Meet Jean Hripto from Oceanside. Jean, and hubby George, bought a computer over a year ago. So far, only Jean is brave enough to tackle the beast! She has enrolled in computer classes at the Senior Center so she can learn to use the computer as a hobby (or a diversion). Most of all, she refuses to let it scare her.     
         Jean has also been taking classes from Joan, of ComputED. Together, they are teaching her home computer to
talk, i.e., using a new program called "Dragon Naturally Speaking," since Jean would rather dictate, and let the computer do the typing for her!
          "I also like to send email to my family in Texas, and communicate online with friends," she says.
