Hi Everyone,
   I somehow got an email virus that spammed everyone on my contact list.  (I 
suspect I got it from ABC15 when I entered to win an iPad.  It was the last 
thing I did online before bed on Tuesday.)  When I woke up Wednesday, I had 
dozens of bounced emails with the viagra sale link, plus some responses from 
concerned friends.
   Thanks Tim for pointing out the problem quickly, and telling everyone not to 
click on the link.  I imagine you saved a lot of people a lot of trouble.
   I performed the usual cleansing actions and appear to be virus free on my 
desktop, (this computer), but have yet to clean my laptop.  (I need another 
license for that one.)  I think a call to Norton Internet Security with a few 
questions is in order...
