Wow, had no idea that ticket prices to Europe had gotten so expensive. Cheapest economy, booked well in advance for low season is now $1100. Taxes and stupidity included. Thought I'd go visit my friend in the UK. Gotta think on this now.

Not cheap. Have you tried Expedia, and setting up an alert for London or wherever you want to go? Then when special fares appear, you get an email. That's what I do for our trips. Then you can also fidget with dates to get fares even lower.

Part, there are still gas fees on international tickets for US. Not so for other countries. Kinda nuts.

I've been following fares for London for awhile now. Totally outrageous. The only affordable flight is on Air India, operated by Kuwait Airways. Kuwaitis avoid Kuwait Airways at all costs - airline just bought its first new planes in decades.

Might be worth looking for fares from DC or Boston or even Philaderpia.

Tamiflu is supposed to lessen the symptoms of flu and make the illness 2 days shorter or something.

Advil and Tylenol are much better at fever suppression than aspirin, but knowing how much dibs drinks he is correct to be concerned about his liver.
#45
February 16, 2015 9:59 AM - dibs

#47

Ibuprofen in the same family as aspirin and more effective. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is the problem with liver damage.

From the CDC FAQ:
Some side effects have been associated with the use of flu antiviral drugs, including nausea, vomiting, dizziness, runny or stuffy nose, cough, diarrhea, headache and some behavioral side effects. These are uncommon. Your doctor can give you more information about these drugs or you can check the CDC or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) websites.

I placed a re-order with a company at the show for a couple of items to ship now and many items to ship in May. I received the 'ship now' items this week. The quality of one of the items (plain brass bands in varying sizes and widths) had changed. I have old ones still in stock to compare them to. I emailed the owner/designer of the small, feel-good, 'help the African women in a small village' company, telling her that the quality was not the same - the new ones have sharp edges and are not rounded and polished on the sides. I asked her, "What can be done?"

Instead of answering me herself, she passed the email to a co-worker whose title is "Sales". I'm fine with that. We are all busy, that's why we hire people to help us.

She responded by saying that "Unfortunately this is how they are being made." and offered an entirely different style for me to consider which has "the rounded edges I prefer". Prefer? Jewelry shouldn't be sharp.

I'll take the loss on the bad rings but went ahead and cancelled the rest of my order. About $1200 worth.

Not a big deal, but I don't like bait and switch and I expect designers to perform quality control even if their goods are made in small African villages.

In Speech on Race, FBI Director James Comey Says We All Are Biased
The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that Americans all carry bias, and called for more open discussion of the sometimes strained relationship between police and minorities.

In a speech to students at Georgetown University, FBI director James Comey quoted a Broadway song called “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist,’’ and said more work needed to be done to help police officers and people in minority communities see each other fairly.

"(FBI director, registered Republican, contributor to McCain and Romney) "

You never would have mentioned any affiliations if he were a Dem.

I don't feel the effort to post crap all the time with ulterior motives, like she does constantly. And, I had already seen the speech on PBS.

I didn't watch PBS Newshour until after I posted.

I mentioned his political affiliation and actions because it's not just Democrats who think this is a problem. If Eric Holder had made the same speech, it wouldn't mean as much to the Rhombus.

This at the closing of an email from another vendor. That's more like it!

"If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Thank you for
the opportunity to serve you!"

I like being served.

February 16, 2015 8:23 PM - rf
No, I didn't. Doing more research. But thanks for asking!
February 16, 2015 8:32 PM - Partridge
Nope. It's on a list with Iceland and most of Scandinavia which I can live without. I've been to Finland. It was a mistake.

My parents did a cruise to Alaska, Pete. They thought it was fantastic.
February 16, 2015 9:06 PM - petebklyn
I'm trying to find what to do after cruise at Denali. Don't want to be stuck on tour bus just looking at scenery.

February 16, 2015 9:13 PM - petebklyn
why you say that, Part? because it is remote, barren and unpopulated like other side of BQE?
February 16, 2015 9:18 PM - pepper
I thought old people liked to sit and look st scenery.
February 16, 2015 9:23 PM - rf
Maybe you could ride your bike to the Y there.
February 16, 2015 9:24 PM - petebklyn
luckily you are not paid to think
February 16, 2015 9:29 PM - petebklyn
I'm hoping to see russia if I go to Palin's town.

Pete, go on Trip Advisor or Lonely Planet for ideas?

Watching SW tribute. Trying to stay awake until 10, so I don't wake up at 4am. I'm very tired.

Will you go to Denali Nat'l Park?

For those who talk a lot, sometimes even monopolizing conversations, as a way of getting emotional support; it helps you move from outer dependence to emotional autonomy

Tony Bennett is 88 yrs old. Amazing energy.

That's super expensive, dudley. Tuition + airfare + hotel + food + transfers = prolly over $3k.

Fine. Maybe I should just sit in Prospect Park picking my nose. That will fer sure get me out of this horrible rut. :/ I can't even share my life plans here without people immediately pointing out the supposed flaws in any of my plans (like everywhere else!) So frustrating.
February 16, 2015 10:06 PM - Cobble B. Hiller
It's not a flaw if you can afford it. Can you afford $1800 tuition? I was just surprised at cost when I did the math in my head. Maybe there is a weekend workshop here or nearby?

I don't want to invest, or waste, any money in NYC or on anything NYC related.

February 16, 2015 10:27 PM - Cobble B. Hiller
All I can say is that you should save as much as you can, make a plan, and perhaps you can make it happen.
