Did you miss me on Sunday Easter Day? I did…My blog does not publish on holidays!
Whole weekend went by…the worthy picks to share with you here regarding miles and points are almost nil. Just sad…
Just one: All the IHG Rewards Club 10,000 Points per night hotels. Most are in China. And Mexico…
So, lets continue to expand where we go here as we are evolving from a miles and points and travel blog to something…bigger? Not in conversions though…
We are going to stick with really eclectic stuff I find…whatever they are. So, lets’ go!
This is amazing writing. About her father’s death, wow! Watching the Internet React to the Worst Night of My Life. Erin Lee Carr on her father’s death.
What a GREAT legacy this guy is leaving! A Math Teacher’s Life Summed Up By The Gifted Students He Mentored. There are some teaching cells in my brain, I like to do that one day. This is your feel good story of the day after a gut wrenching post to start this blog post.
I don’t know about you but I am starting to feel like this guy may be what we need to move on from the Trump era. Too early, so many have crashed and burned. But there is something about this smart and likeable dude #developing Pete Buttigieg is a gay Harvard alum, fluent in Gramsci, Joyce, and Norwegian. And he’s the Democrats’ folksiest heartland hope. Really! Keep an open mind you guys ok?
I don’t know how they do this stuff online, I can’t even figure out how to do huge arrows (note: I have not tried, seems I should be doing other things). This is just COOL to watch! And very educational as well! What’s Really Warming The World?
No sex robots this time, just Bedroom confidential: what sex therapists hear from the couch. There are some huge changes under way!
“There are all sorts of small doubts creeping into people’s minds about what it is to be sexual, and even how.” Throw in expectations warped by pornography and social media, and distractions from phones, and sex therapists say their books have never been fuller and their clients never younger. “Every psychosexual therapist I speak to has a full waiting list,” [ I expect MMS Daraius, for his next act, to become this type of therapist and…scale it up lol]
But that is a struggle even within relationships. Most sex is over within 10 or 20 minutes, says Moyle, but even that is proving too much for fractured attention spans: “You have to switch off to turn on – and we never switch off.” [!!!!]
Must click! Must watch! China’s Confucius Institutes. Yeah, watch out!
I have been a fan of the musician Nick Cave ever since in my super high angst high school days I discovered an album (remember those?) by his first band the Birthday party. The dude has been rocking ever since with his band The Bad Seeds. He has turned incredibly mellow over the years. This is a full two hours plus of one of his concerts. In Copenhagen. You must sign up to an email list to see it in its entirety, today is the last day I think. It is a wonderful performance. Again.
The site Flowing Data is great. Check this link out and play with it: Percentage of Households in Each Income Level.
Really sad what happened to Greece. But the kicking the can could only last so long. The Best and Worst Performing Wealth Markets in the Last 10 Years.
Amazing graphic here, wow! Median Age of the Population in Every Country. You can visit the link to get a better view at it! You probably knew Japan is the oldest but the rest are all from Europe. And the younger ones all all primarily in Africa.
Like I said in the intro, slim pickings.
This is what happens when Citi shuts you down.
There was some great discussion in the comments the other day about the TPG phenomenon…and where we may go from here…We are dealing with a machine, surprised not more blogs have not quit yet!
If I was doing this for the money I would have quit a long time ago!
I ran 13 miles non stop on Easter Sunday. Just 1.34 mins off my personal best time. I have no idea how people run twice that in marathons!
When I run like that I excuse myself and go out and eat stuff I crave, me eating a pizza lol. Wife’s pasta dish was much better!
