Robin Williams is selling his Napa estate for a few bucks short of $30 million.
You know, if one considers $100,000 just a few bucks.
The price has actually come down. The actor initially listed his home and vineyard on 640 acres for $35 million in 2012, according to Forbes.
On those 640 acres are fields of olive trees and cabernet sauvignon grapes and a 20,000-square-foot house with five bedrooms and 12 baths. Forbes reports that the house, built from Portuguese limestone, also features an oak-paneled library, a home theater, climate-controlled storage for art and wine, a private tower with a bridge accessible from the master suite, plus outdoor amenities including a 65-foot pool, a horse barn and a spring-fed pond for bass fishing.

A cherry tree adds beauty to your landscape and deliciousness to your dishes. Cherries are quick to produce, setting ripe fruit not long after their blossoms appear, especially in comparison to the other stone fruits, such as peaches, nectarines, plums and apricots. They’re also pretty trees, with clouds of spring blossoms in pink or white, a reddish brown bark, long leaves and great fall foliage color.
There are essentially two types of cherries — sweet and sour. Sweet cherries can be eaten fresh from the tree or used for cooking. Sweet cherries are most commonly grown in the western part of North America, particularly on the West Coast. Sour cherries can be grown throughout most of North America. As their name implies, they aren’t as great for eating fresh, but they are ideal for baking and preserving.

You’ve heard a lot of talk about the importance of backing up your hard drive WHEN something should happen to your computer. There are few things more painful than knowing that all of your precious files have been lost forever. The same holds true for websites. It seems like every day there is a new headline about the latest high profile website crash. Unfortunately, website threats are very real. Backing up your website helps you to safeguard against those threats.
I’ve been preaching this to you all. If you don’t have a backup solution, I have a great system that works online away from your original server. There is a one time $25 setup fee, then you never worry or think about it. Please let me know if you are interested in securing your backups to protect your site.
This article from Hostgator has some good information.
Unfortunately, hackers have become commonplace on the web. While the aim of a hacker may be to steal credit card numbers and other sensitive information, often people hack websites merely to prove themselves or cause trouble. If your website is online, there is always the chance that it may become compromised.
Storing a copy of your files on your computer is a good idea, but should your machine crash, get lost, or fall off a cliff, then your files will be gone with it. Backing up your files remotely is a more practical option in the event that something happens to your machine.
Updates Gone Wrong
Regular updates refer to updated features and increased security, but they don’t always go as planned. This is why WordPress always tells you to perform a backup before updating. Websites have multiple components, including plugins, themes, software, and back-end programming. An awry update to any of these can take an entire website offline for any amount of time.
