New kid on the block/have patience please

:dto tell you the truth, i don’t even know what a thread is. I am not computer literate, so bear with me. I’m just glad to be a part of this and ask that you have patience with me until i learn a few things about this forum. The first time i tried to use ebay & buy some shoes, i did something wrong and a man wrote “avoid this person”. I was so hurt that i have never gone on that site again. Just hope i can get some great recipes and give back some of my favorites.
