Hello Mr. Malamud,

I believe that we are related. One of my Cousin's was the late Bernard Malamud. I met a Dr. Malamud on a cruise a few years back who was also related.Please see your Private Messenger for more!!!!!!

I hope to run into you on a Delta Flight and it would be an honor to read your new book.

Best,

Daniel

I sell coins & paper money; self-employed, and travel about once a month on average to a major convention in the US to purchase inventory which I then sell online and directly to collectors. Go to Europe and Asia twice a year for the same purpose, although the trips to Asia are more an excuse to go out there then the actual business I do there.

I'm an attorney with a federal regulatory practice. I have clients in more than 40 states.

Not only have I been to all 50 states, I have photographed the inside and outside of all state capitol buildings. Someday I intend to publish an e-book about my travels.

I've also been to 7 Canadian provinces plus the Yukon. I'm hoping to get to the other 3 provinces, Northwest Territory and Nunavut someday.

I find punctuation and spelling errors in the business writing of others.

Couldn't resist.

Seriously, I am self employed and travel on my own dime for fun right now, but hoping to tie it into business again in the near future.

I develop large wind, solar, and energy storage projects across the Americas and work for a company based in Europe.

My weekly travel ranges from rides on Beechcraft 1900s to 747s depending on where I'm headed. Mostly gone for 1 or 2 nights a week but nearly all trips include 6 - 30 hrs of travel time.

I'm an unofficial, self appointed, FlyerTalk Delta Air Lines Deputy Diamond data collection consultant. The position has a pay scale of $zero. I'm charged with reporting good, and EVIL stories to the public as I see them happen, in the world of Delta frequent flying!













aka: Travel for pleasure ONLY! Single and free!
Been to 65 countries (I think) and 49 states.
Travel ridiculously cheaply, or I don't go!
TGF GUCs!
