    I've just started their free course:
    Introduction to cyber security: stay safe online

    We do so much online these days, we do need to protect ourselves.

    Hope it will help me tighten up my own security

I had already changed addy in CP user last year

    Seems they accepted that straight away over weekend as the link to put new pword was sent there in a couple of minutes

    Does that make sense? Probably not as Im half asleep, been watching winter games

    Whoopsies today -from a plus a couple from the coop.
    [/IMG]

    Hope I've done the picture thing correctly!!
    They seem to keep changing the times at my A, probably to keep us on our toes!
    There were some very worrying people at the veg section, but I snuck in a couple of times!
    Also remembered to separate my whoopsies from my other shop!

    Obviously didn't manage the picture!![IMG][/IMG]
    Trying again! bit blurry, but you get the gist!

    Those knives are on one of those magnetic strips you can attach to the wall and underneath a shelf.

    Whilst it is not the way I choose to store my knives, I think they are out of the way and quite unlikely to cause any real problems

    In the meantime I have had to cancel any idea of going anywhere this morning, next door seem to be having a fence redone, and there is a pneumatic drill going, not sure I trust the workmen, they look a bit shifty, want to make sure no damage is done as they are a bit close to our fence It is rented, and there seems to be a fair bit of work going on, suspect they might be moving out shortly. Enough work going on to make it seem like it will be sold. Slightly annoyed that neither the person that lives there (that I do chat to) or the people that own it (they have our email address and we have theirs) have told us nothing though. I'm nosy that way lol.

    Still, plenty to be done here, might even get the wood chopped up ready for burning off, good excuse to be outside
