Default If I write in this section what happens

When I look at the computer screen I have way to much information to read and understand how to use the concept. Is their a phone number that I can call to understand what it is that I'm seeing and what am I to do. It might sound like I'm stupid but I'm not.

George, there are a couple of things you may consider. It is normal to be a bit overwhelmed by the amount of information you must absorb when taking up a new hobby. However, you are retired, so if you take it slowly and one thing at a time, your pension cheques aren't going to stop because you didn't make enough progress today.

Check on whether your local high schools or community college offer woodworking courses. Home Hardware sometimes offers routing courses, check at the courtesy desk to see if they are doing any soon, or talk to the friendly staff at your local tool outlet. I've learned a lot this way, by talking to staff when the store isn't particularly busy.

Some towns have woodworking clubs for seniors, and maybe you have a friend who knows some of the answers to your questions.

And by all means come to a friendly forum like this, and ask specific questions. Eventually the fog will clear, and you'll see the way to go.

Where in Ontario are you?
