A Year to Remember
I am two weeks late with this anniversary article. The time just slipped past me. It's been an interesting year to say the least; a year since I started writing this column, and a year in my new computer business. With all of its challenges, I am grateful and feel blessed.
I wanted to take time to thank all of you who have read my articles this last year and thank the Shopper for all of their wonderful support, advertising and encouragement. The flowers they gave me to mark the occasion were a wonderful surprise!
Starting a new endeavor is always stressful. I am so grateful for those of you who have given me your business this past year. I know that I had-- and still have-- big shoes to fill. Each of your calls for computer help has been unique and challenging. I have learned so much this past year, and I know I will continue to do so.
Thank you all for your support, have a great week!

Computer FAQ GAL
I’ve lived in the Randle area for the past 20 years, moving here from Kent in 1999 to get out of the city life and never looked back. I have three children, my oldest daughter lives in Seattle and the younger daughter and son live in Randle. I’m blessed with three beautiful grandkids.
I started working with computers in the early 80’s when I worked at the Air Traffic Control Center (FAA) in Auburn, WA. I worked there for 12 years and eventually ended up in the computer lab overseeing new Air Traffic Control students doing their required computer training. From there, I took a job with Boeing in their Computer Based Training department developing the computer training materials that airplane customers receive when they buy Boeing’s planes. Except for a few Boeing layoffs and re-hires, I worked there until 2015 when our department was disolved and the work moved elsewhere to save money.
Since leaving Boeing I have worked at a variety of jobs in the valley. While working at Fischer’s Market I met Robert. After he learned of my computer background he told me he was wanting to retire at some point and was looking for someone to work with him and possibly pass the torch to. For the past 6 months or so I’ve been working as his assistant and learning his business. On March 31, I officially purchased ComputerFAQ from him and am very excited to continue his work.
