    • RE: car rental; car design centers

      Detroit Feb 19, 2015 at 4:12 AM

      Two Detroit-area questions:

      (1) Please suggest what you think is the best current deal for a one-week economy-car rental
      pick up and drop off at Detroit-Wayne Airport. I've checked on line, of course; but seek recent, local
      feedback, if possible.

      (2) In the Greater Detroit area -- aside from The Henry Ford Museum and the Chrysler Center museum-exhibit -- what in your opinion are the best current car design centers that a curious, medium-experienced adult car buff person
      can visit and learn from?

      Thank you!

    • airline ticket conundrum

      Detroit Feb 17, 2015 at 7:33 AM

      17 February, 2015.

      Dear Fellow Virtual Tourist People,

      I have an airline ticket problem and don't know how to solve it.
      I seek advice, please.

      That is, this last Saturday I booked & paid for a round-trip ticket Europe/USA/Europe -- for a business meeting I have there about a month from now. I am freelance.

      Today (Tuesday) I got word that they changed the date of my USA meeting, and now -- with the ticket I bought last Saturday -- I will arrive four days late for this
      important meeting.

      How can I change or cancel my ticket and not loose the money I have paid? I still need to go to USA -- but don’t want to have to buy a whole new ticket (and forfeit the first round trip ticket!).

      My credit card covers cancellation costs for: (1) medical reasons; (2) a salaried job when starting date for employment suddenly changes; (3) loss of employment; (4) employer suddenly changes my vacation dates.

      Unfortunately I qualify for none of the above.

      How can I change or cancel my ticket?

      By the way, I have already checked with the people I bought the ticket from, and since I have paid fully for this flight (that's now the wrong date!) they will not refund or change my flight.

      Last possibility: can anyone recommend a really good last-minute on line ticket deal site for Europe/USA flights?

      Thank you all very much for whatever advice you might be able to give.

      Yours, a worried traveler: Eurycleia

    • Kennedy and Pray

      by muskratlove Online Now Apr 14, 2005 at 2:27 PM

      I have a beautiful calendar from 1932 from The Kennedy and Pray coal and farm implements biz in Bates. It is interesting to note that the 1932 calendar is in accordance with todays 2005 calendar.

      I am wondering if the Kennedy and Pray biz is still operating and if they have some of there old calendars hanging around.

      What was Bates like in 1932?

      How many operating farms do you have in Bates now?

      Thankyou for answering my many questions.
