FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Travel Site Absurdity

An expression of dismay!
I was just on Orbitz, Expedia, Travel-Ticker and several others whose names have slipped into obscurity.   I was doing a search for an extended family vacation.  The sites provide spots to put in how many kids, how many adults and how many rooms.  Then when you do a search you get an error message saying they can’t book more than 6 or 7 or whatever freaking arbitrary number that tickles their collective funny bone.   Why do they provide spots for data input if they can’t handle it?    It is astounding that these giant, sophisticated web sites are incapable of handling reservations at resorts for no more than 6 or 7 people.   Bottom line is that the idiots that limited the web sites have also limited the business for the resorts that use them.   I’m calling my travel agent and going old school, in spite of how difficult it is for me to admit it, this time the Internet sucked.
