Michigan Flower Farm Newsletter - Happy Groundhog Day!


Happy Groundhog Day! We are soooo close to spring!
It must have been an easy winter, as I am not ready to do evil, rotten things to Punxsutawney Phil, all of his relatives, friends and/or any and all of his associates this year! For many, many years it has seemed we have limited sunshine over the winter until.....Groundhog Day!  It looks like a better than 50% chance the little devil won't see his shadow tomorrow, which would, according to legend, send us into 6 more weeks of winter. Although we all know (logically) it's pure magical, fun superstition, it's nice to think maybe we'll even have some warm fuzzy feelings towards Punk and his relations this year - until they start decimating our crops, that is . We are all looking forward to spring, no matter how easy the winter has been so far, but I have to say, I will be watching what Punxsutawney Phil does tomorrow! Two fun links:

On another note, everybody please look out for Randsomware, an evil type of malware that encrypts your files and demands payment to get them back. Do a search now and become as educated as you can. We were quite sure we were very protected and we still lost many, many files. It got into every drive hooked to our computer. We lost most all of our 2016 images, which is so sad, but not as sad as losing years upon years of files. Just to reiterate what the experts say, it is important you don't feed these scums by paying them. The best thing you can do is learn from our mistakes; hope for the best, but darn sure prepare for the worst. If you think you would never ever be so ignorant as to click on an infected file, think again. This was a very personal email with a "resume" attached as a Microsoft Word Doc.  So please, please, please, protect yourselves.
On a happy note, it's been feeling like this computer has needed a rebuild for awhile and this didn't happen during our crazy busy time.  Again, and I can't stress this enough, this thing wormed it's way through every single drive hooked to the computer, including our backups. Apparently it can get into your phone, your Cloud..... Do your research now before the proverbial poop hits the fan. Be safe, and then some.
