Remember the long-ago popular tune, and lyrics that declare that Route 66 "winds from Chicago to L.A?" Not exactly correct. Route 66 continues past Los Angeles for another dozen miles to the coastal city of Santa Monica.

Consider some stops along the way where to “get your kicks on Route 66”. From the song’s lyrics, they include familiar towns of Flagstaff, Winona, Kingman, Barstow and San Bernardino.

Flagstaff is surrounded by beautiful Ponderosa Pine forests and the San Francisco Peaks. It's a favorite stop for tourists on their way 80 miles north to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

Many seasoned wanderers brag they've had the proper flu shots, drink orange juice and do the usual precautions to prevent infection. Most of all, they also insist inoculation keeps away the nasty bug.

Actually, according to recent reports by the Center For Disease Control, flu vaccines are effective for no more than 65 percent.
