This makes me wonder if I should allow banner ads on my 'puter after all. Nah, I think I'll leave it as it is.

What's the catch? I never trust those kind of "too good to be true" deals. Do you fly here ona pterodactyl and stay in a flea bag hotel?

Jan, I think he'll have to pay for those upgrades. I don't click on things because who knows where they'll take you or what they'll say you've agreed to. I do hope this trip is really something good. Just because I'm a cynical pessimist doesn't mean I don't have that pesky optimistic streak hanging around.

Jan - yeah, as far as I can tell it's a flea bag hotel. I've emailled them and asked them to explain the negatives reviews about their hotel AND to honestly tell me why I should waste money on 'the extras' ...
