  • 3/1 2:00am   Hi readers of Norfolknet... With all the talk of ice dams, snow rakes and the hiring of person's to clear off roofs and to handle the destruction of ice dams, I am providing a few images of what a properly snow raked roof and ice dam breaking should look like. A lot of guys are clearing roofs then applying large amounts of salt and other ice melt chemicals which may or may not work but, what definitely does work is to cut channels through the ice at the gutter line every 3 ~ 4 feet as shown. The channels cut have been created very carefully using a hatchet... If one is careful, the roof shingles and gutter are not damaged.
    Hope this information proves helpful.

  • 3/1 1:59am   The PC Handyman is pleased to announce:
    ``Computer Safety'' class ~ Thursday March 26, 7:00 PM
    The threat to your privacy and security that comes with your use of your computer and the internet worsens every day. Malware like the Conficker worm gained national recognition, and people are becoming more and more aware of the increasing risks that online activity poses, although they don't fully understand them. But, we need our computers, so we need to be aware of what's going onout there, and we need to stay protected.
    Virus writing used to be a competitive thing--the most widespread viruses gained attention and bragging rights for the developer. Today, things are different--it's now all about taking your money or stealing your personal information or even your identity.
    So, I have developed a seminar designed to teach you about the various threats that you and your children may encounter through the use of your computer, and how to protect yourself and your PC from them. Some topics to be included:
    -Downloading ``free'' software, music, and games--the risks to your computer and privacy
    -Updates ~ should I or shouldn't I?
    -Protecting your personal information
    -Phishing--what it is and how it can hurt you
    -Online shopping--is it safe?
    -The dangers of social networking sites and how to use them safely
    -Virus protection and other security software--how much do you need, and which are the good ones?
    -Malware (viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, etc.) - what's out there, how do you get infected, and how do you get rid of it
    And much more.
    When: Thursday March 26, at 7:00 PM. About 1 1/2 hours, unless we need to go longer.
    Location: First Universalist Church, 262 Chestnut St., Franklin. Plenty of parking.
    Cost: $30 - prepayment requested because I have to commit to the rental space
    To register: Call 508 346 3502 or email: info@pchman.com
    If you would be interested in other computer courses, I'd like to know that too.

  • 3/1 1:54am   Our two year old black lab, Porter, needs a loving home. Our 7 month old daughter is allergic to Porter and although we have tried to make it work we are left realizing we cannot continue to care for him. Porter is fully house trained, knows basic commands, and is up-to-date with all shots. He is an amazing family dog and wonderful with kids(we also have a 3 and 7 year old). This is one of the hardest things we have had to do, therefore we would want to meet you and make sure you are the right owner for Porter. Please email me at cleonida@bu.edu with the subject line ``Porter."

  • 3/1 1:52am   Due to the severe weather the informational seminar on the Senior Circuit Breaker Tax Credit sponsored by State Representative Richard Ross, originally scheduled for February 10th, was cancelled and has been rescheduled for Friday, March 13th at 12:30 p. m. at the Norfolk Senior Center.
    The Circuit Breaker Tax Credit is for low and moderate income seniors whose real estate tax payments are greater than 10% of their income. Taxpayers must be aged 65 or older, must own or rent in Massachusetts, and there are income limits and assessment restrictions to be eligible.
    Spread the word. All are welcome to attend to see if you or your loved one qualifies, how to apply, how to claim the credit from a previous year, just what benefits you receive, how to calculate real estate tax payments, and much more. Interested parties can also contact the office of Representative Ross at 617-722-1555 for more information about the seminar and this statewide program.
    The Norfolk Senior Center is located at 28 Medway Branch Road and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m. To receive a full schedule of all Senior Center programs and activities call 508-528-4430 or visit the Council on Aging site at bit.ly/XR2e2c

    I'm looking to see if there's any interest in a class like this. It would likely run 1 to 1 1/2 hours, and cost around 30 dollars. It would be held at a local hall most likely on a weekday evening. Additional classes may follow.
    If you would be interested in a course like this, please email info@pchman.com and let me know. If you would be interested in other computer courses, I'd like to know that too.

