    PHIL brought up the ? about an ?AdobeFlash? dialog box requesting access to his hard drive for storage...
    His suspects it's a bogus attempt to load a virus.
    SOLUTION - go to FlashControlPanel turn off allow & restart.

    GOOGLE "leatherback turtle babies emerging" +YouTube to find the videos & enjoy!

    Bear with me, I'll eventually figure out what they want for HTML to appear correctly, BTW FWIW - I have searched at length through MEETUP.COM for a user manual - to no avail... ;-)

    OK, enough comedy - jokes...
    Here then, finally, is the member contributions et al.
    GaryB brought up this interesting fact that we should all be at least aware of if not pleasantly surprised by.
    Seminole County residents over the age of 60 may take classes at college, ie; Seminole State, for FREE!
    Class enrollment is preferential to paying students, of course, but Senior may still audit the class without credit with the instructor's permission. Rules & regs still apply as do class registration specifics, lab fees, materials, etc. What a great opportunity for us 'old folks' to get up-to-speed or explore new avenues...

    Here's a link to the statute & a senior student guide-
    <a href="http://www.aseniorcitizenguideforcollege.com/2010/06/florida.html"></a><p>;
    Here's a link to Seminole State's 2014 student registration -

    Apparently, I've lost the ability to place images inline so

    Howdy folks! Here's the breakdown for the July meeting last Tuesday night...
    So Sheila shared a hilarious cartoon that depicted how Microsoft invented the iPad - turns out, according to <u>the Daily Mail of London<u> in an article shortly after Steve's death, that during dinner with a Microsoft designer, Steve became so distraught over his claims that they were going to blow Apple away with a new tablet under development, he prioritized Apple's own plans to create the iPad. Better late than never, wasn't something Steve could live with, especially when it came to Microsoft...
    And so, while I couldn't find Sheila's cartoon, this one will have to suffice, as subtlety never suited Steve -
