Begrand use their own website building tools and so they are quickly able to respond to my suggestions to adapt their website. This is rewarding work. Recently, I suggested that grandparents need more help to know the meanings of the headings on the Main Menu. Now when you hover over the icons with your mouse, there is help for you to decide whether to click or not. I find this rewarding work. For some of this work, I can manage with the broadband speeds that I get at home but there are no chat rooms, no video conferencing and no videos to help members to use the site. Begrand are unable expect that their users to get a speed that is sufficient for such applications and they are reluctant to add goodies that cannot be used by most of their members.

Do I work at home?
As a consultant, I am involved in several projects, where social media are used within an online community. One of these is Begrand, a website, supported by the government for grandparents, where I am on the Advisory Board. In the picture, I had just met the Green Goddess, Diana Moran on the Begrand stand at the Retirement Show. She invited me to join one of her exercise classes.
