U.S. Airways: Peasant Passengers Can Dine Like Kings

In an attempt to give coach passengers a taste of what it’s like to sit in those expensive roomy seats up front, U.S. Air offers a new dining gimmick. It’s called a premium meal option, which means for $19.99 more you can get airline food that’s actually edible.

With the fancy name of DineFresh, it means the cabin crew will unfreeze a meal that may actually seem to be made by a flying chef laboring with unfrozen ingredients. Sorta brings back the good old days when airline meals were simply included in your fare.

Holy Holograms! The Next Big Show Biz Hit? PDF Print E-mail

Forget about the Grateful Dead and TV’s Walking Dead. Get ready for the singing and dancing dead! Liberace will soon be up there on stage again in Las Vegas!

Liverpool, England: Ultimate Beatles Fan Destination PDF Print E-mail

First Person Report: Loyal Beatles fans since we first saw the Fab Four 51 years ago on a small, black-and-white TV screen. It was on that February 9th night when they performed live on the Ed Sullivan TV Show.

Several years ago, on a visit to London, we took the journey north to see the city where the mop-haired quartet got their start. It’s a two-hour train ride from London Euston Station to Liverpool Lime Street Station.

Cruising Safety Tips For Smooth-Sailing Seniors PDF Print E-mail

Cruising is statistically much safer than flying and driving. However, cruise ship problems, such as health and cleanliness issues, always make the news.

Seniors cruise because they’re very convenient. Once aboard, everything is just a few steps away: entertainment, pools, spas, sunning, scenery and dining. When visiting ports, there are excursions, shopping, and other diversions.

A cruise vacation can be even more enjoyable when you’re constantly aware of safety. These five key tips help make your sailings a pleasant experience:

Bring All Daily Meds x 2: Check with your physician before sailing and stock up for double the number of days of the cruise. This allows for unexpected delays that could result in running out of meds.

In case of emergency illness or injury aboard, carry proof of insurance, Medicare, and other applicable IDs. If you take special med equipment, be sure it's in good working condition.

The U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. celebrates its 80th birthday this year. Based on the ancient Parthenon in Athens, it’s one of several well-known copies throughout the world.
