You’ve heard about the the volunteers on Sunday mornings at 10 am at the Roadhouse who pack and deliver lunches for Chatham seniors and others in temporary need…

For this Sunday, December 21, we would like to be able to send a small Christmas / Holiday gift with each lunch. Remember how fun it is to receive a surprise? Does that sound like fun to you?

Subject: Renovation Recommendation

I would like to give a shout out to Andy Jones with A and M Painting and Construction. He and his team did a phenomenal job renovating a bathroom in our 1930’s home. It was not an easy job given the age of our house yet they exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend them. You can reach Andy at: Aandmjonespainting@yahoo.com

Looking for “Santa” recommendations

Subject: Looking for “Santa” recommendations

Merry Christmas chatlisters ..

I am preparing a few donation computers to be donated to needy families for Christmas.

Given the dismal economy, I am specifically looking for families that do not have a computer in the home and could use a refurbished donation computer from “Santa”.

I hate to have to even mention this, but in the past I have been given bogus information/requests directly from individuals looking to get something for nothing fraudulently . so if you know of someone in need, please send me your referrals.

Subject: Thank you!

I wanted to thank all of you who responded to my plea for help in finding a pet sitter over the holidays! I was amazed and touched by how many good people reached out with offers to help or suggestions of someone I might call. I talked with several wonderful, caring people and fortunately found a great match for my pets and their needs.

I think this is Chatham Chat at it’s finest. Thank you and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

Most likely source of data use is background processes on your PC

From: Mike Fox
Subject: Wireless advice

in reply to Susan Turner, if I understand you correctly you are using a cellular modem (or as Verizon calls it “jetpack”) to provide wifi Internet for your house?

If so the most likely source of data use is background processes on your PC. Examples include Windows Updates, cloud synching (for example Dropbox or maybe your Android device doing whatever the Android equivalent of icloud is), automatic backup programs in either a PC or your phone or both.
