Happy December all! A good dose of cold and snow finally arrived, keeping all you snow hounds happy! Now it’s back to warmish days and I’m happy too. 😉 As with last month, things are just too busy in December to do more than two classes. Hope you can make one or both! On to the details…

Class list for December 2014:
Sat., Dec. 13th, from 10-noon: Search Smarter!; Ridgway Library
Wed., Dec. 17th, from 5-7 pm: FREE Mac OS X Overview; Ridgway Library

Please remember to let me know if you plan to attend any of these classes; if I get enough commitments ahead of time, I don’t have to send out a nagging reminder!

 For my only focused class this month, on Saturday, December 13th, from 10-noon in the Ridgway Library meeting room, I will be covering a new topic: Search Smarter! How many times have you tried to search the internet for something, only to keep hitting a dead end? Or you may have gotten frustrated with the way Google now filters its search results based on your previous search history. Regardless, I can show you a thing or two about how to narrow down a difficult search topic, or find just the right size and format of that image you need for a craft project. Come learn how to be a master web searcher! (Bonus points if you can identify the logo above without doing a search!) Cost for this class is $20, and it will be held at the Ridgway Town Hall.

 Then, my regular last-Wednesday-of-the-month class will happen two weeks early this month, due to the holidays. This month, it’s the FREE Mac OS X Overview, and it’s on Wednesday, Dec. 17th from 5-7 pm. This class is held in the computer lab. Space is limited, so you have to sign up, and the Library has asked that I handle the sign ups, so give me a call at 970-417-8434 (or drop me an email) if you’d like to attend. (Be aware that first-timers take priority over anyone who has taken the class before, but there are often openings for repeaters).

For the Mac Overview, there are six Macs in the computer lab, so only two of the eight attendees need their own laptops. This class is beginner-oriented, but we cover some different things every month; repeat attendees are encouraged (when there’s room)!

Take care everyone, and may your holiday be warm and joyful, spent surrounded by the ones you love!!
