Beauty And The Beast, the 1991 Disney animated feature, won multiple Oscars and Grammys, and the original Broadway production of the show won a Tony, while the 1997 West End version won an Olivier Award. Whether or not Disney’s 2017’s live feature version of the story that starred Emma Watson will have any Oscar feathers to add to its B&TB cap has yet to be seen, but right now you can have your own Beauty and The Beast celebration at The Town House at Kensington Hotel, in London, in the form of their “Tale As Old As Time Tea.” As far as I can tell, it sounds like a definite winner for any Disney fan!

As per Town House at The Kensington’s website, “This delightful Afternoon Tea, named

Man Accidentally Shoots Self At Orlando Airport

There’s a list of things you are NOT supposed to do at the airport. You are not allowed to bring liquids larger than 3 oz. in your carry on bags. You should not talk about bombs, explosives or any similar topics around the secure area. Well, can now add to that list:

Are The Changes To The Citi Prestige Card Good or Bad?

On July 23rd, changes to the Citi Prestige card went into effect. These changes were announced last July and all cardholders, new and existing, would be able to take advantage of the (then-current) benefits until the changes. The extended notice was likely due to Citi being unable to change stated benefits of the card for present cardholders In the end, I feel  they were very up front about the changes that were happening and handled it the best way they could.

So what changed? Here are the changes announced last year:

How To See The Country (Or The World!) A Few Days At A Time

Joe and I are, I realize, very lucky in that we get to travel as much as we do. Part of that is because Joe’s a whiz with points and miles, which stretches our dollars further. But part of it is also because we plan our trips wisely, utilizing weekends whenever possible. As it is, we generally only do one “long” (read: 1 full week, occasionally longer) vacation per year and the rest really fit more into the “long weekend” category (usually Wednesday or Thursday through Sunday or Monday or so).

Some people get to travel all the time, albeit for work. But I’m sure most of them go to

“Dear RyanAir,”: The Funniest Complaint Letter Ever Written To An Airline

If you’ve read this travel blog for any length of time, you may notice that we try to do things “our way.” That’s simply because this blog is really an extension of us.  Joe will write about points and miles because he’s into that and I will often write about “human interest” travel stuff because that’s what I like (and yeah, the weirder the better). And both of us will call a spade a spade and if we don’t like something, we’ll say it. Such is the case with RyanAir.

Free Concert Tickets – Check Your Ticketmaster Accounts

If you’re gone to see any live event in the United States, it’s more than likely you’ve bought a ticket from Ticketmaster. That’s the company you pay a “convenience fee” to for every ticket you purchased even if you’re buying right at the box office. There was a huge class action lawsuit named the Schlesinger v. Ticketmaster Class Action that settled in 2013 and you may have received a benefit as a result, but you have to look for it.
