A World In Flux

     So many things in the headlines today.  Egypt's protests may have given the people what they have been demanding.  As I write this, Pres. Hosni Mubarak is expected to speak to the people of Egypt.  They are expecting that he will board a jet for some part of the world unknown for exile.  The military appears to be behind the people.  As I have said before, the rest of the world hopes that this ancient country will settle down so that the rest of the world can come visit and feel safe.

Caribbean Princess - Bonaire
     I have been so disgruntled with airlines lately, with adding fees, cutting back on services, making seats smaller...HECK...even charging you to call them to ask for help.  I am waiting with great anticipation on the finalization of the merger between Southwest Airlines and AirTran, which should be before June.  The Southwest family will roll out their great way of doing service to all the locations that AirTran currently serves, including Atlanta, JFK, and San Juan!  YES!  Southwest will begin flying to San Juan Puerto Rico, which is great news for those of you who have a bucket list item of cruising the Southern Caribbean, and visiting islands such as Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao (ABC Islands).  I say great, because airfare is better than competitive compared to other major carriers there.  No baggage fees. (WOOHOO!).  Really fun flight crews who make your flight much more bareable.  I am a huge Southwest Airlines fan and will fly them as much as possible.  I even own a Southwest Visa Card, which gives me even more rewards, FASTER, than the other carriers.  When flying other carriers, I feel punished and being sent to the corner by mommy, wearing a dunce cap.  I can't wait for more transportation options that will get us from here to there without feeling like a second class citizen who is forced to use what is available.  We need:
  • Bullet Trains
  • Bring back the Zeppelin
  • Jettson type cars
aelous airship travel
     For you basketball fans, those who have hated Jerry Sloan because of the excellent record of the Utah Jazz, will cheer today.  Jerry will no longer be coaching.  This is breaking news.  Sad end of an era.

We Are Here For You.
