Was never a huge fan of Star Trek or Stargate or similar shows, but this series is oddly compelling. It's pretty dark.

Yup. It's great getting to the airport at pretty much any time and being guaranteed getting on an airplane in less than an hour to your destination.

I also really liked the Delta MD80 shuttle. Snag an exit row on one of those puppies, disembark on the back stairs, and I was at my car within 5 min. at LGA. Our office in DC is in Crystal City so I'd often just walk off the plane, into the terminal, snag a Dunkin' just outside security, and walk across the flyover into our office. All in 10 min. flat.

Next week I'll be doing DCA - LGA - BOS one afternoon for the miles.

In fact, the publicity surrounding the news that Marriott will be pulling porn from its in-room entertainment systems had people smirking throughout the conference.
Sir Richard and *wood seem to be the only people in the travel industry that try and make travel sexy and glamorous from top to bottom.

Remembering the 10 members of the Oklahoma State men's basketball team that died in a horrible plane crash 10 years ago this week. It came on the heels of our bonfire collapse when I was at A&M, and it really hit everyone hard.

My old password was strong and secure, but if someone managed to get it and figure out where else I go online, they'd have access to me on a variety of other sites.

Well, I hope I did the right thing. After BBQ Thursday with Starwood Lurker, I stopped by the Target across the street to get a baby shower gift for my cousin as directed by my wife.

Upon receipt and review of the registry list, no one had bought the new kid any diapers.

That has all changed.

GNC ususally has it. And read the labels as concentrations vary - moar is moar.

ETA: Look for cream versions too

I'd say SPG has a good thing going with W and Le Meridien brands. However, Hyatt has some pretty plush properties, as well. Hyatt Regency DFW was a refreshing change from most airport properties I've stayed at. And that's just an airport property - they have some real properties out there.
