Hello All,
Next Tuesday our focus is on computers.
I received an email from Mozilla Firefox that talks a bit about their Browser and security features. the address is included here; https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?tab=wm#inbox/135254a190cdbfc8
If you are interested check it out and we can dig a bit deeper into the features in Firefox.
For you photographers in the group I have what I think is a wonderful opportunity for us to show off our photographs. (Details will have to wait till Tuesday)
The attached picture has nothing to do with computers. I just thought this notice needed a picture to grab your attention.

Computer/Photography Group

Our next Photography meeting is on Tuesday at 10 am, January 10, 2012.
Attached are 3 pictures. I had some time to waste. I attempted to recreate the picture we all have seen of wine being poured into a glass. Well, it's a good thing I wasn't pouring wine because I sure would have wasted a lot of it. Don't ask if I had sampled wine before I tried this. On Tuesday I'll show you a video clip of how it should be done.
Our challenge theme is "GARDEN(S)". I know it is a challenge to show a good garden picture in January. Let's see what we can come up with.
If anyone has photography questions, write them down or send me an email and I or someone in the group can respond with an answer (in writing).
See you all Tuesday,
Oops missed!

Got it in this time.

Oops again!
