Verizon News Update: Disappointing news about our newest benefit

06/21/2017 5:00pm EST

Hello Members,

We thought today was going to be a day of celebration. As you’ll read in the July of Family Motor Coaching magazine, our expectation was that we would be opening the doors to the latest and greatest member benefit – unlimited, on-the-go internet access at a great price for all FMCA members.

Unfortunately, despite months of negotiations, approvals and green lights, the provider (Verizon) pulled the plug at the last second. Magazines had been printed, pre-announcements tested, and the staff was standing by for the flood of enrollments.

For more background on how this situation unfolded, see the post here.

We are very sad. And disappointed. We were so excited to bring you this program because we know how important staying in touch – with reliable access – is while you’re on the road.

Please don’t give up on us. After the unexpected cancellation by Verizon, we’re dusting ourselves off and getting back in the ring. We promise to keep working to bring you benefits of value and quality – the kind of service you expect from your RV family.

Thanks for understanding. And keep having fun – because that’s what FMCA is all about!

Dear Members,

Welcome to the FMCA family!

Ordinarily I wouldn’t write to a new member before we’ve even processed your enrollment, but this has been an unusual week around FMCA.

Last week we launched what we believed was going to be an awesome new benefit exclusively for FMCA members.  After all, our members are on-the-go motorhome owners and want to stay in touch while they travel! We’ve even heard that some people signed up for membership just to gain access to the Verizon unlimited on-the-go internet service.

But then, despite months of negotiations and approvals, Verizon unexpectedly pulled the plug.

If the Verizon benefit was your only reason for joining and you want to cancel your membership, just email membership@fmca.com and we’ll take care of it.  

But before you go ...

... Consider staying on as a member.  Our president always ends his letters with “It’s all about having fun” and that’s the truth!  FMCA members enjoy lots of great benefits designed especially for motorhome owners, but it’s more than that – it’s about being part of the best community of RVers you’ll ever find.

And speaking of benefits – FMCA membership includes a best-in-class travel assistance service, money saving deals on tires, great member-only content, and many more deals, discounts and services for motorhome owners.

 

Thanks for your consideration.  Remember – It’s all about having fun!

Motorhomers can edit photos using Picasa. 
Motorhomers can improve their pictures using Picasa. 
I received an e-mail from someone asking me what  type of camera I use, because he likes the pictures in our blog so much. I do get compliments on my photos often – thank you! But, I answered him the way I answer all the others: “Yes, I have a good digital SLR camera (Canon Digital Rebel), but I believe what makes the difference is just a few seconds spent with each photo in Picasa!”

The picture of the split rail fence was in one of my recent blog posts and is one of my current favorites. It was taken in a city park in Winterset, Iowa. The main attraction of this park is a covered bridge. I like taking photos of things that aren’t the main attraction. This is just an old fence and a big tree trunk off in a corner of the park.

I liked the picture right from the camera.  But I really liked it after four clicks in Picasa …

1. I’m Feeling Lucky – this is a one-click automatic color and contrast adjustment. I click on this with every picture. If I don’t like what it does, I just click on Undo. I liked what it did on this photo.

2. Sharpen this is on the Effects tab. Right now, you have to hold down on Shift as you click it to see the results.

3. Saturation – this is a button on the Effects tab. Just one click and it applies an automatic amount of saturation – you can adjust the amount with the slider -- and then click Apply.  Saturation means more color. Just like adding another coat of paint. Saturation makes your picture richer and brighter. Not always something you want, but you can Undo if you don’t like it.

4. Shadows – this is a feature on the Tuning tab. I just moved the slider to the right a tiny bit. It does exactly what it says … increases the shadows. For this picture, I think it made it richer.

So, that’s it. I spent no more than four seconds on this photo to turn it from a nice picture to a really nice picture. Click “upload” and now it’s on the Web to share.
