re: Travel bags: Anyone have a rec for carry on bags for flight? - JustinTI
I'd highly reccommend a bag without wheels for your carry on. They are much lighter and can hold more stuff (since they don't have a frame and wheels). They also give you much more flexibility when travelling with only a carry on because it is much easier to go up stairs, take trains, etc. Both...

re: Going to take a day trip in Tuscany from Siena - JustinTI
I'd head to the Montalcino region. Definitely consider doing a tasting at Uccelliera. On your way or afterwords, swing by the Sant'Antimo Abbey. Ciacci Piccolomini is also in that area. I'd do lunch in Sant'Angelo in Colle at Il Pozzo or Il Leccio. Constanti, Pian dell'Orino, and Casanova di ...

re: Jimbo and Muschamp NOT "done"....yet - JustinTI
Here is Miles's contract. It has been extended, but I do not believe the actual language has changed for anything else. [link=(http://media.ledger-enquirer.com/static/SEC-Coaching-Contracts/LSU/LSU-Les-Miles-Contract-Amendments.pdf)]Contract[/link] Based on a pretty plain reading of it, it ...

re: New Orleans Global Entry Interview - JustinTI
You could try walking up and just waiting for an interview. I did it on a layover in Miami before they had a NOLA Global Entry. We signed up our son recently and brought him to the MSY Global Entry a couple months before his scheduled interview with no problems. There is always the possibility th...

re: The Folly of Dividend Stocks - JustinTI
[quote]quote: In your example, assuming an efficient market and that the company's dividend is covered by operating cash flows, wouldn't the $10 company value already assume the business has at least $1 of capital to either reinvest or distribute to shareholders? Yes, exactly, and that capital is ...

re: Why no Quality Junior Class pitcher on this team - JustinTI
[quote]You know what's fricking stupid? The fact that PM and Dunn knew they weren't going to have Latz and Marshall, since last fall and couldnt produce a third starter because they didnt recruit the talent like Vandy and UCLA. That's not fricking stupid, that's the fricking reality.[/quote] Lat...

[quote]That's great you have that many but what do you do about 80+ cards annual fees? [/quote] Pretty much what Teddy said...The vast majority of annual fees are waived for the first year. After that, I cancel most of the cards. Some (like the Citi AA), I'll call up and get the annual fee waiv...

[quote]ou can get Global Entry for free and $200 in travel expenses reimbursed on that card. Plus Starwood Gold. It's certainly worth it for a year considering those benefits plus the 100k points. Yeah, I'd jump on that offer in a heartbeat. I never get the 100k offer though. I'm about to do GE ...

re: A Chef's Perspective - JustinTI
On wine...How do y'all feel when someone brings in their own wine? I'm not talking about a cheapskate bringing in 2 buck chuck, but a nice bottle. I ask because I have a decent wine collection and will bring wine to dinner probably about one out of every three meals. If the wine list is availab...

Good thread...Love LaBoca. The last time we went, my wife got the skirt steak and it was delicious. I have a little bit of a love/hate relationship with skirt steak when cooking at home. One will have great texture and flavor, then the next one will be chewy and dull...And it varies even when I...

ETA - No longer available. Anyone have an American Airlines flight this month? I have a single SWU left that I'm not going to use, and they've gotten strict about not applying them to flights post expiration - which has caught me off guard. I know we have some fellow frequent flyer geeks here, ...

Couple thoughts on Pacific point travel... Air Tahiti Nui partners with Delta and AA and flies to Tahiti from the US. But they are not the only option. Air France (Skyteam) flies LAX-PPT. It was one of the sweet spots in the Delta award chart (relatively speaking)...when DL actually had an awa...
