clic a pic to enlarge itThis is it summer is finally here yahoo!
A pretty nice morning but still damp after last night's rain. Soon the sun shone and dried up very nicely. Got a nice walkabout town, and back home. But having an issue with my Mac Book Pro. hmm, the touch pad has a mind of it's own. Now the touch pad on a Mac works wonderful and I love it. So hoped in the car to the Apple store in Waterloo. In a couple of minutes I had help, my Mac was diagnosed and all is working fine , but the touch pad has gone funky. Need a new touch pad. BUT, seeing as my Mac is over 8 years old Apple does not have parts for it anymore. Options. an external I mouse ($79.00) will work or an external touch pad ($179.00) Or I can try to get an aftermarket touch pad on line and have someone install it. (no charge at the Apple store for help) Don't want to spend a lot of money on it just want to be able to used it. So the tech guy at Apple sent me to a computer store and I bought and external wireless mouse for 15 bucks. Works fine now, just much prefer the touch pad. Eventually I will need a new Mac so don't want to put a lot of money into this one. I used a mouse for many years on my pc's but this just works so much nicer and has so many neat features.
That done home for lunch And a walkabout in the woods across the road. As soon as I entered the bush I noticed a whole mess of these Giant Hogweed plants, They look like Queen Anne's lace but are 6 to 8 feet tall. Very toxic , can cause skin blisters. and even temporary or permanent blindness if you get them in you eyes. A very invasive plant they are for more info click HERE .
