Welcome to the NEW and Improved Wine Dine With Us!

ex malo bonum”

Out of evil comes good. The Wine Dine With Us blog is proof of that. If you tried to visit our site in late September, you would have received a message that you were about to enter a “reported attack page.” Hackers had gotten into our blog and inserted malicious code, which led to the site being blacklisted by Google. We fixed it once, only to find the same problem a few days later. Again we fixed it, this time to find that our home page displayed posts from 2010, as if the past two years of blogging had vanished!

I had been longing and advocating for a new look and feel for a year already and the hacking incident, as awful as it was for us, ended up being the impetus to start over. A new WordPress theme, a whole new look, and new ways to connect with you, our readers. Thank you to all of our readers who provided moral support during the past two months!  And a big thank you to Joseph and Becki of JMA Web Consulting for their work on coding and designing the new WDWU. Welcome back!!!
