Re: cheap airline tickets

I recommend booking directly with the airline 99% of the time. If you book through any discounter site, it's a giant PITA to access your reservation. "Discounted" sites are generally not very discounted, anyway, one you add in the fees. It looks like airlines servicing SF are Frontier, All...

Re: POLL Would You Want To Know If Your SO Was Having An Aff

Some of the reply's here really sadden me. Would I want to know- oh heck yeah. If my husband ever cheated on me (emotionally or physically) we would be done.

Re: "Natural" Childbirth Overrated?

My first childbirth was so traumatic that I did an elective c-section for #2. I had an epi for #1, but it wore off RIGHT when I reached 10cm. No problem, they said, I still have a good two hours of numbness! Super helpful when pushing for 3.5 hours. It took me about 6 months to physically recover fr...

Re: job interview -- advice & dust

Do people still ask "what is your weakness?" I was taught in college if they ask that, that you should list an actual flaw ad saying "I'm just too good at my job" isn't what they want. Say something not TOO bad and then expand on what you're specifically doing to correct this fl...

Re: How far would you go for a pet?

It would depend on the age and general health of the pet. Our bulldog had to have surgery for kidney stones. She was maybe 4 at the time and in good health. Our other bulldog's stomach flipped. She was about 9, and life expectancy for bulldogs is around 7 years. We were told that there was a 50% cha...

Re: Sister-in-law's Destination Wedding: How Much Is Too Muc

Regarding the trip coordinator fee, I spoke to her again and she said that the majority of their budget is going to go towards chipping in on people's rooms to mitigate some of the cost… I guess that they are going to pay $400 per person, which then brings the cost down to $2600 for the cruise… sti...

Re: Sister-in-law's Destination Wedding: How Much Is Too Muc

If the airfare and cruise work out to $4800, you should budget a lot more. Not only will you need a hotel room for the arrival and departure nights (don't try to go straight from the airport to the docks or, even worse, from the dock to the airport - things will go wrong), taxi fare to and from the...

I think it could be cd15 or 18. I would have liked to have seen more temps prior to 15 to decide for sure. My charts often look like that- I almost always O when my temp is 96.8.
