Well, it happens.  I have been hacked.

Some hacker, like an invading, worming demon, took possession of my blog and then with fiendish delight distributed malicious ads via my RSS feedburner.  For what reasons people do this, I do not have a clue – money, control, grins, or the challenge.  For you who were victims of his (or her) ploys, I apologize!  JaysonB, my maharishi for all things related to blogs (and a number of other matters), cleaned up the mess and gave mereHope a bolder and more readable look.  Thank you Jayson.

Now that I am safe and security, updated and improved, I intend to be a bit more regular with postings.  I hope you will stay connected and keep reading and commenting.  Let me know how you like the new look.  Mike
