Good Morning, ! Today we headed north from Willcox, AZ, via Safford. The part after Safford is a bit confusing, since it looks like a 2-bit country road at first, but eventually 191 turns into quite a decent highway. Next town is Clifton, a cute old mining town, and Morenci a truly awesome, world class copper mine. From Morenci straight north to Alpine is a hundred miles of pure fun for a curve carving, tire squealing adrenalin junkie, but probably sheer terror for timid drivers, and even worse for their passengers. When you see signs saying 15 MPH Motorcycles use extreme caution! then you know that hairpin is going to be a noisy squealer, and most likely followed by another squealer in the opposite direction. Needless to say, there are no trucks on that road, and very few cars. However, the pavement is excellent, and the scenery superb. This was my second, but by no means last time I drove that road. That road dipps into some valleys but is mostly up high, and some areas still had deep snow beside the road. Glow-bull warming is definitely over for this cycle. Also saw a bunch of white-tail deer beside the road. They kept a safe distance when I stopped and backed up to take pictures, but they didn't bolt into the forest. Past Alpine there was Blue Vista, a view point definitely worth stopping for. You look down over lower mountains and the foothills and the rolling prairies, and the view most definitely has a distinctly blue tinge. After we got down to lower altitudes, it was mostly just rolling prairies and fast, empty roads all the way to Holbrook. Have FUN! DearWebby

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Travis E. Conner III, 18 in Chicago Man charged after police track him through GPS in stolen taxi CHICAGO (STMW) -- A man is charged with robbery and aggravated vehicular hijacking after police found him at a gas station through the GPS in a stolen taxi cab. Travis E. Conner III, 18, of the 2900 block of West Fulton Street, is charged with one count of robbery and aggravated vehicular hijacking, according to a release from police News Affairs. Conner allegedly forced a taxi cab driver out of his taxi at gun point about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, the release said. He dropped his cell phone at the scene before fleeing in the cab, which is equipped with a Global Positioning System. Using the GPS, police found Conner at a gas station in the 6300 block of North Central Avenue, the release said. He was identified and a semi-automatic handgun was recovered. Conner is scheduled for a bond hearing Monday, the release said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Glenn re: How do I reclaim space used by Windows Live OneCare Backup Hi, Webby, thank you so much for all of your helpful insights into computer (usually) malfunctions. For several years I used Windows Live One Care, till a virus wiped it out. So of course now it doesn't work. I can't use any of the Microsoft programs to restore the backups I made with Windows Live "Screw Up". Nor can I delete the *** gigabytes of external hard disk space used by that useless backup program. I had to do the format recovery to save the hard disk, but have lost everything I saved on the computer. No backup with Windows. How do I remove all the read only memory protected files of Live One "Don't Care" on that external hard disk? Thanks, Glenn Dear Glenn I am not familiar with Windows Live One Care, and considering the reputation it has, I don't plan to become familiar with it. If you don't have other, good stuff on that drive, you can format it. However, if you just want to get rid of certain parts of it, you can go to that drive with the DOS command line and change the file attributes. Let's assume that drive is drive E: START RUN cmd e: attrib -R -A -S -H E:\*.* /D then you should be able to delete that folder, and with any luck subdirectories inside that folder. You may have to repeat that for subdirectories. Quite possibly One Care also set the back-up folder as a network folder, as if it was across a LAN network, instead of on the second drive or on the end of a USB cable, and took ownership of that fake networked drive, just as if that drive was on your Mother-In-Law`s computer at the other end of the house, and she was the only one with access to it. Find that back-up folder and select it. In the right click menu, select Sharing and Security. When the Sharing and Security tab of the Properties dialog comes up, place a check mark in the middle section - "Share this folder on the network." Give the Share a name in the box for "Share Name". And place a check mark in "allow network users to change files." If necessary, change the attributes again after you set the network permissions. Have FUN! DearWebby
Delta Airlines recently introduced a special half-fare rate for wives accompanying their husbands on business trips.Anticipating some valuable testimonials, the publicity department of the airline sent out letters to all the wives of businessmen who used the special rates, asking how they enjoyed their trip.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use Dawn Dish Soap as a Stain Remover I had a cat go on the carpet in my boy's bedroom. I was out of carpet cleaner, so I got an old tea towel. I made it wet with hot water and put Dawn dish soap on it. The stain came out and then I tried it on other stains in the room that I had already tried all kinds of cleaning products on that had never came out. The stains were gone and the carpet looks new again. I am going to use Dawn dish soap on all my carpet spills, and stains. With 3 kids, a dog and 2 cats I will always be needing it.

Jack's grandfather left him $10 million, and the next week Diane agreed to marry him. After three months of married life, Jack noticed that his beautiful new wife was ignoring him more and more. On the rare occasion that she would go to bed with him she would be indifferent, or even worse, called out other men's names! Whenever they went out in public, she ignored him and flirted with other men. Finally, he decided to confront her. "Diane," he said, "the only reason you married me was because my grandfather left me $10 million when he died." "Don't be ridiculous," she replied, "I don't care who gave you the money!"
