The cost was very reasonable, within a few dollars of renting a dumpster myself. They guys were nice and efficient. I highly recommend them to anyone that needs debris/junk removal. Kevin, the owner, was great!

Sri Lanka/ Maldive

The writer travelled with Kuoni (01306 747008; <>), which offers seven nights at Baros Maldives in a deluxe villa with breakfast from £1,134. This includes return SriLankan Airlines flights from Heathrow and transfers.

The capital, Male, is served by SriLankan Airlines (020-8538 2000; <>), which flies non-stop three times a week from Heathrow and daily via Colombo; there are no non-stop flights in the homeward direction, with passengers routed via Colombo - or, taking advantage of SriLankan's relationship with Emirates (0870 243 2222; <>), via Dubai. Emirates offers connecting services to and from Birmingham, Gatwick, Glasgow, Heathrow and Manchesters. Qatar (020-7896 3636; <> ) also flies from Heathrow and Manchester via Doha.

Charter flights from Gatwick and Manchester are available with Monarch (08700 405040; <>), MyTravel (0870 241 5333; <>) and First Choice (0870 850 3999; <>).

To reduce the impact on the environment, you can buy an "offset" from Climate Care (01865 207 000; <>). The environmental cost of a return flight from London to Male, in economy, is 18.40. The money is used to fund sustainable energy and reforestation projects.

Great CNN article: Going on vacation? Here's how to stay healthy

Published August 14, 2008.
1. If you're worried about the food or water, bring an antibiotic with you
2. Consider buying travel health insurance
3. Get your shots   - Adult vaccines: You may need a shot in the arm. If you can't remember vaccinations, you might benefit from a booster.

4. Learn about your destination
5. Watch what you eat and drink, and where you swim

Travel Tip:  Take a photo of your suitcase - if it is lost, then you can show them the picture instead of describing it.  Take a photo of the contents that you would list in case it is stolen.


Pickpocket scam: They put up a sign that says "Beware of pickpocketers". You see the sign, your hand goes to where your money is hidden. They are watching. They relay the information to an pickpocketer a block away, and they know exactly where to pick to get your money!

Gift idea for aging driver:  Sell the aging driver's car, put the money in an interest-bearing account, and contract with a local cab company to be available. Instead of billing, they send itemized statment and add 20 % gratuity.  Dear Abby article - the daughter who set this up said the taxi drivers actually came to her mom's funeral!






Knock, knock.

         Who's there?


          Economist, who?

"I conna missed the financial crisis, but I promise I'll do better next time"


Micro economists are wrong about specific things

Macro economists are wrong about general things


The only sure way I know of to double your money is to fold it over once, and put it back in your pocket.

Things are more like they are today than they ever before

Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.

Slacker traveler fesses up
Daryn Kagan

Do you travel or do you vacation?

There is a difference. Because, Dear Reader, you know whether you venture around the world or head out to a local campsite, they are two very different things.

Travel is work. Vacation is time to exhale.

No one, and let me be clear, no one, can travel like my friend, Craig. He researches every nook and cranny of a new destination like my dog sniffing out a long buried bone.  His guidebooks have more dog ears than the local animal shelter.

Take his family’s recent trip to San Francisco, for example.  There was the photo opp in front of the hospital where his son was born 17 years ago, a visit to Hawk Hill in the Marin Headlands, lunch with a dear friend, over the Golden Gate Bridge, twisty Lombard Street, Ghiradelli Square, Palace of Fine Arts, Land’s End, The Castro, dinner in North Beach.  That was Saturday — one single day.

Yes, it’s true my husband can put together some incredible trips using his miles hobby. It’s also true that once we arrive, we become, what is a kind word, yes, slackers.  Well, by Craig standards anyway.

And you, Dear Reader?

Does the idea of leaving a single attraction unseen make you tremble?

Or have you also been known to not fight jet lag and sleep in until 2 p.m.?

I’m not saying that did or didn’t happen last week in Barcelona. But I did email Craig from Europe with our travel confession.

“Forgive me Travel God, for I have transgressed. Today, we let the teens sleep in until 3 p.m., visited only a single attraction, and ate only one full meal. The kids think the Spanish word for dinner is, ‘gelato.’”

This is not to say one way of going on a trip is better than the other.

I love that we go. I also kind of love that we don’t do it all.

To you, the Craig-worthy traveler, I bow to you and your ability to gobble up every crumb an adventure has to offer.

And to you, my fellow slacker, you who are happy to dig your toes in the sand, exhale, and delight in not having it all, I say, “Where are we booking our next trip?”

2008 Christmas in sunny Florida on the St. Johns river with Priscilla:


It's not what the world holds for you. It's what you bring to it.  - Ann of Green Gables.


When peace eludes me. It is becuase I have bought into the world's view of peace


Until the age of 25, you have the face that your mother gave you. From 25 to 50, you have the face you have created. From 50 onward, you have the face you deserve!


God only reveals Himself to those who seek Him.  Jer 29:13

God speaks to those who listen

God leads those who are willing to follow
