Despite all the warnings, every year shoppers fill the cars with gifts and return to the mall to shop.  Once their shopping is completed they return to an empty car with a broken window.   At an Sacramento area mall yesterday.  The victim thought the security camera would protect their belongings.  His wife, wants the mall to replace the items since the crime happen on their property.   Many of the victims will not take responsibility for their stupidly. These crimes will happen in all the best neighborhoods, shopping malls, hotels, parking garages and airports this weekend. With Common Sense missing in action.

Stupid on Parade 

Why brave the crowds at the malls, when people make it so easy for thieves to simply break a window. Everyone at their (the thieves) home will be genuinely surprised at Christmas.

Sacramento to LA for $15 bucks? Say Hello to the FlixBus


Bus Wars? 

A few years ago an Bus alternative to Greyhound entered the Sacramento market,  Megabus with fares as low as $1.00 to Reno and San Francisco.   The San Francisco leg is extremely popular.  Giving Sacramentians a lower cost option for communters to the city.        Last January, the company discontinued its Reno-Sparks route.

 

A new player is entering the market. German-based bus carrier FlixBus announced new destinations in California on Thursday, including Sacramento, San Francisco, Bakersfield, Oakland and San Jose.

 

Trips from Sacramento to Los Angeles are as low as $14.99. Some are $19.99. Trips the other way are at $19.99. Trips to San Francisco are just $4.99.   They offer a route from L.A to Vegas for $7.00.   Unlike,Megabus Flexbus will offer snacks on some of it’s routes.

Update: Fares for Thursday and Friday are closer to $40.

FlixBus, which began in Germany, expanded to the United States in May of this year and plans to a major player in Transpotation in United States.  They plan to open in Stockton, Modesto, Merced  Fresno.and Reno.

Buses are coming back, But think Amazon.  No brick and morter stations.  Booking and paying online.  Book in advance and save?  There  prices are much lower on average than Greyhound and considerabley lower than the train.   They offer Free WiFi and charging stations.    Millennials seem to be the primary customer base .

The buses will be a true low cost alterative to the airlines.  Megabus makes one stop between the Bay Area and Los Angeles.  Traveltime between Northern Cailfornia and Southern Cailfornia will be six to seven hours compared to a one hour flight.    However once you factor, arrival time, security, travel time to the central city. (if your renting a car at LAX add an additional hour) the time difference is four hours.

I’ve expericed the MegaBus and loved it

How ya gonna keep ’em down on the farm After they‘ve seen Paree was a popular song after World War 1.

With a many of the soldiers living in rural areas there was a concern that some wouldn’t want to return to life on the farm after seeing Paris.

The city has quite a history. It was destroyed by fire several times.(that’s more than once👀)

It has a very contentious history with its black community.

St. Paul Baptist Church – Founded in 1867 by former slave Elijah Barnes, it was among independent black Baptist congregations which freedmen quickly set up after the Civil War. Most of them left the Southern Baptist Convention, creating their own associations. This is registered at the state and federal level as the second-oldest African-American Baptist church in the state.

There are many local attractions in around Paris. If your visiting the Dallas area , Paris might a good one day trip. And at the end of the day you CAN SAY, (wait for it)

 

 

 

 

 

You’ve been to Paris.

$49 to Denver or Las Vegas “Frontier Airlines Returns to Sacramento International”


Frontier Airlines (2nd) Airbus A321-211 WL N701FR (msn 6793) (Owl) (Jacques Guillem Collection). Image: 936802.

Killer Diller Low Airfares are coming to Sacramentio

After a five year absence Frontier Airlines is returning to Sacramento International August 1.   With four week daily flights to Denver and Las Vegas beginning August 12th.

When Frontier left Sacramento, they were a discount Airline, similar to Southwest.

What is returning is a different airline an “Ultra Discount Carrier”  their fares are almost much lower than Southwest. The trade off is. Everything thing else is extra and they can add up quickly. Bring any backpack or carry on is $30. If you don’t prepay there could be a five to ten dollar surcharge. In fact you may find surcharges on anything isn’t paid for in advance.

Learning Curve

Most people aren’t prepared for Spirit or Frontier. That’s why they along with Allegiant have the most customers complaints of nearly all the  other Airlines. Prepare yourself for non reclining hard seats. With small tray tables. If you over 5 10 Its gonna be tight. If you are a wide body. It could be complete agony as the seats are smaller. Frontier is bare bones. Its gonna be crowded and uncomfortable. However if you pack light and prepare yourself for angry co passengers. The low, low, low fares might be worth it.  I know someone who flys Frontier exclusively.  She understands the culture and takes advantage of the airlines super low prices.      

This was my expericece in 2016 Click the Link Below for the full story.

Frontier is based in Denver, from Denver you can fly nearly anywhere in the country.

Here are 10 of the most romantic honeymoon destination ideas for 2018:

1. Bora Bora

This set of islands in French Polynesia is the stuff of honeymoon fantasies. The water is crystal clear, with green-covered mountains in the background. For accommodations, you might have a private, over-the-water cottage with your own patch of beach. There’s also a large coral reef not far offshore, which is perfect for snorkeling in the beautiful water.

