You mean it isn't "Big Old Carolina", but "big old Jet Airliner"?

already ready for today to be over. Very tired, very bored, yawn.

That's nice.

Now if the winery could just fix the glitch when there's large graphics (or a lot of small ones) in the thread, and refreshing doesn't put you where you were (or clicking on on "last post" either).

Send rain.
We have fires to put out, and reservoirs to fill.

Understand your point. But not sure I can see 650 ft. in clear weather.

We got a little over 2 inches on Sunday. Put a serious dent in my Mother's Day plan to spend some quality time with a certain chaise lounge by the pool.

Imagine how tired you would be if you lived somewhere that 650 ft driveway could be filled with snow instead of rain!

Question for the air travelers. We're going to go on a flight this summer. I'm thinking of my wife and I flying in first class, and the kids, age 9&12, in coach. I tend to have anxiety around flying, and it is much less when I don't have to wait in line so long to get on the plane, or through TSA. We'd have the kids in economy comfort, so they'd be able to board at the same time.

Thoughts? I'm inclined to do it since they are old enough and fly well.

As someone with well over a million flight miles, I'm not sure what the question really is?

Also, depending on which airline you fly, it is WAAAAAYYY cheaper to book an economy ticket and buy the upgrade on confirmation than to book an actual first class seat. Of course, you'd need to check if there was FC availability regardless.

Did you finalize your destination?

So, you wouldn't have a problem flying first and kids in coach? Glad to know I wouldn't be the only one who thought to do this...

This is a different destination, than what we've discussed. Still haven't made up our mind about that...

Looked at upgrading to first after buying coach, and it was the same price. Ticket price jumped now, since it is in the afternoon, so will probably buy in the am.

It's really not that different than any other time you have to sit a few rows away from the kids... so long as your kids won't keep running up to you in First and annoying all the other passengers, NBD.

Check your PMs and just keep me informed

Yeah, technically it's not "upgrading" the ticket. On low (business) volume flights many airlines will offer you "upgrade to first" at the same time they offer more legroom, priority boarding, or any of a hundred other "extras" during the purchase. IF they offer, it can be a steal. As for instance, I just went to NYC from Denver on about 12 days notice. Price for a Frist class seat was ~$1200. Price for my cattle class seat was $210. Even before finalizing my seat purchase, the first class offer was to pay ~$350. It just depends on the airline, historical loading factors for that flight, how close to departure date, etc. Of course, this is only possible on the airline website, not other agencies.

Enjoy your vacation!

ok, I am in a sarcastic mood, ..just watched a news story about kids being left in cars during the summer. One mother says she taught her children what to do if they are left in a car... they are to get to the front seat and honk the horn until someone comes for them... my question is why didn't she teach them how to unlock and open the car door? they appeared to be 4+..... ok sarcasm over....

None of that makes sense. Who else would be leaving them in the car but the mother?

I understand that in certain areas, families will make arrangements with other families to share driving duties, aka "carpool" their kids to school, events, etc. picking up and dropping the kids off.

At least that's what I've heard, anyway.

we have had a rash of day car workers as well as parents who are so busy, they forget their kids in the car.. and sadly a bunch of the kids don't survive....

edit: Mine son and his tech team, designed last year, a device that would alert the parents if they left their car and the child was left. The strange thing is, the design was so good, they had the judges telling them to patent it. They did a patent search, only to find out some company (I, don't remember which) had designed something similar.....

We have the best of both worlds here in the Lake Erie snow belt. We get our fair share of rain and the occasional flash flood, like the one 2 days ago that trapped local FOX-8 weatherman, 83 year old D.i.c.k Goddard, in his car with water that rose up to his neck.

Here he is before being rescued, with the water still around shoulder level.

Goddard was the weatherman when I was a kid in Ohio, a loooong time ago. Does he still do the Woolley Bear Festival in Vermillion? I marched in that parade probably 4 or 5 times in the 70's.
