New kid on the Blog

Several years ago, the library near me offered free Senior Citizen computer training. I attended. This was the first time I had even touched a computer. After completing the course, still did not think I wanted a computer. Needless-to-say, three years ago, I relented and bought one. I am enjoying it very much, but causes me much frustration. There is so much good information available for us, as well as, not so good. It took me a longtime to figure out how to turn it on and off.

NOW, cannot believe I am attempting to post a blog that is completely a walk in the dark. I do so enjoy other blogs and will do my best to master this. In order to share pictures with you, I will have to purchase a digital camera. Surely, I can take pictures, but you may never see them. Trust I find the technical ability to use it on the computer.



Thought for the day:
In the 1930's-----


Milk (qt) 10 cents

Eggs (doz) 29 cents

Coffee (lb) 26 cents

Count your blessings!

Welcome and good luck with it all! :) You are an inspiration to others. My grandmother (77) just got her first computer. Unfortunately they have had major technical difficulties getting wireless Internet up and running, so for now she is mostly playing solitaire on it, hee hee! I do hope she will stop over and read my family's blogs once she gets going, I think she will really enjoy them.

Hi, and have fun! My mother-in-law is 83 and just got a digital camera about 6 months ago - it took a little over-the-phone (she lives in California and we live in Utah) instruction to get her to be able to get the pictures off the camera and posted to an online photo album, but now she's an old pro at it - I'm sure you'll have it down in no time!

Welcome to blogland. I totally know what you mean about computers - they have a mind of their own and they do NOT always cooperate! I have learned a ton from blogging, though! Hope you have fun with it!

Welcome to blogland! You are going to find it more fun than you ever imagined, and your first post is wonderful!

In fact, I'm going to use you as an example and hopefully an inspiration to my 84 year old Mother, who seems to be allergic to computers!

It is wonderful to have you with us,and I look forward to reading more about your garden, and your life!

Welcome to blogging! You have such a good start. I love the background and header - so pretty!

Amazing prices you listed. I wonder what people will think of our current prices in generations to come?
