We are hoping the winds die down and the fires can be contained in the Chico and Malibu area. Our thoughts are with you.

We had a record reviewers meeting today and we did more training with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Overall, we are doing fantastic, but it has been a challenge with some files. All we can say is thank goodness for google and Adobe support. The records themselves are much easier to organize, the challenge is at times opening files and diagnostics. It is really amazing when you think about how different our process is now compared to when we had paper records. We are finishing our fifth month and overall we love this process.

Tracy is on vacation in Hawaii. Hope you are enjoying your time off. Our phones were out this am, please bear with us tomorrow as we catch up on communications. It was a building wide outage that we had no control over.

Love my Mac, actually I really appreciate all of my computers and programs, and phones and printers etc, etc. That is I love them when they work. Recently, I was so frustrated that my downloads were taking so long and I was blaming it on my internet provider, my server in the office etc when my son, who started using computers when he was a toddler, asked me if I ever clean up my computer. What?? I had Word documents and downloads on there from eons ago. He pointed out that I would never stand for that at the office or at home so why didn't I update and clean up my computer files? Good question. I envy the generation that has such a easy relationship with technology. My computer is now working much better.
