Don't know why it was off. Maybe I shut it off when I first got my MacBook Pro. Anyway, I like and it is staying on.

I Turned on "Scrolling" "with inertia" on the laptop. It's under System Preferences, Accessibility. It's great for websites. You rapidly move two fingers either up or down on the key pad and the screen goes flying either up or down. It's fun and fast.

Got Yosemite on my laptop yesterday. After it was on I ran Time Machine to do a backup. That took longer than the download and install of Yosemite.

My next door neighbor has a new riding lawn mower with a leaf collection system. Maybe this year I won't get his leaves blowing onto my lawn. He's out there right now sucking up leaves.

The bigger and heavier he gets, the worse it will be for you. Because of my back, my last two grandchildren were only held if I was sitting and someone put them in my lap.

However, this baby sitting/care thing is having a deleterious effect on my back. In other words, not a good thing.
