lush green and there is new growth everywhere.We had a good 8.5 K walk.

Hello All,
Next Tuesday is Photography. I have found a great little tutorial that explains different ways of capuring motion. We will go through the various techniques by looking at the attached pictures.
You can see the source of this by clicking on the long URL noted below.
This comes from the Digital Photogragraphy School website
And here is another URL that is not about motion but is a very interesting technique to try: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3372332&postcount=11
See you all Tuesday at 10 am.
We are into warm weather (sort of). How about it, lets make that snow on our banner picture disappear. Does anyone have a picture appropriate for Spring?

What a great day for our walk, some one must be looking out for us. We walked the trail through the park across the road from the Legion I don't know the name of the park, anyway up to Mt Baldy road then back Silvester rd. No one gave me the mileage but I'm guessing 8 k , then back for coffee, We signed up some for the Shawnigan Walk 28 May, but our $15.00 has to be in by the end of April, If any one would like to walk with us please contact me 250 743 3107 [Denis], Next week we will be hiking Mattison Lake and having lunch at My Chosen Cafe.

Our session on April 12 will focus on computers.
First, I would like to talk about the mouse on the computer. How do we programme our Mouse(mice)? We will go to the Control Panel and see what options we have. What are the benefits of a wireless mouse? What about the touchpad on your laptop?
We will also talk about Picas, Gmail accounts and the Blog.
And, of course discuss any particular concerns or questions you have. Maybe even answers.
