Another Week

It was another week of fun activities starting with "Popkorn's" annual chocolate party.  Ron Johnson has this great chocolate fountain he drags out each year for this festival at his house.

Friends bring something to dip into the chocolate for sampling.


There's everything imaginable (pretzels, strawberries, assorted fruits, cakes, cookies, marshmallows, etc.) and even nice crispy bacon.  Yup.  Chocolate covered bacon.  Actually it tastes better than it sounds.  Thanks for the nice party Ron.
 
Mornings have been clear and calm so its common to see John Ross and his balloon taking off from the softball field and cruising overhead.  It's a fantastic view of our resort.  John and his friends will be flying 10 hot air balloons the weekend of the Cancer Awareness event in February.  They're still asking for volunteers to help with launching the balloons.  See the sign up sheets in Activities.
 

Something new was added this week.  Sam's Club sponsored a morning breakfast for us with free donuts and coffee on the fireside patio Monday morning.  There wll be another one Monday, December 15 at 8:00 a.m.  You must pick up your tickets in Activities so they have an accurate head count.  Seating is limited so don't wait too long to get your tickets.  It was kind of chilly that morning so seats close to the fire pits were highly desirable.  Dress warm.  It was a great chance to chat with friends and meet new people.
 
 
Ohhhhhh......I happened to see this beautiful hawk perched at the top of one of he palm trees near the north pool.  Isn't he a beauty?!!  This is the best photo I could get with just my cell phone.
 
 
Speaking of cell phones.....we're learning lots of new tips and tricks from Jim and Chris Guld (the Geeks on Tour).  They held a smart phone seminar Monday night and provided us with lots of new information.
 

Today they attended the Android group meeting and we learned even more.  We're all anxious to learn more about what these wonder machines can do for us.
 

Next upcoming classes will be:
 Dec 13 Sat, 10-12:  Make a free website with Blogger, Picasa, and Google+ 
 Dec 15 Mon 6-8:  Using Google Maps to Plan, Preserve, and Share your travels 
 Dec 20 Sat 10-12:  What is Cloud Computing? 

Watch for further announcements.
