Some good warnings about this Reselling thingie…
Hyatt takes a hammer and just beats up them Diamond Upgrades! No, this change is not “unfortunate”…it just SUCKS!
The latest on Best Western Rewards. Mostly positive but, then again, it is Best Western. Club Carlson can rest easy, it has some ways to catch up to #ouch.
Fidelity mileage offers if you have a lot of dinero sitting around.
Another devastating hit! I am having a meeting with a Private Banker next week #developing. One step closer to basket weaving and Tai Chi or 60k Ink?
How to close them accounts, nice reference.
Amazing Architecture. Some amazing stuff here in yet another AFAR list. I always discover something new! Lame blogger question would be…”which one is your favorite?” 🙂
Infographic: The Cleanest Cities in the World. Interesting. Shocked to find New Delhi, India in Number 2 in Asia, say whaaaat?
Painting in the Dark: The Struggle for Art in a World Obsessed with Popularity. Talks about Van Gogh and how it took years to sell his first painting. This is what I feel like this little blogging project here, I am creating art since I sucked in all musical instruments lol.
A brief history of swearing in movies. Very educational. Please lower the volume if you are at work!
Giant church in shape of shoe to open in Taiwan. What the hell crazy Christians!
Key Number in 2016 Income Tax Planning. Great reference as you gather all your 2015 tax documents!
6 Charts That Explain the State of Global Tourist Visas in 2016. Excellent charts indeed!
And I leave you with this…
Since we are on this mega bonus mode, what about this too!
I am not sure if you noticed but we are having a little bit of volatility in the financial markets lately. Of course nobody whines about upward volatility! When this happens, people like me in this business work more and make less and that is the price we pay for making more when markets go up. And thank God the latter happens more frequently than the former lol.
Time is even shorter to dedicate to my little baby here entertaining you all. I have been doing it for over three years now and it has become part of…my life. But it is now even more difficult, I am stretched to my limits with tax season about to start. I am afraid if I can keep it all together and keep it up to the level of quality I expect of myself and you should have come to expect as well. This is not a commercial blog like the fantastic MileCards and thank the Lord we don’t fall as low as Frugal Travel Guy! By the way, the founder of that pumping machine has been my most fiercely loyal reader since day one, trolling my site non stop. Yep, he is back folks, now posting as…The Truth Troll. You can’t make this stuff up! Just entertain yourself…because this site is primarily about entertainment! So wrong…so many times and keeps coming back, wow!
So, when I check once a day how much this operation has brought in to pay our fearless intern it is somewhat demoralizing when the past few days is not enough to pay for even a small cup of coffee at Panera! Thank God this is now the exception so thank YOU! No doubt we have way too many blogs and many of these bloggers will be better served by doing something else. But there are some good ones out there trying to do the right thing and enhance readers’ lives and do it in an ethical manner . But it is hard to…keep going! There is a point where most…give up. I am trying not to give up because I am stubborn as hell and like to build things from scratch. “The happiness is in the struggle!” Besides, I enjoy the hell out of it actually; if I didn’t I would not be doing it still because…you know, WTFwhy?
Actually, I like to vent here sometimes because it makes me feel better about myself and saves me money in therapist bills 🙂 TBB is where I go to take a break from a fully engaged life. I am living the dream and you can too! Especially, if you click on that beautiful CSP and Ink cards in my site bwahahaha. Anyways, thanks for entertaining myself too woohoo. Ok, my point. Please help the small bloggers, prevent them from quitting! Because outfits like FTG and MMS win then and that does not enhance humanity and advance world peace!
Thanks to the ones going for the Ink and SPG cards, you know who you are.
To new readers: I go on periodic whining rants so I can re energize myself to…keep going! Long time readers know to ignore them by now. I am making a really strong effort to do…less of this whining. Thanks for understanding 🙂
Please help bloggers you appreciate & make a positive difference in your life by spreading the word about their blogs, emailing and commenting and using their few $ links, thank you!
