1. On Saturday, April 11, local storyteller Linda Pearson, will read "Where the Wild Things Are" and other stories at the Kailua-Kona Library. The storytelling, which begins at 10:00am inside the library, will kick-off the start of National Library Week (April 12-18).
Outside on the lanai, the Friends of the Libraries, Kona (FOLK) will be holding a book sale from 9:00am to 1:00pm. A large number of Fiction, Nonfiction and Children's books will be available. Funds raised from sales help to support the needs of the three Kona libraries, as well as community, craft, and reading programs for youth.
Volunteers are always welcome and if you are willing and available, please call 328-0203.
2. Guava Bee didn't buzz around very much last week due to a computer infection. Things have pretty much cleared up but there's still a possibility of a widespread internet infection so just in case you haven't heard about it, or have been experiencing problems with your PC:
- Watch last night's 60 Minutes regarding the Conficker Worm
- Read "The Conficker Worm: What Happens Next" by CBS News
There are many who don't believe that anything major will happen on April 1st (just read the comments after the 60 Minutes video) but no one denies that Conficker has infected millions of computers. I followed the suggestions found in a PC World article (among other remedies) and my computer no longer freezes up with unsolicited web sites popping up in rapid succession. The removal tool I used was McAfee's Stinger.
If your computer seems to be working fine and you don't know what in the world I'm talking about, consider yourself lucky and have a wonderful day! There are so many better things to do than de-worming...anything.
