I decided to go through some old files which I had saved from one of my organizations. I went through each folder and chucked 99.9% of the paper. It is now in the recycle bin. s a result, i was able to empty a box too. That was an accomplishment.
At the historical society round table today I was able to help someone install libreoffice. She has Windows8 which makes finding things so difficult. Next time I will help her install "classic shell" which will make it feel more like Windows7. Until then I pinned the shortcut on her task bar so that she wouldn't have to look for the icon in her apps. <sigh>
