  1. I read your column in the Worcester, MA Aug 21 issue and have two comments: 1,.My husband and I regularly write checks at the grocery store and we do not hold up others – we prep the check before getting to the cashier so we only need to add the amount at the end of our order; the ones who delay others are those who use charge cards. I am uncomfortable with your comment. 2. Your column seems to relate only to PCs. Why not Macs – most of the info in your column is useless for us since we are a Mac household….At least if there is something new, add the way to get to it using a Mac – such as click the mouse, not right-click since a Mac mouse does not have two sides…..
    We are having trouble with our e-mail so if you feel like calling us, our number is 508-757-2881, after 10 AM eastern time. (I did contact the Telegram people but no idea if they will send my comments on to you.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. We have done Macs a lot more often since you wrote this, and will keep at it.
