Page Springs Fish Hatchery

 

http://www.azgfd.gov/outdoor_recreation/wildlife_area_page_springs.shtml

Nestled among the cool pines of the Coconino National Forest, the Page Springs Fish Hatchery offers a cool retreat from the desert during hot summer months. Families enjoy hiking the nature trial bordering Oak Creek, and kids like visiting the show ponds to see the hatchery’s finest and largest trout.At 82 acres, this is the state’s largest coldwater fish production facility, producing nearly 700,000 trout a year. The property also includes a smaller warm water hatchery, Bubbling Ponds. In recent years, Bubbling Ponds produced sportfish such as bluegill, largemouth bass, and walleye, and sensitive species such as razorback suckers and Colorado pikeminnow used by the department in native fish conservation and recovery efforts.
 
Recreational Opportunities – Day Use Only

The hatchery includes an interpretive center and a self-guided hatchery tour, finishing in a visit to the show ponds. These amenities are accessible to the disabled. The hatchery is open 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m., seven days a week (closed Thanksgiving and Christmas).

A recently completed nature trail, with signs describing riparian habitat and wildlife, meanders through the hatchery grounds and along Oak Creek. The trail is a great place to see wildlife and view birds.

Camping: There are no camping facilities at the hatchery. However, camping areas are available nearby on Forest Service lands, or at Arizona State Parks such as Red Rock State Park near Sedona or Deadhorse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood. For camping information, a park map, or weather data, click on Red Rock State Park or Dead Horse Ranch State Park.

Bubbling Ponds, just west of Page Springs.

 This is a warm water hatchery fed by hot springs which keep the water at a steady 70 degrees Fahrenheit. It is operated by AZ Fish and Game.

Crescent Moon Picnic Area

http://www.fs.fed.us/r3/coconino/recreation/red_rock/crescentmoon-picnic.shtml

One of the most photographed scenes in the southwest is towering Cathedral Rock reflected in the waters of Oak Creek at Red Rock Crossing. It should come as no surprise, then, that the picnic area located at that same site is as popular as it is beautiful. People come here to fish, swim, and wade in the creek, as well as to picnic and photograph the scenery. At times it can become quite crowded. But if you come early in the morning or on a weekday, it’s possible to have the world class beauty of Red Rock Crossing all to yourself, or nearly so.

Location: 37 miles south of Flagstaff, 7 miles southwest of Sedona. Elevation is 4,000 feet.

GPS: N34° 49′ 33.78″, W-111° 48′ 26.7114″

Access: Drive west from Sedona on US 89A. Just outside town, turn south on FR 216 (Upper Red Rock Loop Road). Drive about 1.5 miles and follow the signs to Red Rock Crossing. All roads except the short segment leading from Red Rock Crossing Road to the picnic area are paved.

Season: All year, hours: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Memorial Day through Labor Day; off-season, 8 a.m. to dusk.

Attractions: Picnicking, Waterplay, Wildlife watching, Photography, Fishing

Facilities: Accessible Picnic Tables, Cooking grills, Vault Toilets, Group Ramada

    Bernanke renewed his warning that as the U.S. population ages, government pension and health care obligations to retirees put the U.S. budget on an unsustainable path.

    “We should be planning now on how we meet these looming budgetary challenges,” he said.

    However, he said now was not the time to tighten the U.S. budget, because the economy was still in need of support.

    The budget deficit hit $1.4 trillion last year and is projected at $1.6 trillion this year.

    A Treasury Department report to Congress last week said the ratio of debt to gross domestic product could rise to 102 percent by 2015 from 93 percent this year.

    (Let’s put this in perspective. See below.)

    Opening Statement

    Ranking Member Paul Ryan (WI), House Budget Committee

    Full Committee Hearing with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke

    http://www.house.gov/ryan/speeches_and_editorials/2010speechesandeditorials/6910HBCFRC.htm

    EXCERPT

    The main point here is that there is a need for policymakers to re-assure credit markets that the U.S. is engaged in charting a clear course back to sustainable deficit and debt levels soon.

    It’s clear to me that this means reining in government spending, not simply ramping up taxes.

