Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, we missed you…

At Conrad’s, it was all about KPFK; Cats, the movie; Andrew Lloyd Weber musicals; Andrew’s watch; Polar Express; more movies; stock exchange stories; and tipping nightmares.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!

December 16th General Meeting

 

Holiday Party

Top o’ the season to ye!

The holidays are almost upon us and that means it’s time for Apple users to get together to share some holiday spirit and talk about our favorite computers, phones, and tablets.

Join us on Monday, December 16th, for our last meeting of 2019. We’ll spend some time Apping & Trapping and some more time Q-ing & A-ing. Plus, we’re going to have a holiday party with all the things you’d expect – cookies, eggnog, and other delights. And on top of that, we’ll be having a holiday-sized drawing.

Sounds like a lot of fun so don’t miss it. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the bash.

So have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and a celebratory Solstice.

Did You Know?

Photos can take you places!

On TidBITS this morning, Donald C O’Shea had this to say on the subject:

On a recent trip to Barcelona, my wife and I saw two T-shirts in a shop window: the Muppets as Reservoir Dogs and Cookie Monster in The Scream. Through the shop’s rain-streaked window, I took pictures of the shirts to send to our daughter, a puppeteer and a fan of the Muppets.

Later in the day, we decided that those T-shirts would make great Christmas presents for our daughter and granddaughter. But we had walked long enough and far enough in the meantime that we had no idea where the shop was located. We wandered around the area, searching for it in vain. Then I remembered the pictures I had taken of the T-shirts.

He continues on how they got back to the T-shirt shop: Places, Please! Geolocation in Apple’s Photos.

Were You at the Meeting Last Night?

If not, you missed a really great presentation! WOW!!

At Conrad’s, bus and train fares, various movie and studio gossip, buying a new car at dealerships, “birds of prey”, comic books to movies, Stargate excitement, adventure films pretending to be science fiction, what the next Mac OS might be called, and Hollywood politics occupied most of our time.

That’s my story; I’m sticking to it!
