    If the the technology has advanced so much, why are the bathrooms on planes such ratholes? No improvements in there. Just hope a slippery one isn't making it's way down the chute.:D

    Never use the things.... Rather bust a gut. My flight was delayed 2 hours because the plane had a "strong smell of urine" back in steerage. I didn't do it, I swear!

    Just passed over Jacksonville. Rocket Maaaaaan.......:D

    That's why Procter & Gamble invented adult diapers Carl! :)
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    How much did internet access cost I wonder. Hopefully not more than bringing an extra bag :)

    Technology is wonderful, but at a price :)

    It was "free" this trip (for the price of my email address.) T-Mobile normally charges $12.95 for a single flight usage. At that rate it will go by the way of the inflight telephones.

    Mike,

    Are you in Florida to stay?

    BTW, Delta has free Wi-Fi on many of it's flights. typically, on the bigger aircraft.

    Thanks Joe. We like to fish from the pier (approach to the old bridge) on the southeast end. About a 20 minute drive from the house.

    I'm still shuttling from Annapolis to Sarasota for a few weeks. The family is still in Maryland until school ends. Most of my stuff is in Sarasota to stay already. :D

    I fly Delta quite a bit. I must not be getting the larger aircraft when I hub through Atlanta, usually to another destination in the southeast.
