A word about Wi-Fi

Sunday, May 31, 2015

First of all, we use it. All the Time. Everywhere. "Plugged in", "Connected", if we're not using 4G we're using Wi-Fi.  Chances are very good you're using Wi-Fi to read this.

By accessing the Internet, Wi-Fi makes it easy for us to keep in touch with current events, friends,and families. Work becomes more flexible. Entertainment is available at a touch of a screen.

What would you like to know?

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I am told that owls are wise. This Barred Owl was right outside my window at the bird feeder Saturday. I wish he (she?) would tell me what to include in my website and on my Facebook page. That has been my winter project - the excellent people at Studio-N in Peterborough have been bringing my website up to date, and I have been learning to communicate through Facebook. Read more
