a few actually. It saddens me, as I am only 30.
One of them gets updated a few times a year by a family member on a birthday or holiday, and it freaks me the hell out to see an update on my news feed.
It's shocking at first, but it's nice to click in and reminisce....

Yeah, they are legit, as are the Living Social Escapes. Some of the destinations are a little sketchy, but many are highly rated on travel sites. Like others have said, it's just advertising and trying to fill rooms during off seasons.
It's all based on availability, so it's always best to call t...

I can't wait until the Huracan comes out. I prefer realistic supercars, and I think the Huracan will be huge success.
Small like the Gallardo, but with 600hp. A 458 killer.

17th fairway. Started in the long rough. A few people were trying to put it out with their water bottles.
After a few minutes of that, the people just kept playing. By the time the FD got out there, it spread across the fairway.

In some instances, cases can be cancelled or rescheduled, so they end up lett...
