I agree with the reasons why World of Hyatt is the most exciting hotel program of the year. When son’s Hyatt credit card next statement closes it will have about 56,000 World of Hyatt points on it that I can not wait to transfer to my own World of Hyatt account #winning 🙂

Remember Crazy Eddie in the 80s? For the youngsters out there…probably not. For the over 50 crowd you are probably shaking your head remembering the crazy TV commercials. This is a fascinating story of his brother who was the CFO and helped the fraud who then turned informer and helped convict his own CEO brother. Why the CFO of a Famously Corrupt Company from the 1980s is Working for the Government. I found this a fascinating interview. If you do too you can click on some of my links you know 🙂
