Meeting Agenda For November 2015

November 3 - Painting a Landscape

We may not be able to do what Carol Lambert can do, but we can enjoy it, not to mention marvel at what she can accomplish. This is a presentation that is far different from all the Windows and other software tips, etc., but we will see what is actually possible with a PC. Most people think a PC is good, even great, for spreadsheets, letters, even keeping a checkbook. But here is something we would not expect to see a PC doing.

Yes, our own Carol Lambert will be showing us how she digitally paints a full landscape scene from beginning to end with Photoshop. If there’s extra time, she might try making another quick painting in Artrage.

November 10 - Let’s Dine Together

We will try a new, to many of us, place – Fab Hot Dogs. Now, don’t let the name turn you off. While they have an array of hot dog types that, I think, beats the varieties of pizzas or anything else. And, yes, I heard the news about processed meat. But it was also said that occasionally eating hot dogs and such is okay, just not good to have on a regular basis. We’re all entitled to a treat now and then and this definitely fills the bill.

There are many other items on their extensive menu, in addition hot dogs and burgers, if you can resist those. So join us on Tuesday, November 10, for a wonderful time dinning together.

Our fundraising time is 4:30 to 8:00 pm

Put this on your calendar. Okay?

Our dining fund-raiser will be 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. with most TUGNET folks arriving in the 5:30 to 6:30 time period. Flyers will be available.

It is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these occasions. It is always available, even if you are not’t able to get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter, so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!

November 17 - iPhone Tips and Tricks

Due to the many requests, Jim and Barbara Gates will be back to help us get the best use of our iPhones. There are so many features and most of us never get around to making use of them.

With Jim and Barbara pointing out how to handle various icons, etc., and which apps are very useful and maybe even some that are not. We will all learn how to do things we are currently not doing.

Incidentally, what is demonstrated on an iPhone is most often available on Android and Windows phones as well. So don’t feel left out, bring your notebook and, I assume you’ll have your phone with you. Make notes of what is shown to improve your use of your current phone.
