Backyard Blackberries And Malware Virus

Hi everyone,

I hope all of you have had a great weekend. Ours was a bit hot. Whew! I know that it isn't nearly as hot here as where some of you are. I pray for you to get rain if you need it and want it. :)

Backyard blackberries.....

The backyard of the house where I grew up was not like most backyards.  It was big. It could have been a great place for a swing set, and playhouse and other fun kids stuff..but....

It was all weeds.  Dad had plowed it up many times with the intent on putting in grass. But there was one BIG problem. A GIANT blackberry bush in the middle of the yard. Now, how could this be a problem you ask? 

Well blackberry bushes don't give in easily. They have an extra-ordinary will to survive.   Dad just could not get it out of the ground. So what happened was, we enjoyed the huge blackberries for many years. And played in the front yard. :)

Also I remember one time that me and a friend went to  pick blackberries in my neighbors backyard.  There was a hornets nest under the bush. I didn't know this and I stepped in the wrong place.Well the hornets didn't like that at all. One flew right into my face and stung me in the eye. Boy, did I yell and run toward my house. My mom had heard me and was out at the back door before I got there.

I don't think I picked berries in their yard again. :)

I should go. Stay safe, oh have you heard about the internet shut down virus?? I don't know much, just that you have go to www.dns-ok.us to make sure your computer will be ok. If you get green in your picture you will be ok I you get red then you will have a problem and I don't know what you can do except call your internet provider. This is real and the FBI are into it.  Hackers are using this virus to mess up computers all over the world. I think people in the east have already had this happen. Be sure to do this before 12 midnight EDT tonight (Sunday). Hope all will be well.

Have a great week. Take care....



  1. I think your Dad is a very wise man keeping the berries,
    I went and checked and mine came up green but how do we know its legit

  2. A checked ours yesterday and it is OK. You would think people would have better things to do than mess up computers for people! I guess it takes all kinds!! :)--Jan

  3. Love that your Dad is keeping the berries. I hope that this internet thing is not awful...I will go check this out- if I can figure out how to do it-xo Diana

  4. I love blackberries! Hornets not so much!

  5. We have several blackberry bushes all along our back yard. Ours aren't quite ready yet, but it looks like we are going to have a lot this year. How painful and scary to get stung in the eye!! I don't think I would have gone back either...


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a wonderful day. :)
