As a recovered dementian (that is a person who WAS in full stage, 24/7 care GONE dementia) I am the
happiest & blessed of campers since recovering my wit & wherewthall, cognitive/communicative/learning abilities, memories and focusing abilities, I must now overcome
being able to aquire proper knowledge of how to educate myself on how to understand, navigate & best use this most wondrous, informative and fun sites--premies.com.

The cause of this insidious lost of cognition made it gradually at first, picking up speed of lost abilities until I then rapidly declined to no a not being person.  Because this happened as it did, I missed the development of the whole digital/online information highway happening. This meant as I have sooo miraculously & fortuitously regain normal functioning abilities, I found I had to teach myself everything about everything computer & online navigation related.  

I am needing the clearest instructions on how to get around and ooerste within the Premies site.  Mighty confusioning for this gormerly GONE girl.  Are there 101 instructions somewhere?  And please, be kind to me since I am asking for help/guidance and tips in learning the best way to understand & properly find my way using this site.  I am anything but stupid.  Any inabilities I display is from just never having  learned...YET!

Please do not shame me for not knowing what I need to learn.  Not that long ago, I used to have to hold my hand out with coins in it for people to make change for me because I could no remember what nickels, dimes & quarter's were worth.  I could not hold focus still to even remember or find words to express myself.  Thank you in advance for your patience with me, I am eager to learn.  Mo

Welcome to Permies, Mo!

Try not to get too caught up in all the buttons when you're just learning to post here. The most important things are to "be nice" and "leave room for other's opinions". It was years before I could do anything more than simple replies and teasingly call myself "Dinosaur Jay". I still struggle to search the site even when I *know* there's a thread on a topic out there. Despite that, I've made many contributions that other members seem to have really appreciated and I've learned a tremendous amount. I hope you can do the same.

What areas of permaculture are you interested in?

Do you have a garden or would you like to start one?

Have you read any books about permaculture?

Knowing a bit more about your particular permaculture related interests will help us to make you feel that you can participate despite your health issues. You are not alone with such things, and planting, harvesting and eating well all help with the healing process for many people.

Welcome again!  J.

Question please.
While investgating this truely wonderous site that has something about everything for everybody, I began by reading,  "What Everyone is Reading".  I wanted to ask someone something about  a comment but could not send a message.  How is this done please?  Some cut and pasted what they were referring to in someone's post followed with their message but no amountbof trying to tap on something would allow me to dend a message.    

Btw, while exploring what zero replies was about, I came across the Sante Cruz Mountain community  post.  K was able to reply to that...what was the difference as to why I could send there but not ayv2 other I mentioned?

I am sure it is someyhing simple I can learn.  Thank you.

When you're logged in, there will be buttons on every post. To cut and paste another persons writing for you to refer to, click the button that says "quote" and a window will open with their text already in it and you can start typing what you want to say. This is what I did to write this reply to your question. Here is a picture of the buttons to look for:
