Virus Appreciation Day

You may not want to appreciate viruses – the physical or the software kind – but they do teach us lessons and keep us on our toes.  Take this day to dedicate it to protecting against viruses, malware, spyware, trojans, etc. – from vaccinations for ourselves to anti-virus software upgrades for our technology – don’t forget to put them on the smart phones and tablets too!
