Commercial air travel is already filled with annoyances like shrinking personal space, overpriced meals and frequent delays. For many people, there's one bright spot to flying: A forced break from making, receiving and hearing phone calls.
That could change with the Federal Communication Commissions new proposal to drop the ban on cellular connections and allow phone calls once a plane reaches 10,000 feet.
The FCC first pitched the idea in 2004, before the rise of the smartphone. The reaction from passengers and flight attendant unions at the time was loud and negative: phone calls on planes would be disruptive, annoying and a potential safety issue. The FCC decided against the proposal.
No kidding 69 days is a long time!
A train crash in the Bronx with fatalities doesn't earn a blog. If you keep on controlling your payroll your bottom line will still be red.
Initially, the operator said the brakes failed. Now they're questioning about the speed of the train. sure hope it isn't another case like in Spain where the operator was busy texting.
Same story 10 days and counting. WOO HOO. Goin for the gold.
Lol @ bobcat! That was cute. The most they can hope for is bronze and i probably spelled that wrong.
Too bad that they don't offer lead. They've set the bar so low, just about any site can step over them.

A woman is paying for some purchases at Macy’s. As she reaches for her card, a TV remote control falls out of her purse. The sales clerk asks, “Do you always carry your TV remote?” “No.” the woman says, “But my husband refused to come shopping with me today. I figured this was a great way to pay him back.”
Times sure are changing.
Thanks and good morning @bobcat. very appropriate for the buying frenzy gripping folks these days.
I was kind of hoping to catch you here today my friend.
An article by that admirable vet Gordon Duff in 'Veterans Today' worth your attention and that of other bloggers " Iran Deal a Blow to Fraudsters".
It's good to see you again my friend. Thank you for the info. I will check it out and hope to catch you here later.
I've been trying to respond for the last couple hours to no avail. But I'll try once more.
I read the article you directed me to and my eyes were opened. Not by the fact that this was a blind push by the powers that be, like the WMDs of Iraq, but by how long this farce has been perpetuated. It pleases me to see Netanyahu being put in his place and being further exposed for the deceitful person he is.
Its my hope that more and more Americans get to realize what has really been going on, for the sake of this country of ours.
I also hope that other bloggers especially @dazzle@chrissy@banasy@JI-F take a moment to research this article.
Have a good one.
