Dear Readers, or is the correct term "Followers"?
I have been experiencing considerable difficulties with my computer and the XP operating system which is no longer supported by Microsoft, so I have asked Nathaniel, my geru from the nearest town of Horncastle to add extra RAM to my desk top and upgrade the system to Windows 8.1
However, this is proving to be a long-winded task, with many pitfalls along the way. For example: this morning I had to spend 45 minutes struggling to communicate with a BT problem-solver in India, because for the first time ever I was suddenly asked to provide a password before I could send emails from Outlook Express, another "out-of-date" program. My dear husband, who set up this equipment for me, had failed to tell me the password that he had chosen when he created my email account over 10 years ago. It turned out to be his mother's maiden name, so it was a pity I didn't think to try that.
But let me move on - those of you who know me well will appreciate how much I value the facilities of the Internet, and how much I despair at my ignorance, which I'm sure I will sadly never be able to eradicate. I say "thank goodness" for Mike, my webmaster, and for Nathaniel and his patience, and for my very best friend, Tony, my husband who introduced to this facinating product.
I'm quietly very elated to find myself able to communicate with you again in this way, and I hope I can get back into Type Pad again in a few hours time, so that I can share with you a few of my recent experiences, and introduce you to my lastest project.......
Thanks for still being there - love from Barbara
