Hilton HHonors cheat sheet. Good reference. This program was so awesome years ago!
Get used to less upgrades as airlines are shifting towards more enticing pricing for First Class tickets. This is how United does it…
Booking hotels direct seems to be all the rage lately. Here is a summary of the discounts, perks and restrictions of the hotel companies offering it.
I find the Japanese to be kind of weird. Did you know you can “rent men” who are paid to just listen. Hope they do this for more than 31 cents—-what my blog earned yesterday. Lol or WTF, whatever you prefer! Or Both!
How the internet was invented. Fascinating read. It all started at Rossotti’s, a California beer garden.
Your personal finance read of the day: Spot the Red Flags. Good advice on how to avoid scams! Maybe I should do one for blogs 🙂

I think I may add a description of each blog in my infamous Blogs To Ignore list just so I can stop wasting my time with them and be…positive 🙂 Somebody needs to educate the newbies! Can you imagine all the clicks I could get if I kissed their asses? Even View From the Wing could throw me a bone once a year lol.
Political conventions always turned me off. Preaching to the choir. What a giant waste of resources! I wish all political campaigns were limited to just one month…and save us the endless circus!
And I leave you with this…Some MSer did this to take revenge for changing their gift card sales policy…
