    Topic: Investment Information Group

    The Investment Information Group meet on Friday afternoons for approximately 2 hours to exchange ideas and opinions on managing money and wealth. While many members have their own retirement portfolios professionally managed, we still dabble in investing or use the information garnered to share with our financial advisors and vice versa.   Our main focus is on stocks but discussions include reviewing economic data, looking at charts from various websites and discussing how this information might affect our own financial goals.   Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share ideas and experiences and discuss favorite stocks/investments.  Come join us.

    The Linux Special Interest Group (SIG) is a self-help group for folks interested in an alternative, open-source operating system with many free programs.  Because many newbies were Windows users, we use mainly Linux Mint because it can be set up similarly to Windows 7 or Windows 10, making their transition easier.  There are free applications of office suites, photo manipulation programs, most browsers, and such, so there are really no software costs associated with using Linux.  Lastly, it is quite secure by design, and no anti-malware software is needed.  New users will want to learn a bit about how to keep it secure, but that is primarily done with the initial set up, which we will help you with.  Linux will run fine on older computers, down to 2 gigabytes of RAM (memory) and 100 gigabytes of storage.

    Feel free to come and see if a new operating system appeals to you.
