Spring had sprung! At least I think it has. There are green leaves popping up in the garden —wish I remembered what I had planted— and the sun is still up after the dinner dishes are done. It will still be light when we arrive for the meeting Tuesday night,
Forget the snow flurries on Easter morning; it was just a little joke from Mother Nature. What I love about April is the promise of new beginnings.
Let’s get excited about the promise of the April 1 appleJAC MUG meeting — no Fooling! We’re looking forward to an informative evening regarding Podcasts. Tom Piper and friends will let us in on them — from where to find them, how to enjoy them, and what to expect from them. They might even let us in on how to begin to develop one.
Then in May, we plan to learn about Lightroom and Aperture. Now I know it must be Spring because we have only these two meetings before our Summer “break” from the Lewis and Clark meeting spot.
Our last meeting was a demonstration by Mrs. Sue Haugen on using the Airliner in the classroom. If you recall, appleJAC purchased one of these for Lewis and Clark. It was a good presentation, even if everything did not go according to plan. Which of us has NOT had something go awry in even the best planned demonstration?. Mrs. Haugen demonstrated the different applications of the Airliner and showcased some of the software used in the math classes. She passed around the tablet for members to try. Just like a teacher — hands-on experience!
Winners of door prizes for the night were:
- Mark Snell Apple-logo Cup
- Charlie Bland Mac OS X Leopard Pocket Guide
- Steve Archer Adobe Clock
- Bruce Heerboth Printer paper (ream)
- Ros Moulton Photoshop Cookbook
- Margie Stevenson Adobe Photoshop One-on-One book
C. S. Lewis once said, “We need to know we’re not alone”. Join us for the April 1 meeting at Lewis and Clark Middle School to find the aJ connection to this sense of community in the Mac world. Advice on all subjects abounds to let you know you are not alone. Come get the advice you need and share the advice you have with others from the Mac community.
