My favorite Files not updating from list...

When I checked My Favorite files a couple days ago, I noticed that Trader Joe's and Ford Dealerships had updated (Dated Dec 2) but I didn't have the check mark on them as 'new'.

Yesterday, I noticed that Aldi also was new (Dec 3) but again,there was no check mark on that file as 'new'.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – December 2015

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

GPS and Alzheimer's

My wife has a problem with spatial navigation -- she gets lost readily. I've just bought her a Garmin automotive GPS for our car, hoping that might help. Anyhow, I was just doing some background reading, and I ran across an article that I thought might interest you all. It's about a conjectured link between use of GPS devices and loss of cognitive function in old age.

I-10 Detour southeast of Tucson

The westbound brisge over Davis Canyon, southeast of Tucson, along I-10 will be replaced soon. Westbound traffic will be subject to a 67 mile detour and about a 2 hour increase in travel time.
Not sure when this will begin or how long it will take.
