The Florida RV SuperShow asked us to present seminars in January. They requested, and we agreed, several months ago. We thought for sure the pandemic would be under control by January. As Covid started spiking, we expected them to cancel the show but they didn’t. We thought long and hard. We were only obligated for one hour each day, we could spend the rest of our time in our RV. We would wear masks at all times except when we were actually speaking. The show limited attendance at the
seminars and spaced the seating accordingly. We decided it would be safe enough, and we were feeling cooped up enough, that we went. It was FUN! How we’ve missed live audiences.
Other than Tampa, we were home. We did a couple “Button” Shows on YouTube (see below) and some members-only meetings on Zoom. We started a new tradition this month of holding a member orientation meeting over zoom. We will continue to do this on the last Friday of every month at 3pm Eastern time. We give a short tour of everything on our website, then open it up to questions. It was fun.

How to use your phone to watch movies on your TV – and stay under your data limits.
Many of us have data plans on our phones that have Unlimited on-device data. What that means is that, as long as you are viewing online media on your phone, you can view as many hours as you want. But, if you turn on the hotspot feature for your other devices to share that data, there are definite limits and associated charges.
Let’s say you want to watch a Netflix movie. Just pull it up on your phone and watch right? Oh, but it looks SO much better to watch and listen on your TV’s big screen. And, for more than one person to watch, the TV is necessary. If you use your Smart TV’s Netflix, it will need to connect to Wi-Fi and that will cost you. Or, if you cast your phone’s screen to the TV using something like Chromecast, that is still using WiFi. The answer is to connect your phone directly to the TV. This
article will tell you how.
