Hi all - it's me, back again from the computer-less abyss - thanks be to #2 son and his computer wizardry. Apparently my hard drive fried, for reasons only known to itself, and left me high and dry. He has installed a new hard drive and is now hard at work re-installing the rest of my programs. He kindly loaned me the use of his notebook until we can get together and he can return mine.
I've been curious about using a laptop/notebook and have decided that they really aren't for me, at least not for the long haul. It's fun to experiment with this little thing but I find the mouse being at the base of the keyboard to be beyond frustrating. I was a secretary and spent years typing and can't get my head around the keyboard not being at the bottom edge. I know - I need to get with the times!
Anyway, I'm back in a limited way. There won't be any pictures for another couple of weeks and you'll just have to put up with my mumblings. Poor you!!
