I negotiated my last two via email. Went with a dealership 70 miles away bc the locals wanted me to come in and wouldn’t deal via email. Their loss.....ended up buying 3 new cars within 3 years from said dealership, and referred three other new purchasers in the same time period....all bc salesmen...

re: Cheap Europe Sale Mid August + Fall from NYC to Edinburgh, Barcelona, Paris - hungryone
Nope—going 9/29-10/8, departing MSY and AUS. The BA nonstops to LHR will work, but even w my Avios, the damn award ticket is $450ish. I can do United, thru Dulles, from both cities, but I am still 14k short of an award ticket. I am trying not to pay full fare for all three tix I need....

re: Leaving for London & Paris Today - hungryone
I had meals at both Relais and L’Avant in October.....sitting on the sidewalk outside Relais was a really lovely early evening in-between meal with friendly, kind service. Ordered the terrine, and received a huge, communal loaf pan. You carved out however much you could stand to eat. Just great. ...

re: Cheap Europe Sale Mid August + Fall from NYC to Edinburgh, Barcelona, Paris - hungryone
Ooh, this is killing me. Wish I could pull the trigger, but my required dates and departure cities aren’t on sale. Still looking at $1200-1300 RT for MSY-EDI or AUS-EDI. Grrr....

re: Explain to me like I'm a 5 year old about EU sim cards - hungryone
If you've got WhatsApp, you can remain connected using the free WiFi at your hotel or various other places (restaurants, bars, some malls & attractions). How often do you plan to use the phone? I managed 12 days in southern Italy & Sicily, and I only turned on data twice. The rest of the time, I ...

re: NYC hotel area recs? - hungryone
Here’s a vote for the Archer Hotel in the Garment District. Just a couple blocks off of Bryant Park, short distance from Times Square....near to touristy things without being in the middle of the wandering masses of tourists as in Times Square. Rooftop bar has a view of the Statue of Liberty. Roo...

re: What flavors of La Croix do yall get - hungryone
Lime is the only one I can drink straight.....though I’ll drink the free lemon ones left in the office fridge. All of those fruit flavors taste terrible to me. Grapefruit seems kinda sweaty, all of the melon-y ones takes synthetic....the apple stuff seems musty. Most of the time, I drink San Pe...

re: Working abroad: Anybody done it, and where are the best spots? - hungryone
I asked about languages not because of the employment angle, but rather the daily life thing. English only with no plans to acquire functional language skills can make for a miserable (or at least needlessly difficult) time if living in a place where English isn’t a second language for most of the ...

re: Super Automatic Coffee Machines - hungryone
I've used a similar Jura (not that exact model) at a friend's house....it's a pretty good shot of espresso, considering the effort. But you do have to clean the thing regularly, and it's not idiot proof or quick as Nespresso (the espresso equivalent of the convenience level of a k-cup). I have s...

[quote]even if the Dollars and cents fon’t Add up, it’s worth it because it’s the place you live, and you want what you want for your house.[/quote] Definitely not my philosophy.

re: Leaving for London & Paris Today - hungryone
The coach seats on the BA direct are narrow as hell, with an armrest that does not fully fold up. So if you're lucky enough to get a vacant seat, you can't spread over without incurring a kidney dent. Did that 2x last year, and will repeat later this year....will probably use points for the econom...

re: Additional Income - hungryone
What skills or hobbies do you have? Where do you live? What’s needed around there? In my semi-rural/peri-urban area, there is a huge need for light gardening services. Not grass mowing or edging, but hand-weeding flower beds, light hedge trimming, etc. You’d need to be basically knowledgeable...
