Finally El Nino might be here. As I write this column, we are expecting a good storm on Sunday the 1st. I hope so. After the last storms, I went out and dug around in the garden and was disappointed that not very far down the earth was still pretty dry. Rain! We want rain! I hear the snow pack is almost normal but still not enough. It’s never enough. Oh, well, we’ll take what we can get.

Winter so far has been something of a bust. The weatherman says, “Don’t despair; El Niño could make March and even April very wet.” We had a good rain last night so maybe they are right. I’m beginning to think about spring. The days are getting longer. and that always makes me happy. I love light.

Last month's program was by Toby and Mike. They talked about OneNote. I am really beginning to use it a lot. I learned a lot more than I knew but am still struggling to make it work for me. Just this morning I deleted a folder when I only wanted to delete a page. Maybe you can’t do that. So much to learn. I thought by now I’d know most of what I need to, but every day is a learning experience of some kind.

Yesterday Andy and I attended yet another celebration of life. This is happening way more often than I like. I will be 70 in September; that clock is ticking way too fast. I have way more that I would like to do and accomplish before I pass into the great beyond. I hate to spend that precious time learning instead of doing. It seems that in this day and age in order to do anything we have to learn something new first. I still haven’t synced my new smart Windows Phone with my Honda’s phone system. Maybe later today.

I don’t mean to complain; life is good. In fact, life is very good.
’til next we meet.
Lisa Toth, president

Happy computing!
