S5 Android Smartphone for Beginners Class
Invalid Image Link Do you have an Android smartphone and want to get more use out of it? Up for bid, is a series of three one-on-one hour-long classes to cover the basics of your Android smartphone.

It can be as basic as organizing your contacts, and changing your ringtone or a little more-advanced like using facebook and twitter on your phone.

We can go over setting up your smartphone, basic settings, installing/uninstalling apps on your phone like facebook and twitter, using the camera, using email, syncing pictures. We can't cover everything but we can certainly get you on your way to being smartphone-savvy!

I will sit down with the winner and discuss what you would like to get out of your smartphone and we can pick and choose the topics to be covered over our three classes. We will pick the dates and times that work out best for you.

Asheville, NC is a paradise for beer research. More than a dozen breweries there make microbrews, some of which are not even bottled (visitors drink the available supply)! John Bohstedt will lead a field trip on May 29-31, 2015. We will meet Friday at happy hour at a delightful pub in the River Arts district, and probably move on to one or two more. Saturday midday we will try to tour a bewery or two, then pub-crawl some that evening. Sidetrips to the Grove Park Inn definitely possible. Ingles grocery stores have beers you can't get in K-town. Sunday we will be escorted home by a pack of trained guard dogs (or not!). Participants will arrnge their own transport (carpooling is possible) and lodging. (We know the perfect place to stay.) We have room for 12 serious researches. Bidding starts at $30/person. We'll welcome designated drivers for free. Thanks to John Bohstedt.

F6 Tuscan 2014 Gold Series Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Here’s a chance to experience Apollo Olive Oil, an exceptional organic extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil from the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada. Over the years Apollo Olive Oil has won 32 gold medals, 23 silver medals, 7 best in class, and 6 best in show and has been chosen one of the top 10 olive oil producers in the world, the best organic olive oil in the US, and the best olive oil on the internet.
Apollo’s olives are grown and milled to produce oils as high in polyphenols and alpha-tocopherols as possible (the essential part of a Mediterranean diet) and they have a flavor unlike any olive oil I’ve ever tasted. They range in intensity from mild to strong.
Tuscan 2014 Gold Series Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil “has a robust intensity, with delicate sweet aromas and a zesty finish." Visit Apollo's site for recipe suggestions.
At the top of Apollo’s website is the quotation, "Wisdom demands a new orientation of science and technology towards the organic, the gentle, the non-violent, the elegant and beautiful." Sounds so very UU.
