If you are like me, you will find this tip very helpful, but will need it so infrequently that you will forget it. So this is one you might wish to post near your computer.

This is for those annoying times when you have been typing for several seconds, or even minutes, and then find you have had your Caps Lock on. Arrgh! By selecting the area and pressing shift and F3, you will magically reverse all the letters. Presto! All better. One of my favorite fixes.

Having first retired from social work in 2008, I've now had time to work through seasons of all play, and seasons of part-time work, while I figured out how best to make use of my "golden" years. The internet provides so much assistance in finding unlimited ideas related to finances, hobbies, travel and staying healthy, but I soon found my passion in quilting. The vast array of techniques have resulted in seeing inspiration everywhere, and practice is always rewarded with improved skills. Of course, grandchildren and family still get priority, but I see this as a pursuit that will remain interesting into my old age.
