Your blog editor is Frank Hurdle. I'm a native of Holly Springs, Mississippi; and a graduate of Ole Miss, B.A. and J.D. I buy and sell rural land and practice law.
My philosophy of life is simple: When society or the free market rewards an activity -- monetarily or through approbation -- then society will get more of that activity. Punish an activity -- through taxation or otherwise -- and you will get less of it. Unfortunately, the geniuses who run this fine country of ours haven't figured this out yet.
At least this woman is loyal to her loyalty program
As many of you know, I love collecting hotel and airline points. Now that Jinny does most of the traveling I help manage her accounts to get her the maximum number of loyalty points.
Many people who are members of these various loyalty programs aren't aware that there are frequent bonuses for which one must register. These bonus offers are often substantially more lucrative than the standard point awards.
In talking to some of Jinny's colleagues, I've found that all of them are registered for various hotel loyalty programs and virtually none of them are aware of the various bonuses. And in fact, It's been hard to get her to elbow for the points in the same way that I do; but she's improving.
I saw this photo on another travel site. You have to admire this woman's dedication to the cause!
