New Bloggers!

Yesterday's schedule had no seminars, so we worked at the computer help desk all day. Keeping our skills sharp - seeing so many different computers and issues. Today we had our 'Every RVer Needs a Blog' seminar. We had another good crowd. And, by the time we got home, two new Blogs had been created and added to our list on GeeksOnTour! Wow - it is so gratifying to teach people how to do something and then see successful results. Check them out: The Traveling Farrars Spilsbury Travels Jim and I love doing this. In each seminar one of us 'drives' the computer and the other stands up and presents. It works really well. We're a good team. And, I wanted to mention one woman's comment at the end of class. I particularly enjoyed it when she said, "I was about to ask my daughter to help me make a web page, now I'm going to make one and show her how!" Rally Day 2 <-- a=""> --> more of Rally Day 3

As a person the doesn't travel anymore I enjoy traveling through the blogs I read. The wife and I traveled all over the country years ago. I'm alone now and it's always nice to read about people visiting and enjoying the places we shared as a couple.
I would like to travel again but for the life me I can't see me doing it alone. Keep up the good work showing the world how to blog one person at a time.

I forgot to add, Pictures, Pictures, Pictures and words about how a place makes you feel. I think that makes a good blog.

Ok, I now know how to log onto WiFi and how to make a blog and now how to log off of an automatic log on WiFi.
What I don't know is, what laptop to buy to use to do all of this stuff.
Is there a basic laptop or do I need a better one? Help, I'm lost when it comes to buying a laptop....

Chris - RE what laptop to buy - there are a lot of good laptops around right now. Pretty much any name brand will be fine. You don't need anything special. We've had good experience at Best Buy. Jim got a Sony Vaio a few years ago, I just bought a Toshiba Satellite. For around $700-800 you can get a good one. I just spent $1350 but I want a lot more hard drive, processor power and memory that most people would need. Wi-Fi is built in to all of them these days. Have fun!
