About Me
I have been involved with computers starting with Mainframes & Minis (1960s) to now Tablets (2012). I use PCs and the internet for both work, home and my part-time business of helping others to get into the world of automation and technology. I have used OS of Macs and Windows for PCs. I know how to use most of the application software on both platforms and I have spent the last 20+ years taking throw-a-way PCs, refurbishing them and providing them to students that can afford to purchase a new PC. For the older generation, I have provided them with basic instructions and information so they would be able to help their very young grandchildren with the PC. I have been a user of Visual-Thesaurus since it became available back in 2005 - 2007 and have found it to be the best way of finding words and their relationship to other words in this cool visual method. I have found that this cool tool is very helpful when writing any and everything from a thank you note to a research paper.

Least Favorite Word:

partisanship
All it is is "lip-service" without any true action to fix a problem being taken. The word itself creates "red-tape" that must be cut over and over again before any action can be started
