I appreciate everybody’s advice on the computer issues and want you to know that I’ve read all the comments and took them into consideration.
I will be switching to a new operating system week after next. Why wait so long? Because I’m picking up my mother at the airport a little later and she’ll be here for a week to visit. I haven’t seen her in 6 months and I seriously doubt I’m going to have a lot of extra computer time.
Not only are we going to be catching up, but she’s into her genealogy stuff and her research has showed that her side of the family is originally from this area back in the early to mid 1800s (no, I didn’t know that when I moved here) so she’s going to be wanting to be ‘getting back to her roots’ so to speak.
But again, I will be heeding the advice that was given and I do thank you for taking the time and effort to pass it on. I may be contacting some of you via email for help or clarification – I hope you don’t mind.
