I don't much like either one except for Fresca and Barq's root beer. If one of those gets on board, I'll be happy. Otherwise, I like Sierra Mist better than Sprite. Don't care for cola.

Perksaver has been pretty worthless for several years. I don't think any airline is different. This is why most people now value FF miles at one cent per mile, when it used to be two cents.

I've had quite a few of those tags on my bags, and I can definitely say that they make no difference whatever in TLH or LAX. Maybe somewhere.

Whether they initiate the procedure nicely or rudely, my response is the same: I say sure, and I smile.

Or less philosophically, if they are nice, I...

Most drugs leave the body in a half-life pattern. That is, the blood level drops by half every x hours. For Valium (diazepam), the advertised x is 48. As ralfp explained, it varies a lot. The older...
