Physicist cuts plane boarding time in half | Crave - CNET: 'via Blog this'

If only things could be so easy! I imagine the algorithm breaks down, when folks are running late, and aren't present to take a seat when the algorithm says go to your seat and sit.

I'm A Big Fan of Wine-Knows Travel . . .

I love the folks at Wine-Knows Travel!

I'm big fans of theirs.  We've joined them on food & wine tours in 2005 (Avignon, Southern/Northern Rhone, Burgundy, Alsace, Champagne), and 2008 (Bordeaux, St. Emilion, through the Dordogne Valley to Colliure).  Both were great food and wine trips with lots of educational experiences.

I'm so pleased to see them launch their blog:   Wine-Knows: Fine Wine & Gourmet Food Journeys for the Discerning Traveler.

Check it out!


Google Hotel Finder

Nice feature!

Google Hotel Finder lets you search for U.S. hotels in a given city by date, location on a map, price, hotel class, and user rating.

I especially like the capability to expand or limit the geographic area to search by dragging the boundaries of the search area "shape."

Very cool.

Who would've guessed.

We just came back from a visit to North Carolina.  During our stay there, we learned that:
"North Carolina is home to more than 100 wineries. The number of wineries has more than quadrupled since 2001. The industry has two focuses — native muscadine grapes and European-style vinifera grapes" (http://www.visitncwine.com/)

We just returned from a fabulous week of vacation in NC. We stayed at this fabulous property in Oak Island, NC, "Another Whim" - Oak Island, NC

A great property on the beach!  ... and we saw the dolphins swim by too!
