DumpSave[filename] will save the state of your kernel to a file.
Get[filename] will load this back.  It doesn't save the notebook as
well as you can have the kernel in various different states for the
same notebook.  DumpSave can take some time, Get is usually fairly

So, first time round do...


Next time start at Get.
