ON MY MIND
Just way too much going on.
Cyprus is in the news. I was in Cyprus with my brother in 1986. My former roomate from college is from Cyprus and works in a local bank there. He is telling me he was told to stay home for a few extra days until the situation clears up. I hope he keeps his job!
Too many spammers wasting my time on this blog, I have to constantly delete spam messages. I support capital punishment for scum who do this for a living.
Called the US Bank automated line and was informed that my wife was approved for the Club Carlson Visa! Persistence pays off.
Still a bit hurt by wife’s denial on the Citi Thankyou card due to “excessive inquiries”. Has anyone been successful writing a letter to Citibank to reconsider the app?
Burned 50k United miles (and $260 in taxes) and finally got four tickets for the flights back to Detroit from Calgary. Not much available. 6 am Sunday departure, oh how we will regret this! I still have some hotel nights to book there. No chain hotels near the Fairmont in Banff Springs and Lake Louise? Any decent and not too expensive hotel recommendations? Is staying in Calgary and using it as a base to do driving trips around the area for 2 or 3 nights not recommended? Oh, I still need to reserve a rental car too. Any tips on booking rental cars in Canada? This trip is in late July/early August.
