The voting station is at the end of our drive and the walk is impossible. I am 74 and until finding today I had no hope"so here goes" thankyouu

Oh don't feel 'old and done' Daisymoonstar. I bet there are plenty of 74 year old's who don't know how to use computers and the internet. I'm in my early 50's and often struggle with the technologygrin.

I don't go on face book and rarely email, in fact before I started coming on Gransnet, discovered for me by my dear husband, I'd never accessed the internet before.

Is that different forum?

Sorry, that came put wrong! I just wondered why you mentioned silver line, daisy!

But don't be lonely, there are lots of us here on Gransnet to talk to about almost everything. So welcome. smile

Someone should have organised a postal vote for you, but the feeling that something others take for granted is impossible for you is a depressing one. Try not to let it get to you though.

Isn't Silverline the thing started by Esther Rantzen? I don't think it has a forum.

I agree Soutra.

If you click a link to 'forums' on the Silverline site it brings you to Gransnet.

Yes, that's how I found this site.

Hello Daisymoonstar - I hope your feeling of 'old and done' has lessened a little at least. It can be frustrating can't it not to be able to do the things we once could.

We all post here for our own personal reasons and those reasons will be varied - so I hope you enjoy posting here and make some new friends.

Hello daisymoonstar , you'll find us friendly, if a wee bit argumentative at times - just like real life !

Don't think she's coming back.