  • 2/5 10:50am   There is a lot of junk mail being sent to addresses that have appared on Norfolknet, so I've turned off all box###@norfolknet relays. It's hitting all the norfolknet.com post-to addresses, too. Turning off the realays won't help those being spammed directly because they've already harvested the addresses from the pages. The emails are coming from machines all over the world, so I suspect they've been infected by a virus that turns them into spammer bots. The "From" senders are just as much a victim as the recipients.
    Needless to say this is all very frustrating, and I apologize to everyone. One more nail in the coffin of email, I guess.

  • 1/19 9:12pm   For JPB: Right you are, all lives matter. Some of your post was missing (as was part of mine re our blue state), but I wanted to mention that the group for whom black lives matter LEAST is apparently African Americans, as 93% of black deaths from murder are at the hands of other blacks according to the DOJ in 2007, which was the first statistic I found. The 8th cause of death among black Americans is from homicide according to the CDC (I did not continue wading through the many pages to get the dates or other details), if they can be believed.

  • 1/19 8:57pm   Is your dog bored at home? Leashrly Life has the solution. Let us take your pet out for a hiking excursion!
    The benefits of hiking with your dog are immeasurable. Hiking can be great therapy for a dog that is exhibiting boredom-based behavior at home such as shoe, rug or furniture chewing, lawn digging, or gratuitous barking. Hiking is a great way to get rid of this boredom!! If your dog is sleeping all day, a hike might just be the activity needed to perk him up and run off pent up energy.
    Even the toughest four-legged couch potato loves to get outside for much needed exercise. Dogs love variety ~ new scents to smell and investigate; rolling hills to race up and down; and grass, dirt or mulch to walk on instead of cement (especially now that the colder months can take a toll on their little paws). Just like us, dogs need stimulation and a little excitement. A hike for your dog will give him a mini vacation from his daily routine.
    When you get home, you'll notice the sparkle in his eyes after he returns from a place with lots of interesting sights, smells and things to do. He will love you even more for it!! Remember, a tired dog is a good dog -- and hiking is great exercise for pets! Call us today to schedule your pet's hike at 781-241-2083 or email lisa@leashrlylife.com. Please leave us your phone number if you email us. You can also visit us online at www.leashrlylife.com.

  • 1/19 8:51pm   Open Burning for the Commonwealth will start on Thursday, January 15th and conclude on May 1st. To obtain a Permit, any resident can stop at the Public Safety Complex, 117 Main Street, at anytime to file. All filing will be a hard copy format, as the Department was forced to suspend on-line filing due to software issues. We apologize for any inconvenience.
    There is no charge for the Permit.
    Basic points to remember are: residents seeking to burn must contact the Communications Center at 508-528-3207 to determine if open burning is approved for the day; approval for open burning comes to the fire service from the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and open burning may be done between 10AM and must be extinguished by 4PM.
    Please remember that only brush may be burned. Leaves, grass, construction debris, tires, trash, stumps or hay are not permitted to be burned by the DEP regulations.
    If any resident or property owner has any questions, please contact us at 508-528-3207 and ask to speak with the on-duty fire officer or myself.

    FREE Gordon Laughead Upright Piano

    Piano needs tuning but is otherwise in great shape. This is a very well built piano from a top-of-the-line manufacturer. Piano must be picked up at residence.

    A Google search revealed the following:

    "The G. Laughhead brand has been compared to some of the finest spinet-style pianos; very reliable and durable.

    The Gordon Laughead Piano Co. was established in Michigan, in 1948. They entered the piano manufacturing business much later than others; however, the instruments are of a very high caliber. This piano has a very pleasant tone quality and the key/action mechanism is as smooth as virtually any other 36" scale piano.
