Just Google it!

I had a phone call from my mom today. She called because she wanted to know how to spell check in her hotmail email account by right clicking. The only problem is that she was on her new mac lap top and she doesn't have a "right" clicker. This puzzled me too because I'm not very familiar with the keyboard commands myself so I didn't know what to tell her. Then inspiration struck!

"Mom, just google it."

"Well, how to I do that??"

I have failed in training my mother completely in the wonders of the internet! Especially for a writer. Google is the best feature ever invented online! The power of a dictionary right at your finger tips!! And I have not shown my mother how to spell check via google!!?

I will have to remedy this immediately. I told her the next time I come to visit I'll enlighten her on the powers of google. She will love it and use it often I'm sure. But until then I'm afraid she'll be calling me every time she needs to spell check. Or she did mention that she would have to keep the dictionary next to the computer. Now that is a funny image to think on!
