Let me start by telling you
how I got on the WebTV


OK, my son Jason, 17 at the time, had been into computers for over 8 years. He even tried to get me on the internet on his first Tandy that his dad bought him. Well, showing no interest I frustrated him....lol. Then he started having problems with his computer and it even shut down. Well, we bought the kids a Saturn game system and thought we would get the attachment pieces to go with it. So we hooked up the Net Link and they had the internet through the game. They used that for around two years
and at the end of it we put it into the living room and I used Hotmail's email service and they showed me how to do email, this was summer of 98. I exchanged emails with my sister in Tennessee and basically that was all. I never went on to go and search the internet for anything. Then my son started talking about the WebTV and how much nicer this was then his Saturn Net Link, and I just ignored him as I didn't see it to be worth it to write my sister, that is all I was interested in. Then in Dec. of 98 he decided he would buy the webtv unit out of his own money if I would let him put it into the living room in place of the Saturn. That was fine with me. Well I got hooked up and had my own account and was doing the email. It was so much easier not having to go to a hotmail account. So then guess what.... Jason showed me the newsgroup about learning how to use the webtv.... webtv.users....or new to webtv, something like that I can't remember.

My whole world opened up then, I started asking questions about the email and all that. Then the world of html opened up and wow! My email was loaded with around 10 gifs. Jason then suggested that I open a webpage to store my gifs on... then that one page was taken to long to load and so he opened a page two and then I watched him and then he turned me loose. I thought rather than just store my favorite pictures of cats and things that I would make a page like all these other ones I had seen. So now you know what I was doing all of 1999. I never looked back at boring TV or wondering what can I do now....lol. I bought the unit from him and he used the money to upgrade his computer. It is a good thing because I would of taken up all the time on the WebTV.

My husband then got a computer in Nov. of 99, but I kept my WebTV till they messed up my account. I got my own computer last year and now we have side by side desk in our office. I will always keep my little black box though. It brought my soul mate to me, and that is very special to me.

Follow your Heart
For I have found this to be so true!


Never surrender your dreams.
Constantly work towards your goals.
Believe in yourself,
and always be truthful.
Take time to enjoy life's pleasures.
Keep your mind open to new experiences.
Think before acting,
but don't forget the joys of spontaneity.
Make your own decisions.
Look out for yourself but remember
that you share this universe with others.
Look for the good in others,
everybody has their own song to sing.
Live each moment to the fullest,
for a moment too soon becomes a memory.
Look for opportunities,
not guarantees.
Hope for the best.
Give people a chance to love you,
for that is how you learn to love.
Live your life for yourself,
but always be considerate of others.
Believe in tomorrow,
for it holds the key to your continued success.
