Celebrations!!!! And a breaking to breathe!

I am so pleased to report that the horrible cyber criminal blog that "scraped" or copied all of my blog posts whole...including text and photos and replaced all the links with porn and malware links has finally been taken down completely by Google. Woopie!!!!!

I am due to leave for a cruise on Wednesday...part holiday, part perscription from my doctor and allergist to get out on the ocean & breathe deeply. It's the only place I really breathe clearly, and it allows my system to recover and the meds to work again.  Now I can go and truly relax and not worry what I'm coming back to.

Thanks so much for all of the kind comments during this ordeal. Bernideen of Bernideen's Teatime Blog, Judith of Lavender Cottage and Kathy of A Delightsome Life  are also relieved. We have spent a lot of time sharing, encouraging and brain storming ideas for all of us to protect ourselves that I know will be shared over the next few weeks.  Thank you, dear friends.

So...I am taking a blogging break until May 13th when we get home. I hope, Lord willing, to have a Tuesday Cuppa Tea meme here at the Antiques And Teacups blog up that evening, a Monday, but it may not be until Tuesday because from now on I will watermark my photos and that will be another step in the blog process. But enjoy your blog friends and their posts, and take good care of cyberspace until I return.
Love you all, my dear tea friends!


  1. Yay! That is doubly exciting Ruth! I'm so glad you got your blog problem fixed. I'll be curious to know how you did it. And how fun to go on a cruise!
