How to find people and answers with new "search" option

by Linda Waggener

For those of us who don't use computers every day, surfing the internet can be frustrating. Such was the case for Charles Marshall who mentioned at church that he had tried to re-visit our photo of his little granddaughter but hadn't been able to find it again.

"I just can't run those things," Charles said of his and Yvonne's computer. It was easy to remember being at that same phase as a new internet user. So for Charles, and for any other readers who can use them, here are a few how-to steps for successful surfing:

The new "search" option in the menu box on the top left side of this page makes finding past items much easier. Just click on the word "search", delete it, and then type in the name or word you're curious about. In this case I typed in "Charles Marshall", then hit the "return/enter key" and the search function did it's work and found the photo of Charles' little granddaughter among a list of items similar words to the ones that I typed in. The steps are:


1) Locate the menu box at the top left corner of this page,
2) Click on the word "search" and delete it,
3) Type in the name or word you are curious about,
4) Hit the "return/enter key,
5) Try several times before giving up.

The google box, down on the left side of this page, is a spot from which to look at the whole world. Just type in any single thing your mind is curious about, anywhere in the universe, and see what's out there on the world wide web. Happy surfing!


1) Locate the "google" logo,
2) Click in the empty google search box,
3) Type any word or name you are curious about,
4) Hit the "return/enter key",
5) Try several times before giving up.

Heralding spring

2005-03-12 - Adair County, KY - Photo Linda Waggener. GOD LETS KENTUCKIANS KNOW there's life after winter days before the calendar says spring is official with the appearance of Daffodils. They dot the countryside, defining old homeplaces from Knifley to Sparksville. The flower may look fragile but it fights its way through the harsh winds and spitting snow of the season change. (If you'd like to know more about the Daffodil , Narcissus Jonquilla, family Amaryllidaceae, just click 'read more' for google search tips).
