2012 The Year In Review

                  2012 The Year in Review
Protecting Yourself, Your Computer and, Your indentity
It's been a fairly busy year in which I did 105 Presentations  for 5160 + attendees
Those attending the presentation came from various Computer Clubs through out the USA
and from the reception and feedback, many of those attending are now using avast!
I traveled almost 60 000 Miles and was able to see a great deal of this country.

My bags are packed and I'm ready to leave on the next adventure.
In January 2013 I'll be in Arizona and California.

Merry Christmas – Happy Holidays - Happy 2013

May the warmth of the Christmas season always be in your heart. May 2013 be a year of sharing with those who need a hand.  May the good Lord bestow his blessing upon you and this great land. May the new year bestow some wisdom on those that rule. May the good Lord teach all of us the golden rule. May the New Year be filled with much happiness and very little sorrow. May you always have a great tomorrow.

12-18-2012 Computer Club of Sun City

Yesterdays presentation was unfortunately cancelled.
I didn't find out about it till I made the trip to their club.
I was told this isn't the first time this has happened to a presenter and is the
reason why this club, staring next year, will not be a member of AZACC
I was able to take this picture last night of one of the houses that are ready for Christmas:

There are three presentations scheduled for today.
