    If I can do it, Opal, you can do it!

    Not if she doesn’t have a printer.

    Printing from a computer saves the trouble of getting carpal tunnel syndrome (and a trip to the pencil sharpener).

    By the time you get the computer and printer to cooperate and print it, you could have already have written it down.

    Oh ! That so much sounds like my Mom, God rest her soul.She was perpetually fascinated by what the cmputer could do,
    As a retired school secretary, she was enthralled with spell-check and Microsoft Word !

    She needs both ink and paper whether it is for the computer or for writing it down. ; – )

    Oh my goodness….
    This is more common than you’d think….

    I’ve tutored people who thought you had to type something into an e-mail to print it…
    who backspaced through two paragraphs, deleting all their text, just to correct one word,

    One refused to even try to highlight, copy and paste, cos it was too mind-boggling….

    And one of my favorites…
    one who called me about a printer problem…
    and when I wanted to walk her through it, told me to hang up so she could call me on her cell phone….
    so the printer could be online, over the landline.

    She needs another type of ink and paper for writing, possibly.

    I often “write recipes down” from internet. It is just that those recipes usually come with photos and lots of other unnecessary hullaboo, so it is faster to scribble the components on a notepaper than try to get the original recipe into suitable form for printing.

    you CAN copy and paste into Word as “text only.”

    That’s what I do.

    Shame on you, Brian Crane! You insult those of us over the age of 65 who contributed so well to the life of business during its most innovative years. I, and others like me, helped field-test most of the machines you use today.

    I lose printouts. I write recipes in my own notebook. That way they’re all together, I know where they are, and copying it out helps me remember the ingredients.
    Of course if it’s really complex I will print it out.

    This strikes a chord. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could insert your notebook paper into the printer & print out what you see, and the printer would automatically orient & resize the page you’ve inserted?

    My favorite is Google Earth. I can travel anywhere—just like flying.

    Don’t you DARE make fun of us
    Luddites, Miss Know-It-All! I’m betting you wouldn’t have a clue how to knit a glove from the top down, darn a sock, Iron a white cotton shirt so it comes out without wrinkles, color white margarine yellow, or use a mangle or write using ink and a nib pen without making blots on your paper!
