Top Events in the Desert

Before I started my Computer and Gadget Education Business, I worked for Greg Jones who runs Desert Welcome, Locals Choice Printing and The Five Star Guide.  One of the techie things I did for him was a “Top Events of the Desert” e-newsletter.  I still do it for him every month.

Greg suggested that I send it to you and I thought, “What a great idea, why didn’t I think of that.”  So here it is. I hope you enjoy it.  Please forward it to everyone you think might be interested.
