I don't know when you are flying but I know you were worried. I just got back from my vacation. I had 6 flights, some long, some short. 4 Airlines. None of them were international, but nothing had changed since the terrorist incident on Christmas or the other one in Europe. I actually was in the air when that one happened. On all the flights the pilots asked that no one get up 10 minutes before landing, but gave us a warning so that we could use the restroom one last time. Hopefully things will continue this way. Security wasn't too bad either. Best of luck on your flights.

Thanks, Zanne.  My flights are over superbowl weekend.  You would have to sit down in the last 10 minutes for decent anyway so that's not too bad.  I still hate flying but it doesn't sound as bad as I imagined.  How was your trip? I didn't even hear about the event in Europe - too busy working.

My trip was wonderful! We did an early 25th anniversary trip and took our daughters. So lots (too much?) of family time which is rare now that they are in college and living on their own. I think I was the only one who wasn't quite ready to come home.

My CD was all messed up while I was gone, but it worked out well. Instead of making 4 - 5 trips a day, I only needed to go every few days. But no real pain, Very strange. I guess my body doesn't like flying or strange environments.

I hope you have a good trip and things go very smoothly for you.
