Technology Rocks!!!

It's just now noon and I'm already checked in and holding a boarding pass for my 3:30 flight to Chicago thanks to SAS's internet check-in option.  I didn't think it was available for international flights to the U.S., but I'm so glad I was wrong. This means I have a lot more time to get …

Clearly I’m NEVER too tired to eat or shop…

Greetings from the Heartland, where Dr. D and I have been nothing if not efficient!  As of noon today and we'd already been to Super Target (for Einstein's jalapeno bagels and pepperjack cheese), to Krispy Kreme for a free sample donut and coffee, and to Super Walmart to stock up on all the usuals…over-the-counter cold medicine, Smucker's All …
