Welcome to the home page of Janet Elizabeth (JE) ... folkie, Scottish country dancer, theatre-goer, concert-goer, armchair gardener and advisor to people beginning to use computers; advocate of fairtrade, charity shops and freecycle, Apple Macs and travel without private motor vehicles.
Below are links to pages about some of my interests. Tap on the image or the bolded text.
I enjoy helping people use computing devices and do this in various ways:
I help disabled people as a volunteer with "IT Support at Home" Service, run by the charity AbilityNet, which offers free IT support for disabled and older people.
I also help members of the local U3A, publishing my Computer Beginners' help documents for reference online.
I maintain separate web pages with more general computer help.
Singing is good for you, and I enjoy various kinds of music and song, mainly traditional varieties and especially when joining in! Styles include regular British Folk, early music and Shapenote or Sacred Harp singing. I run a monthly U3A group that learn about shanties and sea-songs, and am in the process of publishing my shanty notes online.
Different seasons offer different opportunities. In spring and summer there is singing (including shape notes), music, dance and workshops at festivals, in the autumn there is the Bremf Brighton Early Music Festival and in the run up to Christmas the Brighton Pub Carols.
