    Howdy Box. DC-bound, assuming there’s anything left when I arrive.

    That's the second consecutive stay at this Marriott that I've been woken up by an earthquake. Minor, but gets the adrenaline flowing nonetheless...

    Pizza anyone? I may have won the Jetblue Pizza sweepstakes. I just need to figure it it is worth paying taxes on the 1300$ value of the prize.

    I think I'm going to take a sabatical for awhile. Between the 404 and 504 errors, I can barely get on and when I finally do manage it, I discover we've picked up a new I.T. :rolleyes:

    Flag!

    Should be “Vijf Kerels”

    I’m very disappointed.

    A guy I work with, his dad got a Delta flight diverted, returned, and emergency landed. Why? He noticed a hydrolic leak on a wing. No something you want flying TATL.

    Saturday in Kaua'i went just as planned. Breakfast at Kountry Kitchen followed by shopping for the week. The Farmers Market was freakin' awesome, but quite a hassle for parking. Peach's handicapped placard is going to come in handy this week!

    Costco is a different experience here, but they have most of the same things... and, surprisingly, most of the same prices as the mainland. But... packing all of our shopping plus our luggage in this Ford Mustang convertible is fun. Top down (of course) and load the luggage into the back seat with the groceries in the back. Oh crap, top up for the rain on the trip up the coast.

    Arriving at the Westin Princeville, I leave Peach to work the the bellmen and our mountain of luggage and groceries. Check-in was very efficient and courteous, offering room alternatives to be closer to parking. The bellman went above and beyond. Within 5-min of reaching our room, they call us to arrange for delivery of half of Costco, plus most everything we own. He shows up a few minutes later, and begins to unload... including unpacking the groceries into the fridge.

    Sunday we'll check out a couple of beaches and head to the East cost to visit of friend near Popui.

    They value the package at 1300$ so that gs why Zi may not accept the prize

    Well, heck. Seriously, unless it has to be in your name, I'd totally pay the taxes to use that. Taxes would be significantly less than a RT from PDX to NYC...

    Took the voucher. I can use it from JFK so it’s a no brainer.

    Does the voucher have residual value, or is it just good for a RT to/from JFK? If residual value, then you can get your taxes-worth of the $1300 value. If just a RT, I guess you could dispute the value.

    Either way, congrats on the win.

    If I am smart about it I could get good value from it. Good morning box
