Smile That's What Kids Are For, LOL!

I think I have just made my kids very happy. You see, their Mom has just officially given them a reason to say, "See, I did know what I was talking about, huh?"

Bought my Nook five days ago and have been doing well on my own. Until today I downloaded a book from FeedBook and when I went to look at it, noticed it was an EXACT 1880 copy (which meant I couldn't read it because the print was so small).

So I needed to delete it. But how???? I had no idea. I was told how delete a book from the B&N library but didn't know about the My Documents section.

In walks my 15 y/o. Needless to say he got a major ego boost by being able to show his Mom how to go about getting into the computer docs, highlighting and then deleting

Hey......what are kids for, LOL!!!

I've had to call my son for work computers before because the techs didn't know what to do. He managed to talk me through the process of fixing the problem. I gave the tech his number and told them he would show them the solution for a fee. He was about 17 at the time. He is now in college studying computers.

kk, my son was eventually forbidden by the school computer 'tech' from running his own anti-virus program or from fixing what the 'tech' said couldn't be fixed. The tech would get so mad when he said a problem would take a week to fix and my son would have the computer back up in a class period. (Being forbidden didn't stop him, just made him sneakier.)

Little kids are handy to have them get nuts and bolts down inside a crevice of a car where you dropped them, by accident of course. You can even hang them upside down by their feet if necessary, of course if they're small enough to do such a thing. Again not that I'm speaking from experience.

They also come in handy for opening the *ahem* "child-proof" lids on medicine.

My son wasn't even two yet when he opened his first one, and that was quite by accident. We thought the bottle was safe, in a child proof drawer, but he managed to open both, even when the drawer was above his head, and he didn't climb back then.
