Mastering Some Woodford Reserve

It’s easy to write things off, whether it’s because of bad experience, ancillary influences or even just outright familiarity. I haven’t always been as even tempered as I am these days, and there was definitely a time in my career where if I was 10 people deep at the bar and you asked for a big name product I sure as hell didn’t want to sell you that product because haven’t you seen everything else on the bar?! 831 more words

Airplanes and Food - AA First Class Meal Review

I had the opportunity for an upgrade to first class on both legs of my American Airlines November trip between BWI and DFW (B737).  Two by two seating vs three by three on a multi-hour flight maintains some basic human dignity that some airlines seem hell-bent on removing, but that is a different subject for a different time.   316 more words
