I flew Delta instead of my preferred low-cost carriers, and I'm still not convinced doing so is worth the higher airfare

Flying Delta over a low-cost carrier.Taylor Rains/Insider I flew Delta over a low-cost carrier and I did not find the added bells and whistles worth the extra money. Just because I was flying on a legacy carrier did not mean I automatically got all the perks. While the onboard product was definitely nicer than Spirit or Frontier, I will forgo comfort for a cheaper ticket. Most people have a preference in which airline they fly, whether it be loyalty to one carrier or simply booking the chea...

Ornamental [1]

This will be a busy week for a lot of people, covid restrictions notwithstanding. Not so much for us, except for some food shopping for special holiday meals. So I thought I'd do a week of Christmas tree ornaments. I'll try to post some that I haven't in the past, but long-time readers will likely recognize some of these. The tiny canoe is made totally of carved wood. First, the image of the week this week is of a giant redwood, or is it a sequoia, ornament carved into a slice of wood. I like ...

Bubbles

Rue des Canettes has been transformed into rue des Bulles or Bubbles. It was a delight to see. Seen as you enter the street near the Saint Sulpice Church. Overhead. Passing a closed restaurant on the street. The bubbles end here at a bar selling drinks with bubbles, which I assume is mostly champagne.
