Cruise Ship Vs Assisted Living: Would You Do It? PDF Print E-mail


A USA Today article mused about a choice of being in an old age home or enjoying a full-time sailing of the seven seas. At first glance, the idea seems insanely unbelievable. However, considering the ever-rising costs of senior facilities, it isn’t so far-fetched.

Today’s monthly fees in senior homes are near $4,000, about $134 a day per person. A typical long cruise averages $140 a day for two people, plus many included perks. Senior homes don’t usually feature all-you -can-eat buffets, live entertainment, spas, midnight dances, excursions and other seagoing fun.

Of course, there are many other factors involved that can drastically change the costs. However, just the thought of spending our sunset years doing something other than staring at the walls in a nursing home hallway. For instance, listening to a calypso band while watching the sunset over the beach and palm trees along a Caribbean shoreline.

 
AeroMobil 3.0: Winged-Car To Fly Thru The Air PDF Print E-mail


According to CNN Money, the AeroMobil 3.0 may take to the air soon. The Slovakian maker claims that the vehicle "transforms in seconds from an automobile to an airplane" by using "existing infrastructure created for automobiles and planes."

The 20-foot-long AeroMobil 3.0 is gas-powered, and has folding wings, so it can park on the ground. The company's web site shows the flying car driving from a hangar and proceeding along the highway until it gets to a take-off location.

It then unfolds its wings and takes off, either from a stretch of grass or a paved tarmac. It can fly like any other small airplane. Hmmm, does this remind you of a favorite airborne family from many years ago?

WOW Air Ads Offer $99.99 Tickets To Europe, But... PDF Print E-mail


Good bargains, but why do they do the snarky 99¢ routine in their ads? Actually, the $99.99 one-way price quotes are before taxes and other charges. Why not reveal the real, out-of-pocket costs? Compared to most other airlines, they’re still a great bargain.

Taxes add another $50. The return flight is about $120. Checked bags could add another $50. Buy a seat upgrade: $20. For example, a total WOW round trip from Boston to Reykjavik may cost $400, not bad when compared with major airline lowest rate averages of $1,500.