2. Paris

3. Bali

This island in Indonesia is nicknamed Isle of the Gods. Doesn’t that sound like a heavenly vacation spot? Along with the beautiful scenery and culture of the island, it’s also excellent for privacy. Don’t miss the sunsets over the Indian Ocean. Hike up to the top of the surrounding cliff for the best views.

4. Venice

Aside from the beautiful hotels that are right on the water and the amazing history of the town, Venice is an incredibly romantic place. What could be better than a quiet gondola ride through the Grand Canal with your sweetie?

5. Cape Town

Located in South Africa, Cape Town has amazing beaches, beautiful landscape, and plenty to do. It’s the perfect place to visit if you love outdoor recreation. You can swim, surf, or participate in other beach activities. You can also trek around the nearby mountains, and take in the beauty of the land.

6. Harbour Island

This island in the Bahamas that’s open to the public offers white sandy beaches, the clearest water you’ve ever seen, and total serenity while you sip drinks on the beach. Though there’s plenty to do, you may not wish to leave the ocean’s edge.

7. Orkney

Orkney is a popular island destination off the coast of Scotland. It’s located off the northern archipelago and is perfect for those who dream of a honeymoon on green land by the sea.

8. Florence

Italy is such a romantic country altogether that it should be no surprise to see a second city on this list. Florentine culture is rich and oozing with history. The city is also an ideal base camp if you’re looking to explore multiple nearby Mediterranean cities. Rome, Venice, and the Amalfi Coast are all not far away.

9. Aruba

For honeymooners looking to sit by the beach and relax, Aruba is an excellent choice. It has near-perfect weather all year long, with beaches that stretch the length of the 20-by-6-mile island. If you get bored lounging around the poolside, there are restaurants, nightclubs, casinos, spas, and local events to attend.

10. Santorini

Greece is a hot travel destination for the upcoming year, and Santorini is a dreamy place. You can stay in a hotel on the Grecian cliffs overlooking the water. The beaches are composed of the red-and-black sand and bright blue water that’s specific to the Mediterranean Sea. It also has its own vineyards, which makes wine tasting an ideal part of your trip.

Start your marriage off right. Your spouse will be impressed with any of these choices, and you’ll build meaningful memories from the start.

By: Julie Delahave/Uk Mirror

When it comes to airport stays, most people immediately think of budget hotels with the bare essentials for getting a good night’s sleep pre-flight.

However, a new luxury hotel room opening up at London Heathrow has seriously upped the stakes with a host of glamorous offerings. We’re talking direct views of the runway, personal butler service, spa treatments and a host of delectable dining.

The best part? Passengers who stay overnight won’t have to pay a penny.

The project is a joint venture between Virgin Atlantic and Onefinestay who teamed up to turn part of London Heathrow Clubhouse into a Manhattan-inspired loft.

The clubhouse is usually reserved for Upper Class and Delta One customers – but for this offer, anyone travelling with Virgin Atlantic can bid to stay in the loft.

The room will be on offer to passengers flying between the 26th February to the 4th March – and with all of the current delays thanks to the weather, it could make for a stress-free experience as you wait for your flight.

The double room offers wall-to-wall views of the airport’s bustling runway and control tower, but has all the comforts you need to still get a great night’s sleep.

Not to mention that guests will also be treated to a host of A-lister worthy extras including a delicious afternoon tea, a 3-course meal and cocktails, and even an aromatherapy treatment just before bed.

Sounds like total bliss? You can book your stay on the Onefinestay website here – but you’ll need to be flying with Virgin Atlantic. You may want to act quickly too, as places are very limited!

What you’ll get during your stay

· A welcome from your personal butler

· Afternoon tea before being treated to a relaxing spa treatment

· A pre-dinner cocktail at the bar, followed by a 3-course meal in the brasserie with wine pairings

· Access to the cinema room and rooftop terrace

· Tailored de Mamiel, aromatherapy treatment before bed

· Breakfast in bed from the Clubhouse’s extensive menu and a selection of newspapers

· Refreshing shower and steam session, followed by an invigorating spa treatment including a haircut, shave or facial

· A five minute walk to board your Virgin Atlantic flight

Mark Anderson, Executive Vice President for Customer at Virgin Atlantic said: ” We always want flying with Virgin Atlantic to be extra special, and that’s why we’ve teamed up with onefinestay to offer this rare opportunity to stay in our London Heathrow Clubhouse.

“An area of our Clubhouse will be transformed into a luxury Manhattan loft, and will offer several lucky customers the best possible start to their trip.

“When staying in the Clubhouse guests will be able to enjoy all the fantastic amenities available to our Upper Class customers including use of our spa, brassiere, cocktail bar and view from our rooftop terrace. It’ll be an unforgettable start to their holiday.”

Meanwhile, Javier Cedillo-Espin, CEO of onefinestay, added: “onefinestay is renowned in the hospitality industry for its high-touch service and dedication to its customers so it made perfect sense to partner with a brand with a likeminded vision.
