The Morning Shave

VIP nanny service: The secret to juggling kids and business trips. – I’ve never thought about hiring a nanny service while traveling. As I begin to work more and more during trips, this could be a real lifesaver in certain situations. Have you ever thought about using a nanny service?

The Netherlands Will No Longer Be Called Holland. – I always wondered why there were completely different names for the same country. The article helps explain why there were two names and why they are eliminating “Holland” from their marketing. Timothy and I were in Amsterdam this fall and it was wonderful. I highly recommend visiting The Netherlands.

Ingenious Packing Tips Every Traveler Should Know. – Good tips from this article. My clothing is wrinkled on a regular basis, so I’m going to try folding multiple garments together from now on to see how much that reduces the wrinkles.

Bizarre: United Airlines Eliminating Bag Sizers At Gates. – Ideas like this sound good. Most normal people would think that eliminating bag sizers would also eliminate arguments because of good customer service. Plus, there’s an assumption of respect between the gate agent and the passenger. However, if you’ve flow at any time recently, you would know that people are irrational and, left to their own devices, they’ll argue until blue in the face. The boarding process is going to get worse with this new policy.

New Delta App Feature Tells You When Your Zone is Boarding! – I love it when technology makes life easier. When I’m at the airport, I want to spend as much quality time in the lounge as possible. And, if I can’t, I want to find someplace to sit down, relax, and catch up on reading. With this new feature, I’ll have more time to do both. What are your thoughts?
