Or you could memorize the number. Himself used to panic when I rattled it off at a snap, even reciting the expiration date and my security code. Had to remind him repeatedly that I log into the account using the number as the I.D. and I pay a number of bills by phone using number/expire/security code. He's finally to the point where he now knows I'm not spending us into the poorhouse!

My laptop has a button beside the power button to turn the touchpad on or off.

I had to go to the diagram of the computer that shows where everything is to find it.

It's not in Control Panel.

No more runaway cursor. Whew!

Password Safe is open source and really strong encryption. I don't trust MS encryption.

Dear Mr. Headache:

Could you please come back to play some other time? I'm a little busy right now playing hostess to Mr. Sore Toe and Ms. Achy Back. Thank you.

Sincerely, CG

At least you can take one pain reliever and get rid of all the pains at the same.

Thanks taxy! I'm thinking I might be low on caffeine. Haven't had any coffee with this hot weather and I've been drinking more plain water than tea. Think I'll load up on ice tea and make myself some mocha lattes. Just have to remember to make lots of extra coffee later. Then I mix some Hershey syrup into the last of the coffee while it's a little warm, pour it into an old glass milk bottle, and keep in the fridge until I want some. Then I pour it over crushed ice, add a little cream and even more milk, and enjoy. Oh that sounds good. Gonna go brew!

Low on caffeine would explain headache.

I read your post CG, and went straight into the kitchen to make myself an ice cafe au lait: double espresso, ice cubes, fill the mug with cold milk. Yum.

Okay, Columbo and the Mrs. showed up today. I about freaked as I was busily cleaning the apartment and had sat down for a break when they called and said they were outside our door. I wasn't even dressed, just had a house dress on. Luckily they are really tired and are going to the motel to sleep. Shrek will meet up with them tomorrow and we'll go to dinner when I get off work.

I still have the kitchen to work on...the place with all the flat surfaces.
