Sounds good. Did you get upgraded with your hire, or was the SVU an intermediate?

We're going to have to get something largish to cart the five of s + carseats + luggage around.

Okay. I've got Raddison, Carlson and Accor membership already (plus our Wyndham timeshare) and the one for the Value Inn chain. Can someone put together a list of all of the chains to sign up for if possible?

After I finished high school I worked casually in a shoe shop. By the time I left home I had 39 pairs of shoes. Now I usually just wear 3 pairs - sneakers, crocs and some sandals for work. I think the rest of the shoes I own are just waiting for DD to get old enough to claim (like she's already done with my Converse high tops...)

In Anaheim we rented a Dodge Ram ute - heaps of room in the tray for a queen sized bed I think, but the back seat space was woeful. Heaps of room up front for DH and me Next time we're looking at an Escalade so I can pretend I'm a VIP

I know we have discussed this before, but I just got my home and contents insurance renewal $ 1433 up from $1005 last year!

***, thats a 40% increase!!!

They sent a nice letter explaining their increases due to significant natural disasters.

Job for today to get new quotes.

Although we have 2 cars, and 2 greenslips, with them, so get significant multi policy discounts, which I think we would lose if I switch companies.

Grrr, I hate paying for insurance!!!
