This site certainly looks bountiful in information that I can use. I've been using computers for many years, yet I haven't taken the time to learn anything below the surface, so to speak. I have two sons, now 23 and 26, both computer geeks, but they haven't the time (that is, PATIENCE!) to teach me much. I know, they're all like that as teenagers on up. So---having an epiphany that I'm not going to learn it unless I do it on my own, I undertook, this Spring, to delve into the world of learning. My----there IS information out there that I can use, if I just take the time to read, study and apply it. Best of all, I've taken the young person's approach of, "wonder what THIS will do" and not been afraid to click buttons and menu items and experiment. Haven't broken it yet, but skidded close--- LOL

Long intro---I"m 62 and happy that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Thank you one and all for your input to this website!
