    Hi, I am a 68 yr old female, a grandmother as you can tell from my username. My husband and children recently bought me an Ipad 3 with Retina Display for my birthday. Though I have a computer and actually had a website up for 9 years, I am a dork as far as intelligent knowledge is concerned about it. And now I have an Ipad, WOW!! So here I am seeking help from folks who know what they are doing, hurrah!

    I live in Northwest Arkansas; have been married 38 years. We have 3 children 5 grandchildren. Three dogs, 2 house cats and 3 porch kitties.
    :)

    G'day Irishmcgrammy. First off, there is no way you can be a dork. Simply, plus among other delightful things you say, because you are using an iPad. You are in the right place to interact with some amazing, helpful and knowledgeable people. Got a question? Ask away!
    Regards, Andrew

    Hi again . It seems that I have to use the app to get the links at the bottom. Can't get them from the email URL
    Also, clicked on all ur posts after tapping avatar, and that's where the pm was too.
    Still a little confusing navigating here but will keep trying .lol

    Hi Betti,

    Yes the email link will take you to the site and not the app. I usually use the app as I find it so much easier and quicker.

    You're getting there and will soon be up and running! ;)
