I am Betty- like her I struggle to use the latest in electronic gadgets. I don't have a cell phone so I don't have to worry about text messaging, but I do have a digital camera that I can't fully operate after a year's ownership and for the life of me I can't operate the TV remote to watch a DVD. I can reset my digital clock after a power failure however and I can also program the functions on my electric range.
What else can I do? I can change a flat tire, check the oil level in my car and top up if needed, almost balance my chequebook, operate the snowblower, cook a great meal, maintain an awesome garden, drive a tractor, sew a fine seam, knit, play drums, organize a charity walk, find time to play every day, find time to read...So if I never fully understand how to operate the camera the world will still turn on its axis and all will be good in my life. New and improved gadgets will just have to find another home....MJ
