Weeks ago in this column, I reviewed several Android and iPhone apps that can be used to possibly locate lost or stolen phones and tablets. While several of the apps were free, most were limited in capabilities without a paid, usually nominal, subscription fee. Now Google, known for its innovation and services, has offered a pair of very simple and free ways to locate almost any lost or stolen Android device, totally for free.

Things got interesting last week at the State Capitol. Some Republican lawmakers seek to deliver on the anti-immigration fervor they believe motivates the Tea Party elements in their base.

Bullfrog

Bullfrog is the perfect pup. He gets his name because of his big ol’ belly that sticks out like a bullfrog’s. Bullfrog is a 3-month-old, 15-pound Australian cattle dog mix. He and his siblings were abandoned on a porch in Orange at the young age of 2 weeks. A human foster mom has tenderly and lovingly raised all the pups in Bullfrog’s litter. Bullfrog is one lovable, rambunctious boy!

Question: About five months ago, my husband and I rented an apartment. Now my husband is being transferred to another city. If we do have to move soon, we’ll break our lease by six months. The landlord says we will owe him for leaving early. Is he right?

Wisteria

What is the climbing, blooming, fragrant, vining vine that we all look forward to seeing this time of year? It will twine and climb and sprawl over fences, arches and other things in your yard that you would love to hide. Yes, it is the wonderful wisteria.
