We're excited. Cheryl and I made reservations tonight to fly to Seoul, 대한민국, for a weekend in April. Cost: 25,000 One-Pass miles each.

Here is an idea with lots of POTential on Guam. KFC will be paying the city of Louisville, Kentucky $3,000 to fix 350 potholes. In exchange KFC will be allowed to paint over the filled holes with a stencil that reads, "Re-freshed by KFC." Creative. ~ link (audio)
