In case you missed my Sunday post, here it is again, I heard this is good for SEO or something: West Africa Travel, Jamaica Lottery Scam, Worst Men Products, Anglerfish Mating, Ghosts of Arctic.
Stay twice between August 31 and November 11 with Choice Hotels to earn a
free night 8,000 points.
Citibank has added Turkish Airlines as a Thank You points transfer partner. Not that you should transfer any points to that program but a good move nevertheless. I tried opening a Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles account some years ago and it was one of the most frustrating experiences I ever had in my long travel hacking career. I like the flying experience but oh boy do they suck in customer service in this department! You have been warned…
This website baredemptionfinder looks promising. It’s back – the only FREE and fast Avios reward finding tool you need!
If you have Air Berlin Topbonus miles you may be screwed. I hope it works out, don’t give up. Never give up 🙂 Update: Air Berlin Topbonus Stops Both Redemption AND Accrual Of Miles Until Further Notice.
What It’s Like to Be a Hotel Inspector. When I quit blogging I can go do this, my dream job. Well, not exactly as it does appear a lot of work! Any reader did this for a living? Or doing it now? What is a must read of this piece is that at the end this former hotel inspector recommends her favorites!
Everything you wanted to know about cats on a leash…A Brief History of Traveling With Cats. Did you now that cat Vladimir (really WTF!) is on his way to visit all 59 US National Parks!
This is pretty cool. Google Earth is giving virtual tours of traditional homes around the world.
The new roller coaster in Cedar Point in 2018 will break 10 world records. Its name: Steel Vengeance. Can’t wait!
Amazing video of Norway made by drone DJI Mavic Pro. I love drones, gotta get me one!
You come here to learn, get entertained and sometimes get inspired. I hope the sex robot stuff belongs somewhere between education and entertainment. Please 🙂 Anyway, the first sex robot is out, its name is Roxxy and retails for just $9,995. Come on Bezos, get this on Amazon so I can sell it. So, the first male sex robot will be called Rocky?
Roxxxy comes with thousands of customization options, ranging from her hair style and skin tone to the way she acts around you. She can also learn your likes and dislikes, and has even been programmed to orgasm. [What? Phuck me! Oh…wait]
Seven Strategies for Investing at Market Peaks. This is pretty good…
The 10 least livable cities in the world in 2017. Very surprised to see Kiev placing in #10!

Hope for Chase business cards if you are over 5/24?
It appears it is last call for the Merrill+ Visa Signature card. Good bonus for a card to kill after you redeem the 50,000 points.
Feel free always to make a case for a blog addition (or deletion) to my three awesome blog lists.
There may still be some availability left in American Airlines Business Class awards out of Philadelphia next summer to Budapest, Prague and Venice. I don’t post multiple times a day but I do see posts before you see them most likely. I always struggled with that…I better blog control myself. If I was making money from page views maybe I would but…Just do one and make it count. I could do boring weekly update posts too but I don’t. Ok, here is one: In the past week all of TBB’s posts were awesome!
Personal Finance Digest Nick’s idol is Rick Astley, so this one is for you man: The Foo Fighter Brought Rick Astley On Stage and You Can Guess What Happens Next. Did he say the F word, OMG! Woohoo!
Every blogger kisses ass linking to this barfing crap as the click bait just rolls on…
True story: This is how I got out of a speeding ticket last Friday, the day before my first colonoscopy. Cop busts me for going 53 in a 40 zone:
Me: “I did not realize I was going that fast officer but I do have a good excuse”.
Officer: “Go ahead, I have heard a few…”.
Me: “Tomorrow is my first colonoscopy and I am supposed to do these things to prep” (showed him the papers with 11 am on the top, he busted me at 11.45). I purchased the wrong thing and I am already behind one hour and I am going to Walgreens to get the correct pills and this is the reason I may have been going faster than I intended”.
Officer: (After coming back from doing his thing) “Okay, I just turned 50 earlier this year and I can empathize with you doing the prep for the colonoscopy. It is no big deal, just lay low today and slow down okay?”
Me: Thank you so much officer, I really appreciate it.
Officer: “That was a crappy excuse”…He told me smiling as he started walking back to his car.
My daughter (who is learning how to drive now) had the best lesson on how to handle it being pulled over!
And I leave you with this…
