    I'm sitting in the Seattle / Tacoma International Airport! And the flight I'm about to board isn't going anywhere near Paris.

    I don't have my GPS on, but if I open Google Maps it puts me right next to the airport.

    So why Paris?? :confused:

    Because the developer is French.

    Remove the widget, re-add it, and this time, be sure to check the 'geolocation' box :D

    You need to change the setup. if you don't have the GPS on, it automatically displays paris as your "Home Location". Open the setting within Beautiful Widgets and change the location and enable "Geolocation" as well.

    That should fix it...

    LOL ... that's hilarious! Had home location set and geolocation enabled. The remove and re-add worked like a charm. Thanks!!

    the default location is paris. if geolocation is on it will detect where you are, it will use paris as a fallback, and of course you can change what it says in that box.

    and change where it says paris at the top to your zip code or city.
