Have you defragged lately? That can help.

Can you add two more gigs of memory? I read years ago that having memory in multiples of four works better, although I can't remember why.

I'm not finding Windows 10 slow at all, but I just started using it on the new laptop.
Another problem may be too many programs running in background. Go to your start menu and see what you have checked. Type msconfig in the search box and uncheck any programs you do not want running.

Have a fun and safe rest of your trip, CG!

Yes, you are! Sounds like that will be an amazing view.

What are you doing?

DH has whatever sleeping sickness I suffered from a few days ago. He had to take the day off work. I'm still a bit groggy myself, but managed to unload my travel purse and reload my regular purse. Travel is getting hard on us middle-agers!

Looking forward to our "fishinar" tonight. It's a webinar that goes over the more obscure fish and other sealife of Cozumel. We're pretty good with identifying the usual suspects, so this should be fun.

I have just finished making some sweets for my brother - toasted macadamia nuts that I then coat in plain choc. They have now set so packing them into a decorative box for him.

Considered it. The expats are mostly a bit, um, shall we say "eccentric". And Beagle despises water.

Thanks, menumaker! If you do have the time to keep us updated, perhaps you could follow Princess Fiona's and bethzaring's leads and start a thread dedicated to your new home. It would make a nice record of the project for you; and if you're posting pics, you can always look back to "remember when".

Thanks, Cheryl. Us old buzzards landed at home about 9:00 PM. Maybe an hour later, Himself and I were listening to three! Great Horned Owls hooting up a storm. They had to be just at the back edge of our yard from the sound of it - maybe 100-150 feet from our house!

When we called Loverly to let her know we made it home safely, she told us she put in an extra hour at work tonight because she knew she was coming home to an empty house. When I said we'd be back later this year she said "don't make it take too long". Aw, our daughter misses us!!! I guess Himself and I had really better get working on this place so we can move back and make someone happy.
