    Greetings from the Editor
    by Carol Hall

    full story  | top
    My warmest greetings to all of you! I hope you enjoy our 'Travel and Vacation' issue of The On Ramp. I have included lots of information on vacations and travel as this seems to be what we enjoy doing for a week or two during the summers. I personally have utilized most of the online travel tips provided for you in this issue. I have booked my flights, reserved my hotels and purchased tickets for events long before vacation time rolled around. I have used the 'online maps and driving directions' LOTS. I was unfortunate enough to be born without a 'directional gene', and therefore have wasted much time driving around being lost. Now, however, I take a few minutes to get driving directions BEFORE leaving home (even if it is just across town) and it has saved me much time, gas and frustration. Happy Travels!

    As I read through her recipe, I see that it is very similar to mine, with one... - CONTINUED

    Murphy's 10 Laws For Flyers
