With the help of my grandson Simon, I've put together this simple guide to get you
started sending e-mail and surfing the World Wide Web (or paddling in it, at least).
Simon says; we've used Internet Explorer, which is available free from Microsoft.

Simon Says: Here’s the original guide for the complete newcomer to the Internet,
written for a real granny who started surfing the net aged 83. If you find doorstop-size
books like the Rough Guide to the Internet too intimidating at 380 pages (excellent
though they are), this tried and tested classic from nearly a decade ago might give
you helping hand to get started. The Internet has moved on but the basics of sending
an e-mail, surfing the net and taking your virtual trolley on an online supermarket
shop remain much the same.
'It's the pocket-sized sequel to Grandma's Guide to the Internet, which came out
last year, and shows older on-liners how to order groceries, pick up a present, donate
to a charity or track down a bargain, all from the comfort of their computer console.
