Since the theme today is travel, I thought I would share a tip. Make sure anyone who travels outside of the country drinks a coca-cola. Almost all countries outside of the US, make there coke still with Cane Sugar, US only uses High-Fructose Corn Syrup, gross.
Except for those few weeks during the Jewish holiday of Passover.

They can pretty much do whatever you need for about $5 per hour plus in some instances a task fee. Security is excellent. Need flowers sent, bills paid, tickets booked, research done, house plans made and blue printed, legal opinions and research, car hire, financial planning, asset allocation, adoption (yes), property management/tenant screening, college transcript requests and applications, wedding planning and vendor procurement, health care appointments and on and on and on. Get it done-------.
Forget food shopping with the dragging kids and heavy bundles and door dings in you brand new car while having to go out in the crappy cold weather. Simply give your Get Friday Virtual Assistant a list with when you want it delivered and have them go to Peapod and get it DONE!
Just wait at home for delivery in your Lebowski bath robe and tell the guy to bring it in to the kitchen. You just saved hours of aggravation for 5 bucks and can now spend all that extra time with your family or sleeping in, or watching the Sox...
Need research done--- submit what you are looking for, and overnight while you sleep, they work during their the day and send you the answers. Soooo Money.

Smaller, brighter, prettier and less expensive! Isn't technology wonderful! This 18 LED light bulb makes an excellent high definition reading light. Perfect to help you not feel guilty about leaving an accent light on all night. Run it for twelve hours a day for a whole year at a cost of about 80 cents. This LED light bulb should last about 10 years, and works well with a dimmer switch. Your choice of 120 or 12 volts bulbs available.
Light emitting diodes, called LEDs, are revolutionizing lighting. Switching to LED-based lighting can save 40 to 70 percent of the electricity a city uses for certain lighting applications such as parking garage, parking lot, outdoor public area, street and portable lighting.
In addition to helping protect the environment by reducing electricity consumption of lighting, LEDs, due to their long service life, also reduce the amount of material going into landfills (i.e., light bulbs). Furthermore, LEDs, unlike some traditional light sources, don't contain hazardous mercury or lead.

Mr Blass. strongly urges travelers to avoid Heathrow airport in London at all costs. Instead fly to Stansted, Gatwick or Amsterdam to avoid the mess.
Chismillionare likes Frankfurt from Boston on Lufthansa. Gets you centrally located to the continent.
Arthur Bergman says not to trust the airlines with flight updates. Instead, go to www.flightaware.com to get an up to the minute status of all aircraft in the sky and allows you to check for delays. If it tells you your plane is late try rebooking immediately before everyone else is doing the same.
