        July Meeting
        When:  July 15, 7:15PM
            Where:  Randi's
            What:  International Potluck
            RSVP:  Randi
        Randi says "The meeting as you know is at my house on July 15 at 7:15 pm.  We are going to
        have an international Pot Luck.  Everyone needs to RSVP and let me know what dish and
        from what country the dish is from so we don't have a million desserts and no main dishes,
        etc.  Also I was thinking it would be nice if people could e-mail the recipe to (Ginny, prior to
        the meeting so that she could) put in the next newsletter or on the LM web page because
        everyone is always asking for the 'good' recipes and people could then access the ones they
        want online.  Also,... everyone (is) to bring their high school yearbook and put a tab on the
        pages they want others to look at so we can all have a good laugh!

July Newsletter Addendum

Surprise Baby Shower for Grandma Joan

Kendra Nichole Wilson
June 7, 1999

       Sharon suggested we have a shower for Joan's grandmotherhood. It will be SURPRISE!!
       Bring something wrapped to the July meeting at Randi's. Joan can open it, and then Sharon will
       box it up and mail to Greg and his family. It can be baby supplies, clothes, toys, whatever. Just
       a little reminder to Greg that he has a Las Madres family still here in San Jose. It has been a
       while since we had a shower (Claire will be 7 soon), so this will be fun. If you can't come
       and want to give a gift, try to get it to someone before the meeting. That way it can get into the
       box to mail, and Joan can open it then.

Remember: This is a SURPRISE!

   Greg's 50th Birthday Party

        Dee says, "The Roesslers, Rasmussens, Pitchers and Wilsons came to Greg's 50th birthday
        party on June 26, and we spent a wonderfully relaxing evening sitting around the "campfire".
        By the light of an almost full moon, and tiki torches, we enjoyed our two favorite LM activities
        - eating and talking.  (Thanks to these very generous friends, $50 will be donated to the Wish
        Book in Greg's honor)."


        Brett Nevoli will be attending Evergreen Valley College and continue working at Save Mart.

        Jacob Verhoeven will be joining the Navy as a hospital corpsman in February.  In the meantime he will be attending a semester at either West Valley or DeAnza College.

        KIDS' KORNER

        Congratulations to Denise Heinrichsen for having a very successful semester.  She placed 2nd

        chosen to be in Who's Who for American High School Students and earned straight A's on
        her report card.

        A Poem by an Old Timer

        A computer was something on TV
        From a science fiction show of note.
        A window was something you hated to clean....
        And ram was the cousin of a goat.....

        Meg was the name of my girlfriend
        And gig was a job for the nights
        Now they all mean different things
        And that really mega bytes

        An application was for employment
        A program was a TV show
        A cursor used profanity
        A keyboard was a piano

        Memory was something that you lost with age
        A CD was a bank account
        And if you had a 3 " floppy
        You hoped nobody found out

        Compress was something you did to the garbage
        Not something you did to a file
        And if you unzipped anything in public
        You'd be in jail for a while

        Log on was adding wood to the fire
        Hard drive was a long trip on the road
        A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
        And a backup happened to your commode

        Cut you did with a pocket knife
        Paste you did with glue
        A web was a spider's home
        And a virus was the flu

        I guess I'll stick to my pen and paper
        And the memory in my head
        I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
        But when it happens they wish they were dead!

Grab your blanket and be prepared to OHHHHHH and AHHHHHHH.