    In particular, we need to reform our entitlement programs, which threaten to grow themselves into extinction, collapse our safety net, overwhelm the entire Federal budget, and sink the economy in the process.

    The budding sovereign debt problems in other parts of the world provide us with a cautionary tale that it’s always best to take action to shore up budget deficits before market forces demand it.

    And so what is this Congress and Administration done to respond?

    *** Two new entitlement programs and no budget. ***

    The Majority’s failure to even offer a budget and its commitment to continue spending money we don’t have

    – creating brand new entitlements and plunging our nation deeper into debt –

    tell me, and tell the bond markets, that Washington still doesn’t recognize the severity of our fiscal and economic challenges.

    I look forward to your testimony today, Chairman Bernanke, and remain hopeful that policymakers will heed your warnings and chart a sustainable course to avert the next crisis.

    U.S. at the tipping point

    America today is not as far from this tipping point as we might think.

    While exact and precise measures cannot be made, there are estimates that, in 2004, 20% of households in the U.S. were receiving about 75% of !heir income from the Federal government, and that another 20% were receiving nearly 40% of their income from Federal programs.

    AU in all, about 60% of U.S. households were receiving more government benefits and services, measured in dollars, than they were paying back in taxes.

    It also has been estimated that Pr?s. Obama’s first budget alone raises this level of ‘ ‘net dependency” to 70%.

    Looked at in this way, I see health care reform of the kind passed by the Obama Administration and congressional leaders as part of a crusade against the American ideal.

    This is a dramatic charge, but the only alternative is that they are ignorant of the consequences of their programs.

    The national health care exchange created by their legislation, together with its massive subsidies for middle-income earners, represents tfie greatest expansion of tfie welfare state in our country in a generation – and possibly in history.

    The plan will provide subsidies that average a UtUe less than 20% of the income of people earning up to 400% of the Federal Poverty Level.

    In other words, as many as 110,000,000 Americans could claim this new entitlement within a few years of its implementation.

    In addition to the immediate massive increase in dependency this will bring on, the structure of the subsidies

    – whereby they fade out as income rises –

    will impose a marginal tax penalty that will act as a disincentive to work, increasing dependency even more.

    Americans take pride in self-government, which entails providing for their own well-being and the well-being of their families in a free society.

    In exchange for this, the promoters of government-run health care have made them passive subjects, dependent on handouts and far more concerned about security than liberty.

    At the heart of the conflict over heath care reform are two incompatible understandings of the U.S.:

    one is based on the principles of progressivism, and places more and more aspects of our lives under the administration of unelected “experts” in Federal bureaucracies;

    the other sees America as a society of free individuals under a Constitution that severely limits what the Federal government rightfully can do.

    We have seen many times over the past 100 years that the American people tend to be resistant to the progressive view of how we should reform our system of government

    – and I believe we are seeing this again today, although the Administration and Congress chose to ignore the country’s outrage over this legislation.

    NOT PROGRESSIVE, REACTIONARY

    Americans retain the Founders’ view that a government that seeks to go beyond its high but limited constitutional role of securing equal rights and establishing free markets is not progressive at all in the literal sense of that word -rather it is reactionary.

    Such a government seeks to privilege some Americans at the expense of others

    – which is precisely what the American Revolution was fought to prevent.

    Citizens understand that the problems facing our health care system today, real as they are, should have been addressed without nationalizing one-axA of the economy and moving us past the tipping point toward a European-style social welfare state.

    They understand that we should have solved these problems while, at the same time, remaining a free society and acting consistently with the principles that have made us the greatest and most prosperous nation on Earth.

    It is our duty now as their representatives to come together and somehow do so.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,594284,00.html

    EXCERPT

    Van Jones said that he’s dropped the radical pose in favor of the radical ends.

    What were those radical ends?

    He was in a group called STORM — Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement — a group whose members included anarchists and communists.

    Their tactics:

    • Revolutionaries need to be militant in street actions. As leaders in the fight for liberation, we should be role models of fearlessness before the state and the oppressor

    • Mobilize young people of color into militant direct action

    • Learning not to joke about government surveillance or violent criminal activity and learning to be cautions in our use of telephone and e-mail communications are valuable tools for serious revolutionaries

    • Marches were militant and confrontational, regularly defying police commands and occasionally plunging through police lines and barricades

    The stated goal for STORM:

    Working towards getting the country to make a definite and collective shift towards communist politics.

