Happy Labor Day:
As I write the above salutation I can't help but wonder when, due to the disintegration of the union movement in this country, the name of the holiday will be changed. Nevertheless, here's hoping everyone has a couple of hot dogs and/or burgers and gets to the beach on Monday and shows up on Wednesday evening for our last meeting of the summer.
This month we welcome back our resident guru, Dean Hoffmann, who last month took a rare and well deserved night off from the rigors of teaching us about our computers, phones, tablets, etc. I'm sure he will have lots of news to fill us in on.
Here is a deal for those of you interested in subscribing to MacWorld magazine. Every month in the User Group discounts at the end of the Newsletter is listed a discounted rate of $15. I have been advised that when one attempts to use the discount it doesn't always work. But here is a way to (hopefully) get a one year subscription for only $10. Click on the link to DiscountMags below and use the code. Let me know if it works for you.
DiscountMags has 1-Year Macworld Magazine Subscription for $21.97 - $12 off with coupon code SLICKDEALS = $9.97.
This month, for the first time in quite awhile, we will proceed without the services of our resident guru, Dean Hoffmann. Our meeting night falls on his and wife Jackie's wedding anniversary and showing his good sense he has chosen to spend it with her rather than with us. I'm sure you all will join me in wishing Dean and Jackie many happy returns. I don't know the number of the anniversary but it's got to be up there (Dean is older than he looks.... or acts). In his stead member Dave Glassman will give a talk on his recent Mount Everest Base Camp Trek seen through video and photos. He will be glad to talk about how to organize, edit, add voice over and adding music to the video. As a preview of some of the wonderful photography we will see take a look at the Photo of the Month at the end of this epistle.
Our May meeting is coming up as early in the month as is possible. I almost overlooked the early date and was lucky to see that this Reminder was due this weekend. Hopefully, you will not do the same and will be on hand on Wednesday next.
