I can still have the mouse if I want it but I think I’m going to like this trackpad. Luckily all my files where there on my external hard drive so I got everything back. Now I have to work out the photo editing.

I have all installed now. The trackpad is up and working. I really miss my iPhotos though. I’m just going to have to download those tutorials.

All these flowers and greenery are classed as weeds where I live. The asparagus fern looks great in a vase but it chokes out all the native undergrowth and is almost impossible to get rid of. The little orange flower... Continue reading

There are 8 different cats that Mabel designed. I think that children could handle this one.

I do. It is a Flora & Fauna protected island. Certain areas of the island are designated nature reserves but all the birds animals and native plants are protected. I don’t know of anywhere else just like this place. Residents put posts on the Facebook page warning motorists to watch out for nestlings in their area or if the big snakes are on the move. it makes for a great community.
