Tips to Using the Internet

Presented by Joe Deitz, CKCS VP, SIG Leader and much more

'Just Google that' sounds easy but isn't always that simple. A lot of times you find your search comes up with the wrong stuff or just outdated information.

Joe Dietz will give tips using Google Chrome to find things on the internet, to exclude things from a search, to search for specific words or string of words. Handy things like the snip and sketch tool, the calculator, using the internet as a dictionary or thesaurus, and lots more will be demonstrated.

Joe has been a member/instructor at CKCS since 1996. He wears many hats. He serves as Vice-President on the board of directors and is an instructor for numerous classes and workshops. He also heads up the CKCS Digital Photography Special Interest Group.

Be sure to put this event on your calendar. You will be amazed how using these tips can make using the internet less overwhelming. Share the Zoom link with your friends and family members.

New Special Interest Group starting September 20 (at 7PM on ZOOM)

APPLE SIG - Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch

Starring Joe Dietz, Kurt Jefferson, Janet Cartmell and Brooke Thomas

Meetings are 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.

Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Steps to create your Kroger account:

  1. Go to the Kroger website at
  2. Put the mouse on Savings and Rewards to see the options
  3. Click on Kroger Community Rewards
  4. Scroll down until you see "I'm a Customer"
  5. Click on "View Details" to go to the Sign In screen
  6. Next, click on Create an Account
  7. Fill in the requested information (see note 1 and 2 below)
  8. Near the bottom of the screen click on Create Account

Note 1: You can go to most any email service website and create a new email address just for your Kroger account. Kroger will send you emails frequently and will offer the opportunity for receiving a lot of emails with coupons, etc.

Note 2: Not your email password, but create a new password just for Kroger.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!

Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
