A book seach returns crazy results

When I was a child I loved spending time at my Grandma & Grandpa's house. She always had great food, cartoon network, a computer, a horse and so many books. One that I recently remembered was called Jelly Beans for Breakfast. Since I have two girls and I remember two girls in the book jumping on beds I thought it would be a great book for the girls.
I searched online to see if anyone had theirs (Amazon, Ebay, you know) and to my amazement it goes for
I immediately called Grandma to see if she still had the beloved book. It has long since been bought at a garage sale or sent to Salvation Army.
I have to wonder if any of those books is mine from years ago!

You have....been hacked

Working from home has its perks, definitely. But a drawback to working online is the risk of getting a computer virus that is not only sneaky, but it keeps putting new viruses on your computer. The ones I got completely took over my anti virus software (AVG), opening trojans every few clicks I guess. This one takes over my browser and no matter where I click, I end up redirected to some spam site which I am sure downloads more onto my computer. I have run every program that I know and recently discovered where someone is actually taking me through a step by step process to remove the hack.

We decided that this was the end of the PC era for our family. I am going to leave this computer for Lily to play her games on and we are upgrading to a MAC...they say once you go MAC you never go BACK
