They'll keep trying till they drive you coo coo - or until you stop them. It's the scoundrels' robo calls. They often get so bad we begin to think they are unstoppable.

Mark Jones, Kim Komando's researcher, takes a good look at this problem and comes up with four neat solutions including: Nomorobo, Truecaller, Hiya - Caller ID & Block, and Call Control - Call Blocker. Some of these resources come without cost, some cost a pittance and others are free to try - with a small donation to continue using.

For example, the Hiya app identifies and blocks robocalls, telemarketers, and fraudulent calls like IRS scams. It can also identify unknown spam callers in real-time, so you always know who's calling. It is currently on the house.

This research will help you from getting coo coo from the rascals.

Want to plan a trip without staying up for a week before worrying about catching the flu?

The good folks from USA Today reported on an interesting research study done at Atlanta's Emory University. If you want to fly and minimize your chances of getting sick, "-- get in that window seat and don't move," the study reported.

Although the study had certain limitations, the researchers did some mathematical modeling and computer simulations to find out how likely people were to come close to a hypothetical infectious passenger sitting in an aisle seat on the 14th row of a single-aisle airplane. They concluded that on average, only one person on a flight of about 150 passengers would be infected.

Probably some good advice here.

Trick 1

If you are like many people we know, you have two thousand digital photos and have a lot of trouble finding the one you want now - now. They are all over the place - on your phone - and in twelve different folders on your computer. You may even have a bunch in the cloud - on your Facebook site - or on a mini disk that's driving a moving slide show on your living room side table.

At this great place, a Certified Photo Organizer shares how to take steps to prevent your memories from getting lost, deleted, or forgotten because they're not organized or backed up. The reality is that we can't back up our photos if we don't have them organized in a specific place. If we fix that, backups are all of a sudden more likely to happen.

Although this project may take some effort it will pay off in a great sense of satisfaction from knowing you have your photos well organized and easily retrievable.

It's all at this great place.