    I’m going to make the STORM handbook available in my free e-mail newsletter.

    This is why I’ve said that the president is in danger:

    He’s got revolutionaries all around him who believe in this and that the ends justify the means.

    Now you have an idea what modern day anarchy is.

    Birther Army Doc Waives Hearing, Court Martial Likely To Move Ahead

    http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/06/lakin_waives_hearing_court_martial_likely_to_move.php

    The group backing Birther Army Doctor Terrence Lakin as he makes his way through the military justice system announced today that Lakin is waiving a preliminary hearing that was set for Friday.

    Lt. Col. Lakin refused orders on the grounds that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president.

    It is now up to Maj. Gen. Karl Horst, Military District of Washington Commander, to decide if the case will go to trial, said Chuck Dasey, spokesman at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, where Lakin is assigned.

    Well, Polarik’s not buying it:

    To: Natural Born 54; LucyT; rxsid; Fred Nerks

    True to form, WND made the bogus Tim Adams story front page news. I was one of the first to hear the “audio” posted online on what was an Internet radio show, and what was an anonymous caller who gets on, totally out of the blue, identifies himself as “Tim Adams” former CHIEF elections official in Hawaii in 2008,” and cavalierly recounting a tall-tale that WND parroted as being the Gospel.”

    I went looking for anyone named Tim Adams with any connection to Hawaii and found none.

    I have never bought into hearsay evidence – now especially since it comes from WND – and neither should anyone else.

    Hearsay evidence is inadmissible in a Court of Law, and it should also be inadmissible in any serious discussion.

    Sorry, but time and time again, just when we get really close to finding the truth, some yahoo pops up – with a bogus story or a document, like the fake Bomford/Kenyan BC or the “confessions” from people claiming to have forged Obama’s COLB – to throw us off track.

    If “Everybody knew about it,” then why has there never been a single solitary soul to come forward from Hawaii’s election office with this news in the THREE years and FOUR months since Obama announced his candidacy?

    I have two words for it, and the first word is “BULL.”

    Of course, what this guy says paradoxically VALIDATES Farah’s narcissistic quest for the “long-form birth certificate” because if none exists, then then is as good as getting one if it did.

    It is totally irresponsible journalism – and is EXACTLY the same kind of mindless repetition that goes on with liberals and Hawaii/Factcheck.

    JimRob banned it when it first showed up on FR because Stormfront was behind the link. I also noticed it on a neo-Nazi YouTube channel as well, which I am sure is connected to them.

    BUT..I digress.

    This was not the first time my work has been lifted by WND.

    Chelsea Shilling swiped the original story I wrote and posted on FR – about the $688,000 being paid to Obama’s personal attorney, Robert Bauer, “to quash the eligibility lawsuits.” She copied that quote of mine, VERBATIM, in her article.

    I complained on FR after I saw it, as well as directly to Chelsea and Farah both. No response.

    Interesting bit of history with Ms. Shilling. On the evening of June 12, 2008, after WND ran a story on the Daily Kos’s posting the COLB earlier that morning, I spoke with Chelsa by phone and tried to convince her to do a story on why I knew the COLB was forged.

    She blew it off and the rest is history.

    Corsi has also been using me as a conduit for his articles as well. I did not complain because he was (at first) one of the only ones on WND to go on record as saying that the COLB was forged.

    I’ve got emails, going back to 2008, in which I privately sent him information not intended for public consumption, only to find them incorporated, nearly verbatim, in stories that appeared in his WND stories the following day.

    Like I said, I did it for the “cause.”

    In a way, I guess, I should have been more vigilant and known this would happen.

    You are 100% right – this is all about making $$$ for WND.

    Farah has become a birther meglomaniac – taking personal credit for all of the work that others have done – with FR being an unwitting primary contributor to his success.

    Think of all the WND posts that FR has made over the years.

    What I found particularly galling was when I attempted to post my 410-word letter that appeared on WND. I got the following caveat that FR automatically generated when I entered its URL:

    “wnd.com must be excerpted per copyright complaint from Joseph Farah.”

