Just a reminder that on October 30th, Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks need to be turned back one hour. It's also a great time to check your smoke detectors and update your emergency preparedness bags. I've heard it said that our ambition can be demonstrated by what we do with that one extra hour of life...you better believe I'll be sleeping in. :)
Now is the time to start planning that spring break vacation! If you're interested in a particular resort or hotel and want to learn more about it check out www.tripadvisor.com where you can read reviews from regular people who stayed there and want to share their experiences, both good and bad. Also check out www.frommers.com for some good info. I like using www.orbitz.com to compare prizes on an easily readable spreadsheet. I've never had any problems booking cars, hotel, or airfare on orbitz. You can often save money by booking directly on a vender's own web site and some
people swear by www.priceline.com (I've never had success with it, and
besides, I don't swear...) :)
Marie Calendars is having their special "Any pie for $5.99" all month long.
Hurry! You're running out of time! Don't forget to turn in those pie tins and you'll get one even cheaper! Considering some of their pies are usually $12.00 it's a great time to pick one up (if you don't mind also picking up a
few pounds) :)
If you don't want to commit to a season pass and can only handle a theme park in small increments of time, LegoLand will admit you into their park for FREE at 4:00 pm. Just remember, they close at 5:00! That's one hour of free play time!
