Learning to Use a Computer

Guest post from: Joe Castro

My mom only learned how to use a computer recently, so I was shocked when she started recommending all these websites to me. Since she retired last year, I encouraged her to take a computer literacy course because I thought it would be nice for her to learn. My sister and I figured that she would learn the basics, but we never thought she would start doing all of her shopping and banking online too. The other day I went to her place to visit and she recommended I go to and change from cable to satellite TV. She said she was researching it and found that I could get a great deal. Then, she pulled out a box full of gifts she bought me online at a discount. I got a great pair of shoes and a dress out of it, and it wasn’t even a special occasion! I am so proud of her for learning a new skill, and really embracing it. It is so nice to see her branch out, and the fact that she is buying me gifts is just an added perk.

Time for some color

The weather is getting warmer down here, and I have lost a ton of weight.  I think it might be time for me to get some sun tanned in.  I am whiter than a sheet and well...that just looks kinda funny down here in FL


I kinda forgot about this blog, with everything that has been going on in my life.  I think I originally created this in case I lost my original blog..which just so happens.  I did.  I had totally forgotten about this one.

I'm glad this one is here, and I will remember to blog once or twice a week to keep it alive and active.
