When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

[This email will teach you some history of my beginnings of desktop publishing, hopefully in a "light-hearted" fashion for some enjoyable reading by you.

And, besides my mother wants to know where I learned how to do these things! She has taken numerous computer courses and still reaches for the power cord - all too often.

So, here is the story - for her and the rest of the readers.

It all started in the summer of 1984 - twenty years ago, now. The Apple IIc had just come out and was priced somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000. I really wanted the Macintosh, but could not afford it - but, man the user interface really pulled me over to it, believe me.]
