Rick tells us about his recent trip to Europe, and his tips for having a good time. Rick took a cruise through southern Europe, and he liked that the boat would travel at night . They used at monasterystays.com to keep some costs low, and they enjoyed it a lot. Rick’s takeaway was that after reading all the travel books that wind you up about theft while traveling was to be safe, and to use common sense to keep your camera and cash safe from pickpockets. Rick bought a special camera strap that has a metal wire inside it that keeps someone from cutting the strap to take the camera while you are not looking. Rick found that while he had packed the flash for his camera, he did not use it. Rick pointed out that the women he was traveling with did not carry purses, just under the clothes wallet or money belt.
Rick did use a Canon GPS GP-E2 on for his Canon camera that added GPS data to each picture he took, so when he was editing the photos back home, and wasn’t sure where the photo was taken, you could use the GPS data to figure out where the photo as taken.
Rick took his iPhone, and used public WiFi to check email. He removed the SIM card to keep himself from inadvertantly using the cell service, which would be expensive. He did caution that he used a VPN network when using public WiFi. And do not log into your banking or credit card passwords from any public WiFi.
We move on to mousetraps and the best way to catch mice, or the best way to get rid of mice. Rick and Eric do not like glue traps. Eric used the snap traps, the kind made of metal and wood and he is a big fan of the new electronic mouse traps that zap the mouse dead. A very simple and clean way to get rid of mice.
We then answer some viewer mail about dishwasher smells and removing a broken bulb from an oven.
