Here I sit writing my first blog to publish. I cannot believe I am doing this. I am being dragged from the Dinosaur age into the world of Technology. I used to think I was clever when I first started work and taught my self how to Touch Type on a computer. I then thought I was clever when I was able to continue my studies for a Diploma Course whilst I was married and had two toddlers at home. Now I jump on to Google when I want to find out information on what ever I require. Maybe a holiday destination or to check my bank account to see if I have any money to to pay for my holiday.

Technology, mainly the Internet has bought a whole new way of learning into my life. It has made the world a smaller place and it is fantastic for people who are home bound. My latest bit of technology is AudioBooks. I have now learnt how to download books on to my Ipod and it is great to be able to walk the my dog and listen to the next chapter of my book, or clean my house and not notice the effort involved as I am to busy with what is going to happen next with the story.

When I drive to work I listen to Audio Books on the CD player in the car the latest book I read was, A thousand Splendid Suns which I had borrowed from the Library. It was a great read. So bring on the learning we are never too old take up the offer of Computer Classes which are held regularly at Hurstville Library. There are many other classes on offer such as Mobile Phone classes or maybe you want to delve into your Family History with the Ancestry Database Training. Whatever the reason for having to try technology, give it a go, you will be surprised how easy it is and how clever you feel when you have mastered the task, and how it makes our lives more interesting.
