A Message to My Readers

on July 2, 2020

A few weeks ago I realized that my computer, which I have been using for a long time, has now changed its formats. But I was very annoyed about the change because the first format had been hard enough for me, and I wasn’t ready to struggle with a new one. Already, I couldn’t remember some days where I had left my keys. But what was always much worse for me was forgetting how to spell words or how to operate my computer. In addition when I am writing some times I often forget the words I have just written and then repeat them on the same page.

Fortunately, the producers of my machine updated their product a few weeks ago, and the new one is much better than the old one. Now I  see messages I never saw before because I wasn’t smart enough to understnd instructions. And all the written messages I see now are easy to understand. They provide information I couldn’t find before or that I didn’t even know existed. My only recent problem was trying to sign in on my cumputer correctly everyday. I kept getting responses that told me I had written the wrong name and would have to correct it in order to use the machine. So I would try again and again, still be unsuccessful and ready to scream.  But finally I received from my son a properly presented version of my name that I can just tap and the machine opens it imediently.  

Now I see all the comments sent to me by my readers that I missed before, and I would love to respond to all of them . But since it is still likely that I will receive more old messages for me to answer, and many of them will no longer be relevant, I will skip them this time and hope you understand. But in the future I promise to do a much better job of responding to everyone who contacts me with questions or comments, and at very least I will say thanks to anyone who sends me praise.
