Folk of my age - in fact anyone who is retired - should make themselves computer literate. I have so many friends who say they just can't be bothered and what on earth would they use it for.
I say here and now that I have been without Broadband for most of the day today. Don't ask me why - I pressed various buttons and got various questions on the screen, most of which I couldn't answer. Finally, in desperation, I switched off and managed without all day. All I can say is that I felt bereft without the communication I get from blogging. Virtual friends become an important part of life, particularly on days like today when the weather is freezing and there are frequent snow showers. And I had no idea who had e mailed me because I couldn't access my e mails.
Now Broadband is working again - so hello everyone. I'm back chatting to all and sundry.
