Gallery showcase: The Ayana Bath Caddy

Our friend Ms Lady Goats has done it again!  She literally built this fine friend the day it posted!  I adore the color, and I’m pretty fond of the final use for it, that she settled on…

What would you use it for?

I was thinking this would be fabulous for my own personal needs to make it a tad wider and use it for filing and paper!

Manteca paramedic rescues brother in Sierra

OAKDALE - Troy Hawkins has been a paramedic with Manteca District Ambulance for eight years, but his most dangerous and heroic rescue came off-duty last week.

New to snowmobiling, Hawkins took up the sport to join his older brother, Travis Hawkins, and his family for a trip at Sonora Pass.

"I had worked a three-day, 60-hour shift, and I was sick with a headache," said Troy Hawkins. "I really wanted to delay going up there, but something told me I needed to go that day."

After his arrival at the Dardanelle Resort, Troy and his brother's family set up snowmobiling. At 2 p.m., the family started heading back in advance of a quickly approaching snow storm. That's when avid snowmobiler Travis hit a stake and flipped his snowmobile down a steep incline.

"I looked down the side and saw my brother 30 yards down with the snowmobile rolled over," said Troy.

 It's a rare event -- a total eclipse of the moon. And even rarer is an eclipse that take place during the winter solstice on December 20. It meant that the moon was glowing high in the sky during the eclipse overnight.

Are Facebook Promotions Getting an Update?

Looks like new Facebook Promotions guidelines may soon be released.

According to AllFacebook, an email sent out by Facebook sales representatives outlines the new rules.  In contrast to the old guidelines where promotions needed to be explicitly approved, promotions will no longer need prior written approval from Facebook. Basically, in regards to promotions, sweepstakes and contests on Facebook:

  • They no longer require prior written Facebook approval to administer a promotion on Facebook.

  • They no longer require a minimum media spend investment to support the promotion.
