Just a Hello

Hello everyone! It is so odd to not be designing, but I have to admit, some of the extra free time is heaven sent. I just installed Photoshop CS5. It's just the trial version and I have to decide soon whether to purchase it or not. To be honest, I'm not exactly thrilled with it. My system is blazing fast with tons of horsepower and almost the max RAM's painfully slow. What am I doing wrong?

A mother duck decided to nest in our backyard. There are seven eggs in her nest and my kids check up on the momma and babies each morning and evening. She's not afraid of them either. She just looks up at them when they come by but basically ignores them as they get closer and yell 'hi!' and other silliness.
