>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>LETTER FROM THE EDITOR<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Greetings Everyone!  I hope you all had a good Halloween, I was in Connecticut for the parties (I dressed up as the Y2K Bug).  This week I am back in the Bay area, enjoying the nice weather.  I added a few more features to this week's issue, I hope you like!
While I was in CT this weekend, I took the Connecticut Limo from Laguardia Airport  to CT.  It should only take around forty minutes, but every time I take CT Limo it takes me hours. I had boycotted them for a while, but decided to try them again (for some crazy reason). Well it didn't go so well, and I was pretty perturbed.  While driving in the slow lane I was thinking of slogans they should use:
 "CT Limo what a shitty way to start or end your trip."  "We are always late, we make more stops then any other service, and to top it off we're expensive." "Guaranteed to piss you off,   because we take two and a half  hours from LGA to CT, rather than one."
Why can't they be like the Marin Airporter in N. California.  They run every thirty minutes, it takes forty minutes to get to your destination and it costs around $10.  It's practically the same trip from SFO to Marin as it is LGA to CT and CT Limo makes you make a reservation, instead of going out to the curb every half hour. CT Limo is always late and it costs $36). Alternatives: Get a friend to pick you up or call Red Dot Shuttle or Prime Time Shuttle, both costs around the same ($36), but are more efficient.

***Please take the time to send me the email addresses of your friends who travel, and any tips or comments you might have.

TIP OF THE WEEK   by Chris McGinnis:
AIRPORT SAFETY TIPS:  SECURITY DISTRACTIONS: Thieves often operate in teams at security checkpoints. One will distract you and security personnel by setting off the metal detector while the other grabs your bag as it exits the x-ray conveyor belt. Wait until the person in front of you has cleared security before you place your luggage on the conveyer belt.

United Airlines - Fare Decrease After Ticket Purchase: It happens every so often. You purchase an airline ticket only to find later, that the airline has lowered the fare, announced a sale, or instituted a new fare. When this happens, you can receive a refund - even on non-refundable tickets. If, after you have purchased your United Airlines ticket and before you begin your trip, there is a decrease in the fare or a lower fare is offered, you may receive a refund of the difference provided: You do not change the origin, destination, stopover point, flights or dates shown on your ticket. You meet all the requirements of the new fare (advance purchase, minimum stay etc).  If you purchased a fare that imposes a fee for changes, this fee will be waived if you accept your

A man boards an airplane, and takes his seat. As he settles in, he glances up and sees the most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realizes she is heading straight towards his seat. A wave of  nervous anticipation washes over him.  Lo and behold, she takes the seat right beside his. Anxious to strike up a conversation, he blurts out, "So where are you flying to today?" She turns and smiles, and says, "To the annual Nymphomaniac Convention, in Chicago."
 He swallows hard, and is instantly CRAZED with excitement.  Here's the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen, sitting RIGHT next to him, and she's going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs.  Struggling to maintain his outward cool, he calmly asks, "And what's your role at this convention?"
 She flips her hair back, turns to him, locks onto his eyes, and says, "Well, I try to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."
"Really" he says, swallowing hard. "And what myths are those?" She explains: "Well, one popular myth is that African American men
are the most well-endowed when, in fact, it is the Native American Indian who  is most likely to possess this trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who romance women best."
 "How very interesting," the man responds.  Suddenly, the woman becomes very embarrassed, and blushes. "I'm sorry," she says, "I feel so awkward discussing this with you, and I don't even  know your name."   The man extends his hand and replies, "Tonto. Tonto Goldstein."
