Happy New Year! I trust you’ve all had a peaceful, relaxing first day of 2012… May this year bring you nothing but peace, joy, prosperity & light!

We’re back to the regular schedule this month, so there will be two Saturday classes and the regular Library Overview class. On to the details:
 On Saturday, January 14th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will again be offering my popular iPhoto class. Come learn everything there is to know about Apple’s amazing digital photo organization/editing program. it will be a great way for you to accomplish that new year’s resolution to get your photo library under control, as well as learn how easy (and fun) the process can be! I will be covering both the latest version (iPhoto ’11) as well as the previous (’09) version. Cost is $20.
 Then, on Saturday, January 28th, from 10 a.m. to noon, I will be covering Apple’s amazing Pages program. In this class you will learn how to master their formidable word-processing/page layout program, which just happens to be a good deal more user-friendly (and fun to use) than Microsoft Word! Cost is $20.
***The above classes are held in the small meeting room at Ridgway Town Hall, and are open to drop-ins, with no sign-up necessary***
Then, don’t forget…
 The regular FREE “Overview of Mac OS X” class, which takes place on the last Wednesday of the month. This month it will be Wednesday, January 25th from 5-7 p.m. These overview classes are held in the computer lab at the Ridgway Library. There are only eight seats available, 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).
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)!
As always, let me know if there’s something else you’d like me to consider covering in the Saturday sessions.