    So, I was forced to cut out 110 words, and a lot got lost in the translation. Truncating it 300 words would have made it a lot worse.

    “Copyright complaint.”

    Every freaking day in his commentary, Farah never misses an opportunity to pat himself on the back. Im always reading his “sob stories” about how much he has been “personally attacked” for being “the first and only one who has been pushing for Obama to release his long-form birth certificate.”

    Gimme a break. Farah would not have withstood a single day of the monumental crap that I had to put up with for 14 straight months, if he was totally on his own – as I have always been – and did not have a media complex to back him up, and did not get a dime for my troubles, either.

    It’s easily refuted by previous comments made by Hawaii’s Republican Governor, who has a lot more credibility than some guy calling in to a Stormfront-sponsored program.

    I just heard your radio interview, where you are stating that you worked for the Registrar of election in HI and it was a common knowledge there that Obama did not have a valid birth certificate and that he was not born in this country.

    I need to interview you and submit to court your testimony regarding Barack Obama not being born in this country and not having a valid US birth certificate on file.

    But you can’t stop the corruption at the HDOH, the Hawaii State Library, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, and the Honolulu Advertiser until you expose that they’ve pulled a number on all of us – and broken laws to do so – just to trick people who actually thought that government, media, and law enforcement still might have some integrity.

    This is a wake-up call. They don’t. “Birthers” have been mocked because they didn’t swallow from the politicians and media the oldest line in the book: “Just trust me…”

    Very soon it will come out that the people we’ve been told we’re supposed to trust have been screwing us and laughing at every “idiot” they played for a fool.

    I hope every person who gave the HDOH and the media the benefit of the doubt on the announcements will rise up in just anger at the abuse of their trust, and sink the people who have done this. They know who they are, and soon America will know who they are.

    but I think that to start with “He wasn’t born in Hawaii” detracts from the other NBC arguments.

    I tend to agree. But if he wasn’t, and wasn’t born elsewhere in the US, then he’s not even a citizen, unless he was later naturalized. Either way, he’d not be eligible. It’s harder for Joe and Josephine Sixpack to understand the “not natural born because of having a non citizen father”.

    After all that takes some research into historical sources. Court decisions based on Vattel, rather than English common law. Old referances to “natural born child of citizens”, etc take a bit of work to comprehend.

    Might miss “American Idol” while doing all that reserach and reading.

    Still J&J Sixpack seem to be beginning to understand that “The Won” is not like any other America President. Next they’ll start to wonder why.

    And when J & J Sixpack realize that a common traffic stop check for Obama would have shown that he’s not even a citizen, they will realize just how corrupt our government, media, and law enforcement are in this country. And THAT should rattle people to the core.

    My communications are all being monitored and critical communications are being blocked – not from me sending them, but from the people ever receiving them.

    Sometimes they receive the e-mails a week late.

    Communications that I’ve blocked get delivered to me anyway, even though I’m not listed as the person it was being sent to.

    In the meantime, BP is bringing in a new processing vessel that will raise total collection capacity to about 38,000 barrels per day “toward the end of June,” Allen said.

    Details of the new “hard cap” collection system come a day after

    *** U.S. scientists DOUBLED their high-end estimate for the amount of oil gushing from the blown-out BP well ***

    to 40,000 barrels per day.

    BP’s new collection system involves bigger, sturdier vessels that can stand up to rougher sea conditions in the Gulf of Mexico that are anticipated as the U.S. hurricane season progresses, Allen said.

    BP will build a new riser mooring system connecting the well to flexible hoses on the ocean surface that can be quickly disconnected in the event of stormy seas, Allen said.

    Under the current system, a containment cap placed atop the gushing well pipe a mile (1.6 km) below the ocean surface is funneling some of the escaping oil and gas from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico to the surface to be collected in ships.

    An undetermined amount of oil continues to escape from the cap into the ocean.

    So when I heard him say on the Hugh Hewitt show yesterday that he still believes Israel will attack Iran to prevent them from acquiring a nuclear weapon, it scared the hell out of me.

    I’m paraphrasing but he was quoting a source which told him that when someone in Russia was asked what about Iran …

    this Russian official said Iran, who cares about Iran?

    The Israelis will take care of Iran.

