One of the main reasons I decided to develop this web site, was the lack of basic knowledge available on a multitude of subjects. Once a certain amount of knowledge has been acquired on any subject it is easy to forget what it is like to be a complete novice.
This applies to everything from gardening, woodwork, cookery, computers etc. etc. etc. This was highlighted when my daughter, having just left home, asked me what "simmering" meant - a term an experienced cook takes for granted. This from a highly intelligent young lady who has two First degrees and is now a pharmacist.
I then experienced the same thing when speaking to a computer software help desk, having just upgraded from DOS to Windows - "Click on File" the young man said - Do what? Where?
This was where the germ of an idea began, however, once I got started there were more and more things I wanted to include and I have, therefore, somewhat diversified from my original idea. The ethos of the site remains, however, which is to provide clear, concise, practical information and advice suitable for everyone irrespective of age or gender.
