I am a developer who dabbles in entomology as such I was simply thrilled to walk in and see a roach scurrying across the lobby floor. This set my hopes high for the room and I would not be disappointed! Some people read, watch the telly, play games, etc before bed. I enjoy getting out my equipment and studying insects. What can I say, we all have our hobbies.
While visiting the States for a conference in Chicago last year, I had the pleasure of eating at Ed Debevics. If you have never eaten there, the servers are a bit on the rude side for comedic effect. Based on my conversation with the desk when attempting to get a new light bulb for my room I'm assuming the attendant worked at Ed's while studying abroad in Chicago. "There is a shoppe down the way. Go get one yourself."
As far as the breakfast, it was simply delicious. The powdered eggs were served at a perfect 22C (72F). Not so hot as to burn the tongue but not so cold as to be crispy with a layer of frost. The pastries had a new green flavor enhancer on them. I have forgotten the name but it was excellent. Highly recommend.
Don't believe the negative reviews! I definitely feel I got more than my £36 worth out of my stay at this fine hotel!
I've always assumed that if you are unlucky enough to be on a jet that has to make an emergency landing for any reason, you end up on a watchlist somewhere.
Tail light out? Watchlist.
Electrical fire due to a wiring short? Watchlist.
Drunk and disorderly passenger on the same flight? Watchlist.
This is why we need local dealers only, not direct sales. Local dealers insure safety. Think of the children.
Can we please jump to the safety finish line?
No materials other than your ID, boarding pass, and a single credit card may be carried past security. Period.
No luggage may be checked.
All passengers must discard all clothing at security and travel in TSA approved hospital gowns. New clothing may be purchased outside the secure area at your destination.
Is this one of those new fancy fridges that won't open until you have watched the required number of ads?
Verizon. We're not happy until you're not happy (TM).
One of my Ohio reps hung up on me when I asked why he voted the way he did on a bill. "That is a question which is inappropriate to to ask a congressman."
Business as usual here. Nothing to see. Move along.
Why does it seem like the news stories will soon turn to what the NSA is not monitoring.
The Guardian is reporting that the NSA is not tracking the sales of bread at the grocery store on the corner of 5th and Main. Sources can confirm that other products in the store such as green beans, apricots, and chocolate syrup are being actively monitored.
