The Wonders of Modern Science
There was a mini-disaster last night when I accidentally pressed the wrong button and completely lost my Blog List which contained all the favourite sites I like to visit. Dominic sat at his own computer and restored them all for me. It is at times like this that I realise how little I know about the computer world. It is hard for me to get my head round my blog floating in cyber-space - now I have the added problem of my blog list being restored without anyone sitting in MY chair and switching on MY computer. When I think how today's children in school are so computer-literate and I look at my feeble efforts I feel a "senior-moment" coming on. Or - having just read Lucy's comment - I shall change that to "learning opportunity" - it never does to admit to being old. I have just been thinking as I loaded the dish-washer - is there anything that today's children can't do that the previous generation can do? I can't think of a single thing but I am sure we must have grown up doing things that children today don't have to do any more. Can anyone think of anything? In the meantime - Thanks Dominic for giving me a new learning opportunity.