    So it would seem that the nation-states with veto power at UN are content with letting Israel do their dirty work.

    But will Israel do their dirty work?

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,594362,00.html

    The CEO of Green for All, (a big player in Crime Inc. — she sits on the board of Emerald Cities) spoke recently and here’s what she had to say:

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    PHAEDRA ELLIS-LAMKINS, CEO OF GREEN FOR ALL: So when Glenn Beck started talking about me, someone said, are you angry?

    And what I said to him is absolutely we have a plot to take over this country.

    Absolutely we do!

    (APPLAUSE)

    It’s not our hidden agenda.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    So they do want to take over the country and the mask is coming off.

    But will anyone join us in this conversation out in the light of day?

    It would have been helpful before we passed health care.

    Another speaker noted that Larry Summers, Tim Geithner, Rahm Emanuel aren’t part of the movement.

    Revolutionaries see them “as part of the problem.”

    That’s saying something!

    When the guys who are leading the government’s current march to power are considered “part of the problem”?

    Again, what do they want them to do?

    Well, you have to look at what revolutionaries believe.

    Did anyone know that last month, the Communist Party USA’s 29th Annual Convention was held? Oh Glenn, so what? It was on C-SPAN.

    And you should be worried because they are excited about all the progress they’re making — not just in Washington but on the ground.

    The party chair, Sam Webb, on his website said that not since the Great Depression have so many Americans been so uneasy and so angry and that increasingly, working people are turning their anger into organized and collective rage against this crisis.”

    He cites a few examples of that rage:

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

    SAM WEBB, COMMUNIST PARTY USA: Union workers at Hugo Boss in Ohio prevented their plant from closing also with the help from actor Danny Glover. Big victory.

    Opposition to Arizona’s draconian unconstitutional immigration law is mushrooming there and elsewhere.

    Student mobilizations on University of California campuses against cutbacks and tuition hikes were very, very impressive.

    Labor’s May Day marches struck a high note in a number of cities, including New York down on Wall Street.

    They have a plan. What happens if they get power?

    Obama budget cuts only a start

    http://blogs.reuters.com/james-pethokoukis/2010/06/09/obama-budget-cuts-only-a-start/

    The tweaks that Obama seems to be calling for land well short of the big cost-cuts eventually needed to get the U.S. budget in order.

    They would affect only discretionary spending unrelated to security, and only starting in 2012.

    In that year, the projection for such expenses (outside defense and homeland security) is roughly $600 billion.

    So a 5 percent cut would be $30 billion, or 0.2 percent of GDP.

    The budget deficit that year is expected to be $915 billion, or 5.8 percent of GDP, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

    The cuts, in other words, would easily disappear in the overall deficit forecast’s margin of error.

    Entitlements are where the real money is.

    A 5 percent cut in health and pension programs, for instance, would amount to $105 billion.

    And such “mandatory” spending will increasingly dominate.

    Currently, this category of spending is half as large again as all discretionary spending.

    By 2020, that ratio could expand to 120 percent unless Obama’s deficit commission is able fashion a set of entitlement reductions acceptable to Congress.

    http://www.roadmap.republicans.budget.house.gov/

    And Obama has plenty more scope.

    Defense spending is half of the total discretionary category.

    Some Republican budget hawks might even applaud well-chosen cuts.

    And reducing the federal workforce by 25 percent would save $650 billion by 2018, according to simulations run by the Committee for a
    Responsible Federal Budget.

    Eliminating earmarks — self-serving pork slipped into spending bills by members of Congress — would save another $160 billion by that year.

    It would also show the public that Congress takes austerity seriously.

    Bottom line, they argue, the economy is still weak and that excessive focus on deficit reduction could make things worse.

    Right now? Slashing budgets? Seriously?

    This straw man argument has been made time and time again by those who want to avoid dealing with the tough choices that deficit reduction involves.

    They love spending in the name of stimulus, but dealing with the obvious challenge of paying for it all, which they acknowledge in passing will at some point have to be dealt with?

    No thank you.

    No, you should not reduce the deficit this year.

    No, budgets should not be slashed.

    As we have said in Red Ink Rising, and Ben Bernanke clearly laid out yesterday, and as the many members of the Announcement Club have argued for, we should commit to a credible debt reduction plan today to reassure markets, and phase it in gradually once the economy is strong enough.

