Last flight I took that was me....trying to find a spot even in the back of the plane (was seated in like row 8). I ask flight attendant if they'll gate check it and she gets all super mad when she looks and sees all that kind of nonsense. Moved stuff around and got my bag in overhead. (it was the small rolley that fits into my other carryon) Then got on PA and "we don't have a full flight but our passengers boarding now are limited on overhead space so please check, use common sense and take anything that can go under your seat from the overheads and put them there. Nobody wants us to be delayed today because we can't pack our bags." that whole crew was awesome.....I wish they were on every flight ever.
I loved Wild book. Movie left a lot out and disappointed me. I couldn't put the book down, but found myself dazed during the movie. I just ordered Dances with Marmots, about PCT. gets 5 stars, but haven't read it yet. I really liked AWOL on the Appalachian Trail too. We've been doing a lot of camping this year and I love reading these stories both while we're out and when I come home and want to be back in the woods!
what's sad is there is a billionaire (or close) who wanted to do a deal with us for a big campaign. He's Republican but seems very normal/libertarian leaning. We had to pry and ask another contact who it was for, and found out it was Santorum. He was going to spend $10-$15million. We said no.
once a month or 6 weeks for those in areas we spend most time in. Others go 3 months (we check them but if they still look clean we don't change).
Also, my HVAC guy who serviced our units said the cheap filters are just as good as the expensive ones, which don't really stop allergens or keep your ducts/air any cleaner like they claim. I don't notice any difference (unfortunately one of ours in an odd size and we can only find them in the most expensive kind ever anywhere we look!)
Maybe this goes in the rant thread, but I'm okay with Hulu commercials, but for a week, during every show we watch, it's THE SAME BMW commercial. I haven't seen this happen since last prez election when the same ads ran incessantly. Anyone else experiencing 'repeated ad overload?" I guess I wouldn't even mind as much if it wasn't such a bad commercial.
