Witchcraft

I have finally joined the 21st century and got internet access at home. My lovely 87 year old dad, with whom I live, has viewed it with great suspicion. If it wasn't for the fact that I will have to work from home during the Olympics, I wouldn't even have it. But work have kindly supplied the laptop and the hub arrived on Friday so I brought it home to set it up.

This morning, I took the laptop into the back living room to check that the signal is good enough, we live in an old Victorian house with thick solid internal walls, and my phone was showing a drop in signal in that room. I placed it on my lap and started tapping away when Dad walked past and made a flippant comment about it not being able to play Beethoven's 9th symphony. I went onto Youtube and searched for it. His face was a picture when his favorite bit started playing. It's witchcraft that's what it is............................

We tried to get my Dad (before he passed away last year) on the internet but, although he thought it was wonderful, he just couldn't get to grips with it. Your Dad may decide to become a silver surfer!

I think my Dad will be pretty much the same. He has forgotten how to use the Cd player so I doubt he will be able to master the internet
