Storm Clouds or Sunshine on the Horizon Wed Jan 25

From the DRYA:
We all know the Michigan joke: Wait ten minutes and the weather will change. But, what if it changes while you are out enjoying the day or in a race? WJR Weather personality, John McMurray will explain how to read Mother Natures signs and be prepared for any weather conditions that she throws your way while out on the Great Lakes.

His talk will be at Bayview Yacht club located at 100 Clairpointe which is the extension of Conner south of Jefferson. Their phone number is 313-882-1853

The Seminars are developed with the novice and recreational sailor in mind. These weekly seminars are designed to introduce the sport of sailing to non- sailors and to broaden the knowledge of newer sailors. They are free and open to the public. One need not belong to a club or the DRYA to attend. All Seminars start at 7:00 PM

Editors note: Even though the seminars are aimed at novices, many experienced sailors show up just to talk about sailing on a winter night at a nautical site..

Back Issues

Past issues of the Peggy Jo studio are

"No love of the natural heart is safe unless the human heart has been satisfied by God first"

Oswald Chambers

"A fool gives full vent to anger, but a wise person quietly holds back."

Proverbs 29-11

This newsletter is sent out each Monday morning and covers events of interest to active people . It attempts to publicize worthwhile events that do not receive adequate media attention.


I wonder why it is that we are not all kinder to each other than we are. How much the world needs it. How easily it is done!

Henry Drummond

A good crowd showed up at Gino's Surf for brunch on Sunday the 15th. Due it's success, we can look forward to two more opportunities to meet old and new friends at a brunch. Watch for the future dates.

Bill Churill who planned the event, provided flowers for the ladies to take home.

Frank and Dorothy Nazar are the new owners of Gino's and they have many plans to improve the services such as building docks for visiting boats and parking a yellow submarine next to the restaurant. Look forward to lots of new events ther.

Get well wishes to Marlene Solomon. She wants to be discharged from the hospital early this week

Who's on First

From my email If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch, "Who's on First?" might have turned out something like this:

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou.
ABBOTT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou.
ABBOTT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOTT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
ABBOTT: Wallpaper.
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals and track expenses and run my business. What do you have?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOTT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOTT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
ABBOTT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let's just say I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?
COSTELLO: What word?
ABBOTT: Word in Office.
COSTELLO: The only word in office is office.
ABBOTT: The Word in Office for Windows.
COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?
ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue "W".
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue "w" if you don't start with some straight answers. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: That's right. What do you have?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: What's bundled with my computer?
ABBOTT: Money.
COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?
ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
ABBOTT: One copy.
COSTELLO: Isn't it illegal to copy money?
ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.
COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?

(A few days later)
ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?

    If you are an experienced computer user, pass this on to someone who is struggling. We will explain the 21st century Abbott & Costello routine from above.

    This course is directed to the beginner and also those who have been using their computer with frustration because they have leap-frogged the basics. The less one knows the better! It will be conducted in a question and answer mode after some basic terminology and concepts are explained. Students will work online with computers connected to the Internet. Students will be invited to bring their laptops if they are equipped with wireless access otherwise they will use a computer on site.

    We will teach you how to use your computer to do what you want to do. We will expose you to the power of the Internet but we will not overwhelm you with information you do not need to know to perform your tasks.

    The course will start by explaining some of the terms used in the information technology field and will answer individual studentís questions about these terms

    The various browsers and their similarities will be demonstrated. We will even teach you what a browser is! The different email programs will be discussed with the students using their own programs

    Students will learn how to send and receive email, add attachments, add photos and organize their mail and their contacts

    They will also learn how to browse the web, select favorites or bookmarks.

    Ebay and other auction sites will be explored and the questions that the students ask will drive the content of the course.

    The class will be conducted in the computer laboratory of Global Information Technology located at 28600 Southfield Road, in Lathrup Village just south of 12 mile road on the east side of Southfield.

    The class will meet on Tuesday February 7, from 2:00 PM til 4:00 PM, Tuesday February 14 from 2:00 PM til 4:00 PM and on Tuesday February 21 from 2:00 PM till 4:00 PM
