Dec 10th 2007 3:53PM Catherine, its pretty ironic that the ads by google at the bottom of the page this is on is
"Quality Nalgene Bottles", at a great price.
Keep drinking as much water as you can handle.

Oct 9th 2007 6:04PM I always got ill about 5 days after a flight, if the flight lasted more than 3 1/2 hours. (Mostly I fly just up and down the West Coast, and that never made me sick). This happened at least 20 times. I did everything from hydrating, washing, scrubbing down the tray table with disinfection wipes, etc. Nothing helped. But I have made the last 4 longer flights using Airborne (or the cheap Wal Mart generic) before, during and after for a day, and have not been sick. So whether it is a placibo or real, it works for me.
Thanks for your good reads Catherine. Beth in Maltby
Thanks for pointing out the article Catherine.
Sep 24th 2007 4:04PM I like this idea. I usually have a dozen e-mails from car rentals, hotels, airlines, golf tee times, etc. And to make it worse I use two different e-mail accounts, so they are never in the right place.
Your Mother is a concerned one, like mine. So many times I call her and she asks what have I been doing, and a response like I just got back from Washington DC or the like, is not good when I never said I was going in the first place.
Sep 11th 2007 11:23AM I think they were always fibbing about this. It really took longer, so you are right not to trust them. John applied, and then the timeframe did not really start until the cashed the check for the application, which was about 3 weeks later.
I would wait until after the holidays too!
Aug 26th 2007 10:11PM I have stayed at 5 of these 10. Phantom Ranch ranks highest, because after a long day on a mule to get there, beer has never been so refreshing! Jenny Lake Lodge is surrounded by great hiking, Ahwahee, you can just sit and enjoy the view (great gift shops). Zion was a little disapointing, rather basic, but had no TV's which was great as I was there three days after 9-11, and having only a one page newspaper headline was great as we wanted to get away. (most of these lodges have no TV). Crater Lake lodge is a sentimental favorite, as my mother and father spent their honeymoon there in 1948.
Love you columns Catherine, see you next week!!
