Thanks to Dawn and Perpetua for checking the blog.
Apparently there is a little bug or nasty program on my computer. It doesn't affect the blog. Only I can see the little ads. I can put up with that until Joe can find the solution. In the meantime I am being bombarded with ads!
My advice is not to try to download something from the net unless you really know what you are doing. Somehow I managed to download something that I didn't realize.
Oh well......on to better days. Joe didn't even laugh at me for getting myself in this mess.
No more downloads for me.
Thanks for your help.
