    I'll be happy to help..

    Is it the autocorrect thing that is "outguessing" you? If so, it probably can be turned off from settings somewhere.

    It sounds like an impressive piece of electronics, Chris! I just have a laptop and my backup little notebook, both several years old. I can get YouTube and do homework (transferred through a flash drive), so I'm cool. But if you can write on the screen with a stylus, that's really tantalizing! We do proofreading with a stylus at work, but my work computer is too old to adapt to that, so I have to use the Adobe edit feature and try to manipulate the mouse. Very much more frustrating than being able to circle the text with a hand motion and a "pencil." I'm officially jealous of you.

    To make me even more jealous: I have a work buddy who has an electronic pad like yours (though an Apple brand, I think). He is a singer and just calls up a piano keyboard to find his note when he wants to practice.

    Dont be too jealous. I dont have a smart phone, my Samsung doesnt work except in WiFi, and it is only the $179 version. I got it cause I travel alot and if you are on a motorcycle near the great plains or on the front range of the Rockies, you can pull into a Starbucks, McDonalds or library and check the weather radar loop for bad weather. Plus send an e-mail or two which I can also do with my semi smart phone too if I have coverage. But the Samsung might be fun at skating events....too bad I cant post pics here but I can put them on my website and post a link for nats and worlds....no promises but we shall see how far I get through the 244 page owners manual before Omaha...

    Oh, how stunning. Thanks so much for showing us those photos.

    Being surrounded by such grandeur must do things to one's soul.

    Yes, a good way of putting it. I lived (existed) in Illinois for 40 years....now its payback time.
    Every year when I go back to Oshkosh Wisconsin for the Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in, I am sick for about
    two days due to the heat and humidity....then I am ok.
