The January  monthly meeting of Natmac will take place on January 4 commencing at 7:00 p.m. at Holy Cross Hospital.

I trust everyone had a safe New Year?s Eve and hopefully will have the same all through 2012, as well as good health. I just finished my morning coffee and reading today?s Sun-Sentinel and wanted to share with you one of the editorial cartoons featured in the year end review.


I think we can all relate to this.

Every time I use my low end (inexpensive) HP printer-scanner and get such good results I wonder what the more expensive units would do. Well, one member will find out since one of the 5 door prizes this month will be a higher end all-in-one printer scanner. It was purchased a while ago and is in a rather large box which I have to remove from my store room to make space for all the new stuff I just acquired for future door prizes. The usual rules will apply; each paid membership will receive one raffle ticket but additional tickets can be purchased at the cost of $1 or 6/$5. Only one prize per membership still applies, of course.
