Please read the comments before downloading todays free software. This is the first time I have EVER been unsure of the software at this site. It sounds to me as if you need to be quite computer savy and if you are-great-go for it!

Finally got my computer back from the shop. While they had it, they managed to wipe my hard drive and totally screw it up. Thankfully they gave me a new case with motherboard (yes, it got fried) and hard drive, etc. I only took it in cuz the button to turn it on was loose!
The big news is above: Giveaway of the Day! It is such a great website I just HAD to share it. Every night at midnight they give away fresh new software and also a game (if you are into games). They also have freeware galore. The only catch is, that you have to download it within 24 hours and install it before times up. No biggy for the software they offer. This is a really great site!

Internet scams abound-our latest escapade
Here is the latest internet scam I want to share so that nobody else (well, I didn't get taken, but could have) gets caught up:
We were selling something online and I know many of my crochet friends make lovely things and sell online. Yesterday we got a cashiers check in the mail to the amount of $5000! For something that we were asking only $300 for. Well, of course that sent up a flag and we contacted the bank and verified that indeed it was a fraudulent check. But had we not, we could have been out $4700 AND had our funds frozen at our local bank for maybe months! Here is the copy of (most, I left our name out) of the email the person sent after we told her/him (?) that we got the check in the mail:

Just had to share this with anyone who may be selling online, we happened to use US Garage Sales.com I think, but I imagine any selling/auction site could be hit by people like this. Since they are out of the US it is hard to bring bear charges especially if you don't actually lose any money. It is times like this I wish I had many blogs to post this on. Suffice it to say I will share this with my Groups!
