Making Memories 

 Today's technology makes it easy to create a memory beyond just photos. With today's smartphones and cameras it's easy to record a video or record your voice.
 And Windows 10 let's you edit a video and create a file in MP4, MOV or WMV format. Each is able to UpLoad to YouTube , or post to the Cloud in a Blog, or eMail in some cases.
It would be so unfortunate not to take advantage of these tools you have to make a memory .  If not for you , think of your grand children or your spouse who would enjoy those recorded  moments. Today's technology makes it easy.  I suggest using Facebook movies, movies made from your Smartphone, or movies made from your camera.
Upload your personal video to YouTube
First you must create an account on YouTube to manage your videos. Then you can Upload your MP4 , or MWV movie to your Youtube account. The term that is use is Your Channel. It is similar to managing a Blog. And basically you create your own space on YOUTUBE, that you upload your videos . You can make them Private or Public.
