Ottawa winter

 View from my mother’s window at dawn and midday.

The beginning of a new year. What will it bring? My resolution: to be still, sometimes. As still as this.

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect
    against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard
    on. Any tips?

    Right now it looks like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Gday! It looks as though we both have a interest for the same thing.
    Your blog, "Blogger: Born to Blog by Beth Kaplan" and
    mine are very similar. Have you ever thought about authoring a guest write-up for a related blog?
    It will certainly help gain publicity to your website
    (my website recieves a lot of targeted traffic). If you are interested,
