    Helping us with our Computer Folly

    I just want to voice a round of THANKS to the members of this forum who patiently help we "techno-peasants" through our computer woes. Some of you must be active users or I.T.!?

    My hubby and I were so frustrated with each other we ended up laughing so hard I almost ***ed my pants as he tried to steer me through photoshop. It's a gift to be able to computer-speak. I used to be able to learn these new things so quick, but I find that's not so as I age.

    You are Angels of the ethenet. LOL

    When I want to scream over computer frustration, I search Youtube. I always find a video how to fix, use, or correct any problem so far.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    YouTube has helped me with a lot of things, from computer related to recently how to siphon without sucking water into my mouth! It's like "the google" - but we have to remember to use them!!!!

    Ethernet = that's the cloth they put over your face before you get ether, right???? And guess what, folks, my son is an IT and guess what else, folks? He talks too fast for me to understand - IT's TF (that's talk fast)!!!!!!!! And I don't use letter words!!!! Don't know what they mean, besides which it would screw up my typing abilities. Edie
    Home is where the rags of your life are turned into quilts, lemons become lemonade and a few extra pounds are simply welcomed as "more of you to love."
    I am so confused. I don't know if I found a rope or lost my horse."
