Computers are just so handy. Besides playing Solitaire, they are useful. I needed to see how to do a knitting stitch for a project that I am making. I went to Google and put in my question. I followed the trail and I was able to see someone doing the stitch and talking me through it. It was so easy. Even when we encouraged the kids to look it up in Compton's Encyclopedia , we couldn't get this same hands on experience. Anyone who still doesn't use a computer has cut themselves off from a whole learning world. I do probably spend too much time "learning" stuff on my iPad. There is so much I need help with, and so much out in the world to learn, that I can't help myself. I use it for recipes, I used it for knitting questions, I keep in touch with kids and grandkids,friends. I check the contents of Cricket's dog food. ( She likes the worse dog food on the market. And I give it to her because she eats it) I have used the internet to find out what questions to ask on an interview,what a holiday means,what the weather is in Colorado. Where else can you sit in your jammies and learn all of this useful info. Now if I can just figure out how to send an attachment....

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
