Angry man

Screening can make you feel like screaming

Because of recent terrorist scares, annoying airport security routines are getting to be even more of a pain. Raise your hand if you’ve ever been tempted to raise your hand against a pushy ATC airport security guard who gets too personal or tosses everything out of your carry-on bag. OK, that’s everyone in the class. Seriously, no matter how angry you get about your experience in that gauntlet of humiliation called airport screening, keep your cool.

Las Vegas at night

Las Vegas nights and days offer bargain adventures for women

There are an almost unlimited number of attractive destinations throughout the world where mature women can seek out inexpensive vacations. An informed and frugal visitor can find bargains even at the most luxurious of them. It’s just a matter of taking advantage of the opportunities to enjoy it all without paying high prices. Here are some examples:

1. Las Vegas: Glittering and glamorous Sin City can be one of the most expensive vacation destinations of the world if you do what you’re expected to do. That’s gamble your life savings away in the casinos. However, a savvy woman can enjoy everything Vegas has to offer ... luxury rooms, gourmet dining, Broadway entertainment and great night clubs ... at bargain prices. For example, The Rio All-Suite Resort’s Sunday Champagne Brunch costs $30, and includes all-you-can-eat custom cooking of dishes from ten ethnic sources, dozens of desserts and endless champagne. Luxury two-room suites that would cost from $500 and up in New York, London or Paris go for as low as $45 a night. www.riolasvegas.com.