    A key piece of this is not growing the deficit further in the medium term.

    Even stimulus measures—which may well be warranted—and thus should enlarge the deficit over the year, should be paid for over the next five years or so to mitigate the debt effects.

    That’s why specific suggestions for paying for stimulus and emergency measures such as those from Senators Coburn and Thune are useful.

    But if those making the case for stimulus want to see any recovery stick, they may want to shift their focus

    from stimulus, stimulus, stimulus and nothing else,

    to how to spend it now (the easy part) and how to pay for it later (the tough stuff.)

    “He didn’t mention that Medicare cuts will be $550 billion and those are cuts to hospitals, cuts to nursing homes, cuts to home health agencies, cuts who hospice to help people in the final days and hours of their lives.

    “Didn’t mention that the new Medicare Director, someone he’s recently named, loves the British health care system and says we’re going to need to ration care. Didn’t see that mentioned to the seniors today.

    “Didn’t see him mention the fact that 18 — up to $18 million has been spent on a mailer about the new health care law that many have referred to this as propaganda because it fails to really clearly and honestly express what is going to happen to people on Medicare as they cut $550 billion from their health care over the next years.”

    Interim County Attorney Rick Romley

    Joe Arpaio’s attorneys cut off from county funds

    http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/2010/06/10/20100610joe-arpaio-attorneys-cut-off.html

    EXCERPT

    Driscoll began working for the Sheriff’s Office last summer after Arpaio’s agency became the subject of a federal civil-rights investigation.

    With a background in the U.S. Attorney General’s Office, Driscoll was thought to have the pedigree to lead the Sheriff’s Office through a battle with federal investigators.

    One month after he was brought in, Driscoll announced that the Sheriff’s Office would no longer cooperate with the Justice Department, accusing federal investigators of misleading Arpaio’s representatives.

    But Driscoll has continued to do work on Arpaio’s behalf, to the surprise of Maricopa County administrators.

    Alston & Bird, Driscoll’s firm, invoiced the Sheriff’s Office on March 24, March 29 and again April 12, county officials said.

    Based on documents, the officials believe the firm was paid about $155,000, county spokeswoman Gerchick said.

    Driscoll said in a statement that no one from Romley’s office has contacted him.

    “It’s clear that the Sheriff has a right to representation by council of his choice. He has a right not to be represented by a County Attorney’s office that is hostile to his interests,” Driscoll wrote.

    TRSoL Exclusive: HI Elections Clerk: “I believe Obama is eligible to hold office” (Update 3)

    http://www.therightsideoflife.com/2010/06/11/trsol-exclusive-hi-elections-clerk-i-believe-obama-is-eligible-to-hold-office/

    Phil,

    Thank you for the Email.

    Actually I believe God has a sense of humor, because I thought these notions were pretty well common and not very important.

    I was actually just in Nashville, observing a conservative political conference, I’m not a member of any kind of group, and too liberal for these guys, when James Edwards, the host of the Political Cesspool, heard about me from someone and asked if I would simply state what I had observed and been told while working in Hawaii.

    I believe Pres. Obama was born a United States citizen, and is eligible to hold office, I find the idea that because he was probably born outside of the U.S., he must be some kind of alien to be basically racist.

    I do think we should close this issue and pass legislation requiring office seekers to prove identity before running for elected office.

    Thanks for the kind inquiry

    (Timothy Adams)

    (With all due respect, it doesn’t matter what Mr. Adams believes. Mr. Obama is eligible or he is not.)

    Excellent questions, all. Perhaps only a profiler who could ever meet Mr. Adams would be able to tell if it’s purely naivete or intentional ignorance.

    Rush has every reason to fear for his life, I continue to read the COLB threads but rarely post except to correct an obvious error. Too much has happened including having a death threat posted(over a stipulated theory) and then removed by one of the mods, among other matters. Someone was in our home last month going through my husband’s computer and before they left they took some papers and other items and screwed around with the computer and modem wiring leaving us with no internet connection for two weeks. We finally had to get outside assistance to come in to restore our internet connection. The sherriff has been informed and will be watching our home while we are away.
