re: Viking River cruise on the Danube - rsb831
We did Budapest to Nuremberg several years ago Christmas week. Kids were 19 and 17. Both sets of grandparents traveled also. We all enjoyed it. There was a family with two grade school aged kids, but other than that, my daughter was youngest of about a dozen college aged guests. They hung out to...

re: Country Covers That Beat The Pop/Rock Original - rsb831
Had no idea that the Pointer Sisters first grammy was for Best Country Vocal by Duo or Group. Fairytale in 1974. During quarantine we were listening to all sorts of stuff and the Pointer Sisters cover of Dirty Work by Steely Dan popped up and we went down a rabbit hole. I always thought of them f...

re: Best vacuum for dirt in a pool? - rsb831
I use my regular pump vacuum head but line the skimmer basket with skimmer socks that I found at pool store. They are like double layered pantyhose with elastic at top. It allows water (obviously reduced flow) but catches dirt and sand. Works well. ...

re: Any Car Rental Hacks? - rsb831
