The Golden Gate Bridge spans the Golden Gate strait, the mile-wide, three-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The bridge which connects San Francisco, California to Marin County, California began construction on January 5, 1933 and officially opened on May 28, 1937. It’s the 9th longest susspension bridge in the world spanning 4,200 feet. (Goldengatebridge.org) Here’s a look at some historic images from the construction.

While most of us want to literally have our cake and eat it, too — especially one with zero calories — this remains a food fantasy. Despite popular belief, not all zero-calorie foods are “rabbit food.” There are fruits, snacks, and even frozen desserts that can make even those with the most hard-to-please taste buds salivate. These foods lead to greater nutrient intake, and help you feel full, without the risk of weight gain.

Like Bourbon and ghosts? There’s a tour for that.

The tomb of Julian Proctor Van Winkle, better known as Pappy, the namesake of the most coveted bourbon in the world, is among a dozen stops on the new bourbon history tour at Cave Hill Cemetery, led by Michael Veach, a bourbon historian with the Filson Historical Society.

Good idea. Been debating about getting one of these. Looks like we finally found a winner.

Having trouble? This could be why.

What has alluded me in OSX.9: Decide which spaces to use with particular apps

Decide which spaces to use with particular apps

The problem I have: I use to lock apps to a desktop all the time with Lion and Mountain Lion but it was enabled/disabled within system preferences and handled very differently. Once I made the switch to Mavericks - a number of my apps are still “stuck” in certain desktops and I couldn’t for the life of me guess how to fix it. This happens because I use multiple screens - a hugely worthwhile feature on a laptop screen.  Inc ace anyone else struggles with this hidden little feature - here’s how to work with Apps and Spaces in OS X Mavericks:

If you work in multiple spaces, you can assign apps to particular spaces.

  1. Press and hold an app’s icon in the Dock. You may have to first open the app from Launchpad to see its icon in the Dock.
  2. From the shortcut menu that appears over the icon, choose one of these:
    • To have the app open only in the current space, choose Options > This Desktop. From now on, the app will open in the current space; if you are working in a different space, the app’s space scrolls into view.

      This setting doesn’t apply to full-screen windows, which always appear in their own separate spaces.

    • To have the app open in every space, choose Options > All Desktops. From now on, when the app is open it will appear in every space.

    • To have the app open in the space you are currently using, choose Options > None.

In Mission Control preferences, you can specify that when you switch to an app, your desktop should scroll to a space with open windows for that app.

Nice and easy, just have to find it.
