We're Baaaaaack

We are back in business... kind of.

Our new computer is an Apple and the learning curve for using it is STEEEEEEP!  I feel like a 97 year-old grandma trying to figure it out.  Luckily there is youtube and youtube has tutorials for everything.  The trick is finding a tutorial that is dumbed-down enough so I can follow it.  I read that Steve Jobs once suggested Bill Gates should have done more LSD in the 60's... that way Microsoft would be more creative.  I say Steve Jobs did a little too much LSD.  I'm lost.

So, since I'm still learning how to upload pictures and how to cut and paste (that's right folks, "control X" and "control V" don't work on a Mac), I'll leave you with some family pictures that Alyson Keeley took for us back in July.

Ray calls it "The Vulcan Hold."  I should say called.  Levin's too big for such nonsense now.

Have you figured out that it's "apple/command x" and "apple/command v"? I get so confused using a PC now. I have to remember to go three keys over to get any shortcuts to work. Good luck on the learning curve. When my parents switched to a Mac my dad was mad because everything was so simple. He was just trying to over-think things that are intuitive (once you catch on).

So glad you are back! And so excited to hear about your new mac. Mike says I need to attend AA meetings (Apple annoymous), he says I'm addicted to Apple products. He's right.

OH! These pictures are soooo good. What a handsome family. It's so fun to see them.

I'm so glad you're back.

The mouse. Use the mouse. I know you've been trying to get me to use shortcuts for a long time, but the mouse works on both computers :) You just click it. I can write out a tutorial if you want :)
