      Hello dear ones,
      Gill sent this, about an insidious virus, to me (because i am on her
      allspirit list), and she suggested i send it to all of you as well. I don't
      understand it, but maybe some of you do, and maybe it will be helpful.
      Thanks to Gill.
      Love,
      elaine
