Morning Thoughts--I am Back in Mexico


After a month in the States, I am back to my Mexico home in Ajijic. You know the old saying, There is no place like home. So true.  It was nice to be away and visit with friends and family but it is also good to be home. I have learned something about myself on this trip and return. I am almost computer illiterate. Knowing how to get around on computers is like learning a language and I learned it late in life. During my trip I saw small children, ones just learning to talk, using computers. For them it will be very easy to keep up with the technology and fast moving changes. For me, it is difficult.

I bought a new I pad while I was up there and do not know how to put an i photo program on it. My son and I cannot work together on computers because he is too impatient with me. My memory is bad and I have to ask him the same questions over and over. He gets angry and I get frustrated. It is a bad situation so I did not accomplish what I had hoped with the new I pad. And this morning I found out that my old i photo program on my old computer no longer opens up. Looks like I need to get a computer geek in here to help me sort it all out. Otherwise, I cannot get any photos onto my blog.

Other than that, life is good. Who needs photographs anyway? After 70,000 photos and many of them are of the same six blocks..... 

My son said, Those Koi at the Lake Chapala Society are the most photographed Koi in the world. 

Maybe I should name them.....

 For now, I will still write my Morning Thoughts with no photos. Do I still have readers out there in the invisible world of the internet?

  2. Welcome Home Patricia! I checked from time to time to see if you were posting from Portland. I'm glad to see you're back! Yes travel is nice but part of the goodness in it is returning home and sleeping in our own bed. : )

  8. Welcome home!
    What a lovely surprise to see your update and that you are back home safely.
    Oh I really understand about difficulties with computers.
    I even have trouble with the t.v. remote. My kids had to show me so many times how to operate the remote that eventually I had to run the instructions down.

  16. I've been keeping an eye out for you too - glad you made it home OK. Sorry your son was impatient with you. I know from my own experience that this sort of thing is always regrettable. If you will learn to search Google with plain English questions you will find most of your answers - like, How do I install iPhoto on my iPad? You'd be surprised...

  17. Hi Stan, Thank you . I have been researching on the internet and I read the almost 100 page of directions but it only tells me how to put the photos on the ipad and not how to send them to the blog. THought I had done it yesterday by cutting and pasting. But once the photo was pasted on the blog it did not stay on when I tried to publish it. Tomorrow I go to an i pad class. p

  20. Welcome back. This is from 2012 and the answer was from someone on a Mac, so it may look slightly different.

    Having difficulty finding my photos to upload from iPhoto to Blogger
