When kids throw up and your travel plans are turned upside down...

The first rule of airline travel...
is don't get on the plane if you can't handle delays. We were supposed to leave Dulles at 12:30pm on Monday for a flight to Toronto. From there, we were going to catch a 4:50 flight to Tel Aviv. Well, our 12:30 flight didn't leave Washington until 7pm. This...

Waking up at 4am
I can't say that I enjoy the process of getting up at 4am, but I have to say that I do like the results. I read an article in the WSJ a year or so ago a bout people who get up early. It seemed crazy, but I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm kind of a believer ...
