Work Across the State and Across the Country, in One Day!

What a day last Tuesday was! We gave two seminars: one at 10am and one at 10pm; the first one in Sarasota, Florida and the second in Laguna Woods, California!

We were staying at the Thousand Trails, Peace River and had to get up and be on the road by 8 in order to get to Sarasota to deliver a 10am presentation to the MiceKTeers computer club. I hate to leave any place that early - but I always hate to leave the beautiful Peace River.

Had a good group for our Google Photos / Picasa Seminar for the MiceKTeers Computer Club in Sarasota.

Sarasota is on the west coast of Florida. On Wednesday we're booked at a computer club in Port St. Lucie which is on the East Coast of Florida, so, after the Sarasota gig, we got back in the RV and drove across the state. This time of year in Florida, you need reservations if you expect to get a site at an RV park, and we didn't even try. We found an Elks Lodge in Port St. Lucie who said, sure! We have room in the field out back. No hookups, but it was a nice field overlooking a pond and it had GREAT Internet service from a Verizon tower right next door.

That was important because we were booked to give another Google Photos presentation on Tuesday night ... in California! We used Google Hangouts On Air to deliver the seminar remotely and, it went great. Their meeting was at 7pm - Pacific Time, which meant 10pm our time. Whew! What a Day!
Photos sent to us from the Laguna Woods, CA club where we did a remote seminar on Google Photos
Because we used Google Hangouts On Air, the whole seminar was recorded on Youtube.



It's a good thing we love what we do! And do we ever!

Sat in on yesterday's WDTBD. Love the set. Snowed in Wash DC. Cancelled flight. ATL bound. Google hangouts has its advantages.

Who would ever wanna leave Peace River? But you can always go back there, right? Anyway, gonna watch the remote seminar you did now, might pick up on some useful information there. Thank God for technology.
