Want to climb one of world's deadliest volcanoes before it erupts again? I'm thrilled to see my Mount St. Helens story on BBC Travel​ on birthday of Sherry Antoniak​. She did climb w/me.. This is  the 35th anniversary of its eruption (an event we remember vividly). http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20150501-the-deadliest-volcano-in-the-continental-us
Hike the deadliest volcano in the continental US – before it erupts again

Sick of awful airline seats? Me too. Go with Southwest, Alaska or JetBlue if you want legroom. . . "Passengers looking for a domestic flight with extra legroom in coach at no extra charge should probably consider flying Southwest Airlines, Alaska Airlines or JetBlue when practical because these carriers have the most daily flights with seats that have seat pitch of 32 inches or greater."  

The following table details Routehappy’s findings that Southwest has the most daily flights (996) with roomy seats for free, followed by Alaska (752), and JetBlue (582). Routehappy defines roomy seats as those having a pitch of 32 inches or greater, while standard pitch is a relatively cramped 31 inches.

"Jennifer Weiner is a master of what I’ve taken to calling the haterbrag. Think of it as the humblebrag’s evil (but funner) stepsister, a bit of social media sleight-of-hand that turns an insult into an asset " Mastering the Art of the Haterbrag http://slate.me/1EZQkeE

Yes, Boston Patriots finally having to admit they cheated. Won't appeal loss of first round draft choice, $1 million fine and lost of 2017 fourth round draft choice.

But quarterback Tom Brady still can't admit he cheated. He's appealing his 4 game, hand slap suspension.
