a full-on rant about how completely useless the “Help Desk” experts are.  After a slew of very unsatisfactory and confusing emails—  do you not understand, the website I am paying you to host, no longer exists? — I sent a desperation plea to Holly Knott, the site designer. Help! I’ve been ghosted!

Within 30 minutes she returned my email and discovered, my website had been hacked and she told me what to say to the host company.  Why couldn’t those experts figure this out? It’s a mystery. The good news is Lunarpages did manage to restore my website and contents and I am back up and running. 

 

I’ve been walking around Longwood Gardens a lot. The tulips have come and gone and most of the trilliums have faded. I was thrilled to see these Lady Slipper orchids for the first time. When you look closely in the wooded areas, there are treasures to be found. 

 

 

Speaking of trilliums, I loved this book with references to trilliums and a quilt figures into the story as well. The setting is near Buchanan, Virginia, along the Blue Ridge Parkway, an area I know well.  I still have a few miles to hike on the Appalachian Trail in that section. I could relate to the main character and her struggle to know her place in the world. The story begins with Suzanne driving on the Parkway and she sees a lost child emerge from the woods, starved, ill, and alone. Suzanne rushes her to the hospital,  a mystery must be solved and Suzanne’s life changes forever — in a good way. 

So this is just a quick post to say, Hi! It’s been a while. Hopefully I’m back to stay.

    Ooooh, I love those yellow lady slippers. Was actually looking at a wildflower seed catalog contemplating purchasing some pink lady slipper seeds but it seems they are uber particular about growing and germinating conditions. Of course Longwood succeeded!

  3. Oh my gosh that books sounds great! Sorry to hear about the website…….ugh computers!
