Posted by Chapster on Dec-20-2004 (2077 reads)

We have recently added two new sections that we recorded during a Community Focus segment at KEOM 88.5 Mesquite Schools radio. The first one, by Barb, is entiitled Coping during the Holidays. The second segment, by Mike, deals with staying safe while using the internet - High Tech (to Keep in) High Touch. As a teaser, ElderHope recommends that you install and use as much as possible the Firebird and Thunderbird browser and email progam. Keep your Internet Explorer for pages that don't work right with them.
