Algonquin girl becomes face of national parks

Algonquin girl becomes face of national parks | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
Aida Frey knew she wanted to be a park ranger ever since her first visit to a national park. Three years later, the 13-year-old from Algonquin has visited 163 national parks and historic sites with her family, and earned about 300 badges, pins and medals as part of the National Park Service's Junior Ranger program. "I don't have a favorite because each national park is special in its own way," she said.
Marianne Riddile's insight:

That is totally impressive.

Personal Disaster Averted

Personal Disaster Averted | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
This is the picture of a charred and melted wire nut from the 20 Amp microwave oven circuit in my motorhome. Fortunately when it burned up it was inside a metal junction box so nothing caught on fire. The junction box was under the bed, so the potential for a disaster was very great. My repair guy said that all wire nuts in a motorhome should also be taped to keep them from jiggling loose. --Motorhome Momma

Marianne Riddile's insight:
Missing from the list: Corky's in Tennessee and Rocklands in the DC area. Two of the best barbecue places I have eaten. We always get Rocklands over Red, Hot and Blue. These two are not national chains though. You can order from Corkys and have it shipped in a cold pack.

#AskJeffTech: How to print from an iPad

Printing from your iPad
Marianne Riddile's insight:
If you are interested in this, you may not be able to print through a public WIFI because the router will not give you access. You might be able to print via a printer shared off your laptop or via a local router attached to the printer. There is a forum under "support" on the Apple website where you can seek additional solutions. If you buy a printer, make sure you can return it if it does not work.
