Welcome to June. At least I think it’s June — if only the rain would go away! This “April Showers” thing has been going on long enough and is about to drown any “May Flowers” that I did manage to get growing. But enough complaining; it’s Missouri, so why should I expect the normal?
As we begin our summer hiatus away from the regular meeting place of Lewis and Clark Middle School, let’s look at the upcoming events. This month, we will meet at Capitol Eye Care to visit about Macs in Business. Drs. Luetkemeyer and Lewis have been gracious enough to allow us to visit and learn from them some very practical applications using Macs. We will hopefully get a bit of history of Macs in their business and information regarding benefits to patients.
The July meeting will be our annual Fix-It and Maintain-It opportunity held at Trinity Lutheran Cafeteria. This year we will also incorporate some further information on Leopard and using dotMac accounts. Look for further information in next month’s Digest, but be prepared to get some highly-useful information from some highly-qualified individuals.
August is the annual picnic which, like last year, will again be held at the North Jefferson City pavilion. Even though we can count on warm (hot?) weather, we all gather for a meal of burgers, brats, and dogs along with numerous selections of tasty treats provided by those in attendance. (But who knows, Missouri’s weather hasn’t exactly been running true to form. Maybe it will be one of those absolutely perfect summer days that do occasionally occur in our Great State!)
Last month’s meeting was informative for all, but particularly those interested in photography. Peggy Landwehr presented on iPhoto and George Kopp contrasted it with a presentation on Adobe’s Lightroom.
Winners of the door prizes at the meeting were as follows:
- Geof Payne Digital Photography Handbook
- Tom Vaughn Blending Modes Cookbook
- Robert Williams Photoshop Retouching Cookbook
- Alice Kopp Adobe Photoshop CS3 book
- Bill Webb Photoshop Lightroom Adventure book
- Sister Josetta Eveler Ream of Photo paper
- Terry Larkin Roxio Toast 9 software
Until June 3, stay dry and look for the silver lining.
