    I saw you had trouble w/ the computer; losing a post you spent a long time on.

    I don't know too much about computers. Well, they didn't have them when I was born. Didn't have ball point pens either.

    Anyway, Carla nl does know a lot about computers. She said when you spend a long time on a post, the computer sort of forgets about you, and the post gets lost.

    If you know how to paste and cut you can avoid this problem. If you don't know, I can tell you here or maybe someone at your home can show you.

    Instead of typing your post here, type it as tho you were writing a letter. After you've written a few paragraphs move them to "draft". That way, even if it's a long letter, you will never lose more than a few paragraphs.

    When the post is all done, cut and paste it onto the message board.

    No more lost posts!

    Good luck.

    Good idea plus if you type your post up in a word processor and then copy and paste you can use the spell check which seems to be something a lot of us can use these days.

    That's where the tall corn grows!

    Where is winterset? I am more familar w/ the NE part of Iowa since I grew up in SE MN. Born in Decorah, tho.

    Yes, wish I had spell check for everything, but it only works on letters w/ my machine.
