How to use United.com to find award flights with your MileagePlus miles.
The final flight by United by Captain Denny Flanagan. Well done, enjoy your rewirement!
Many are thinking to leave American Airlines for Alaska Airlines, should you? Because, you know, the Elite disease can be so addictive. We are pretty much down to the hard core elites. End of an era. I may give away a Southwest drink coupon to the reader who guesses the date Alaska Airlines joins the rest of them in this revenue based tsunami engulfing us free loaders 🙂
A collage of one sec shots of Hong Kong!
The NSA’s guide to the internet. From 2007. Beyond weird reading!
Exchange Rates Just type: “€149 in US dollars“ (amount of foreign currency in currency you want exchanged to)
The current time in distant cities Just type: ““Time in Vienna (name of city)”

This is a wonderful personal finance post. Eleven Signs You Own the Right Portfolio I respond Si 🙂
1. You’re so well diversified that you always own at least one disappointing investment.
2. Your livelihood isn’t riding on both your paycheck and your employer’s stock.
3. If the stock market’s performance over the next five years was miserable, you wouldn’t be.
4. You can remember the last time you rebalanced.
5. You have no clue how your investments will perform, but a great handle on how much they’ll cost you.
6. You don’t have any hot stocks to boast about.
7. For every dollar you’ve salted away, you have an eventual use in mind—and the dollars are invested accordingly.
8. Jim Cramer? Who’s that?
9. A year from now, you plan to own the same investments.
10. You never say to yourself, “Wow, I didn’t expect that.”
11. You take tax losses when they’re available—but they aren’t available very often.
Amazing photos from the inside of cockpits of US Air Force airplanes, enjoy!

Credit card bonus complexity, good info.
Amazing how the big bloggers, just after a day faking outrage about the AA Elite changes, they are slowly coming around saying it is not that bad Hey, did they get a phone call form AA PR to cool it, if not no more access? I am thinking out loud…
It was great watching the USA Men beat up on Costa Rica 4-0 in Copa America, wow!
I need to get it together. Or maybe a good reason to fade away…But fading may reduce the eclectic quality here. So maybe sudden death will be better. Oh phuck it, gotta get some sleep. Hey haters, is this considered whining?
And I leave you with this…
