Not Your Mother's Ebay Auction

 

Well, by now, I’m sure that each of us is subscribed to at least a few of the discount shopping sites à la Ideeli, Gilt, RueLaLa, etc… And then the Deal-of-the-Day sites, à la Groupon. Will we ever buy retail again?

Of course, all of these shopping platforms have been born to the Web, which has made it all possible. The latest shopping discount model? Online auctions that combine auctions  with the…

Surrounded By Beauty

Follow my blog "Rub Some Dirt On It" at http://vermontwhitneys.blogspot.com

 

I used to live in San Diego, California, quite possibly one of the most beautiful places in the world and without question the most beautiful place I have ever lived.  My life then was lazy and chaotic, rocking Uggs and flip flops, exploring mountains and deserts and beaches.  But the most central part of my casual life in SoCal…

Flying with kids- What goes around comes around

In the past week I have read a few stories about traveling with kids and the disparity between those who travel with them and those who don’t. Of course the latter group is highly against the former being anywhere near them when they're traveling, especially flying . We parents know that most kid-less travelers wish our families would take a kids-only airline somewhere or better yet, stick to the back of the plane with a sound proof partition around us. We get it. They’re looking for a…

The Gift of Irony

Pa on his last day at the farm with Oma and his 16 grandkids

 

Two years ago I was pregnant with my sixth baby and boarded a 15 hour flight with my five small children. I was horrified to discover that the airline had put me beside a small child…

Inconsiderate Fu*kers!

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/11/inconsiderate-fuckers.html



After my initial horrific solo mUm travel experience, I developed a strong 'fuck you' approach towards anyone who even dared look in my direction when Michael cried, however, on my recent international travels, again as solo mUm, my patience and language profanity ability were truly tested!



The story begins, again, as our 36-hour… Continue

A Letter From A Remarkable Cat

UPDATE: Dash is coming to Spain!



Dear Potential Servants,



I'm Dash - quite possibly the most remarkable, handsome and unusual cat that you're ever likely to have the privilege of meeting.



But I digress.



I'm writing this because mUm and Dad just confirmed that unless that whiney black fuzz ball… Continue

Traveling with special diets

I considered myself to be a pretty healthy eater until this past Tuesday when I attended a lecture called "Special Diets for Special Children." As if traveling and eating healthy wasn't hard enough, now I'm faced with traveling and supporting a special diet for my kids. Talk about pre-planning...

Cause I'm leaving on a jet plane...(http://notanotherdirtydiaper.blogspot.com/)

Yup, call me crazy but I did it. I booked myself a flight to the psych ward...well, not quite but.... I did do what some believe is the unthinkable. I booked myself and my two "toddler" daughters on a cross country (San Diego to Newark) trip for the holidays and am flying solo....meaning no hubs in sight.

Why?…

TripIt App Review



I’ve been a Disney Passporter girl for at least a decade, faithfully purchasing a new guide book for each trip to get all the latest and greatest information, organize my plans and track our spending. But I hate, absolutely loathe carrying that guidebook around with me. As soon as I got my iPhone last year, I decided that I needed a way to put all that Itinerary information that I keep in my Passporter into the… Continue

A Wild Adventure…

Travelling of any sort is always a crap shoot for me. Aside from the logistics of 4 kidlets, (although, with everyone out of “babyhood”, I have finally become adept enough at packing that I can leave behind the kitchen sink!), the Griswold moniker is well earned…I seem to encounter “adventures” that fall outside of the typical. Moreover, MY typical usually falls within…

Earth Promise: A No-Brainer for the Summer Traveller

June 1st, 2010

airport-water It’s hot and we need to stay hydrated. But to what expense? If you are an avid airline traveler, then you know the drill: guzzle down that $3 (and at some airports $5!!) bottled water before walking through the security check point. How many of you have actually tossed that half full (or half empty) bottle into the trash (or hopefully…

THE "SKY CURTAIN" SEPARATING ME FROM THEM!!!!!



Look familiar? Ah, yes, the paradoxical gird-iron (thin-as-toilet-paper)

curtain that separates the plane into 2 groups. I've been flying for 32

years & only once have I been on the other side of the curtain.

Admittedly, when I had that chance, I LOVED it! I felt like a princess.…

Is Turning 16 Changing?

I don't know about you, but when I was a teenager, I couldn't wait until I could drive. My Dad taught me in my neighborhood before I took Driver's Education at school. He took the time to make sure I knew what I was doing behind the wheel. As a matter of fact, I am one of the only women drivers I know to this day who can parallel park. That can be attributed directly to my Dad.



Now I hear that…

Why taking a break from your kids is important

Do you remember the first time you found out you were pregnant? You probably experienced all sorts of emotions ranging from joy to fright. But then you had 40 weeks to adjust. Although some of those 40 weeks were probably laced with nausea, back pain and all other discomforts that accompany pregnancy, you were still in a peaceful environment, living a quiet life with your partner. Then the labor pains began (or in my case, the c-section was scheduled) and somehow you…
