Random Musings

I recently purchased the Aquasana Shower Filter (costs around $60) and wanted to plug the product. A couple of months ago, our water was off due to some building maintenance and I had to resort to washing my face and hair with purified water. I was amazed at how great my skin and hair felt [...]

I flew from SFO to JFK on Song – Delta’s answer to JetBlue. Overall the planes are pretty good. They seem better than AA and Delta’s normal economy seating.
