Agenda For April 2017
April 7 -
Noe Garcia is coming to talk to us. Noe is a
friend of Asa Watanabe, who suggested we invite him. We will
be learning a lot about networks and what goes on behind the
click. His company specializes in building and maintaining
networks which are then controlled by the owners. These are
enterprise solutions but Im sure we will better understand
what makes a network do what is expected. Our home networks,
even if its only two printers connected to our computers
as well as the Internet, have a myriad of things going on
before we get the output we are expecting.
A bigger issue is the network we are hoping to access as
fast as possible called The Internet of Things.
Other than the obvious security issues, what can we do to
have better results? We just might get some tips which will
be of help. This will be an interesting evening with information
we dont usually have the pleasure of receiving.
April 18 - Various
Medical Devices with Daisy Kuhn
This is a rather strange title, I know, but of all the devices
Daisy Kuhn has had experience with, I dont know
which to emphasize in the title. If you have been a member
for awhile, you know Daisy. She has been an active
member for almost 20 years. I do want to mention that Daisy
is also a retired professor, having taught at CSUN.
I remember back when we first started making more use of
the Internet, probably about the time AOL was sending out
all those CDs, Daisy was so pleased to be able to read
a local newspaper online before her sister received her paper
copy - in Germany! Also, most of us had just heard some commercials,
or more likely just seen some ads, from Microsoft
about something new called a Surface. We wondered,
what is a tablet? Then we had a meeting and we all saw one:
Daisy had already purchased one and loved showing it to
For her presentation, though, she is going to talk about
medical devices with which she has had experience; from then
to now, maybe how they have developed.
You dont want to miss what she has to share with you.
April 25 - Dining
Guys from Italy
16915 San Fernando Mission
Granada Hills, CA 91344
It's located a few doors south of our meeting room, at the
corner, in the same complex.
This being the fourth Tuesday of the month, it is time for
us to dine together. And what can be better than going to
one of our favorite restaurants, Two Guys from Italy.
They have a varied menu with, obviously, the emphasis being
on Italian dishes. But there are delicioussalads
to please those who may not want the pasta dinners, as well
as sandwiches and soup. They are a generous donor who pays
at the end of the evening. Try to come as the number of
guests is always an influence as to whether we can return.
Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present
it when ordering.
Look forward to seeing you. Remember to invite friends
and family to come as well. Most
get there between 5 & 6 p.m.
Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through
the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant
time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you
informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.
Please note: Dining events will
be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will
accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the
second Tuesday each month.
There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury,
assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite
someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know
about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work
with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is
surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in
this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers
who otherwise wouldnt be there!
