Oct 24th 2008 8:13AM I actually disagree. While it certainly is part money grab, no doubt, I'm glad that airlines will be enforcing carry on rules. Ever since they started charging for checked luggage, people have been trying to get away with bigger and bigger carry on bags. I've actually missed connection flights due to delays from so many passengers having to check their luggage at the gate because it won't fit in the overhead bins.
I'm usually a carry on only traveler, too, and while it will be annoying to lose some of my allotted space, I think the rule is overall for the better. And it will cut down on fuel costs, because every little bit adds up.

Sep 17th 2008 10:18AM Janine, I've stayed at both the Reefs and the Pompano in the last few years. The Pompano has done some upgrades within the last couple of years and in my opinion, looks and feels great. The Reefs is very nice, too, but on the question of hospitality, the Pompano is the best there is.
Sep 2nd 2008 10:37AM Hi David! Welcome to the team. I'm also a big fan of train travel, so I'm looking forward to what you'll be writing:)
Aug 19th 2008 3:05PM Craig, it would be nice if hotels did reuse the keys, but my experience (from when I worked at a resort front desk in college) is that maybe only 50% of them actually get returned when guests check out, and of that 50%, only half of those are still usable. They get damaged and demagnetized pretty easily. It sounds like the wooden versions will be less prone to damage, anyway. Now if only guests would return them.
Jul 8th 2008 10:56AM Oh my! This is hilarious:) But what do you tell the people who ask about your something blue?
Jun 10th 2008 7:37PM You're going to gag, but I feel like I'm really lucky because my husband is 100% of both of these types -- he's totally exciting and completely dependable. I think it's easier for us to have this type of relationship because we don't have kids and don't plan on them, and we're also both self-employed, which gives us the flexibility to take those moments-notice trips to Rome -- or Tennessee, as it were.
For the first several months that we were dating, I kept wondering when he'd drop the perfect man act and stop trying to impress me -- but I'm starting to actually believe it's no act:)
