"Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship"
As Rick says to Louis in Casablanca, "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." That's how we're feeling here at Peace River. We attended our first staff meeting this morning. Jim's been 'working' 3 hrs/day for the last few days, helping people use the WiFi in the Adult Lodge. We gave our first seminar today with about 15 attendees. Pretty good for one day's notice. Debbie, the manager, came in and took a picture. I gave her my camera and she asked everyone to turn around and smile. One of the few photos where you see both Jim and me giving the seminar, because, usually I'm taking the photo. Thanx Debbie. This was our WiFi seminar which we offer for free. But, all the rest of our seminars, we're charging $15/person. We'll be giving 2 seminars a week all season long. Picasa, Blogs, Safe Computing, Google Earth, Email on the Road etc. We feel so at home here. I'm sure it's going to be a great season - I'll have the schedule posted soon. Our neighbors asked us over for happy hour this evening and there was one other couple as well. There was lots of great conversation and laughter. The other couple asked, "So, how long have you known Greg and Marilyn here?" ... Since they pulled in yesterday! Here's the flyer that's posted around the park about Jim's job.
