Apologies to all who have seen our printed flyers. We just found out from a lovely lady in Topeka that we’ve been printing the wrong dates on the flyers! While we will have bonus pre-retreat activities on Sunday, October 2 for full package attendees – the 2 day retreat starts on Monday the 3rd. Please feel free to share the corrected flyer far and wide. A fill-able PDF format flyer is available at our website.FlyerPhoto

Keeping in mind shipping costs while setting a book’s price, many choose to send their mailings USPS Media Mail.  As with any class of mail, this one has some rules you may not be aware of.  One of which is that no billing invoice or advertisement may be placed in the box.  As always when sending through the post office, packing slip/inventory with arrival address is still encouraged.

When figuring pricing, remember shipping material costs.  If you choose to send your books via USPS Priority mail, you can order your boxes and tape free of charge directly from the post office online at http://www.usps.com.  Find the shipping materials area and the boxes, tape you need, the “price” is $0.00.  There are stipulations you’ll need to adhere to that are listed on their site including you must use these items for priority class only.

Consider joining (or starting) a computer support group. Genealogy, history, book, writing, etc. – they all have clubs, classes, and get-togethers – consider one that can help you with computers!

Always having trouble with your computer? Have you checked to see if there is a computer support group you can join locally? Our society has lots of different groups for lots of different interests and to solve problems. If there is not one in your area, look at banding together friends and family who have difficulties and successes. Not everyone will have the same problems, or the same successes. While you may always be asking your group questions, you might find yourself the “go to” person for general problems in a program you always work in.

Don’t be bullied into Windows Vista. Every new version of a program (or operating system) means change. Unfortunately, you will have to make a plan to eventually use the new system, but it doesn’t have to be today. On your “to do” list, research Vista online, check out a library book, schedule a “study date” with a friend who already has it (offer to bring the snacks), attend lectures or even an evening Vo-Tech class on the subject. Even if you need a new computer, you may be able to put it off until you’ve had a chance to make friends with the new Windows.
