This user is suspected to be a bot. Or at least a troll. Reported for suspected bot action.

I use this computer for travel. So for the most part I check e-mail and occasionally work on spreadsheets and word processing

If most of your use is web based, And you travel with it. Then i would suggest Puppy Linux.
Puppy boots and loads from a CD. Then runs from RAM. Each restart is a fresh load from CD. From a security standpoint (and if you are traveling, you need to be concerned about security) Puppy is great because any malware you may pickup can't infect the boot CD. Lucid Puppy gives you a choice of web browsers. And I think there is even a version that comes with Libre Office already installed. Check the Puppy web site.

Thank you

Because I am new to all of this, I did not realize the question I posed would continue to elicit responses for such a long time. It has been a while since I last checked in. Some of the answers are beyond my understanding. Nonetheless, I want to thank everyone who gave time and effort to help me.

Best wishes, Scott

Because you haven't checked in:
What have you done so far?
How far have you gotten?
We would still like to help you.
