What an honor!!

I was given this wonderful award by Sarah better known as Craftymoo. As Sarah so eloquently put it on her blog, it is really touching to have your hobby appreciated and acknowledged...Sarah I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Now...the tough task of paying it forward, there are so many blogs that deserve this award, I don't know how to keep it to just 10, but I'll give it a go.....

but's how it works.....

1. One must accept the award

2. Thank the person who gave you the award

3. Add a link to the person who gave you the award

4. Paste the award on your blog

5. Write 10 things about yourself others might not know

6. Pass the award on to 10 others

So, I have done 1-4 now for 5 and 6:

1. I was born and raised on Long Island

2. I used to be on my HS swin and diving teams

3. I've driven cross country twice

4. I have lived in 8 places in my life.

6. I love the library!

7. If I had my college days to re-live I'd become a RN

8. I would love to have my own needlework shop!

9. I'd love to move to Italy!

All my accounts have been hacked

Hi all.....Sometimes I really hate the cyber world, yesterday I was invaded by someone, I assume through my facebook account...they proceeded to get into my email account and completely brought me to my knees. They went so far as to start making harrasing calls to my work # (which was in my email signature)(another thing I have removed)and actually implied that they wanted to extort funds for returning my account to me, by giving me the password....It made me ill!!

They sent out a mass email stating that I was in Europe and in need of money, after being mugged and held at you can imagine this created panic in some folks who are not wise to these internet schemes.

I was able to retrieve my email, however there were some innapropriate posts on here (now removed) if anyone was offended I apologize, I assure you that it was NOT me...I have decided to remove bizeefingers, and will start another blog later today or tomorrow.....

My advice.....change your passwords often, make then obscure enough that they are not figured out easily (even though mine was obscure, they got it) not link your email accounts together (a new lesson for me).... Use different passwords on all accounts (another lesson learned).I was lucky enough to get to my banking websites before they did...I had been having statements emailed, not anymore...going back to good old fashioned paper!! If you are a facebook user...screen your friends carefully and ask questions of those your're not sure of...confirm they really did know you in school etc...

And if you are it!! call your local police dept, most have an internet fraud division.

Please be careful out there, it just stinks that these "geniuses" do not use their talent for greater good!!

Its been fun having this blog and sharing photos of my stitching...I'll return...they wont keep me down!
