I think

#3 is a flowering quince -- probably from me
#4 is 'may night' or 'bedder blue' salvia -- probably from me

#1 is a pigweed Chenopodium of some sort. Whether it's a weed is up to you - most people would say it is, and I'd say it was a salad green and that you can eat those seeds mixed with rice once they're properly dry.

They're not berries, they're clumps of seeds. And yes, they're edible - the grains of Chenopodium and Amaranth have been used as staple foods for millennia.

Nope, not zure at all. It could very well be a wild grape, but I've never seen one with young leaves like that. (LOL, I ended up buying a spare keyboard, and Apple is going to fix the dead keyboard for me ASAP. I don't know who spilled what where, and I'm not sure I want to....)

I have had that problem more than once with my son and my apple key board. I lost the letter Z and all this Zonal talk on this forum, and having to punch command Z to undo stuff had me all zigged out. I wrote words misspelled and then spell checked it, saved the Z on the corner of my desk top. It got old but I was broke. I am embarrassed to say I did that for 4 months. Sometimes dust and grit will do it too. I find that squirting a air compressor in the cracks will fix it at times. I like their old keyboards better. One could take them apart, dry them out and clean them out a lot better and easier. They were not as pretty and small as the new ones. OOPS I am changing the thread.

No worries - we've more or less id'd everything. The Mac in question for me is a later-model MacBook Pro, and at least it's still under warranty, so Apple pays to fix it. Since this is the fourth repair in as many months, they're actually quite likely to replace the danged thing with a newer model, and if that's what happens, I certainly won't be complaining.

If you thought life was hard without a z, consider the pain in the tookus that it is without an "s", a "d", and a "v" - those are my hotkeys for "save," "place object," and "paste." Not to mention that they appear with rather alarming frequency in many commonly used words....

Oh, and Bali? Your plant #1 is Chenopodium capitatum - Strawberry Blite.

And yet you remain so articulate. LOL.. I am in the market for a new iMac. My capacitors are budging and It does not turn on very well so I just put it to sleep. It is starting to crash a lot. It is 6 years old and this is the first trouble I have had. It has major mother board problems. I am thinking of buying the capacitors and trying to repair it myself since the price to repair it is what it is worth.

LOL, I'm only articulate because I'm working with a secondary rolling silicon USB keyboard that was originally intended for Weenix boxes (and hence has no apple or function keys, dagnabbitall...) So while I do have my missing letters, the functionality of the thing is limited to typing. (Insert picture of me swearing like a disgruntled sailor here - it makes typesetting and layout for my two magazines a bit of a headache....)

You should take a vacation to Ecuador and buy your Mac here, then - they're much cheaper than in the States, although we're on the same dollar. I'm currently coveting the new 1 TB quad-core iMacs with the mega-giganto-screens - as a graphic designer, they seem to have been made with me in mind...
