Most Popular Chrome Extensions for 2012

A lot of stuff will make the Chrome Browser even better.  Take a look at this Lifehacker article.  I keep trying the new IE10, but Chrome is still the best for me.

The Phoenician

We experienced brunch at the Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale this past Sunday. A very beautiful place in the desert. I expect it would be quite nice in warmer weather. I took a few HDR shots (wish I had my tripod). This picture is of The Canyon Suites lobby looking out the back door on to an almost-real desert view. Other pictures can be found my clicking on this one. Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

New Google+ Community

We've created a new Google+ community named "The Old Computer Geek Group".  Presently it is a private group, so you must have an invitation to join.  We want to keep it for the residents of Gold Canyon RV & Golf Resort.  If you have not yet received an invitation (those of you with Google+ access, and have attended a meeting, should have received an invitation) - please call or email me with your request.

You can learn more about Google+ Communities here -  I hope this can be the vehicle to provide an online forum for computer-related information.
