Sad News- Robert A (Bob) Bloomfield took his last flight surrounded by family on Oct 8th in Eagle,Idaho.He was 97 years young, and his mind and spirit were with him to the very end. Bob was a part time resident of LB, on the hill at Verdugo’s with honors, for the fact that he had spent many Springs on the sea wall in the mid 70’s there, before there were hotels on the site. He eventually wound up at his beach front palapa at Costa Brava, where he welcomed all with his hospitality and treasured Margaritas. Bob was a decorated Navy fighter pilot, having flown over 250 missions in the S Pacific during WWII, having received 3 Distinguished Flying Crosses.  Born and raised on the east coast, Bob migrated to Sun Valley, Idaho in 1972,  where he was a cowboy, hunter,back country pilot, golfer and father to his 7 children, grandfather to 13, and great grandfather to 6.
Bob was a fabulous story teller, and his sense of humor was second to none. He was a fixture at Otro Vez for Monday night football, an avid reader, and a great Bridge player. He flipped burgers at the big art fair for many years, and made many Baja friends during his many winters there. He will be missed.

  1. Cell Phones – Season 1 Episode 3. I hate to read stories of lost cell phones. If you can’t find your cell, there are some steps to take immediately. If you have a Fruit Phone (excuse me, an Iphone), go to any computer and search for “Find My Iphone”. You will need to sign-in with your Icloud credentials (aka. Itunes or Apple screen name and passcode). As long as your lost phone has a charge and a data connection, you can see where the phone happens to be. If you suspect that it’s stolen, you can use that same site to “brick” the phone (disable it). If you have an android phone, search for “Find my Android Phone”. Same procedures apply. If you are in the Apple system, you can buy an Apple Air Tag to attach to the phone. That will help you located the phone using Bluetooth. If you are out of Bluetooth range, anyone else who comes within range will report the location to you. Come to think of it, that might work on your expensive ATV/UTV.

    You probably have a lot of important photos on your phone. I highly recommend that you install Google Photos and/or Amazon Photo. Those sites will back up your photos for free. If you loose your phone, you will always have your pictures.

    On the drive south I use an app called Life360. That allows select friends to monitor my progress as long as I have a data connection. Your friends can opt out of the GPS tracking but I feel better knowing that someone knows where to find me. Life360 works on Apple or Android. You can always opt out after the journey. thecomputerguy@usa.com
