Did you know???....

The Colorado Lottery has generated more than $2 Billion in proceeds for the people of Colorado.  This money is used to make our state a more beautiful & enjoyable place to live (as if it is not beautiful already!).  Lottery proceeds recipients are The Great Outdoors Colorado (state parks, public parks & recreation, Colorado Division of Wildlife & land conservation), under-funded school districts. 
I often forget to pick up a ticket, but it is fun when I remember.   Maybe some day I'll win it, but if that never happens it is great to know my dollar every now & then counts! 

Silly but usefull...

5 things you never knew your cell phone could do

All folks with cell phones. (This should be printed and kept in your car,

purse, and wallet. Good information to have with you.) There are a few

things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for

survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:


Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112. If you find Yourself out of

the coverage area of your mobile network and there is an Emergency, dial 112

and the mobile will search any existing network to Establish the emergency

number for you, and interestingly, this number 112 can be dialed even if the

keypad is locked. Try it out.


Have you locked your keys in the car?

Does your car have remote keyless

entry? This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone: If

you lock your keys In the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone

at home on their cell phone from your cell phone. Hold your cell phone about

a foot From your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock

button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock.

Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.

Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can

reach someone who has the other 'remote' for your car, you can unlock the

doors (or the trunk).

Editor's Note:

It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a cell phone!'


Hidden Battery Power

Imagine your cell battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#.

Your cell phone will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show

a 50% increase in battery. This reserve will get charged when you charge

your cell phone next time.


How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following Digits on

your phone: *#06#. A 15-digit code will appear on the screen. This number is

unique to your handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe.

If your phone gets stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them

this code. They will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief

changes the SIM card, your phone will be totally useless. You probably won't

get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't

use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in

people stealing mobile phones.

And Finally.....


Free Directory Service for Cells

Cell phone companies are

charging us $1.00 to $1.75 or more for 411 information calls when they don't

have to. Most of us do not carry a telephone directory in our vehicle, which

makes this situation even more of a problem. When you need to use the 411

information option, simply dial: (800)FREE411, or (800) 373-3411 without

incurring any charge at all. Program this into your cell phone now

Only in Colorado

Viewing property with clients up on Glade Park yesterday. Waded in 2+ feet of snow!! The roads were groomed nicely for a safe trip, but noone plows their driveway up there! LOL. The sun sparkled off the crystals of snow. I felt blessed, once again, to live in Grand Junction and be surrounded by breath-taking views!
