If you book legs separately and a flight is late/cancelled, don’t expect the connecting airline to give a hoot. I booked a flight from Florence to Atlanta for a group, the Florence-to-Rome leg on Alitalia, the Rome-to-Atlanta flight on Delta. Alitalia cancelled the first leg due to fog and put us on the next flight. Read more

Before flying, download your airline’s Contract of Carriage from their website to your phone. It outlines ALL of their obligations to you (and yours to them). If you have the facts (e.g., “I need you to get me on X flight at 8 tomorrow morning, get me a room at Y hotel, provide a Voucher for two meals, and hand me $z Read more

FC needs to stop using the word “friend” to describe people he knows who treat him badly. I agree with the Doc: he needs to widen his circle and find some actual friends.

There’s a guy at my farmers market. He has a little trailer with his tools inside. He charges $1 per inch of blade and a benefit is that he sharpens your knife while you shop. So you don’t have to leave your knives for a few days then go back to pick them up. Now, this particular guy happens to do a bad job, but a lot Read more

I’m with you on the Misen. It’s been designated as my “travel knife”, the one I take when I’m going somewhere (to my mother in-law’s or to Tajikistan) and expect to spend time in a kitchen. I’m a knife minimalist and I’m now back to my 40-year old, often-washed-in-the-dishwasher Wusthof.

LOL. I remember when there were no security checks at airports. My first flight was from LA to El Paso, by myself, at age 6, in 1961.

You say in your post, “Hansson and his wife pulled her credit score to find she has a stronger profile than he does.”And an instant decision argues for simply using the applicant’s credit score, not for a human being meticulously searching out “discrepancies”.  Read more

I dispute your claim that the credit bureaus dint know your gender. On what do you base that claim?

You saw the bit where Hennemeier Hansson’s credit score was lower than his wife’s, right? Are you really trying to sell us on the notion that the banking industry isn’t as sexist as the society which it inhabits? Read more

Blanket and or towels; big beach towels double as wraps here in California. A pair of comfy shoes and socks. Some snacks and water. Our danger is getting home or evacuation in case of an earthquake or fire. Have a way to store this stuff; a clear, zippered bag from buyin a comforter is perfect. A shopping bag is fine Read more

The tone of your post seems to be that hair removal is and should be the norm. I find that sad. Your attitude is partly generational: in my generation underarm and leg shaving were usual; in my mother’s generation, less so. Women of yoyr generation seem often to feel all body hair must go Read more

As an old wife, I can tell you these are mostly old wives tales. I’d love to see you get your medical experts to weigh in on these urban legends, Patrick. Read more

I realize this is tangential to the point if your post.  But before taking action I’d be mighty certain my child wasn’t the “bad kid”.
