Book Review: The Jerusalem Creed

25844587Two months ago I downloaded the book, “The Jerusalem Creed” by Ernest Dempsey. I decided to give it a try as I am generally a thriller novel fan. The good news with this book, I finished it … and that’s about it.

I will try to cover as much of the book as possible and probably will spoil a lot of it. But to be honest, I have already forgotten some details and skimmed over large parts of the book that was just people talking about nothing…. So there is a solid chance I won’t ruin that much.

Getting a hotel cheaper than the listed price

In the next month I have a planned trip to Nashville, TN, where Rachel and I will get to hang out with a bunch of my Purdue University friends. It’s something we are very excited for and very fortunate that we had enough points to cover our room for free for two nights at the local Hyatt Place.

My friends decided to book a room at the same hotel and paid the cheapest rate they saw on the website. There is another option though that the majority of people don’t consider and that is to buy the points required to stay in the room.

My other travel blog and managing these two

introduceWhen I created this website, it was solely as something to have fun with, to write about whatever I felt.

One aspect of this blog that I wanted to write about was to talk about travel, since that is a big part of my life.

The only problem, I have another blog and can’t write the same things, but I will try to remedy that!

Why I don’t like American Airlines

For those who follow the blogging world of the travel industry, one airline seems to be better than the rest of the airlines based in the United States. That airline would be American Airlines. Bloggers love the airline. People seem to love the airline.

It’s an airline that I just can’t get on board with (pun intended) and generally is hard to explain to people why I despise them so. But I hope this post shows a small example of why I don’t like American Airlines.

Book Review: Cujo by Stephen King

CujoRecently I wrote about giving up on a book and if I should just push my way through the novel or move onto something else. After I wrote that post, I got to an exciting part of the book that kept me going for about 30 more pages! Then I gave up. The book slowed right back down to the point of me not caring anymore. I decided I would read a shorter book to help break things up, then maybe come back to the other book later.
After looking through our stack of books, I decided to read Cujo by Stephen King and after reading it, I thought it would be fun to review the book. So here we go reviewing Cuuuuuujjjjjoooooooooo. (Read the book, you will get that comment later on and laugh and think I am clever).

Game of Thrones, what are you becoming?

Three years ago (about) Rachel and I got into a little show called “Game of Thrones.” We didn’t know much about it, other than people were obsessed with it and it was based off some books.

InbredWe got the first three season on Blu Ray and we became obsessed. We watched the entire first season in two days. The next two seasons went down almost as fast. Needless to say, we were hooked. We couldn’t get enough. It led to Rachel and I getting the books and reading through most of them. She finished the first three, I am still on the third (I have other reading to do!). Now entering its sixth season, and finally able to watch the show since we have access to HBO, we were expecting so many great things, and now over half way into the season, we are kinda just waiting for it to be done.
