Consider it done.





BTW the extra spicy chili is so I can ďraazor upĒ the head. Worth the pain of its exit.

SUWA has been trying for many years. The money that comes into Utah, especially Moab, is huge so locals and the state are pretty united against it. As we saw with Obama it just takes a signature to bypass everything and lock up huge tracts of land as a National Monument, which is impossible to undo; thatís the worst case scenario.

A: The masses who buy airline tickets based on one thing, and one thing only; low price. Airlines are simply giving most people what they demand. If people really cared about those things you list, Spirit, Frontier, SouthWest, Allegiant and all the other "discount" airlines wouldn't exist, yet they're always packed full.

If you're willing to pay more for First/Business Class, you still get large seats, meals, more leg room, better service, etc. Buy cheap tickets, get cheap service.


As I said, FC and PreCheck are the only things making flying tolerable.

I just had a flashback about fiddy years when a bunch of of us military brats spent a few days/nights with local fams in some kind of exchange. Great memories. We made friends. Hadnít thought about it in years. Thanks.

Now here's a cool idea:

https://dfwordernow.com/Stores/

You can order food and other stuff online and have it delivered to you while you wait at your gate.

No idea. Main cause is stress, not exactly a stress filled life heís living

I had it when I was 35 or so, just above my left hip it looked and felt like I was hit with a shotgun from 20 ft.

He'll be gone in less than 2 years. Gar-un-damn-tee it.

The Dems are letting him slowly decline and make more mistakes and do a lot of their really dirty work so when they push him aside (for his own good of course) they will seem like the good guys.
