Out and about…….

The weather in Germany these past two days has been glorious, in sharp contrast to the misery that is going on across the Atlantic in the land of my birth. I’ve got plenty to say on the selfishness and cruelty that the orange asshole is inflicting on America, but as they say, there is always […]

Home for awhile and glad of it.

It was a long week down in the land of milk and honey,  but got back Friday and have spent the week recuperating. The days were long and I logged a lot of miles around Yisrael. Speaking of roads, I had to get out on Friday instead of staying to hit the long ball because […]

Whirlwind

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. The Friday after Labor Day, I boarded a plane for California, Los Angeles to be specific to do work out on the west coast for a week. I left early because I wanted time to adjust to the time change and also to take the opportunity to revisit […]

Speaking of Ships

The S.O. and I made our first cruise ever on the Splendor of the Seas last year. It was her last year sailing for Royal Caribbean, as it had been announced she was being sold to TUI Cruises. We thought the crew did a good job seeing the ship out in style and we loved […]

So much for brand loyalty

United Airlines this year-decided to say a cheery “fuck you” to its loyal passengers closing in on Million Mile status ( and thus lifetime Gold Membership) like me. They decided to f*ck me at the drive through: LAST week, United Airlines announced a modification to its frequent-flyer programme, MileagePlus, that could change business travel as […]

More Berlin Pix

It is Saturday and doing errands today for the S.O. while she is out shopping for pottery. ( Like she really needs any more of it!). So a stop at the library seemed in order. The great internet drought may be ending next week, Vodafone is supposed to install a line next week. Just in […]
