BRATTLEBORO You Can't Break It -- Get Comfortable with Your Computer: Are you anxious about doing something "wrong" on your computer? Do you get frustrated with yourself or the computer? Where did you learn how to use a computer? Why is it that we think we should simply be able to sit down and use it without any instruction? We don't learn to drive cars by simply getting behind the driving wheel. Computers are a private experience and unless someone has been available to answer your questions or you are very good at reading instructions, there's a good chance that there are better ways to do things than what you're doing. In this session, you'll learn basic principles that will help you be comfortable. Bring your questions for Annamarie Pluhar. noon - 1 p.m. Free. Brown Bag Lunch Series, River Garden, 157 Main St. Information: 802-246-0982; Click for more info on Web in new window.
