I'm not too worried about my family, but my parents will be with us, and they aren't used to euro lifestyles. There's high potential for disaster. F...

Just booked a place in Copenhagen for 5 days in April. Planning a day in Malmø, a day at the Louisiana museum maybe a day at Tripoli, and 2-3 days in Copenhagen. Does that seem about right or too much/little time in some places? I'll have 3 kids with me so that needs to be part of the equation...

re: SpinOff Thread: Do Companies Offer A Lot Less To Their Employees - Spirit of Dunson

[quote]Employers pretty much universally require experience prior to making new hires and simply do not value training. Education costs have increased by several hundred percent. Wages are stagnant or regressing especially when factored in most people having to pay for college thru student loans. Te...
