The Events that are: My Life Archives

Things that go on in my life that cannot be catagorized somewhere else, sort of a catch-all

  1. 2016 Year in Cities

    Apparently I did a lot of flying last year — 101584 miles worth. I was lucky enough to carried via British 747-400 for many of my trips (my first trip on a 747 since 2006). I climbed the Alaska Airlines points ladder pretty quickly, finally hit MVP Gold 75K (after a couple of close years), and…

  6. The Bank Transfer Solution

    Problem: I have a checking account at Bank A and at Bank B, and I want to transfer money between the two. A bank-to-bank transfer takes three days and costs $5 per a transfer. There’s an option to setup an account through another interbank organization, but I really don’t want to sign up for yet…
