    • 4 nights at US Grant and only rent a car for the last 2 days?

      San Diego Sep 18, 2015 at 3:59 AM

      Hi All,

      I just wanted to run past through you my idea for my trip to San Diego next month. I'll spending 4 nights at the US Grant, therefore I was thinking of not renting a car for the first two days, and explore anything I can explore on foot. This is primarily to save the ridiculously expensive parking fee for two nights!

      I would then rent a car for the last two days so that I can explore a bit more of what's further afield.

      Does it sound sensible?

      Event in Napa, 10-17 & 10-18?

      Napa Sep 11, 2015 at 9:41 AM

      I thought I would try the forum to see if maybe someone could figure this out, because I've not been able to find it.
      My wife has a business meeting in Santa Rosa on the week of 10-12. We were going to drive up there and, once her meeting is finished on Friday, spend at least another night in the area. However, that weekend, the hotels get ridiculous, and I'm trying to figure out what's going on there.
      It seems to get worse as you move toward Napa, so I'm thinking that Napa is where the event is. Hotels in Fairfield are extremely high, while those in Concord are normal, and I may end up staying in Concord before flying out on another trip.
      Can anyone find this major event, just to satisfy my own curiosity?

      Porters in the airport (LAX)?

      Los Angeles Sep 27, 2015 at 9:46 PM

      My daughter will arrive in Los Angeles International Airport with two small children, a four-year-old and a not-yet-two-year-old. She'll have to get two big car seats from the baggage claim plus her luggage and will have to get everything and everybody out to the public arrival area, where our friends will meet them. Are there any porters in the baggage claim hall? I've read about Skycaps. Are they easily recognizable? I've read they expect to be tipped. How much would be appropriate? And I suppose they also expect to be paid. Can anyone tell me how much this is?
      Thank you for any information.

    • Children singing in the Capitol

      by gammasmith Online Now Apr 22, 2012 at 7:27 PM

      Dear Sir, On a recent school tour of our beautiful capitol, our guide
      commented on the lovely, perfect sound when we talk or sing on the 2nd
      floor of the rotunda below the dome. Our 4th and 5th graders had just learned
      Beethoven's 'Joyful, Joyful' and wanted to hear the reverberation. With only
      15 voices, the sound was amazing and sounded like 50. When they finished
      singing, we were advised by a staffer that singing in the Capitol is illegal. The children were. They had been taught that this was their Statehouse. Do you know why it is illegal? In other states, the governor invites children choirs to come and sing. Thank you, puzzled in Ventura
