How French Women Don't Get Fat According to a Song

    While having dinner with our friends from the States I asked French Husband to put some music on so he connected his favorite channel and Charlie Brown's theme song came on. Giggling I said, "Oh that is a Snoopy's song!" French Husband gave me a puzzling look as he read the name of the song on his cell phone, "No it says: "Chase Your Fate to the Wind" But instead of saying "fate" he pronounced it "Fat". "Chase your Fat to the Wind".   And just like that, I knew I had the answer to the ques...

Crossing Río de la Plata from Uruguay to Buenos Aires, Argentina

After going back and forth between the Colonia Express and the Buquebus ticket booths at Montevideo’s Tres Cruces Terminal, after checking the Sunday schedule several times and after converting Uruguayan pesos to Argentinian pesos to Reais in my head—don’t ask, somehow it was easier to compare prices—, I realized the cheapest way to go back to Buenos Aires was to take the 7:45 a.m. bus/boat combination across Uruguay and Río de la Plata. Fuck me. “What time do I have to be here?” The two people ...

These migrations have helped California become the richest and most populous state in the union. But they’ve also created a less seen side of the Golden State: ghost towns. There’s an incredible number of ghost to...

Barclays AAdvantage Offer Increased to 60,000 Miles After First Purchase (Lots of Opportunities for Lots of Miles)

Meanwhile the Barclays consumer offer just got better. Whenever there are elevated offers for AAdvantage cards it's worth highlighting because American's having two different banks issuing their cards creates a huge opportunity for us.
