re: Global Entry is well worth the time and money! - hungryone
I used it for the first time in May, returning from London. It made the exit at NOLA easy-peasy if you didn't have to wait for a checked bag. (Yet another reason to never check a bag.)...

re: Flying United for the first time ever, anything I should know? - hungryone
I had to laugh out loud at your comments. My better half and I have a running list of the places we've encountered LSU logo clothing....we never seem to see any other SEC teams' logos when we travel, just the good ol' purple and gold. Walking down the street in Orvieto, walking along the Thames in...

re: Whats your thoughts on packing cubes? - hungryone
They definitely take up some space....but if you are not a chronic bag-overstuffer desperate for extra centimeters, cubes keep you sane on a long trip with a limited wardrobe. You easily distinguish clean from dirty, can pack by category (pants, shirts) or by outfit/things you will wear day by day...

Jeni's, though it is stupidly expensive (like $9/pint) and only sold at Whole Foods in these parts. Talenti gelato is the best available at your average WalMart....

re: Lump crabmeat on steaks - hungryone
Agreed that crabmeat atop a steak always seems a waste. Make little ramekins of devilled crab or crab au gratin to serve as an appetizer, or small bite-sized crab cakes. Or savory crab beignets....or pretty much anything other than piling it atop a piece of red meat....

re: Lightweight luggage recs - hungryone
I'm 5'3" and I feel your pain. Travel pro Maxlite 4 does the trick for me. 19" international expandable 'spinner weighs just 5 lbs empty. Loaded up, it is abt 15 lbs; I can easily put it into the overhead without assistance. Paired with the spacious underseat tote, I can pack for 10 days. The M...

re: Taking a trip to Scottsdale - Restaurant suggestions? - hungryone
No I apparently have a serial downvoter. My Valley Ho experience was more like 20+ years ago...the place was decent, but a bit down at the heels, long before mid-century modern had become chic again. I was traveling with a coworker whose parents had been married/honeymooned in Scottsdale 30 years ...

re: Taking a trip to Scottsdale - Restaurant suggestions? - hungryone
Eons ago, I took my first grown up business trip to a conference in Scottsdale & stayed at the Valley Ho, just a block or so from the Old Town Tortilla Factory....so that name brought back some memories, LOL. I can't say that I remember the food, but I can recall the patio misters and the margarita...

re: Whats your thoughts on packing cubes? - hungryone
I use them. Esp for a long trip, it's nice to organize clothing into categories--tops, pants, socks, etc--and be able to quickly find something. I seem to use the smaller ones more often. Roll, don't fold, and you'll have fewer wrinkles....

re: What do you think about paying tuition based on your major? - hungryone
Untrue that 10 yrs ago a 24 got you funding at most schools. Twenty five years ago (pre score adjustment that added a few points) it took at least a 28 to get decent cash out of a school like LSU. 30+ got a full ride at LSU. But nowadays, any schmo gets TOPS....even those with no real interest in...
