Stirling made pancakes. I love his pancakes and was delighted that he wanted to make them. He made up a big batch of the dry ingredients and put most of it in a jar in the fridge. I forgot how much of a mess it makes when he makes up the big batch of "pancake mix".

It took me two rounds of hand dish washing. There wasn't room on the dish rack for everything. Lots of the stuff is too big for our small dishwasher. grrr

We are having supper late, 'cause I spent so much time cleaning up, so I could cook. I better not hear about how late supper is...

I haven't had to retype a sentence since I turned it off.

They're all different PF. Good thing Katy had a solution that worked because I wouldn't have been any help. You see, with my ASUS I have two keys I use: There is a "Fn" key a couple to the left of the space bar that enables the function keys at the very top of the keyboard. I have to make sure I tap the correct key to turn the touchpad on and off. Otherwise I can turn off the internet. Or change resolution. Or mess up all kinds of other functions but still not get the touchpad changed. I look at this keyboard a lot! But at least I wouldn't have to drive somewhere to use a mouse. Toshiba didn't make it easy, did they Katy?

My old laptop had a switch. Click left=on, click right=off. So easy...and mistake-proof. I NEED mistake-proof!

I guess I got lucky in that my laptop had a "Synaptics Pointing Device" and I knew exactly where I had seen it. Now I only have to worry about my normal typos. No more jumping cursor to foul things up.

A mouse pad is a cloth covered foam square that a mouse rolls around on.

I disabled the touchpad from my laptop, but it's still very sneaky. It likes to jump up and insert text I'm typing into a place I don't want it, and on frequent occasions, will delete whole paragraphs of reports. I can't trust my laptop, and as I'm not the greatest typist, I have to keep my eye on it constantly.
