Technology ~ Tips, Training, and a Tater Bar!

  • Feb 23, 2014 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

What do potatoes and technology have in common? Let's find out!


Are you interested in the new gadgets out on the market? Do you have questions about them? Would you like to try some of them out, hands-on, before you buy? 

Yes, there are tutorials on the Internet or salespeople at the department stores, but what are they telling/selling me? Do I speak their lingo? What am I really buying? How about we spend an afternoon sharing what we know while showing off our own gadgets? Technology: all varieties of computer and phones, readers, tablets of all sizes, TV's and cable, etc. 



We are asking ladies who have technology devices and gadgets to please bring them to share with the group. The host has wireless internet available. As time permits, ladies will be asked to stand and share a few minutes about their device and then take/answer questions. If you are having problems with your devices, bring them, perhaps someone in the group can help you! 

Now for the potato part. The host will supply the potatoes and we will all share in a Potato Bar. We can nosh on our creations while hearing about what is up in the world of technology. In the end we will find out the answer to our question: While potatoes and technology may not have a lot in common, we love them both!


Our host will supply:

A variety of potatoes, white and orange. Beverages (cold flavored tea, bottled water, and assorted soda).

Marcine will be providing her special Vegan Brownies for dessert.

Everyone is requested to bring a potato topping. Please post what you are bringing in the comment section below.

So far we have:

Marcine - vegan brownie

Barb - salad

Greta - olives and black beans

Mary Ann - Chopped Chives & Bacon Bits

Yvonna  - Salsa

Maria - Sour Cream & Butter

Dawn - $5 donation

Cathi - Velata Cheese 

Bethany - Sour cream & butter

Gina - steamed broccoli 

Judy - bacon bits

Kate - mushrooms

Whitney - dessert

Susan - shredded cheese

Robin - fat free toppings; sour cream, cheese. Also a pepper mixture.

 


Note: This event takes place in a private home. In order to attend, you must first meet the group at a public venue such as a Happy Hour or a morning coffee/lunch.

    So much for all my technology learning, I write a comment & it's gone! But what a wonderful, creative idea, Lezza, thanks for that & for hosting. So glad you went Kat, most of my questions were about Pinterest that YOU got me hooked on & now most others seem interested in now too! I loved the potato bar. I hope some of us didn't overstay our welcome Lezza, time flew. So nice to see your babies Gigi Missy!

    Great event. Thank you Lezza for coming up with this idea and for hosting! I think we all learned a few new things today!

    Leeza : Thank you so much for your hospitality, today. I ate too many girl scout cookies, though.

  • Whitney

    Lezza, Guess I will be running by the store tomorrow for a dessert. Let me know if you need anything I will stop on my way. I tried to make a Lemon Berry bundt cake, but it turned into a disaster. So sad :-(

    1 · February 22, 2014

    • Leesa

      Ok...

      February 23, 2014

  • Robin I

    We don't have it in the write up, but anyone who hasn't posted what they are bringing is welcome to make a cash alternative of $5.00. I forgot to put this option in the write up. Cash alternative goes into our Charity Fund.

    February 20, 2014

    • Dawn

      I will bring $5 instead of chili, unless you really want chili.

      February 21, 2014

    • Robin I

      Whichever is easier for you, I know you've been working crazy long hours lately.

      1 · February 21, 2014

    Looking forward to this, thanks Lezza for such a great idea!

    I am bringing black olives and black beans. Maybe someone could bring some fruit.

    February 20, 2014

  • Judylynn J

    Hooray. Someone from the wait list gets to attend. Darn. I was really looking forward to learning more about my gadgets. Have fun

    February 20, 2014

  • Susan

    Leeza, What can I bring? I'm not sure what else is needed.

    February 19, 2014

    • Greta

      Susan: Can you bring cheese? I will bring black olives. I think that I may not be coming straight from home to Lezza's house and I don't want cheese sitting in the car. If that's a problem, I can just stop at the store on my way. Thanks, Greta

      February 19, 2014

    • Leesa

      Thanks Susan for bringing shredded cheese.

      February 20, 2014

  • Maria M.

    I can bring sour cream and Bethany brings butter?

    February 20, 2014

  • Robin I

    We don't need two people bringing sour cream and butter - Bethany, Maria, perhaps one of you can change what you are bringing?

    February 20, 2014

    • Maria M.

      I can bring sour cream and Bethany butter?

      February 20, 2014

      I would like to get a good GPS app. Or if those apps are not good, I will look into getting a dedicated GPS. I've had issues with google maps providing bad directions.

      1 · February 19, 2014

  • Whitney

    I was hoping I would find something fun to bring, but nothing has hit me yet. Do you want me to bring some more dessert, drinks, etc. I'm up for anything.
