THIS WEEKEND!! 
McDonough GA

This Saturday is the monthly Moose Lodge line dance event in McDonough.  This monthly event is NORMALLY held on the second Saturday of each month from 7 PM to 10 PM….. 
Cost is now $7!!  (Exact change is appreciated).

NOTE:  The Moose Lodge has a polished concrete floor, so wear shoes accordingly as it does not slide like a wood one does but sure is better than vinyl tile.  Dancers "Foot Tubes" are available for purchase from Tommy and Lynn Bailey at the MOOSE.  

Lynn Bailey runs a list at the front, so it is your opportunity to request old and favorite ones, (bring the music if you have it just in case). 

The dance area is SMOKE FREE.   There is a bar and you can purchase drinks at the Moose.

The Henry County Moose Lodge is located just off Georgia 155, west of I-75. For those wanting to look it up on Map Quest or Google Map or put it in your GPS, the technical address is:
91 Hunter Chase
McDonough, Georgia 30253

Take either I-675 or I-75 south of I-285 to the 5th exit below where 675 and 75 merge.  The Exit on I-75 is 216 which is Georgia Route 155.  This is the southern of the McDonough exits. At the bottom of the ramp, turn right toward Griffin, (Ga-155 south).   There will be a Quality (formerly Holiday) Inn on your right as you come off I-75.

Follow Ga-155 for about a mile and turn RIGHT into the entrance to the "Hunters' Run" subdivision on your right. You MUST turn into the subdivision entrance street to get to the driveway for the Moose Lodge. The Lodge drive does not connect directly to Ga-155.

Once inside, follow the hall around to the right to the rear of the building for their ballroom. Come on down and give it a shot...

If you are coming from the Loganville - Lawrenceville or Grayson area, get on Georgia 20 going south and follow this through Conyers, Magnet, and into McDonough.  Once in McDonough where Ga-20 goes right, (toward the square) you keep going straight so watch the signs and stay on Ga-155 south.  This will circle around and once you go under I-75, you will see the Quality Inn on your right and the directions above will apply.

SUBJECT:  STACY HAS UPDATED THE "DANCE WHERE" LINK ON THE SITE:

PLEASE checks the classes and clubs that are listed in the area where you live and let Stacy know by filling out the little form whether there should be changes, deletions, or corrections.  Please really use this link when they travel or move and she can only keep it correct and current with everyone's help.  Just click on the link, go to your city/state/country and see if the listings are correct or if you are in a class that isn't listed.  Perhaps your instructor doesn't get the newsletter (and you need to tell them to get it by sending me an email to tkandr@aol.comand I'll add them.  LOL) or times and days have changed.  It will only take a second to check and Stacy and I would REALLY appreciate it.  Be sure and do it through the form, though, because that goes directly to her.  Thanks a bunch.

Thinking of Stem-Cell for those aching knees……Something to consider….

Two Very Important Updates  (and some self-serving smaller ones)

Apple Updates
Apple has released iOS 13 for your iPhone and will be releasing it for the iPad shortly.  DO NOT UPDATE TO iOS 13.  Apple loves to have it's customer base be final beta testers.  They are notorious for having a very buggy first release.  Please wait for iOS 13.1 to arrive Tuesday, September 24th.  Upgrade your devices at that point.

AT&T & Bellsouth Email Updates
Yahoo (using an email address ending in Yahoo.net) has sent out a mass email that if you don't make changes immediately, your emails will no longer work in some applications.   This looks like a request to add O-AUTH passwords to programs like Outlook, Windows Live Mail, and old versions of Mac Mail.   It doesn't impact using a web browser or Windows Mail (Windows 10's built in program) and recently updated Apple or Android devices.  My recommendation here is to not do anything and if it breaks, call me, because I assume that we've already done what we've needed to do here.

Used Laptops for Sale
I have two refurbished Dell Latitude E6440 laptops for sale.   They are business-grade 14.1" dockable laptops.  They have Intel i5 processors, 8 GB RAM, and a 250GB SSD, running Windows 10 Professional.  If you're not wanting to take your existing computer to Windows 10 and would rather take them to the Rainbow Bridge instead, let me know.  These are $400 each and negotiable if I get antsy and can't sell them.  Costco has a new HP discounted to $479+tax with similar specifications.   So using new math, save $142 with current pricing.

House-calls
I still make house-calls.  Keep me on speed dial.

Thanks, as always!
