    My gal friend is 30 years younger than me and she is just as smart as a ten year old to help me with my phone problems.

    My son helped me write a computer program for one of my chemistry classes. I don't have a smart phone, so I don't have to ask my grand daughter how to use it. My daughter recently tried to show me how to use an Ipad I had purchased. It was a dismal failure and I returned it.

    I readily admit that I'm technologically a dinosaur.  I have a 10-15 year old LG flip phone that gets calls and sends calls although I can get text messages, too.  I am petrified about having to buy a smartphone.  It took me years to figure out the one I have, so if I can't figure a new one out, it's useless to me.  Same with my GPS.  My old one finally went  Bought a new one and it's so complicated that i can't figure out how to add addresses.
