In case you hadn't noticed, most of our lives have changed, thanks to the Internet. Here is one of my biggest gripes.

Because I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time working (playing) on my computer, some of my friends and relatives tend to ask me for help when they have problems.  My standard answer for years has been "do you have a 12-year-old in your neighborhood?"

But lately, it seems the age of computer wisdom has dropped.

So my general advice is . . always ask someone much younger for help.

Happy Sunday!


  1. We all have our own life exerience and none of these whizz kids will know the warmth from a box of keypunch cards burning in a wood stove during an Alaska winter.

  2. Yep. I catch every error after I've posted. I pity the first people who read my blog. I usually go back and correct the worst of the typos.

  3. When our son comes visiting, usually for a home cooked meal, I always have a few computer questions for him.

  4. Young or old, we face a common foe. it seems the computer spell check programs are becoming more aggressive in spelling for us, whether it is the word we choose or not!

  5. Yeah - I make my dad ask my nephew for advice now :)
