US hostage Thomas Hamill escapes, U.S. military says he's in good health

American hostage Thomas Hamill, kidnapped three weeks ago in an insurgent attack on his convoy, was found by U.S. forces Sunday south of Tikrit after he apparently escaped from his captors, the U.S. military said. An official said he was in good health.

Hamill, 43, of Macon, Miss., was discovered when he approached a U.S. patrol from the 2nd Battalion 108th Infantry, part of the New York National Guard, in the town of Balad, 35 miles south of Tikrit, a spokesman for U.S. troops in Tikrit said. ...

Prayers continue for those still held that they may also come home safely. But in the mean time thanks to God for bringing Hamill home Happy

Howver, Evie, I suspect we'll find that they basically let him go (without telling him in advance, so they had more time to clear the area). Hopefully he can tell us what happened to the other three, though I fear the news won't be as sanguine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
