Travel Etiquette




Summer time means travel plans! Whether you are taking a plane, train, or automobile...let's go ahead and throw cruise ship in the mix with these...there are other people around you to consider. Here are my top 4 travel tips:

1. If YOU cannot lift it, check it. Do not be a nuisance by trying to lift heavy, overstuffed luggage overhead.


2. Dress comfortably, not sloppy. You'll have a better chance of getting into First class if you look the part.

3. Don't forget to tip. Skycap $1-2/bag, maid $2-5/day at the end of your stay.


4. Watch what you eat and drink before you board. 2 words...Bodily Functions.

Hang up and Drive - Saturn Vue Hybrid





Best Feature: Ummm it's a Hybrid... the gas mileage hands down.

Worst Feature: Nothing much the seats in back went all the way down but it was a bit heavy to pull back up.

Techno Features? XM radio, OnStar of course. Power everything.

Girl Friendly? Yes, you know it really really is good for us girls who have got a lot going on.

Trunk Space? And how. When I was taping this weekend I put the seats down and sat crossed legged in the back. I ate lunch and redid my makeup (for the camera).

My Take: Man the hybrid technology is amazing. This should not be the exception, it should be the rule with cars. We really are saving the environment. Driving a Hybrid make yo feel like you're doing something really responsible for our planet. The Saturn Vue is a really great car whether you're single married, kids or not. This size is just perfect. Hey this is cool- rather tan a spare tire, tee's a tire sealant and inflator kit. Hows that for saving our earth? I want a Hybrid.

How many folks I saw that need to hang up and drive? I was only distracted by 4 annoying folks this time.






My hand is actually burning on the hood HA!!

This is the console


That Hybrid Technology

Yes I can sit cross legged in the back- no problem
